in the Workplace
TGIF Today God Is First, by Os Hillman
For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all
your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not
strike your foot against a stone. - Psalm 91:11-12
For years Sergis ran his small retail business from his store in a local
shopping center. Every week a visitor would drop by to collect a
percentage of his sales. The visitor wasn't his landlord; the mafia had
taken control of business in his small country.
Through the ministry of a workplace Christian, Sergis came to faith in
Christ, and God began a deep work in his life. One day Sergis decided he
could no longer give God's money to the mafia.
A few days later his "friends" paid him a visit. They kidnapped
him, blindfolded him, and placed him in a jail cell located in the middle
of a mafia-controlled house. During the night Sergis sat in the jail cell
discouraged. Two locked doors with guards separated Sergis from his
freedom. Suddenly, in the middle of the night Sergis awoke to a voice:
"Sergis, get up. Follow me." Sergis awakened to a real, in the
flesh, angel of God sent to deliver him. The angel opened the doors while
the guards remained asleep. Sergis and the angel walked quietly past the
guards to freedom. Sergis immediately went to his Christian brothers to
share the miracle that had just taken place.
This true story is living proof that we serve a God who still does
miracles on behalf of His servants. Ask God for the miracle you need
