The Meeting

Background Psalm 105:36-45

For he remembered his holy promise given to his servant Abraham. (Psalm 105:42)


HE STARED AT THE MEMO I had just given him. It was from the manager, announcing a meeting, (arranged on the spur of the moment,) which would occur in less than a half an hour! My friend was to have a proposal ready for it.

He complained, “There is no way that I am going to be able to have everything ready for this meeting!” As he walked out of the door, notebook in hand, he said, “You had better pray!”

I just knew that God would answer! Knowing there were problems, but that God had often met my own needs when I acknowledged my weakness, I promised to pray for him.

And, pray I did! “God, I acknowledge all that is happening here that is not necessarily Your way of doing things, but would You show Who You really are, and be merciful! Please help him, dear Lord! Amen.”

Sometime later he came into the office and looked at me in disbelief, and said, “Are you psychic or something?” I responded, “No! Why?”

The most important person in the meeting had not turned up at all! He had completely forgotten about the meeting!

God loves to answer prayer because of Who He is! He keeps His promises, He wants us to rely on Him!

- Paul Wilson

God always remembers His promises, do you? Get caught up on at least one today!
