My butcher sells cooked meat. Some of it is delicious, and I frequently avail myself of this. They do it is so much better than I can. But what was that today?
Thursday was a very busy day. There are a number of things that I just forgot. I was pre-occupied with my computer most of the day. It was late at night that I realized I had forgotten to put in my order at the butchers, for Friday morning.
Friday morning, while riding my bike to the shopping centre, I was wondering what I would do if there wasn’t anything that I would like. Well, I settled on getting some mince and cooking that up at home.
Imagine my surprise when I got to the counter and the young lady greeted me with the words, “I have just wrapped your order.”
Wrapped my order? I had not put in an order. However she was adament, there it was on the board, my order. I could not deny it, but who put it there? I had not even made this an object of prayer. I guess I will never know who made the “mistake” to get my order on the board, but I was overjoyed to have the meat I really like.
Isaiah 65:24 says “Before they call I will answer …” Was this an occassion where Father God, knowing my heart and my wishes, influenced a “mistake” and had my order put on the board? I wouldn’t put it past him. His loving kindness is always a step ahead of what we can ask or imagine (Eph.3:20).
