The Protein Bar Miracle

“Humor is mankind's greatest blessing.”  -Mark Twain

At a health store I was about to purchase a protein bar that was priced at $1.59.  The cashier asked if I was a club member, and I told him no.  He said that price is special for members only, but it would cost me, a non-member, $2.12.  I told him I’d pass.  I heard him laugh at me as I walked away.  I went next door to the supermarket and picked up 3 bars for 3 bucks (equivalent to the amount I otherwise would have paid for 1 protein bar at the health store).  Proud of myself for finding a bargain, I handed the cashier the money and she handed me a coupon for a free protein bar!  I exchanged the coupon for the protein bar to have her hand me yet another coupon for a free protein bar! 

“It’s a protein-parade”—I thought to myself—“This has to be the best thing SINCE Jesus turned the water into wine!”  Now calling this a miracle may be a stretch, but I can say that because our Father is faithful, I am made full, literally.  God’s benefits aren’t saved for club elitists, they’re for common folks: the heath nut, the gym rat, and the marathon runner.  God favors all of His children!

The veil has been torn, and God’s blessing isn’t just on the Jews anymore, it’s on the Gentiles.  He’s as much for me as He is for you. 

Personally, I have yet to hear that audible voice booming from the heavens, but it’s the little things God does every day in which He whispers:  “I’m real, I love you, and I will provide for you.” 

Our Father gives blessing, favor, and prosperity. God knows just how to manifest Himself to you in relation to your situation, no matter what you’re going through. Today I pray that you be faithful because your Heavenly Father will always be.

That the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (Galatians 3:14, NKJV).
