A woman was at work when she received a phone call that her small daughter was very sick with a fever. She left her work and on the way back stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication. She got back to her car but found that she had locked her keys in the car. She didn’t know what to do; she called home and told the baby sitter what had happened. The baby sitter told her that the fever is getting worse.
She bowed her head and asked God to send her help. Within five minutes a beat up old motor cycle pulled up, with a dirty, greasy, bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag on his head. The woman thought, “This is what you sent to help me?” The man got off of his motor cycle and asked if he could help. She said, “Yes, my daughter is very sick. I stopped to get her some medication and I locked my keys in my car. I must get home to her. Please, can you unlock my car?” He said, “Sure.” He walked over to the car with a rusty coat hanger he picked up from the road side, and in less than a minute the car was opened. She hugged the man and through her tears she said, “Thank you so much! You are a very nice man.” The man replied, “Lady, I am not a nice man. I just got out of prison today. I was in prison for car theft and have only been out for about an hour.” The lady was surprised at how God arranged a competent man to help her. She also was surprised to see how such a useful coat hanger, which was left unnoticed at the very place she most wanted it, happened to be of help to her.
This story projects the best of lessons that a successful human being most follows. God is not only merciful but also all powerful; He always is aside, ready to help His creation. But there are a few conditions: The first of it is that you should be sure that God help is possible; the next condition is that you should not be conditioned with a belief that God help appears only the way you think; the last of it is that you should be in absolute surrender.
