God Knows Where You Are
(By Ken Gaub - Yakima, Washington)

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and
mighty things, which thou knowest not." - Jer 33:3

Do you believe that God not only loves you, but knows where you are and what
you're doing every minute of the day?

I certainly do after an amazing experience I had several years ago. At the
time I was driving on
I-75 near Dayton, Ohio, with my wife and children. We turned off the
highway for a rest and refreshment stop. My wife Barbara and children went
into the restaurant. I suddenly felt the need to stretch my legs, so waved
them off ahead saying I'd join them later. I bought a soft drink, and as I
walked toward a Dairy Queen, feelings of self-pity enshrouded my mind. I
loved the Lord and my ministry, but I felt drained, burdened. My cup was
empty.

Suddenly the impatient ringing of a telephone nearby jarred me out of my
doldrums. It was coming from a phone booth at a service station on the
corner. Wasn't anyone going to answer the phone?

Noise from the traffic flowing through the busy intersection must have
drowned out the sound because the service station attendant continued
looking after his customers, oblivious to the incessant ringing.

"Why doesn't somebody answer that phone?" I muttered. I began reasoning.
It may be important. What if it's an emergency? Curiosity overcame my
indifference. I stepped inside the booth and picked up the phone. "Hello,"
I said casually and took a big sip of my drink. The operator said:" Long
distance call for Ken Gaub."

My eyes widened, and I almost choked on a chunk of ice. Swallowing hard, I
said, "You're crazy!" Then realizing I shouldn't speak to an operator like
that, I added, "This can't be! I was walking down the road, not bothering
anyone, and the phone was ringing...

"Is Ken Gaub there?" the operator interrupted, "I have a long distance call
for him."

It took a moment to gain control of my babbling, but I finally replied,
"Yes, he is here." Searching for a possible explanation, I wondered if I
could possibly be on Candid Camera! Still shaken,
perplexed, I asked, "How in the world did you reach me here? I was walking
down the road, the pay phone started ringing, and I just answered it on
chance. You can't mean me."

"Well," the operator asked, "is Mr. Gaub there or isn't he?" "Yes, I am Ken
Gaub," I said, finally convinced by the tone of her voice that the call was
real. Then I heard another voice say, "Yes, that's him, operator. That's
Ken Gaub."

I listened dumbfounded to a strange voice identify herself. "I'm Millie
from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. You don't know me, Mr. Gaub, but I'm
desperate. Please help me."

"What can I do for you?"

She began weeping. Finally she regained control and continued. "I was
about to commit suicide, had just finished writing a note, when I began to
pray and tell God I really didn't want to do this. Then I suddenly
remembered seeing you on television and thought if I could just talk to you,
you could help me. I knew that was impossible because I didn't know how to
reach you, I didn't know anyone who could help me find you. Then some
numbers came to my mind, and I scribbled them down."

At this point she began weeping again, and I prayed silently for wisdom to
help her. She continued, "I looked at the numbers and thought, `Wouldn't it
be wonderful if I had a miracle from God, and He has given me Ken's phone
number?' I decided to try calling it. I
can't believe I'm talking to you. Are you in your office in California?" I
replied, "Lady, I don't have an office in California. My office is in
Yakima, Washington." A little surprised, she asked,
"Oh really, then where are you?" "Don't you know?" I responded. "You made
the call." She
explained, "But I don't even know what area I'm calling. I just dialed the
number that I had on this paper." "Ma'am, you won't believe this, but I'm in
a phone booth in Dayton, Ohio!"
"Really?" she exclaimed. "Well, what are you doing there?" I kidded her
gently, "Well, I'm answering the phone. It was ringing as I walked by, so I
answered it."

Knowing this encounter could only have been arranged by God, I began to
counsel the woman. As she told me of her despair and frustration, the
presence of the Holy Spirit flooded the phone booth giving me words of
wisdom beyond my ability. In a matter of moments, she prayed
the sinner's prayer and met the One who would lead her out of her situation
into a new life.

I walked away from that telephone booth with an electrifying sense of our
heavenly Father's concern for each of His children. What were the
astronomical odds of this happening?
With all the millions of phones and innumerable combinations of numbers,
only an all-knowing God could have caused that woman to call that number in
that phone booth at that moment in time.

Forgetting my drink and nearly bursting with exhilaration, I headed back to
my family, wondering if they would believe my story. Maybe I better not
tell this, I thought, but I couldn't contain it. "Barb, you won't believe
this! God knows where I am!"

God Also Knows Where You Are. Place Yourself In His Hands,
Concentrate On Knowing His Will For Your Life, And He Will Never Forsake Or
Forget You.
