I spend a great amount of time in the car. It did not strike me as odd that one way I would hear from God would be through license plates. I am constantly seeing them in front of me, I actually take the time to read them and figure them out. He knows this about me, I believe He made me this way. So I have gotten use to this and consider myself blessed by it, even if it means there is a special hall in the psyche ward for folks like me.
A funny thing happened tonight. A deliberate, â€œsee I told you soâ€ moment that only God orchestrates. While on a Shaw family outing I noticed a license plate in front of me. So I start trying to figure it outâ€¦. â€œhey, I think that guyâ€™s name is Wally in front of us.â€ The plate read something like â€œimwallyâ€ which could have meant several things but I gave my interpretation. My husband, knowing I have divine revelations from license plates says, â€œso is God telling you to go find a new guy named Wally?â€ Really, he will sign the necessary paperwork to commit me when the time comes.
Immediately I say, â€œNo!!! As a matter of fact God has been very quiet lately, thank you very much. In fact, every license plate I have seen has been just like the one we just saw. Last night someone had the word â€˜actuaryâ€™ on the back of their car. I assume that they are very proud of what they do for a living.â€ Honestly, I have had no deep, meaningful moments with God stemming from the back of cars in quite sometime. The last few words he gave me were â€˜dilgencâ€™, â€˜surrndaâ€™ and â€˜destindâ€™, all seen on license plates over the last 6 months. However, the last few weeks have proved to be quiet. I see now He was getting ready to make a point. When you feel like Heâ€™s being more than quiet, I am very much convinced it is because you are about to hear from Him in a profound way.
The VERY NEXT car had something a little different between its two tail lights. Just about the time I say â€œlook, every license plate Iâ€™ve seen lately has just been random. Like that one in front of us with a bunch of jumbled numbers or letters. Unlessâ€¦. could that be Jeremiah 32, verse 27?â€ There, in front of us reads, â€œJ32V27.â€
The series of events and conversation we were having were not coincidence. Had we been half way joking about something else we might have missed that blessed moment of â€œIâ€™m in the detailsâ€ miracles of God. In Godâ€™s perfect timing, He showed up. Why do I ever think anything different? Thanks and praise be to Him! The glory continues to be revealed.
Jeremiah 32:27 I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?
