I was very excited when the opportunity arose to help a friend of mine for two months with mission work. But as I sought the Lord He made it clear that I was not to do it. I could not doubt the peace He was giving me to stay home for the summer.
Tuesday morning a week ago, right after I had made that decision, I was reading 1 Thes. 3 where Paul expresses his desire to go visit the believers but cannot so he sends Timothy instead. Knowing that I, like Paul, could not go, I asked the Lord to send “a Timothy” that could help my friend with the work.
Later that week an email came from my friend which read: “You said that you prayed on Tuesday morning for God to raise the right one up. That is really amazing, because that evening, He did. There is a girl who is going to be coming, so I am very grateful.”
Praise God for directly answered prayer! God’s timing is incredible!
