Are there Guardian Angels?
Do Guardian Angels Exist?
This will give you the chills... Good Chills
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 bega! n to pra y, "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
This i s 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 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." Th! e 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
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.
