Sometimes it feels almost hard to trust that God will never fail you at some point. I definitely went through a time or two like that. About a year ago, I felt like everything I put my hand to was not prospering like God’s Word says it will, but instead, it felt more as if everything I put my hand to failed.
After I had felt let down a few times more than I thought was right or fair, I had a heart to heart with God. Okay, more like me whining to God with my complaints and hurts. God never let me go, though. Through all my anger, God held my hand and wiped away all my tears. He just loved me.
‘”Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.”‘ -Malachi 3:10
Well, that verse was enough for me. I was going to put God to the test and He was going to have to prove to me that I had not wasted two years in Bible College and years of believing in Him. He was either going to show Himself strong and faithful, or a total liar.
God showed Himself strong! I had been looking for a full time job with absolutely no luck. I had applied at several places and hadn’t gotten so much as an interview. One day I was at the ministry my mom works at helping her decorate for a luncheon they were putting on. There I was kneeling on the ground picking up shredded pieces of paper when a woman who worked at the Bible College I had just graduated from (and is located in the same building as the ministry) came over, looked at me and said, “I think you’re the person I need to speak to.” To my amazement she was coming over to ask my mom for my phone number to ask me if I would be interested in a position at the Bible College! Right then and there she took me to her office and I had an interview!
About three weeks and two more interviews later, she called to tell me that I was hired! She told me that as she was going through applications my name kept going through her head, so she knew she needed to talk to me about the job. Here’s the amazing part… I had not EVER put in an application! The Lord laid my name on her heart so strongly that she came to find me. I have worked for the Bible College now a year in November 2013.
You may be thinking, “Well, God may have done that for YOU, but He hasn’t and probably won’t do something like that for me.”
That’s just not true though. God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). In other words, God shows no favoritism. You can see something that amazing or something even better, happen to you, too.
