Down but Not Out

Trust the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. Proverb 3: 5 – 6


Pastor Ike witnesses a miracle every Sunday.  It happens when he stands in his pulpit to preach.  He spends almost every other minute of his life in a wheel chair.

You see Ike has broken his neck three times. Once in Vietnam, another in an automobile accident.  The third time occurred when an iron beam crushed him.  The doctors said he’d never walk again.

But during his recovery, he prayed,

Lord, I’m yours, for whatever I might still be good for.  But please let me stand in the pulpit if I am to preach.”

God granted that prayer.  And Pastor Ike praises God for getting his attention.

Dear friend, God wants your attention too!  Read your Bible.  Praise and thank Him for working in your life.  Expect your miracle!
