A little over a month ago I was elbow deep into airport problems. I was facing taxiway projects, terminal remodels, and fuel pump repairs, and the list goes on from there.
One day, I was working on the fuel system when a customer said, “You have a bearing going out on your fuel pump. You need to take it to a small motor repair shop. I use to do it, but I’m retired now.”
I sighed. “Okay, thank you.” The minute he left I looked up into the sky. “Really, God! I don’t have time for this!” With determination I laid my hands on the pump and prayed for divine healing — knowing God can fix anything.
Later, after a valve was replaced on the fuel system, I was adjusting the fuel flow. The very same customer was back fueling, and so I asked him. “How’s the fuel flow?”
“Better,” he replied. “It was slow the other day.”
I smiled. “Good, how’s that pump sound?”
He nodded. “Good, everything is working good.”
Pleased, I dropped the Glory bomb. “I prayed over the pump.”
He looked up at me. “You mean, you didn’t have that pump tore down?”
I shook my head. “No, I asked for divine intervention.”
He glanced at the fuel pump and then back at me perplexed. “I guess God fixed your pump!”
My hand shot up into the air. “Praise God! I need divine intervention on this airport all the time!”
“Okay, then,” he seemed confused. On the other hand, I was clearly exuberant. Yes, God is good all the time!
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
