What It Means

   You prayed to God for financial help to pay for dialysis, you got Philhealth membership which is now free for senior citizens.  It means God used the much maligned President Aquino to make it happen. (“Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God.Romans 13:1)

   You now go through airports in the comfort of a wheel chair and someone to push you around even if you didn’t pray for it.  It means God saw you are not as strong as you used to be and too proud to do anything about it.  God used someone in the government no one can now remember to provide for the disabled and someone you are traveling with to make you take the wheel chair. (“your Father knows what you need even before you ask him.Matthew 6:8)

   You prayed to God for money so you can visit your aging father God puts you in the right place at the right time for a fender bender with an unlicensed driver.  God used the insurance company to hand you the money and a brother in your congregation to fix your car like new.  (“Honor your father and your mother” is the first command with a promise: “That it may go well with you and you may remain a long time on the earth.” Ephesians 6:2-3)

   You ask God to help you with a job you are only half qualified for, God helps you figure out new computer applications not being taught when you were in school and keeps you from making mistakes.  You manage to surpass your boss’ expectations.  (“So if any one of you is lacking in wisdom, let him keep asking God, for he gives generously to all and without reproaching, and it will be given him.James 1:5)

   You asked God for help to curb your own personality flaws.  A social worker comes with friendship and understanding to walk you through overcoming quirks you were born and raised with.  (“Who can discern mistakes? Pronounce me innocent from sins I am unaware of.Psalms 19:12)
