[This is part of the You Are Here for a Reason series.]
When I was 3, I was outside riding my tricycle in the driveway. The driveway became less interesting than a longer route, so I rode on the walk from the driveway to the front door. When I got to the end, instead of turning around to come back the way I came, I envisioned a square route that I could make. Although from the front door to the street was grass, my plan was to ride from there, turn right onto the road in front of our house, and right again onto the driveway making a square. Yeah, that sounded like fun. (I guess preschoolers think in terms of shapes.)
There was one danger I was blind to — the car parked on the road in front of the house. I would have to go further into the street to get around it.
My mom was doing dishes, and was down to the last little bit when she heard my dad’s voice urgently calling her for the second time to go check on the kids. Instead of finishing the last few minutes of work in the kitchen, she went to check on the kids. At the same time, my Dad was going out the front door to check on the kids. They opened the front door, saw me, and she screamed. She saw the oncoming car speeding down the street, and I didn’t. I was about to pedal past the parked car into it’s path when I stopped at the sound of her scream. The next second I felt an enormous wind that knocked me off my tricycle. If she hadn’t screamed at that precise moment, I wouldn’t have stopped!
The story of my near-brush with death doesn’t end there. After telling me to stay out of the street, they went back inside, and were discussing their relief.
“I’m sure glad you yelled at me to check on the kids!” Mom said emphatically.
He was amazed. “I never yelled at you to check on them. I heard you calling me to check on them! The first time, I just looked out the window and prayed over them. But the second time I came running!”
It was supernatural the way God saved my life!
Moral of the Story
God is not tardy. He knows the details of your life and will even move supernaturally on your behalf. If you are reading this, then God wants you here on the earth right now. Don’t give up! Keep moving forward. (Unless you’re on a tricycle, and your mom screams at you to stop.) Whether you know why or not, you are here for a reason.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
How has God moved supernaturally in your life?
