Can I Have a Penney?

The story is told about a man who was behind in his finances and had many overdue bills. So he resorted to prayer, and was very suprized to discover God answering him aloud each time he asked God a question.

The man decided to make a claim against God's promises by asking, "God, is it true that your Word says that "A day in Your courts is better than a thousand?"

And God answered and said, "Yes, my son!"

And the man continued, "Well then does that mean that a penney to You would be worth a thousand to mere mortals like myself?"

And God answered, "Of course, my son!"

The man smiled and asked once more, "May I have a penney, God?"

And God replied, "Of course my son, I will give it to you tomorrow!" I must admit that while the man may not have gotten what he really wanted, I rather like the rate of return on that investment! But it goes to show us that God's timetable, as well as the value He places on things, is considerably greater than anything we could ever hope to express.

The Psalmist explains "O God, behold our shield, and look upon the face of Your anointed. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield: The Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in You." Psalm 84:9-12.

Imagine that, a doorkeeper in the house of God! Doorkeepers get pretty good tips, besides! Have a blessed day.
