A young man had been to Wednesday Night Bible Study. The Pastor had shared about listening to God and
obeying the Lord's voice. The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does
God still speak to people?"


After service, he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they
discussed the message. Several
different ones talked about how God had led them in different
ways.


It was about ten o'clock when
the young man started driving home. Sitting in his car, he just began to pray,
"God...If you still speak to people, speak to me. I will listen. I will do
my best to obey."


As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest
thought to stop and buy a gallon of milk.


He shook his head and said out loud, "God is that you?" He
didn't get a reply and started on toward home.

But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk.


The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the voice
of God, and how little Samuel ran to
Eli.


"Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk." It
didn't seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could
always use the milk. He stopped and purchased the gallon of milk and started
off toward home.


As
he passed Seventh Street,
he again felt the urge, "Turn Down that street."


This is crazy he thought, and drove on past the intersection.

Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street .

At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.

Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will."

He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop. He
pulled over to the curb and looked
around. He was in a semi- commercial area of town. It wasn't the best but it
wasn't the worst of neighborhoods either. The businesses were closed and most
of the houses looked dark like the people were already in bed.


Again,
he sensed something, "Go and give the milk to the people in the house
across the street." The young man
looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like the people were either gone
or they were already asleep. He started to open the door and then sat back in
the car seat.


"Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them
up, they are going to be mad and I will
look stupid." Again, he felt like he should go and give the
milk.


Finally, he opened the door, "Okay God, if this is you, I will go
to the door and I will give them the milk. If you
want me to look like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that
will count for something, but if they don't answer right away, I am out of
here."


He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise
inside. A man's voice yelled out, "Who
is it? What do you want?" Then the door opened before the young man could
get away.


The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on
his face and he didn't seem too happy to have some stranger standing on his
doorstep. "What is it?"


The
young man thrust out the gallon of milk, "Here, I brought this to you."
The man took the milk and rushed
down a hallway.


Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the
kitchen. The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man
had tears streaming down his face.


The man began speaking and half crying, "We were just praying. We
had some big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn't have any milk
for our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some
milk."


His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I ask him to send an Angel
with some. Are you an Angel?"


The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he
had on him and put in the man's hand. He
turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were streaming down his
face.


He knew that God still answers prayers.
