Listening To God

Mark 4:24 (NIV)
 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more.

A Spirit filled pastor called Pastor Herman Trenholm from Charlottetown, P.E.I. had an unusual experience. He was at the radio station on a Wednesday, prerecording his Bible message for the week. But, for some reason, the words could not come out of his mouth. He had never experienced anything like it. He tried, but he could only stammer out his message.

At the same time, in the same town, a pastor from a large denomination was fighting his doubts about God's existence. Finally, in despair, he opened his phonebook under the heading of churches and drew his finger hazardly down the list, stopping on a particular church. It so happened that this was Pastor Trenholm's church. The other pastor cried out loud: "God, if you do exist, send this pastor to my door within 30 minutes!" (I do not recommend this method, by the way!)

Meanwhile, Pastor Trenholm felt an urgent need to leave the radio station and drive the streets of Charlottetown. Guess where he ended up? You got it. Right at the church of the doubting pastor. Exactly 29 minutes after the pastor had uttered his prayer, Pastor Trenholm knocked on his door. When he opened the door, Pastor Trenholm said, "I have no idea why I'm here, but God told me to come here. Is there anything I can do for you?"

The doubting pastor started to cry, and Pastor Trenholm was able to witness to him. He became born again was baptized by God's Spirit that same day!

Dear Lord, we pray that our ears would be open to You. Help us hear You when You tell us to do something. IN Jesus’ Name, Amen.
