What if God Had Voicemail?
We have all learned to live with voicemail as a necessary part of modern life. But have you wondered, ‘What if God decided to install voicemail?’
Imagine praying and hearing this: “Thank you for calling My Father’s House. Please select one of the following options: press 1 for Requests; press 2 for Thanksgiving; press 3 for Complaints; or press 4 for all other inquires.”
What if God used the familiar excuse; ”I’m sorry, all of our angels are busy helping other sinners right now. However, your prayer is important to us and will be answered in the order it was received, so please stay on the line.”
Can you imagine getting these kinds of responses as you call God in prayer: “If you would like to speak to Gabriel, press 1; Michael, press 2; for a directory of all our other angels, press 3. If you would like to hear Kind David sing a Psalm while you are holding, please press 4.” What if we heard on the other side, “Our computers show that you have already prayed once today, please hang up and try again tomorrow. This office is closed for the weekend to observe a religious holiday, please pray again Monday after 9:00am. If you need emergency assistance when this office is closed, contact your local minister.”
Aren’t you glad God doesn’t have voicemail? God listens whenever we need to pray! Have you talked to Him today?
Thanks to Bob & Jean Watson for passing along these thought-provoking words. Blessings, Pastor Michael
