Awesome. Just awesome. Earlier this morning, my cell phone gave me a low battery warning. I forgot about it and went on with my day. Sometime in the afternoon, a brother in-Christ and I began having some discussions about the Lord, the bible, etc. He is a believer, seeking, looking for truth, but hasn’t picked up the bible yet. Please pray for him, his name is Mark. Thank you.
We had a pretty long conversation, about an hour. This contact between us is so awesome because I see me in him many years ago. He says the same things, asks the same questions, and is seeking the truth. So cool, so cool. A great conversation.. he’s hungry!
At the end of the conversation, we said goodbye. I pulled the phone away from my ear and went to press the hangup button and my phone was off. Black screen, no lit up buttons. I press a couple of things, nothing. I hit the power button to turn the screen on, nothing. I hold down the power button to turn the phone on, nothing. Completely dead. Every other time on a dead phone, I’m at least able to get the phone to turn on, flash a screen, light up a button or something. It was completely dead.
God wanted that conversation to take place and nothing of this world was going to stop it. Is God awesome or what?
Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Patterns. I love patterns of life because they speak. Many of these patterns, if not all?, are lessons from God for our teaching and molding. I once heard Nate Elarton say, Learn the lesson or retake the course, it’s that simple. Here is a lesson that I have learned through repeated patterns. I have to wonder, is it God using the enemy for our purification? I pray it blesses you –
