This will give you the chills........

This will give you the chills........
 GOOD chills.
 A young man had been to Wednesday Night Bible
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 face.
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 ask 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 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 clear than ever. Please listen, and obey! It will bless you
(and the world). 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.
