My Mechanic

my car breaks down, i call the mechanic, he comes rushing down, knowing only too well that he will make an extra coin from me.

my radio breaks down and i carry it with me to the technician, he promises me that the problem is minor...will be done just within the day.

my telephone line is disconnected by a falling tree and the telkom guys tell me that they are too busy working on another line.....but we will connect you soon

two days later......

my car is still at the garage and the mechanic doesn't look like he appreciates my lack of mobility
my radio is all parts everywhere at the technicians place but he hasn't known what problem is on it.
there is still a dead silence on my landline......
think with me.....
mechanic, technician, doctor, etc....dont we play these roles sometimes to God? dont we keep on promising what we cant deliver.?

my God is no mechanic, no technician, no doctor, no lawyer...oops....he is God. And yes, he is not a banker too...he is just God. no lie is to be found in him, no false promises, no guile, no cut lines....

while we are yet speaking, he answers to our needs. thats faster than any communication in the world.

rom 8:30...

So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?
32 If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?
33 And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen?

I am overwhelmed, awe struck, continually amazed.

One moment I think I have him figured out and the next, He suprises me.

Giving more than I could ever hope for, assuring me that indeed He does keep His word when I am full of doubt. What a fool I was when I thought that He had turned His back on me, that He cared no more.

I stand as an undone worshiper

A sinner saved by grace

'oops....he is God. And yes, he is not a banker too...he is just God. no lie is to be found in him, no false promises, no guile, no cut lines....', many atimes we try to analyze Him, at times we pray, fast, worship. tithe, but that does not make Him Godder, because he is God.

'I AM WHO I AM' your everthing, healer, provider etc. Make Him what you want HIM to be.

a friend of mine once asked me, hi, you don't answer my calls, you won't reply to my sms, what do i make of this?

then i remembered God could be letting me know how he has been knocking at my hearts door. each time he calls i am not available....that is until i fall in trouble
