Isn't it amazing how God works in our lives! On a
Saturday night several weeks ago, this pastor was
working late, and decided to call his wife before he
left for home. It was about 10:00 PM, but his wife
didn't answer the phone. The pastor let it ring many
times. He thought it was odd that she didn't answer,
but decided to wrap up a few things and try again in a
few minutes. When he tried again she answered right
away. He asked her why she hadn't answered before,
and she said that it hadn't rung at their house. They
brushed it off as a fluke and went on their merry ways.
The following Monday, the pastor received a call at the
church office, which was the phone that he'd used that
Saturday night. The man that he spoke with wanted to
know why he'd called on Saturday night. The pastor
couldn't figure out what the man was talking about. Then
the man said, "It rang and rang, but I didn't answer."
The pastor remembered the mishap and apologized for
disturbing him, explaining that he'd intended to call
his wife. The man said, "That's OK. Let me tell you my
story. You see, I was planning to commit suicide on
Saturday night, but before I did, I prayed, 'God if
you're there, and you don't want me to do this, give me
a sign now.' At that point my phone started to ring. I
looked at the caller ID, and it said, 'Almighty God.'
I was afraid to answer!"
The reason why it showed on the man's caller ID that the
call came from "Almighty God" is because the church that
the pastor attends is called Almighty God Tabernacle!
If you believe that God answers prayers then pass this
