My last post talked about the peace that comes through prayer. I told about 2 friends who were praying about my Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day! Well, today I discovered that God was at work behind the scenes, without my knowing it, supplying even more prayer for that day.
I received emails from 2 friends telling me they had prayed for me on Tuesday -- my bad day. One friend knew it was to be a difficult day for me, so she prayed.
The other friend sent me this email -- I am still praying for you, your ministry, and your family on Mondays. Except this week it ended up being Tuesday. Mostly I am praying for peace for you. I believe that God orchestrated it so that she prayed on Tuesday -- my bad day -- even though she had no clue what I was going through. And she prayed for peace -- which is exactly what I needed and what I experienced.
God was at work -- even when I could not see Him. And He graciously revealed this truth to me -- just so I'd remember next time. When I cannot see Him -- He is at work.
My daily Bible reading took me to Psalm 77:19 which talked about God leading the Israelites through the Red Sea. "Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen."
I did not see God's footprints on my very bad day.
Nevertheless, God was at work!
