In Michigan, there’s a law that you can turn right on a red light after you have stopped and checked traffic. That is fine for small intersections and country roads. I don’t like it at major intersections because the traffic is farther away and you just never know who might be speeding along in a lane towards you. So I like to just wait at these stops for a green light. Then the people behind me honk and expect me to turn, even when I’m not comfortable doing so.
So I was going to be at one of these stops and I prayed for a green light. Well, as I got near, I could see that two cars were stopped at a red light ahead of me. As I paused, I relaxed. Their blinkers weren’t on so they were going straight through the intersection on green. I hadn’t thought about that possibility. It worked out splendidly and I made my turn on green as I like to do.
Several times I have told the Lord how to answer my prayer. I have a finances problem right now. I asked Him to work it my way. He declined that suggestion. He does promise to meet my needs. I know that He will provide in another way, a way I am not expecting.
That little incident at the light was the highlight of my day. I had much frustration trying to find some things shopping that I couldn’t find. All I could do was smile that The Lord met me and showed me He has everything covered, but in His own way. I just love it when He does that.
