Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner. (Proverbs 11:31)
Our all knowing God and Father wants everyone to know his position on our earthly matters. The Bible tells us that the word of God cannot be avoided. What God has said, he has said! He will recompense everyone in this world according to their relationship with Jesus Christ!
Some years ago, the Holy Ghost instructed me to go to Wales, United Kingdom (England). This was to participate in the dedication of a church in which I had been used of God to help bring into existence. What was different about this trip was that God's Spirit instructed me to buy only a one-way ticket. I thought how was I to get back home? Over 3000 miles is a long way to swim.
When all the business of God was completed; it was time to go home. One problem, still no ticket. I had not yet been recompense for my righteous obedience. A brother in the Lord, Derek Bennett, insisted to drive me to the airport. I had been ministering to him on this trip and he wanted to spend as much time with me as he could; hopefully, right up to my departure. It seemed that the Lord's work was not finished as of yet concerning this brother. Picking an airport we embarked to the same. Not knowing of my ticket dilemma; he could not have been happier.
Upon arriving at the airport, he insisted to come in with me, along with his two small children. He just kept talking away and asking questions about how does God do this and that. The reality of my dilemma, no ticket, seem to begin to captivate my thoughts. Just then, Derek asked me if I would mind watching his children while he went to the restroom. Having no place to go, I replied, "I would be delighted." After some time he returned carrying in his hand some papers. He looked right at me and said, "I don't know why, but while I was away I felt compelled to buy you a ticket back to America." He added, "I hope you are not upset."
God bought me a ticket! Can you imagine that, God bought me that ticket! When all else seemed to fail, Father God's word went forth. My righteous obedience was recompensed in the earth. I received more that day than an airline ticket back to the US; it was a miracle! The marvelous hand of God our Father was alive in the Scriptures! Praise the Lord!
