Psalm 21v 1&3
The king rejoices in your strength, Lord. How great is his joy in the victories you give!
You came to greet him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head. (Psalm 21:1, 3 NIV)
Twenty seven years ago I was expecting my eighth child, John. I remember reading the Psalm mentioned above. A mother needs to give special attention to her teeth when she is expecting a baby. I was going to my dentist. He discovered one of my molars needed a crown. He said I can give you a gold crown for this tooth, free. Dental care is free when one is pregnant. I remembered the Psalm I had read, “I will put a gold crown upon your head.”
Within two weeks I had a shiny gold crown fitted on my tooth. People are often surprised that my teeth are strong after having fourteen babies. I had a good dentist and rather than take a tooth out when it was decayed, he preserved it and fitted a crown. I have a mouth full of gold crowns! I have been blessed by God.
When I was in Dawson Creek back in November 2013 one of my gold crowns dislodged from a tooth. I was anxious that my tooth would be sensitive and if I got to a dentist it would be expensive. Our host got a dental appointment. He checked it out and suggested I wait to see my own dentist back home. Thankfully I was not in pain and the appointment was 50 dollars.
Two months on, today, I got a new gold crown fitted. My tooth is restored to better than before. God is a God of restoration. I persevered two months with a jagged tooth in my mouth till today I have a strong smooth,gold crowned tooth. One of the gifts of God is to enjoy your food. I enjoyed my dinner when I got back home.
Have you had a promise that God gave you, fulfilled? Tell me about it.
