God Strategies Never Fail

On Memorial Day, I had a chance to observe and bond with my two year old Great Great Niece.  She observes you before befriending you.  Now this was our second time in the same space:

first time she just looked at me,  and this time she walked, talked and played with me.

I set out to give her a diffent scenery than just sitting in a room watching Mom (her best friend) in a hospital bed able to talk, but unable to hold or walk with her. So, we joined hands and set out for an adventure, we discovered four halls branched off from the nurses station.  Our walk proceeded as follows:

– I’d point down a hallway, we walked it in silence all the way down and back up.

– I’d point down the next hallway, again we walked it in silence all the way down and back up.

– She pointed down the next hallway, and this time waved when people admired her as we walked.

– She pointed down the final hallway, and this 

time she waved and said ‘hi’ as we walked and people admired her.

Upon returning to the room we practiced numbers, colors, letters and played peekabo. When we took a picture she yelled ‘cheese’ and after prayer she yelled, AMEN!

Matthew 18:24, Jesus sets a child as an example of humility. Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven

Reflecting on this day with my Great Great Niece I shared with an Elder, how I saw this as our walk of faith for her Mother to be fully restored.

In the article written by Rev. Timothy Benefield entitled ‘What is in thine hand.’  He reminds us ofExodus 4:1-2, And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The Lord hath not appeared unto thee. And the Lord said unto 

him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. Read Exodus 4 to learn how God used the rod to increase Moses faith.  

This author also writes how God, is able to use any ordinary thing that is yielded to him in faith. The process is not complicated, but we must:

• Examine our hands, whatever you have is enough for God to do something miraculous.

• Empty your hand, God wants to know if his children trust him enough to let him have it.

• Enjoy God’s hand, miracles were not accomplished by the rod but by the power of God. The rod was simply a symbol of the submission and faith of Moses.

When I returned to visit my Great Niece in the hospital the next week,  she was seated in a wheel chair.  Before prayer, she excitedly shared how she had been approved to be transferred to ‘Baylor, Scott and White Hospital for Physical Therapy.’  During prayer we thanked God for her being a ‘Miracle In Progress’ (MIP) and also thanked him in advance for a safe transfer to start physical therapy. 

Hearing this Great Niece talk about her transfer, reminded me of one lasts thing my Great Great Niece did the day we ‘faith walked’ the hospital halls. She walked me to the elevator and waved and said bye.  All these actions of faith set things in motion for her Mother (and best friend) waved and said bye to that hospital staff and floor the very next week.
