If you did not read the previous post on this, please go back and read it first. This post is the ending to a miraculous story for a lady that had what it takes to stand while God worked out her miracle. This story allows us to see, experience, and relive similar situations that we all have experienced. It allows us to look back and ask the question, did I stand God working out my miracle: well did you?
We pick back up with the lady having secured a one way flight to a city 40 miles away from the location of the funeral. As you have read in the previous post, this much is a miracle within itself, but there is still a lot left for the Godhead to work out. It is important to note the significance of the lady being able to arrive in a city where her best friend just happened to be on the day the last flight to get her to the funeral on time was landing. As stated above, the closest airport to where the funeral is located is about 40 miles away. The lady would have to rent a car (she has little money), and drive pretty fast to have a chance of making it to the funeral on time, and then she would have to return the car to the airport to where she has no return flight. Father realizes that this is too much for an elderly person to attempt to do with very little time to work with. So by having the lady’s best friend already in the city, Father could use another substance to make sure the lady would be picked up at the airport with enough time to make it to the funeral. Whew again: can you stand God working out your miracle? Can you imagine just going with God only knowing that he will connect all the bridges right as you need to cross them? God can’t get some of His people to go across town without having everything already worked out. Can you imagine God trying to send people like that with Moses to the promise land? No wonder Moses got distracted and miss-spoke. Those type people can drive you crazy wanting to know answers all the time to questions that you aren’t even allowed to ask yourself. Here’s another good true side bar for you. I had a minster friend out of KaKamega, Kenya in East Africa by the name of Rev. Douglas Jiveti. He is truly a man of faith. God told him to come to America. I’m keeping a long story very short. He had only raised enough money for the flight over, but he came on anyway without money for a return flight: need I say more? Anyway, the Pastor at that time, but now the Presiding Prelate of this mega church in LA heard his story, and he treated Rev. Jiveti as a guest. This church supplied his needs, and purchased him a ticket to Ohio since that was his destination provided to him from God. When it was time for Rev. Jiveti to leave Ohio and go back home, he did not go back short-handed. Now that is standing God to work out his miracle big time!!! Most times with Father, if you first have to know, you more than likely will not go.
Now off the side bar, and back to the conclusion of the lady that could stand God working out her miracle. Ok, so the lady is now on her way to the city where the funeral will be, and up to this point she has only spent $10.00 at the airport that she gave to the person who assisted her with the wheelchair. How often do you get to travel 900 miles one way, and your only expense has been a $10.00 tip? This brings some other things into play that we should touch on while the lady is making her way down the interstate these last 40 miles to the funeral. First of all, she will need a place to stay the three days, and two nights that she is there paying her respects to all connected to the death of her niece. In the past she would stay at the home of her best friend, but this time another niece of hers kind of played the “it doesn’t look like my aunt can make it to the funeral card.” Then she boldly asked the lady’s best friend if she could have the room for herself. So here is what actually happened after this went down: you can decide for yourself if it was part of God being ahead of the game, or if it was part of God being ahead of the game. Oh, I gave you the same choice didn’t I? By now if you have any doubt as to whether or not God is in complete control of this operation, just hang in there for the conclusion of this true story. You see, before the lady even knew for sure that she would actually be leaving to attend the funeral, Father was already making headway concerning her accommodations. And keep in mind, although you may believe and have the faith that God will make it happen, skillfully, you must always operate as though everything is an imagination until you have it in your hands. This allows you to stay prepared for sudden changes that God may insert to bridge you to the next phase. We are allowed in spiritual strategy to believe as though we have that which has not yet manifested, but skillfully we are not allowed to actually confirm that we have it until we have it. This allows God to put a shake and bake with a mean crossover on your defender, and get you to the basket for the score. If you confirm an imagination before it is made to exist whether it be of faith, fear, false or true, you lock yourself down, and you end up being the one getting up off the floor from the shake and bake with the mean crossover that was intended for your defender. Father stressed to me years ago that you never really know what’s next until it is next: you believe you know how it will end up, but you don’t know every nook and cranny coming your way. So stay ready to flow by not being locked down to an imagination no matter how much you believe it will soon be a reality.
So a friend of the family that lived in the city where the funeral will be held had called the lady earlier to see if she would be able to make the funeral right. The lady had told her that she was still in the process of making arrangements to get there. Then this person just said it right out the clear blue sky; she said to the lady, don’t forget that you owe me a stay over. She said the last time you were in town for the reunion, I invited you to stay at my house, and you said that you would take me up on it the next time you were in town. She said, well, this will be the next time that you are in town, and you are invited again to stay at my house. Of course, this time the lady accepted the invitation, and now she had accommodations for the duration of her stay: can you stand for God to work out your miracle! This friend of the family also said that she would take care of all the meals, and provide the lady transportation whenever she needed to go somewhere while in the city. Oh my, You couldn’t have scripted this story any better because it all actually happened chronologically, and expressed as remembered near verbatim. So the lady with her best friend complete the 40 miles from the airport to arrive in the city about forty minutes before the funeral was to begin. Everything goes smoothly over the next forty minutes, and the lady is able to attend the funeral services for her niece.
Well the lady is still not done yet, but she does get a break in the action while in the city attending the funeral, if you can call attending a funeral a break. Can you see what it takes out of you to be able to stand God working out your miracle in complex faith operations? Now if you remember, this all became a challenge because the lady asked a hard thing. She wanted to attend her grandson’s eight grade graduation, and also make her niece’s funeral which was quite a distance away from her with limited time to get there. The challenge was that most of the round trip fights departed before the graduation, and she had made her stand that God could make a way for her to do both. Now we know how God made it happen, and we also know the reason that He could make it happen is because the lady had what it takes to stand God working out her miracle. Now for the fireworks, after all that has taken place, the bridge to get back home after the funeral had not yet been connected. Now to remain truthful to you, the lady had it in the back of her mind what that bridge might be if she could just get to the funeral. Once she found out that she was actually coming, she had called her youngest son who was already on the road at that time on his way to the funeral coming in from a different direction. She told him that she had a way to the funeral, and that she wanted to know if she could ride back home with him, and catch a bus back home from his house? The son of course said yes to her, but you know with Father, you never really know what’s next until it’s next.
So the funeral is over, and the lady and her son leaves the city heading to his home. They stop for a meal along the way, and the son gets on his smart phone for a few minutes, and he gets off with a whole new plan. Once again, it’s ok in faith strategy to believe the end result will happen, but remember you never confirm an end result because you never know what’s next until it’s next: you don’t know every nook and cranny coming your way. It was a smart move on the son’s part to get on the smart phone because taking the lady (his mom) home with him would be a bit out the way for her. Plus, the lady is still a part of Father’s operation to work out her round trip back home. She knows by now to just go with the flow: if you first have to know, you more than likely will not go. They had made it far enough on the trip back to a city that had the Megabus bus running with connections to a city about 90 miles away from her home. I kid you not. Lol. This connection would have her arriving at her own home about the same time that she and her son would have been arriving at his home. Then from his home she would still have had to make the trip to her home. This was a good nook and cranny to come her way. Plus, I know you already know this, the son purchased the ticket for the Megabus bus, and he also purchased a ticket for her to take the Amtrak Train the last 90 miles home. So as the son stands there to see his mom off on the bus, we can all breathe a sigh of relief because all seems well, right?
The lady arrives on the bus to the city with just 90 miles left to reach home. Unlike when she arrived at the airport earlier for the funeral where everything went smoothly, trying to get the luggage off the bus to get to the Amtrak train a couple of blocks away for the connection did not go as smoothly. She had a nook and cranny come her way that was not so good, but she always kept in mind who was really in control of this operation. And she knew that Father did not bring her this far not to complete what He started: she just have to be able to stand God working out her miracle to and through the end. The service rep at Amtrak let her know that there was a Greyhound bus station around the block with a bus departing for her destination in about thirty minutes. She was able to get a cab, and the driver was nice enough to carry her luggage quickly to the bus counter just in time. My, you just really never know what’s next, until it shows up. The fare to get home was the first money that she had to spend on any transportation cost during the entire trip. She had the money needed to cover the cost, and was able to complete the round trip home successfully: the end thank you Father! Many people miss out on their miracle simply because of the lack of skill to bring to pass the more complex faith operations, and also because they can’t stand all the nook and crannies that will come their way during the faith operation. It is Fathertime – Can You Stand God Working out your miracle?
