Everyday I speak to God. Made me cry while reading.

Everyday I speak to God.  Made me cry while reading.

>>> "

This will give you chills... GOOD chills.

A young man had been to Wednesday Night Bible Study.

The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's voice.

The young man couldn't help but wonder, 'Does God still speak to people?'

After service, he went out with some friends for coffee and pie And they
discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how God had led
them in different ways.

It was about ten o'clock when the young man started driving home. Sitting in
his car, he just began to pray, 'God... If you still speak to people, speak
to me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey.'

As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought
to stop and buy a gallon of milk.

He shook his head and said out loud, 'God is that you?' He didn't get a
reply and started on toward home.

But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk.

The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the voice of
God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli.

'Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk.' It didn't seem like
too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He stopped and
purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home.

As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge, 'Turn Down that

This is crazy he thought, and drove on past the intersection.

Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street.

At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.

Half jokingly, he said out loud,'Okay, God, I will.'

He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop He
pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in a semi- commercial area
of town. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst of neighborhoods either.
The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the
people were already in bed.

Again, he sensed something, 'Go and give the milk to the people in the house
across the street.' The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it
looked like the people were either gone or they were already asleep. He
started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat.

'Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they
are going to be mad and I will look stupid.' Again, he felt like he should
go and give the milk.

Finally, he opened the door, 'Okay God, if this is you, I will go to the
door and I will give them the milk If you want me to look like a crazy
person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something,
but if they don't answer right away, I am out of here.'

He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise
inside. A man's voice yelled out, 'Who is it? What do you want?' Then the
door opened before the young man could get away.

The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt... He looked like he
just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn't seem
too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep. 'What is it?'

The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, 'Here, I brought this to you.'
The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway. Then from down the hall
came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen. The man was following her
holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man had tears streaming down his

The man began speaking and half crying, 'We were just praying... We had some
big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn't have any milk for
our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some

His wife in the kitchen yelled out, 'I asked Him to send an Angel with
some... Are you an Angel?'

The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on
him and put it in the man's hand. He turned and walked back toward his car
and the tears were streaming down his face.
He knew that God still answers prayers.

THIS IS A SIMPLE TEST. If you believe that God is alive and well, send this
to at least ten people and the person that sent it to you!!! This is so
true. Sometimes it's the simplest things that God asks us to do that cause
us, if we are obedient to what He's asking, to be able to hear His voice
more clearly than ever. Please listen, and obey! It will bless you (and the
Phil. 4:13
This is an easy test - you score 100 or zero. It's your choice.

If you aren't ashamed to do this, please follow the directions... Jesus
said, 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'

Not ashamed... Pass this on.

  1. I liked this story even in fiction. The feeling that you had helped somebody a great deal more a mere milk to us is a lifesaver for somebody else.
