It was in 1993 that I traveled to the Morris Cerullo 23rd World Conference in San Diego where over 7000 Christians from all over the world gathered to worship God and to hear how He was working throughout the world. What an awesome God-filled time it was. I floated in His presence for seven days. I was anxious to get home and share that week with everyone. However, I missed my flight. UGH!
As I walked up and down the crowded concourse waiting for my next flight, I bumped into two lady friends of my sister. They were wandering around on the concourse like they were lost. I could tell that they had been crying. After talking with them and learning of their plight, I learned that someone had stolen one of their purses. It had contained her ID, money, and ticket for home. The other friend wasn’t going to leave her friend stranded. She said that she would pay me back, to which I replied, “Not on your life.”
Our meeting was a divine intervention and God allowed me to partake of His blessing of helping a sister in the Lord. How could I ask for remuneration? My payback was God’s blessing to me and to that sister in the Lord.
Have you ever made plans to do something and because of some unforeseen force, those specific plans fell through? You then did something else either through necessity or to fill the void and you ended up meeting God at His appointed time for you, whereby He blessed your socks off. You’ve just experienced a God thing. Maybe out of a clear blue sky something happens for you or to you that all but has you in tears, praising God. You’ve just experienced a God thing.
So whatever circumstance you are going through or whatever state you might find yourself in, stick around and rejoice because your God thing is close at hand.
v11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
v12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
v13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. — Philippians 4:11-13
When I close my eyes and seek His face, these verses still bring tears to my eyes. Oh how my God loves me, and how I love Him.
I could share many more, but my experience in San Diego was a definite God thing. By chance (and I use that word loosely – LOL), I’d missed my flight, wandered around in a crowded concourse dodging people, and bumped into two sisters who needed help. It was an awesome chain of events that guided us together. Thank you Jesus.
Thank you Lord for all the little and big “God Things” that you make happen for us. The closer we get to you God and seek your face, the more God things you bless us with on a daily basis. Thank you Lord. You are my standard and I give you not only my praise and worship but I give you my life as well. Have your way with me Lord and I’ll do my best to serve and follow you. In your precious name, amen.
NOTE: Anyone out there have a God thing they’d like to share and bless the body?
