Do you ever ask the Lord for a sign? If I have already told this story I apologize but I wanted to share this with you after a discussion with my preacher this morning.
My preacher is trying to get our congregation to grow but there is so much resistance. He told me he is asking for signs from the Lord as to why he is here since the church refuses to grow closer to the Lord.
When he told me that it reminded me about asking the Lord for a sign about 3 years ago. A really nice guy works for my brother's roofing company and at the time he believed in God but was not a christian because he did not believe in Jesus as the son of God.
I asked him if God gave him a sign then would he believe? He said yes so I asked him if we could pray together for God to use a sign for him to believe. I took it a step further during that prayer and asked that he get struck by lightning(but not injured) as I was sure this type of sign would surely prove once and for all that Jesus is the son of the Most High God.
Three weeks later this guy called me and told me he went to the door of his home during a storm one night and stepped just outside about the time a lightning bolt struck very very close by and he felt the tingling in his skin from the strike. He told me he did not need any more signs after that. He is a faithful member of a Baptist church here in my area now.
So how about you? Want to share some God stories about signs here in this post? I really expect this post to take off with lots of comments!
