{December 8, 2006}   The Caller ID


God works in mysterious ways, doesn’t He?
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 the phone 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 fordisturbing 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!!
