Today while watching television and playing a word game on my tablet, I got this strong urge to withdraw $50 out of my savings account. I didn’t have any particular plans for it, it was just something that I felt that I needed to do. So, I dropped everything and withdrew the money.
About an hour and a half later after making the withdrawal I received a telephone call from a desperate friend. She told me that she didn’t get paid until Friday and that she was completely out of food. She said she had just eaten her last granola bar. She asked me if I could help her out by giving her $20 so she could buy some food for herself and her special needs son. I told her, yes and I arranged to get the $50 to her. I gave her the full $50 because I knew $20 would not be enough for the two of them.
After getting the money to her, I was back on the couch watching television and playing a word game. While sitting there I suddenly was hit in the head with a gust of wind. It was so hard; it pushed my head back and I sucked in my breath. Instantly I said, “Ohhhhh that was You!” meaning the Holy Spirit. “You wanted me to get the money so that I would have it for my friend when she called. Wow!”
I encourage you to stay ready for the gust of wind!
