One time, David and I were at a conference and we went out walking along the beach. I had my phone because it’s hard for me to go anywhere without it.
I guess I got sweaty because, all of a sudden, it flew out of my hand. At that exact moment, a wave came up and washed my phone out to sea!
I was FREAKING OUT! “My phone! My phone!”
So, I ran out in the water and found it. I wiped it off, laid hands on it and prayed, right there!
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “That’s just SILLY! Do you really expect God to fix your cell phone?”
Well YES! I did expect God to fix my phone because YOU DON’T KNOW MY GOD!
- My God is a GOOD God!
- My God cares about EVERYTHING I care about.
- My God wants me to SLEEP at night.
- My God gives me PEACE, even when I think I should be upset about something.
So, I prayed. “God, I really NEED this phone! I’m out of town and I don’t have any of my phone numbers backed up. Father, in The Name of Jesus, THANK YOU for restoring my phone!”
That phone was BLESSED and, later, went through an entire cycle in the washing machine…and still worked! Someone had to, literally, run over that phone to make it stop.
God is into the details of your life! Stop selling Him short! Lift up the little things to Him and pray. Don’t credit “coincidence” and fail to give Him the GLORY He deserves.
God’s BIGGER than you think, BETTER than you think, and LOVES YOU MORE than you’ll ever know!
Has god ever exceeded your expectation and done something great for you?
