Today I was outside mowing the lawn when it started to rain. All the doors were locked and the garage door was closed. I never bring a key outside when I mow the lawn, as the garage door opener always works. However, this time the garage door key code didn’t work. I tried the same code over ten times and nothing happened. I didn’t know what to do. I was getting very scared that I’d be stuck out in the rain. My wife wasn’t going to be home for another couple of hours. Then, I thought for a minute about my situation. I may not be able to get out of this easily on my own but I knew one person that could do all things. I put my head down against the garage door and touched it. I then prayed to God to help me. I told Him that I trusted in Him in all things. I told Him how much I love Him. I asked that, with His power, that the garage door would open. I ended my prayer, telling the Lord how grateful I was to have Him in my life. After I opened my eyes I started typing the pin code with all my faith in God. I knew He could get me out of this situation. As I pressed the last key, the garage door opened. The Lord did a miracle before my eyes. He opened my eyes to His majesty. I could feel in my heart how desperately I needed Him. I cannot bear all things on my own but with Jesus I can do all things. I need You Lord. What I can’t do You can.
God truly answered my prayer. He rescued me when I felt afraid. He calmed my heart. I had no need to fear for He was with me. These past many months, I’ve grown so close to God. Each day has been a blessing to worship Him. When I turn on Christian music I feel so close to Him. When I pray, He is with me. I can hear His voice. I love His presence. Reading His word has opened my eyes to His beauty. The Lord has surely made an impression in my life. There is nothing worth more than my God. I ask that any of you that are in need, come to the Lord in prayer. Call upon His Name and He will listen. If you are weary He will give you rest. If you are lost He will guide your way. If you are in chains by sin He will free you from bondage. There is freedom in the Lord. There is a joy that can shine bright in our lives. Is there anything worth more than eternal happiness? Is there anything better than love that never ends? When we discover the Lord in our lives and truly believe in Him He will be more than just our God. He will send the Spirit to be our guide. He will watch over us and keep us safe. Jesus’s love is extended to all that follow Him. His mercy is for all that repent and forsake their sins. All those that love Him will one day obtain eternal life in heaven, where the Lord reigns supreme. How amazing will it be to live with the Lord forever.
1 John 5:14-15
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
