Yesterday, I opened the blog by talking about the prayer journeys highs and lows. In this entry I showcase a “high” although I didn’t feel that way when the concept originally needled its way within my brain. I began asking myself, “How much do you trust God? As the days passed, I just started demanding myself to trust God more! I began diligently telling myself to behave as if God will answer my prayer. “Don’t ask God for something and then behave in a way that shows you never expected the situation to be resolved as you wished.”
Hmmm… let me try telling you a story.
I had prayed for God to allow me to take a college course this Fall. I feared the class would be closed because school was scheduled to start in two days.[ God resolves level — After a few rounds of inquiry, I found out that The class still had available slots although it was scheduled to begin in two days.]
I had not taken a course at this school in over a year. I forget what my email and password were and I could not find where I had written it down. [Second level resolved — A very helpful and patient Information Technology person fixed my email and password problems.]
The earliest I could get to campus to register would have ~ 6:30 PM. I was not confident that I could complete registration as I thought it was over by 7PM. [Third level resolved — The same helpful lady informed me that registration would be open until 8PM that night. Now I had time to register.]
I could not be anymore set!
I go to walk out the door and it was drenching rain! I mean raining like God maybe thought He would think about bring The Flood back around. My heart sank; I was so close. I started to forget the entire situation. Just then it came to me , “Didn’t you ask God to work this out for you? So why don’t you pray all the way there and just trust that He will not allow you to get drenched.”
And that ‘s what I did! I prayed to the subway steps. — I didn’t get drenched! 🙂
I prayed coming up out of the subway. I got to the surface to find the rain had stopped!
By the day’s end, I was registered.
I told this rather long story as a testimony to you and, still, to myself.
If you ask God to do a thing, then follow all the way through with it assuming He will remove the obstacles along the way. Don’t you get distracted! Don’t you be the one to have stopped the progress!
Living as if God is going to come through for you — well, that’s definitely a high!
