I WILL CRY OUT TO GOD MOST HIGH, TO GOD WHO
PERFORMS ALL THINGS FOR ME. HE SHALL SEND FROM
HEAVEN AND SAVE ME.
( PSALM 57:2-3 *NKJV )
A member of our God's Minute family sent me the following
story. I hope that it will Minister to you as it has Ministered to
me. Now, the short story.
The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small,
uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him,
and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed
Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of
driftwood to protect himself from the elements, and to store his
few possessions. However one day, after scavenging for food,
he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke
rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened -everything was
lost. He was stunned with grief and anger. "God, how could you
do this to me?" he cried.
Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound
of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue
him. "How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his
rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied.
It's easy to get discouraged sometimes when things appear to
be going badly. But we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at
work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering.
Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground, it
just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God!
For all the negative things we have to say to ourselves, God has
a positive answer for it. Amen.
In His Love & Service,
