Last week I talked about how as a new believer I was encouraged and amazed at how the Lord responded to a simple request. The story continues
Soon after this incident, I made another request known to the Lord. We were urgently seeking a pharmacist for one of our pharmacies. During my quiet time one morning, I asked the Lord to please send me a pharmacist. I added that it was an emergency and that I needed to find a manager before twelve noon!
As a new believer, I was encouraged by my pastor to “delve into the Word”. I took this to heart and rose at five every morning to pray and read the Bible. I met a friend at one of the Saturday prayer meetings and we started comparing notes on what we felt the Lord was telling us in our quiet time. It was amazing how often the messages were similar, even though we read from different parts of the Bible. This greatly encouraged us, as the Bible became more meaningful. I marveled at the way in which the Holy Spirit started revealing the Word to me.
