God Keeps His Word

Greetings, My Friends;
This may sound like an unusual title, but it fits. Time for another true story. This one concerns a very close relative, who we will call Laura for this story.
 Laura and her husband have been struggling financially, for a number of years. About a year ago, her husband found the Lord. He knew Christ, but he wasn't fully committed yet. Due to some less than wonderful years since childhood, Laura was afraid of God, and wanted no part of Him.
Over the last year or so, her husband slowly brought God into the picture. Even though they had been working very hard to start a small business, they had no success. Well one day they actually sold something. They decided to give a little something to a charity for children.
Well, a couple of months went by with minor success. Each time they made a little extra, they gave a little. They were having trouble paying their bills, but they still gave. While all of this was going on, Laura was looking for a job. There was one job she  really wanted, so she applied as instructed. We told her to ask God for the job, then claim it as hers. She did, although we didn't know how she really felt, we did too.
Well, a few more months went by with no job. Then one day a couple of weeks ago, her husband needed a part for his car. Laura never went with him for parts before, but this time she did. Right next door to the auto parts place was a temporary hiring location for the very company she wanted. She filled out an application.
A couple of days went by and they called her. She again claimed the job and went for an interview. 2 days later they called her for a 2nd interview. She was about to leave her house on the appointed day, when she got a phone call telling  her the appointment is canceled because the interviewer would not be there. Again, she was told to come back in 2 days.
Laura was disappointed, but held onto her claim. Once she got to the second interview, they told her that a problem came up and they cannot interview. They told her to call back in a couple of days.  At this point, Laura called up heartbroken and crying. She could not understand what happened. She said  she told a few friends that she claimed the job,  how could she not have it?
To make a long story short, she was called in a couple of days later and interviewed. Again, another 2 days, but this time she was hired. The job she got was better than the one she applied for. Is God incredible, or what?
God bless you and remember,
Jesus loves you,
Prayer of Salvation;
"Oh God in heaven, I believe with all my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive Your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen."
