My phone refused to turn on no matter what I did. It was not charging despite having been plugged in during the night. I was a bit frustrated because I use my phone to message several persons and I would not be able to do this.
With restrictions in place due to COVID-19, electronic stores are not opened in my area. And more than that, we are not travelling unless it is of absolute necessity, like going to the doctor or the grocery store.
Now, here was I with a phone not charging and feeling frustrated that someone broke my charger charging a game, or speaker.
I started to complain and was met with,
“I know that God can get your phone to work.”
“Go and put the phone to charge for me.”
We fiddled with it for a while and nothing.. Then my daughter went and …”BING!”
The familiar sound of a phone beginning to charge.
God had answered prayer.
But, it was the faith of the children that brought the answer.
I considered my unbelief in this small matter. How could I expect God to move mountains in my life when I didn’t trust Him to charge a phone?
The phone is currently charging. I will once again be able to use it to send messages out to people. But, as I do this, I pray that I am constantly reminded to have faith that:
God is the God of the small things, as well as the big things.
And I can trust that He can and will answer prayer.
