DEVO 05.23.24

DEVO. 05.23.24

“For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭8‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

- Today was my first day in Kenya!

- I was having a taxi driver pick me up in Nairobi and taking me to the airport to fly to Kisumu.

- I put my suitcase in the trunk and put my carry-on backpack in the backseat.

- I talked to my taxi driver, whose name is Henry, and found out about his family and told him about my mission of spreading the Word of God in different villages.

- Turns out that Henry is a Christian!

- When I got to the airport, I got my suitcase out of the trunk and headed to check in.

- As I was checking my bags, I suddenly realized that my backpack, with all my teaching material, was left in Henry’s car.

- I ran out to the drop off area and asked some of the security guards if they had seen my cab driver.

- Of course they looked at me as if I was crazy (I do believe I was slightly crazy at the time).

- I stood out on the corner with hundreds of cars flying by and realized my backpack was gone!

- I prayed on that corner, out loud, and said “God, please bring me my backpack!”

- I kept standing there and reminded God that I was teaching about Jesus to people who needed Him and I really needed that backpack to accomplish this mission that He brought me into!

- I walked over to the check in area and stopped on the curb before going in.

- I looked up and there was Henry, running to me with my backpack and notebooks in hand!

- I thanked Henry and hugged him like he was my very own son.

- I thanked Henry for his honesty and tipped him very nicely!

- Henry said that as he was driving away from the airport he looked in the back seat and saw my backpack.

- I thanked God for causing Henry to look in his back seat and for answering my prayer!

- I thanked God for bringing my backpack to me in an impossible situation.

- Bottom line, God tells us to ask.

- When we ask, we will receive!

- James 4:2 says, “You do not have because you do not ask God.”

- Let this small devotional remind you to “ask.”

- You can’t receive, if you don’t ask.

- The door isn’t going to open if you don’t knock.

- So, no matter how ridiculous your situation looks, simply “ask!”

- Give God a chance to amaze you!

- Have a great Thursday!
