Where God Guides, God Provides

In the early 1900s, God called Rees Howells and his wife to go to Africa as missionaries. They lived in Wales and didn’t have the funds to get to Africa. The Howells first needed to get to London to begin their faith journey.

They didn’t have enough money to buy train tickets all the way to London, but they did have enough to buy tickets to Llanelly station in Wales. From there they would have to catch another train to London, but they couldn’t buy tickets there because they had spent all their money to get to Llanelly.  

The train to London would arrive in two hours. As they sat in Llanelly station, they prayed for God to provide the ticket money before the train arrived. God told Rees to get in the ticket line. He took a step of faith and got in line behind a dozen people. As the line kept getting shorter, Rees continued to stay in line even though he was broke.

With only two people ahead of him, a man turned around and said he had changed his mind. Then the stranger put thirty shillings in his hand and walked away. It was the amount needed to buy their tickets to London! The miraculous provision was like the ram caught in the thicket at the last moment for Abraham (Gen. 22:13).

Rees and his wife served as missionaries and became a channel of revival in Africa. And it all started with trusting God for train tickets. Are you obeying what God is telling you to do?
