After a few months, a friend recommended someone. I called the telephone number and the person answered the telephone, said nothing, and then hung up.
I didn't call back.
I understand people not wanting to answer an unknown number, but if they had just let the call go to voicemail then I would have left them a message saying who I was,who it was that gave me their telephone number and that they came highly recommended.
But they didn't.
People cry out to God everyday about all the bills that they have and the money that they don't have, but at the same time they'll block a blessing that God is trying to send them. The devil has them terrified to answer the telephone and afraid to go to the mailbox.
Now, I understand that sometimes it's the devil blocking your blessing (Daniel 10:1-13), but sometimes it's just you.
Most people are familiar with the story of the drowning man.
