On Friday, I posted about listening to the “quiet voice” when It insisted that I go downstairs instead of finishing my morning routine. Oh how I was rewarded for my obedience!
Today, I heard a story on the radio that went way beyond my experience of last Friday.
A man had used his cell phone at lunch and upon ending his call went to put the phone in his pants pocket as he always did. However, he felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to put his phone in his shirt pocket instead. While not understanding, he nevertheless obeyed.
Later that day, he was out mowing the grass when he was hit by a stray bullet from a hunter. Not knowing whether or not he had been injured, he took his cell phone out to call 911. His phone disintegrated in his hands. It had been hit by the bullet. His shirt pocket was located directly over his heart. The man was unharmed, but doctors said had it not been for the cell phone, he would have most certainly been dead.
I was covered in chills when I heard the story.
Oh Father God, please give me spiritual ears to hear when you speak and the faith to obey no matter what I may think about Your instruction. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
