“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted” (Job 5:9).
I had another miracle a few months ago, and it was so raw and so emotional, I’ve had to wait to tell the story. We had a major upset happening in our life – something just very wrong was going on, and it was one of those that it wasn’t your fault, there was nothing you could do about it, but bad, bad things were flowing, and there seemed to be no stopping it. I had met with the parties involved, talked things out, came to no good conclusion, and left the meeting just bereft, without hope, devastated. I cried all the way home, went to bed crying, woke up in the night crying, Tom holding my hand across the bed, and when I woke up the next morning, the tears began again before I even put my feet on the floor.
Now, this is not like me – I hope you know that – thus explains the level of the devastation I was feeling. I had let my mind go into the “How can this be happening, it’s always going to be this way, we’re never going to recover from this, the rest of my life I’m going to have to battle this,” blah, blah, blah. You know the drill – our minds can just totally run away with us, especially if we start negative thinking.
I woke up that next morning, and usually the first thing I do is turn on my cell phone. Since I go to bed so early, there is almost always that familiar whistle of something that has come in the night. That morning, there was one whistle, and I look at the message, and it’s from a man in our church, a man who I worship with but do not communicate with – wasn’t even sure how he had my number. That is where the God things began to flow. This man sends me a message that came in the night – the night I am devastated beyond words with the impossibility of my situation – and his message says, “I was praying for you in the night and God gave me a vision for you. He was directing an orchestra, and he says to tell Teresa it’s going to be all right.”
Wow. Wow. Wow. I began to really bawl then – because see, the GOD OF THE UNIVERSE had just spoken to me! Yes, it was as big as him taking Moses up on the mountain and giving him the words to write on the tablet – see, he took His finger and He wrote me a message that He knew I could see and read! Yes, he used a man, and he used TEXT MESSAGING – LOL – but He spoke all the same, just like he has over all these thousands of years – in an audible voice sent to calm His people. Oh, I praise His name!
The INSTANT I read that message, sent by this possible prophet I am privileged to go to church with, the angst left me – I mean LEFT ME! I just knew it was going to work out. And IT DID! The impossible situation became the enjoyable situation; the devastation turned into acceptance and love. Oh, only God, OUR GOD, can do jobs this big, can turn wreckage into perfection! I will NEVER NEVER forget the day my God text messaged me! Next time God puts someone on your heart or gives you a word of encouragement, DON’T DELAY – get it to that person immediately – you have no idea what you may be saving them from! Thank you, Lord, for that present day walk and another miracle!
