Believe and be saved

God is never late and his time keeping is perfect. Praise God

One day I arranged to see my friend as we had planned to go shopping together. After we had a good look around the shops we came home. My friend suddenly remembered that she had made an agreement with a blind neighbour to spend some time with him. She had given him a specific time for the visit and she was already over an hour late, my friend knew the blind neighbour would be upset and disappointed because he was very excited about the visit at the time the arrangement was made.

My friend invited me to go with her on the visit and as we set off she explained to me that her blind neighbour was a very nice man who had carers looking after him. We arrived much later than expected and when we rang the doorbell there was no reply. At that point a scripture came to my mind; Revelation 3:20 ‘Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me’. We were just about to leave when the man suddenly appeared at the bottom of the cul-de-sac. The man had a large smile on his face when his carer told him that we were waiting at the door.

We were invited into the house and when we sat down he explained how sad he felt when my friend did not arrive for the visit and after waiting for a while he decided to take a stroll with his carer to see if he would bump into her. He said his heart skipped a beat with joy when his carer had told him that we were at the front door.  When the carer went into the kitchen to make us all a cup of tea I asked the blind man if he believed in God and he said yes he did. He then went on to say that ‘Jesus died on a cross for us many years ago’ to which I replied ‘yes he certainly did and Jesus did this for you and for me and for everyone in the whole world’. When his carer returned with the tea I asked him (the carer) the same question ‘do you believe in God?' He replied ‘of course I do, I am a born again Christian’, to which I was pleasantly surprised. I then shared my testimony with everyone while we drank our cup of tea.

After hearing my testimony the blind man started to pray. During the prayer he asked Jesus to come into his life as his Lord and Saviour and he repented of all his sins.  I was so excited to have witnessed the blind man give his life to the Lord, Amen. Although we were late for the visit, God is never late and his time keeping is perfect. Psalm 27:14 ‘Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord'. Praise God.

We spent the remainder of evening Praising God, discussing his Word and listening to Christian radio. We had just an amazing evening of fellowship. Praise God.
