God answers prayer!

This is a forward I receive. I don’t like to receive forwards but I thought this is a really neat story to share!
 
A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study.

The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord’s voice.

The young man couldn’t help but wonder, "Does God still speak to people?"

After service he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they
discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how God had led
them in
different ways.

It was about ten o’clock when the young man started driving home. Sitting in
his car, he just began to pray, "God…If you still speak to people speak to
me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey."

As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought
to stop and buy a gallon of milk.

He shook his head and said out loud, "God is that you?" He didn’t get a
reply and started on toward home.

But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk.

The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn’t recognize the voice of
God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli.

"Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk."  It didn’t seem like
too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He stopped and
purchased the gallon of milk and
started off toward home.

As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge, "Turn Down that
street."

This is crazy he thought and drove on past the intersection.

Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh  Street.

At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.

Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will".

He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop. He
pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in semi commercial area of
town. It wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst of neighborhoods either.
The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the
people were already in bed.

Again, he sensed something, "Go and give the milk to the people in the house
across the street." The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it
looked like the people were either gone or they were already asleep. He
started to open the door and then sat back
in the car seat.

"Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they
are going to be mad and I will look stupid." Again, he felt like he should
go and give the milk

Finally, he opened the door, "Okay God, if this is you, I will go to the
door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy
person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something
but if they don’t answer right away, I am out of here."

He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise
inside. A man’s voice yelled out, "Who is it? What do you want?" Then the
door opened before the young man could get away.

The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt. He looked like he just
got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn’t seem too
happy to have some stranger
standing on his doorstep. "What is it?"

The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, "Here, I brought this to you."
The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway.

Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen.
The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man had
tears streaming down his face.

The man began speaking and half crying, "We were just praying. We had some
big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn’t have any milk for
our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some
milk."

His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I ask him to send an Angel with some.
Are you an Angel?"

The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on
him and put in the man’s hand. He turned and walked back toward his car and
the tears were streaming down his face.

He knew that God still answers prayers.
