U Oright Guys & Girls? Have a read of this very interesting story that one of the Bishops from my church posted in our weekly magazine a few weeks ago.
A certain man died and went to heaven. He was then granted a chance to go round God’s premises, and the angel Gabriel showed him around.
They entered the first department, a very big hall where so many angels (in their millions) were busy sorting letters.
The man was surprised and asked in amusement, “What are they doing?”
Gabriel answered, “They are sorting letters of prayer requests according to their categories, for people who are sick, seeking jobs, need deliverance, for divine intervention, etc.” They moved into the next department where they saw almost the same set-up, but this time, the angels were packing letters into boxes and sealing them.
Again, the man asked what they were doing and the angel told him that they were sealing God’s letter in reply to the request made by people on earth for healing, jobs, and so on. Lastly, they went to the last department where they saw only one man sitting and dozing with nothing much to do.
This time, the man asked the angel slowly, “Why is this man sitting here?” Gabriel turned and looked at the man, “This department is not always as busy as the other ones. The angel here is supposed to be receiving letters of thanksgiving from people on earth who have received their replies of blessing, healing from God, but none of them seem to remember where their blessings came from. That is why this department has only one man to take care of all the duties, and he is never busy, that’s why you see him dozing.”
What has God done for you? How many answers to your requests have you received? How many obstacles have you overcome? In how many wars of life did you find yourself a victor? Do you give thanks to God?
We should by all means keep the other departments busy as well, at the end of the day, it was God Himself who told us to ask— and we’ll indeed keep on asking so we can glorify Him.
However, let’s all give Him thanks always, and the best way to do that is not ONLY by making a prayer of thanksgiving, but more importantly, by sharing our testimonies and good news with everyone we know.
Let’s evangelise. Let’s save souls. Let’s multiply our talents. May God bless you abundantly.
