This happened sometime ago in 2015, it was my day off from work.
I searched for my ear buds that morning worried that I might have lost them, I finally found them in the front pocket of my long-sleeved shirt, I then realized it had been washed along with the shirt the previous day, so I frantically tested them on my phone and to my dismay as I had feared…. one of the ear buds wasn’t working, I love listening to good quality gospel music through good quality ear buds, where would I get another pair as good as this.
I asked Jesus to please help me fix them, so I continued fidgeting with the ear buds to no avail, it is at this point I gave up. Then I heard a voice say to me “Hit the earphone on the table”, huh? I obeyed immediately, one hit on the table and I tested them again, lo and behold! The sweet sound of music hitting my eardrums from both ear buds, though not yet balanced, the voice said ” Hit it again ” after which the sound was now even and perfect! It was exciting, I was grateful to God and gave thanks! Wow!
Revelations and lessons from this experience
When I was instructed to hit the ear bud on the table, the story of Moses hitting the rock for water ran through my mind;
And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.
Secondly God taught me somethings;
- He cares about even the smallest things about us, as long as it matters to you, it will matter to Him, He loves us unconditionally. Think about a father watching his son/daughter play, wont he smile at that scene?
- When we ask God for something, He will answer but only if we let go and let Him do it His way (I fidgeted after asking Jesus to help me and when I gave up, He stepped in.)
- Don’t think your problem is too small or inconsistent for God to solve.
Psalms 46:1 (ESV)
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Isaiah 55:9 (KJV)
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
