"All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” John 16:15 NIV
I love that throughout Scripture God always told someone what He was going to do before He did it. That has always been one of my greatest desires - to be taken into the Lord’s confidence in big and small ways. In Scripture, He confided in the prophets and others so they could warn people and save them from danger. He confided in Abraham in order to save Lot from the burning sulfur that was about to rain down on Sodom. He confided in Jonah in order to give the Ninevites a chance to repent. He still confides in some of us in order to give others of us a chance to repent. I am telling the following stories from memory so the details might not be one hundred percent accurate, but details aside, they are both true. One was told to me years ago by an acquaintance and the other I read years ago in a book. I wish I could remember the book and the author but I cannot.
