Testimony: God is good!
I don't think it's a secret that I've been trying to move closer to the Pittsburgh area. I am a Steeler fan and would like to remain one. I went to an apartment complex and they refused me. It wasn't my credit. I said, "Okay." I sent in the info that they asked for. It wasn't my referrals. I said, "Okay." I began to feel a little down about it but the "Jesus-in-me kept telling me to hold on. I couldn't figure out why I just didn't "size up" to them.
Early this morning when I got up around 4:30 a.m., I saw on the news where the apartment complex that I was trying to get into ....... is closing down for a Sheriff's Sale. They are far behind in taxes! I was like, "Jesus!!!!!"
Moral: Sometimes when you get upset, maybe even at God about something that you've asked for and it seems that you either aren't getting it or it may take some time....raise your hands and praise Him for His decision-making in your life. It just may not be the best that you are asking for. And for His Children, He gives the best.
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? f ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
