In His Time God Speaks

In His Time God SpeaksAfter a great visit with my parents, my daughter and I headed back home. My precious little one, gave her grandma and grandpa a day of excitement and unforgettable memories. She played and ran until the three of them became exhausted. Just as I was thinking about all the fun we had, I looked back to see how my daughter was doing, and found she was fast asleep. As I looked ahead, out of nowhere a car was headed right at me.

The next thing I knew, I was sitting still in the middle of the road, and the front end of my car was gone. I was sitting behind the steering wheel in the wide-open space. I looked around to see if my daughter was okay, and could see she was slumped over in her car seat. Much to my surprise, there was a woman standing in the doorway praying over my sweet daughter. I couldn’t understand what she was praying but I knew God has sent her. After what seemed like a very long time, the woman left my daughter, came around to where I was sitting and whispered in my ear, “God said to tell you that you and your daughter will be fine.” She left and I never saw her again.

God protected me that day, not one scratch. Even my clothes were left in perfect condition. I do have one leg that is injured on the inside and needs some reconstructive surgery. My daughter was also injured and had a broken neck. The doctors said she would never be able to move her body in any way, shape, or form for the rest of her life.

To the doctor’s amazement, my little girl, after only two weeks, is beginning to move her arms and hands. The doctors are ordering a wheelchair for her and feel that with physical therapy she can learn to operate it herself. I feel if she never walks again, that will be okay. She is alive and we will be just fine.

This remarkable story was told to me by a friend who personally was involved with the mother and daughter. It is amazing how in God’s time, He speaks, to us to bring a word of encouragement and hope. In this case, maybe even through an angel.

It is interesting that God would place within this mother’s mind and heart such absolute hope for the future for both she and her daughter. And yet the doctors would paint such a grim and hopeless future for the precious daughter. Who would you have believed? How would this have affected your faith? Isn’t it true, that so many times, we have to know all the answers and the end result, before we will believe or trust God. In Psalm 139:23-24 it says, “Search me, O God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Let us take time today to lay our fears and doubts before the Living God and put our trust in Him. If you have not trusted Christ today as your personal Savior, then take a moment and pray this prayer.

Psalm 146:5 says, “Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God,” and Psalm 147:3, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
