One dark rainy night a salesman had a flat tire on a lonely road. But to his dismay he had no lug wrench. Seeing a nearby farmhouse, he set out on foot. Surely the farmer would have a lug wrench, he thought. But would he even come to the door? And if he did, he'd probably be furious at being bothered. He's say, "What's the big idea getting me out of bed in the middle of the night?"
This thought made the salesman angry. Why, that farmer is a selfish old clod to refuse to help me. Finally the man reached the house. Frustrated and drenched, he banged on the door. "Who's there?" a voice called out from a window overhead.
"You know good and well who it is," yelled the salesman, his face red with anger. "It's me! And you can keep your old lug wrench! I wouldn't borrow it is it was the last one in the county."
How many of us face our lives with this attitude? It is because of this misunderstanding about people around us and about the situation around us we miss out many blessings. Many of us misunderstand the love of God too at many times in our life.
Many a times we decide that God wouldn't help us out in our desperate situations and get angry on our God. Our God is a loving God. Never will he back out from helping us. We need not fear that at the middle of the night our God wont help us out because He may be resting. Remember, Our God never sleeps nor slumbers!!
So fear not! Have a clear understanding!! God is our helper at all times!!
