Mr. Peter had a job interview to attend at 10am but his wife developed complications at 9am. He decided to take the wife to the hospital and leave for the interview thereafter but on their way to the hospital, the taxi broke down. It was already 10:30am before he could get another taxi.
He arrived the hospital at 11am, dropped the wife and used the same taxi to go for the interview. He arrived the interview venue at 12noon (2hours late).
He rang the bell but no one opened the door. Meanwhile, earlier at 10am, the company mail delivery had ringed the bell but no one opened the door too. When the door was finally opened, Mr. Peter said “I’m sorry, I came… “He wanted to apologise for coming late, but the Secretary interrupted before he could finish his statement and ushered him to the Board Room. The Secretary said, “I apologise, Mr. Peter, for keeping you waiting since 10am. We actually heard when the bell rang at 10am but we were held up in a meeting with our company suppliers.
However, we have sat since 8am to deliberate on your job specification, your office and the salary.”
Mr. Peter was baffled and said, “Ma’am, I haven’t been interviewed yet’’. The MD answered him and said, “We decided not to conduct the interview at least to save time and also save the interviewees money on transport. So we looked at the papers for the most appropriate person we wanted and we opted for you. Also, we had tested your patience this morning by keeping you waiting intentionally for 2hrs. That’s part of your interview. You won’t be disappointed. You’ll be shown your office, your secretary and the driver assigned to drive your company’s allotted vehicle. You’ll be on probation for 2yrs.”
He got the job!!!
On his way out, his phone rang and it was the wife. She said, “honey, I was delivered of a bouncing baby boy.” It was their fifth child and the only male child. He immediately named the child ‘Miracle’.
He got a double miracle same day. All the disappointments turned out to favour him. God positioned the mail delivery man to ring the bell at 10am.
God also held them up in the meeting until Mr. Peter arrived.
Note: You might be held up by issues in your life and hope might be diminishing and you think the chance is gone. But you know what? God’s waiting for you to release His favour.
So don’t go back along the way. Don’t quit. Don’t be upset by what you face along the way. In fact, God has already deliberated on your specifications.
One more thing: You don’t have to go through any interview, since you have all the qualifications God wants.
