Go to God in Prayer daily. "And
all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall
receive." Matthew 21:22
It was in the
fall of 1995 when I was visiting the beautiful black Hills of
South Dakota during the last few days of October, which was over a
thousand miles away from my home back in Southern California. I was
there just a couple of days when on a Monday of
October 30, my spirit became very heavy and I had to
urgently get back home to California. My friends and family had all told me that it was
impossible for me to fly back at this time, since all of the
flights at the airport were not only delayed but that they were all
canceled today due to the very bad weather that was caused
by the snow, rain and fog.
taken Friday August 4, 2007 as I walked out of a supermarket in
Covina, CA. Parents were taken their children out of their parked
vehicles to show them this magnificent sight from God that my little
camera could not do justice)
I have learned
firsthand from all the countless past experiences that
we each have to go through what we call "Our
life," that there are no such thing as a accident or
coincidence that happens to each one of us in our lives. And
that there is no greater meaning to this truth than those
times that requires each of us to have great faith.
God has a way of shaping each of
our precious lives, so that we will faithfully turn to Him
and put our total trust in Him no matter how
overwhelming our circumstances may seem to us. And
for me, this day was no different.
I knew I had to put all my faith and
courage in a supernatural God and the supernatural blessings
that He has promised each one of us, even though I could not visibly
see them at first.
I knew not to put my faith based on
the fears and doubts from what others could visibly
see and believe in the physical and natural world around us.
I prayed with a heavy heart and a
faithful spirit and asked God to make it possible for me
to go back home this day.
I knew in order for me to please God
that I had to not only believe with unwavering faith but that I
had to act on what I believe.
So you see, it isn't enough just to
have faith. You must also do good to prove that you have it. Faith
that doesn't show itself by good works is no faith at all-it is dead
and useless." James 2:17
The good Lord has always taught me
that if you're going to pray for rain, then you better act on it and carry a umbrella with you
everywhere you go. And never worry about what the
faithless think about your behavior, just worry about what God
So I ignored what anyone else would do
who did not want their behavior to
appear crazy and irrational with what seemed like blizzard
I called for a taxi cab to take
me to the airport.
the taxi service thought that it was very
unusual for anyone to call them, hoping that they were going to
catch a flight out today.
But I was not
dealing with the natural realm of man, but in the
supernatural realm of God.
I wondered as I got into the taxi cab, would
things have been different for me if I would have been a 90
year old man trying to get into a taxi cab under these
conditions. Would my family or friends have tried to restrain me or
call a psychiatrist to evaluate me for the next 24
The drive to the airport was so bizarre not
seeing any traffic.
I thanked the taxi driver for dropping me off at
the airport. It was freezing and miserable outside so I quickly
started walking towards the welcoming and warm
embrace inside the airport terminal.
Even though it was normal to see so much
vastness of open space at an commercial airport. I only noticed
just an handful of people there. They seemed so quiet in their
demeanor and conversation. Like we were at a public library and it
was rude to talk out loud. It looked so eerie to see and experience
so much emptiness of the sound of people everywhere I
It looked like a barren
wasteland seeing all the parked commercial airplanes
outside and the absence of human life inside. It seemed strange
not hearing the normal crowds of people talking, laughing, and
crying as they normally would be welcoming their loved ones
coming in or seeing their loved ones off.
The place was so quiet that it seemed like
you were visually walking through a huge empty vacuum void
of any sound or life.
It was surreal.
I could not help thinking about the very few
people that I could see and how this scene looked like
something that came straight out of the movie "Left
It made me start wondering if these people
were faith based and were also here praying and hoping to see their
loved one's walk through the terminal gates any minute even
though their were no planes visibly landing or
Or were they going to be like the faithless
people in the dramatic movie "Left Behind" where all the people
who did not believe in God were tragically left behind
everywhere and every place including at the airports when our
Lord and Savior returned. Where they just cannot believe what
just happened to them as most of their loved one's disappeared to
heaven to be with God. So they just stand waiting, hoping for a
second chance at redemption.
I knew that no matter what our present
circumstances were or no matter what spiritual level that we
presently were at in our faith walk with God, that God has
a way of shaping each one of our lives so that
each one of us would faithfully turn to Him.
That we may all fulfill one of our sacred
purposes in our lives by glorifying God to all others
by reassuring them that He is always close to those who
are crushed in spirit and He will mend their broken
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he
rescues those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18 NLT
I started to look for someone who
worked at the airport who could give me any updated information on
the current weather conditions. I wanted to see if God had
already answered my prayer of going back home to California
I found one of the very few people that
were still standing behind one of the airline counters and
without asking me what flight or airline I was on, she kindly told
me that all the flights were canceled today due to the bad weather.
I decided to start walking to the very
large room where all the current flight schedules and
information were posted on the monitors above our heads for all to
see. I was hoping that the kind lady behind the airline counter had
made a mistake because God was going to give me a ride home
As I walked into the area that gives everyone
the current status on every airplane that was coming in or taking
off, every monitor everywhere I looked echoed the same message only
confirming what the airport employee had already said.
At first it was a little disturbing to see the
repeated message of "Flight canceled" on every monitor as I
I knew that I needed to find a place to
pray and everywhere I looked there were rows of empty seats.
It was so effortless for me to physically
find an isolated spot with a beautiful view looking
through the huge window where you could stare off at
the lonely and strange unison of all the parked and unmoving
airplanes outside on this very cold and unforgiving October
Again Satan's voice of doubt was trying to
peck away at my armor of faith by reminding me why all the flights
were canceled and why no airplanes were taking off today.
I knew that God always answers our prayers, and
many times the answer is not a no, but for us to faithfully have the
patience to wait.
So I sat down and I started to pray the prayer
of faith. Then I told God that He knew the heaviness of my
heart for me to go back home to California, not tomorrow but
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from
faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
I told God that I am not going
to listen to anyone who thinks that I am acting foolish
that I must be blind for not seeing the bad weather
conditions that was in front of my eyes.
I told God that if He wanted me
to stay or leave that I would be obedient to His divine Will
I told God that I was going to wait and
just sit here and talk with Him until He gave me a
I closed my eyes from staring back at the bad
weather that was directly in front of me. As if it was
trying to create doubt in me and trying to get me to
reason with my rational mind to just call a taxi cab to
take me back into town.
Then I started to praise and thank God for
answering my heartfelt prayers by taking me back home to
California today, again and again I praised Him for this.
I thanked Him for never leaving me or forsaking me one time.
It was so quiet when it seemed like almost an hour had flew
by when I was deep in prayer when I had been startled by a
very loud voice that came over the airport speakers.
At this point I was almost surprised that it was not the voice of
What this person said next brought excitement to my
The person said that they have a slight break in the weather
where the clouds have just opened up and that there was
a window of opportunity of just a few minutes for
anyone leaving on one particular flight that was leaving
I hopefully looked down at my plane ticket and I was
so consumed with joy that it was my flight that was leaving as
soon as possible.
I thanked God as I quickly rose up blissfully from my
seat feeling the loving embrace of God's grace that He had
opened the clouds and answered my heartfelt prayers...
"And tell him, Blessed is the one who does not lose
his faith in me." Luke 7:23
In my faith walk with God, I
have discovered just how important it is to give all the
glory to the Miracle Worker Jesus for the miracles that He
blesses us with and not give all the praise just to the miracle
The one thing that separates a parent from a
child is that a parent will be accountable for their choices and
they will ask themselves the question; what if? before they do
It is no different for God to expect a person of
faith to ask the same question to themselves. He wants us to
understand that our destiny is blessed by the choices that we make
What if I did not act on my faith to
call for a taxi cab to take me to the airport that
What if I would have given into the intense peer
pressure from everyone else that was saying that I would be foolish
and blind to go to the airport when all the flights were canceled
Would my faith and my praise to God be as strong
as it is today?
How many times has God faithfully blessed us by
opening the clouds in each one of our lives and we never showed
up to receive them?
"When I, the Messiah, return, how many will I
find who have faith?" Luke 18:8
"It should not surprise us

It is not
important at this time to explain why my heart was
heavy and why I had to get back home that day. I will explain
about the very dramatic reason that is in my book that
will be finished soon.
Years later as I
was reflecting back on that fateful day, I could only
recall about the times and event's while I was at the airport and
not much before or after I was there. I decided to cruise the
Internet hoping to see if I could find any more information. I was
delighted when I found one of the Weather Internet
sites that kept records of past weather conditions. It
posted that day as having the lowest visibility of the entire month
In fact it showed that there was more
than twice as less visibility as the average day for that month
due to the snow, rain and fog. I give all the glory to God
and praise Him that He doesn't listen to our weather forecast
of doubt but that He listens instead to our heartfelt prayers
