“We’re sorry, but that particular VIN number is not included in the extended warranty.” The words pierced me and the reality of a repair that would be several thousand dollars in the making started to sink in.
My head started to race around, trying to figure out how we were going to come up with that much money while I am still unemployed and what little reserves we had are nearly gone. On a whim, I checked out the website for the car maker. There was nothing on it about exclusions for the extended warranty program on what was a new transmission when I bought my car years ago. Calling the number, I didn’t really know what to expect. My information was taken, I was given a case number and instructions about how to proceed with the dealership.
Before I took the car in, I prayed. And, I asked my prayer warriors to join me. Many did. Seriously, I needed a miracle and there was only one person to ask.
You hear a lot about how God loves to just love on His kids. Friends tell me this all the time, and I do see many instances where I know it HAS to be Him working. But this time, I wasn’t really sure. Yes, He’s big enough. But, really, the odds were stacked.
But still, I prayed. And when I prayed, I was peaceful. Unexplained peace, but peace nonetheless. Nearly two days after taking the car in, I got a call from the dealership. Seems the issue WAS something covered by the warranty and they were in error to tell me otherwise. They would be replacing my transmission with a new one, at NO EXPENSE TO ME. Oh my word!
Prayer answered! Praise God!
Truly, nothing is impossible with God. After reporting the incredible news to my praying friends, two of them responded with nearly the same words. They prayed for a cost-free repair and both felt God leading them to that expectation. Amazing.
My wise friend noted that this instance reminds her that if God can and will fix matters of a car, imagine what He can do with matters of our hearts!?
He can and will do wonders with our hearts. Ask. Receive. Believe.
Yes, NOTHING is impossible with God. Nothing.
