From my home office, I could hear the racket. Loud, clunking arrhythmic noises were coming from something big and mechanical. At first, I thought the washing machine was out of balance and trying to walk out of the basement again but I quickly discovered my central air conditioning unit was the source of the noise.
This is all kinds of bad news! It was 90 degrees outside and there was a lot more summer on the calendar. I shut it down and called the repair man to look at it. His assessment? “Call the sale office. You need a new unit,” he told me. “There’s no way to fix this one?” I ask hopefully. “This unit is 22 years old. It’s served you well. Let it die in peace.” “I see. Well, can you estimate what it would cost to replace?” Without a moment of hesitation, he said, “I’d guess close to $3000.00.”
Do you have a big prayer concern?
Have you prayed and prayed and there has been
no answer or healing or breakthrough.
Don’t you wish God would just
write the answer on your wall?
Be careful what you wish for!
I dare say that if God’s hand appeared,
we’d still question and fuss
if not fall over in fear!
It is true.
We’d love to know what to do to stay in God’s will and experience his best for us.
So many of our questions are not specifically addressed in the Bible.
Is it God’s best for you to be married or single?
Is it God’s best for you to stay at your job or start your own biz?
Is it God’s best for your child to go to private or public school?
Is it God’s best for you serve in this ministry or that one?
Aside from writing on the wall, how do you know when and how God answers your prayers?
