I believe it was Wednesday and Thursday night of last week that I text messaged my mother. The first night I didn’t get a response from her, the second night was unresponsive as well. My mother is older and she has battled many different health issues recently. So I gave it another day and nothing from her. That’s when I decided to call her and she answered the phone. I said, “Mother are doing alright?” She said yes why what’s wrong?
I just started to chuckle on the inside a bit. I was like thank you Lord. I said I messaged you a couple of times last week and you didn’t respond to either. She said I know, there’s something wrong with this crazy phone. The only thing I could make out was the word “RANSOM”, I said ransom, I didn’t text that to you. She said well that’s what it says. I said there has to be some kind of mix up, she said I’ll show you the next time you come down to see me and maybe you can do something with this phone.
Anyway, this is why I wanted to share this with you this morning. When I got up I said Lord show me what you want me to see today. So I opened my Bible up to Matthew 20:28 which says; Even the Son of man came not to be served but to serve others and to give life as a RANSOM for many.
As I was reading that I was astonished, I didn’t know what to think. I was thinking mom, and I was thinking God how do you do it:) However, I know I can’t understand the depths of his providence and I’m good with that. I think that’s what makes it so amazing to us all, the mystery connection between the human and the Holy Spirit. Truly Awesome! You are in my prayers, and please pray for me. God bless you all.
