The Almighty?…

Posted on

 

Image result for phone id which says Almighty

 

 

One Saturday night, a pastor was working late and decided to call his wife before he left for home. It was about 10:00 PM, but his wife didn’t answer the phone. The pastor let it ring many times. He thought it was odd that she didn’t answer but decided to wrap up a few things and try again in a few minutes. When he tried again, she answered right away. He asked her why she hadn’t answered before, and she said that it hadn’t rung at their house. They brushed it off as a fluke and went on their merry ways.

The following Monday, the pastor received a call at the church office, which was the phone that he’d used that Saturday night. The man that he spoke with wanted to know why he’d called on Saturday night. The pastor couldn’t figure out what the man was talking about.

Then the man said, “It rang and rang, but I didn’t answer.”

The pastor remembered the mishap and apologized for disturbing him, explaining that he’d intended to call his wife.

The man said, “That’s okay. Let me tell you my story. You see, I was planning to commit suicide on Saturday night, but before I did, I prayed, ‘God if you’re there, and you don’t want me to do this, give me a sign now.’ At that point, my phone started to ring. I looked at the caller ID, and it said, ‘Almighty God’. I was afraid to answer!”

The church that the pastor attends is called Almighty God Tabernacle.

    That’s a great story! It would be impossible to continue to consider suicide after seeing “Almighty God’ on the line….trying to get through.

      Suicide always bothers me so much. People who believe it will end their troubles don’t know what terrors await them on “the other side” when they face God! It is NOT an answer to anything…

      Thank you so much Mary for reading and commenting. Enjoy your evening and sorry for such a late reply!

      I know how you feel. Imagine how that man must have felt when he saw the phone ID! And it may be that God had nothing to do with it at all…but we certainly like to imagine He did. Thanks again for the comment, Robbie!!

      Such words of faith and wisdom! I have been guilty of looking around His world with no thought about His hand in it all. But now, it seems to be the first thing I think of…And yes, I thank Him too for His rich mercies!

      We’re for sure a work in progress and cling to Him as the Author and Finisher. We’ll get there together. Keep bringing us the word, we’re reading and getting nourished from it.

      We just can’t “wrap our heads” around the mysterious ways in which God works. He is just too grand for the human mind to understand fully. Thanks for the comments again, Liz!
