God and the Answering Machine

What if God had voice mail?
voice-mail-service I have learned to live with the answering machines
as a necessary part of modernization.
But I have often wondered
what if God decided to install voice mail?
Imagine praying and hearing this….

“Thank You for calling my fathers’ house
Please selects one of the following
four opinions…..

Press 1 for Requests
Press 2 for Thanksgiving
Press 3 for Complaints
Press 4 for all other inquiries”.

What if God used the familiar excuse?
“All angels are helping other customers right now.
Please stay online. Your call will be answered in the order it was received.”
Can you imagine getting these kinds of responds as you call on God in prayer?

“If you’d like to speak to Gabriel, Press 5;
If you’d like to speak to Michael, Press 6;
For any other angel, Press 7;
If you’d like King David to sing a psalm for you, Press 8;

To find out if your relative is here,
Enter his/her date of death and listen for the list that follows;
For reservations at my father’s house
Simply Press the letters J-O-H-N,
Followed by the numbers 3-1-6

For answers to nagging questions
About dinosaurs, the age of the earth,
And where Noah’s Ark is residing
Wait until you get here !

Our computers show that you have
called once today already.
Please hang up immediately
this office is closed for the weekend.
Please call again Monday”.

Thank God you can’t call him too often
You only need to ring once and God hears you,
Because of Jesus you never get a busy signal.
God takes each call and knows each caller personally.

Then shall thou call, and the Lord shall answer;
Thou shall cry, and he shall say, Here I am.
~Isaiah 58:9 KGV~
