I had an interesting interaction this morning on the internet. A lady I know in another state wrote to me saying...
6:56 a.m. EST - M: "I am asking for prayers for my sister- she was found by my brother hanging in her closet and is still alive but on a ventilator and they are not detecting any brain activity- Thanks."
8:49 a.m. EST - Me: "oh nooooo - of course - praying.."
10:15 a.m. EST - M: "Thank you for your prayers!!! She just opened her eyes!"
11:31 a.m. EST - Me: "wow - thank you Jesus - let me know when you know more."
As I say, I don't know any more details than this, but its interesting to note what rises in our hearts when we hear something like this. Unbelief? Thanksgiving to God? perhaps what we call a healthy scepticism (believe it when I see it approach)?
I really am not sure about what happened today exactly. All I know is what I have written here, but I am reminded of the words of Martin Luther, "The Holy Spirit is not a sceptic."
Just something to ponder. - JS
