He Heard God’s Voice, Too!

My friend Norma just called and said, “I didn’t see today’s blog!”  I explained, “I didn’t write it yet!”  I explained that bloggers can write 2-3 times a week, or even once a week if their last blog was a very long one!  I really don’t know much about this business.  In fact, I didn’t even know a blog from a website until I browsed through Blogging for Dummies!  It said that a blog is a website, but not all websites are blogs.  Go figure!  So Norma, this one is dedicated to you:

He Heard God’s Voice, Too!

Yesterday was such a busy day!  It started with Wyman’s Adult Bible Class at the Chinese church we attend.  Then we went to the Filipino church where he preaches every other Sunday.  After that there was the once a month  fellowship for all the affiliate Filipino churches and we were on the program to sing and share a few words.  It was a wonderful time of worship and praise, great guest speaker’s sermon on ‘Working Together’, special music, etc.  But what I want to share is the testimony a pastor gave which happens to be what I just blogged about- hearing God’s voice.

The pastor had gone to a Filipino community meeting which supports Filipinos back in their homeland in the Philippines.  The time came for contributions for their cause and he was not planning to give a donation.  He had only twenty dollars in his wallet which he needed to buy gas to drive home.  Then he heard the Lord say to him, “Give your money!”  The voice was loud and clear!  It shook him up, so he gave it up and donated his twenty dollars.  Then the announcer said that there was a prize to be given to someone who remembers what the speakers’ middle name was.  The pastor shouted out the name, and won the prize!  In the envelope was enough cash money to buy gas and more besides!  Boy, was he glad he obeyed God!  He gave, and God gave back to him and provided him gas money and extra, too!  When I heard this story, I got goose bumps.  It confirmed to me that without a doubt, there are times when God speaks to us loud and clear to get our attention!
