Before They Call


It was a really big deal.

I had recently received a package at work with an order I had sent out some time before.

There were several items in the package that were quite important.

Last week, I was working at a different location and I had taken the box and its contents with me.

Today, I was once again going to work at a different location.

I needed two of the items in the box.

Where was it?

I looked all over my area, to no avail.

I considered that I might have left the box in my car from last week.

Checking there, still I could not find it.

It didn’t make any sense.

Walking alone into the area nearest my office, I prayed.

My prayer was something like this:

“Lord, if that box is in this room somewhere, would you please let me find it?”

Almost immediately, in perhaps only a second or two, my eyes fell on the box.

It had been placed in a tall chair and I just had not seen it before.

Problem solved.

Answered prayer.

A reminder that God is with me through every moment of the day.

He is ready to help me, even if it is only to find a box.

In the Old Testament book of Isaiah, God is describing what things will be like when there is a new heaven and a new earth.

He says, Before they call I will answer;
    while they are yet speaking I will hear.

—Isaiah 65:24

I feel that I experienced this today.

How blessed we are to have a heavenly Father who cares about us and hears us when we call.
