“Don’t you know that God, the true judge, will grant justice to all his chosen ones who cry out to him night and day? He will pour out his Spirit upon them. He will not delay to answer you and give you what you ask for. God will give swift justice to those who don’t give up. So be ever praying, ever expecting…“ (Luke 18:7-8)
This reminds me of the first awful depression I worked through back in 1993. The banks pulled the plug on the International Shipping & Logistics firm I worked for as a Director and I lost my job, my beautiful black Mercedes (with private number plate), my (stupidly excessive) monthly expense account - and my dignity.
We had three small children under 7 and I ended up doing any ‘odd jobs’ for family and friends, just to make ends meet. And then GOD called me to Bible College to study under the awesome John McKay.
How were we ever going to manage? The bank was (daily) on my back to repay all my loans and the pressure was terrible. Finally, the bank manager called me in. He was angry. I could sense he wanted to sell my wife and kids into slavery while I worked off the debt in some obscure debtors prison. While he was mid-rant, the Lord told me “give him your testimony and tell him you want to go to Bible college.”
I didn’t think this was a good idea and told GOD so, but He got His way. When I’d finished telling the bank manager all, he simply stared at me dumbfounded. Finally he said, “So I suppose I’ll never see this debt repaid?” “Sorry sir,” I said, “but I can’t see how.” After a long while, the Bank manager stood up and said, “I can see you’re genuine about wanting to be a better person, so go and make this happen and I’ll write off the debt.”
That day I learned (the hard way), to let go and let GOD … ❤️
