A Testimony ~ God Has His Ways …

This testimony is to give Almighty God the glory and praise He rightfully deserves. He is worthy. Blessed be the Lamb of God – the Lord Jesus Christ.

Yesterday, 22nd September 2010, as it was, a matter came up on my diary at my present vocation as a paralegal estate administrator for a firm of attorneys. I had previously dealt with an Afrikaans client named Stephan and was in the process of transferring a certain asset to him. On the day I sent a facsimile to him requesting certain requirements and then diarised the matter for a future date; when I received a phone call from his wife Tanya who advised me that her husband had passed away about three months ago. I was truly surprised and offered her my condolences and advised her in a professional capacity what she has to do in order to report her late husband’s deceased estate to the relevant authorities.

When closing the conversation, I enquired of Tanya if she knew what happens to people when they die? We got into a conversation and Tanya said she was going to heaven as she is a believer in God. During our conversation I then shared the Law of God briefly with Tanya and said she must please also examine herself to be absolutely sure of her salvation. I then told her I’d send her an e-mail setting out what she must do to report her husband’s estate at the High Court in Kimberley.

Please bear in mind I had never before corresponded with her and had only dealt with her husband. I ended off the e-mail correspondence with the following . . .

Thank you also for listening to the witness of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please take some time out to view the links below with regards to your Salvation and to be encouraged in the Lord. If you know someone who is not saved from God’s wrath to come, then get them to see how they will stand before Almighty God on the Day of Judgment. Invite them to view the links – eternity is a very long time to be wrong!! I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Hey Gary

I had a look at the links you send me, and it really got to me. I was in such a flat spin this morning when I spoke to you, you got me unexpectedly and I didn’t know what to make of it. It got me thinking and I thought about what if it was God asking me that questions, what would I have said then! After my husband’s death I was so mad at God and my husband even when I knew what was happening en even when I know that I am a child of our Savior and shouldn’t be mad at them, everybody around me gave me advise stood by my side every step of the way but most important I left God behind I didn’t want His comfort and love because He took something dear to me.

About a month ago I started to turn my life around, I excepted what had happen and are really trying to make my life better with God, for there is no one that understand me like He does.

So all I want to tell you is THANK YOU!!! I wanted answers to my questions and I received it from you, one thing I can assure you is that my life is in die [the] hands of our Savior God. May He bless you for helping me even when you didn’t know it!

With all my Love

Was this all by chance? No. Was this in God’s providence? I do believe so. Yes, God has HIS ways . . . let us just be obedient to His will.

Soli Deo Gloria (Glory to God alone)
