THE OLD WHALER

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

An old whaling captain told the story of the time he had been sailing into a hard wind all morning, making little headway. About noon the idea suddenly came to his mind, ‘Why battle these waves? There are probably just as many whales to the north as to the south.” Immediately he changed the course of his ship. One hour later he overtook four lifeboats containing fourteen sailors, the only survivors of a shipwreck. They had been adrift ten days, praying frantically for rescue. They could not have survived another day.

The old whaler said, “I am convinced God put that idea into my mind to change the course of my ship. You see, I begin every day of my life with a prayer that God will use me to help someone else – and He does!”

The Living Bible says, “Strange as it seems, we Christians actually do have within us a portion of the very thoughts and mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16). What are you asking God to do through you?
