Day 13-Slow Down


A young  man  came  forward  to  share  how  the  Lord  saved his   life  last  Sunday. He  admitted  he  was  nervous  and  our  Pastor  encouraged  him  to  tell  his  story to  the family  of  God.
He  had  been  to  church  for  the  very  first  time  the previous  week and  had  heard  about  the  works  of  the living  God.
A few  days  later he  was driving  his  boss on  a  busy  highway. In  India  , highways  are  full  of traffic very  unlike  the  West,  where  you  don 't pass a  soul for  miles  I  am told.In  a  densely  populated  country  like  ours ,  there  is  heavy   traffic  on  the  roads .

As  this  man  was  speeding  down the  road  a  voice  inside  him  told  him  to  slow  down. Noticing  that  the  vehicle  was  slowing  down,  his  boss asked  him  why   he  was  doing it obviously irritated. Perhaps  they  had  to  reach  their  destination  quickly in  time for  an  appointment. But  the  driver  said  he had  to.
Suddenly  there  was  a  loud  explosion  and  one  of  the  front  wheels  of  the  car  burst without  warning. Because  they  had  slowed  down the  driver  was  able  to  control  the  car  and  bring  it  to  a safe  halt. One can  only  imagine  what  would  have   happened  had they  been  driving   at  the  speed  they  were  going earlier. They  would  have  not  survived and  perhaps crashed into passing  vehicles.
The  young  gave  thanks  to Jesus for saving  him  from   harm  ,  even  death.

Thine  ear  shall  hear  a word  behind  thee  saying,This  is  the  way  walk  ye  in it, when ye turn to  the  right hand, and when ye  turn  to  the   left. 
Isaiah  30;21 KJV (BIBLE)

How good is our God, and how good the young man shared his miracle story with your congregation.

God's voice is clear to the newly born again, but we can all keep that voice in our spirit if we spend time in worship and prayer. I am so blessed with what God is doing in you and in your fellowship.

It's been a while since I visited your blog, Amrita, but as usual it is a blessing to me! It is not often that we get to see such a clear result from our obedience to that small voice as this young man saw. Such a faith builder! It seems that recently the way for us and so many I know has been obscured. I need that little voice to tell me which way to go. Thanks for pointing out that verse. I haven't thought of it for a long time.
