Years ago when I first started my walk with God, there was a huge thing about praying for Isreal, praying for the peace of Jerusalem.
I had set up a prayer room in my apartment and I wanted to find an Israeli flag to add to the room. I searched everywhere for one, but could not find one anywhere [before internet].
Weeks passed and frustration set in, so late one night I cried out to God, “Father God, all I want is a tinny tiny little Israeli Flag.
How hard could that be?
The very next morning, I was headed into the office when my boss called. He was stuck at his house with his kids and did not have any milk for their breakfast. He asked me if I would mind picking up a gallon and a few bananas.
I dropped them off and headed again toward the office. But then thought that milk and banana sounded nice. So I stopped back at the same store and grabbed one banana and a small milk.
Got back on the road, as I drove and prayed I ate my banana and drank my milk. The tag on the banana was in my way, so I pulled it off and stuck it on the tip of my left index. I continued to drive and pray.
Sitting at a red light I suddenly saw it…
A tinny tiny little Israeli flag attached there on my Chiquita banana sticker.
Of course, the guy in the car next to me thought I was a nut because all I could do was jump up and down in my seat as I pointed to what he might have only thought was my banana. LOL
God is so cool. He did the impossible for me that morning and used Chiquita to deliver.
On a side note, I’ve been told that for me to purchase that banana with an Israeli flag in a Houston supermarket was not possible.
The God of impossibilities strikes again.
This sticker has been taped in my Bible since that morning. One of my most favorite God stories.
