That’s what I said to God 21 years ago. I was angry and I was having a MAJOR pity party.
A voice spoke to my soul. I didn’t hear it with my ears. I heard it loud and clear in my spirit.
“Yes I do know what it’s like to be a human being. I became one. I know exactly what it’s like.”
I could not have come up with that at that particular time and in the frame of mind I was in.
It was all I needed to hear. God had delivered the perfect message to me when I needed Him most. My spirit was calmed immediately.
The next week-end I went to a Baptist men’s retreat for the week-end. Unbeknownst to me, there was an author speaking at the retreat, Jeff VanVonderen. He had just written a book called, “Tired of Trying to Measure Up.” Imagine that. The very words I had said to God days before. I bought the book at the retreat and read the entire thing. Again, it was exactly what I needed to hear.
There's an old saying: "Was it a coincidence, or was it God? It was probably God." Amen to that I say.
I still get mad at God sometimes, but he’s patient with me that way. After having a handful of experiences like the one I just described, it’s pretty hard for me to doubt Him.
Does he do these things in your life? I bet he does. Sometimes we just have to be willing to listen.
