In an effort to bring in more money into the household, my husband started up a business. Him and his partners did their research, and knew that there was a great need for the product that they had created. So they were quite confused when, after almost two years, they had not even had one customer. They met and discussed closing the business.
That night, my youngest was woken up in the middle of the night by a very bright light. It shined out from the corner of his room. It waited, and when my son refused to get up, it shined brighter. (He was very tired.) Finally my son realized that it wouldn’t go away and let him sleep, till he got up and gave it some attention.
When he arose, the light dimmed, and he could see an angel of the Lord standing before him.
The angel told him, that the reason his father’s business had no customers, is that there was a pagan man praying to his god to bless this company (he was a friend of one of the partners,) and this man’s prayers were actually a curse upon the company. The angel told him he was to tell us to bind up this man’s prayers, and break their bonds and cords, and claim that they are as nothing.
The angel then said that the company could grow and be a help to us and one day even help out the body of Christ, if we prayed for it. The angel said it needed the prayers of his mother, to help it succeed. (At the time, my husband was doing this on his own, and hadn’t really talked to me about it.) The angel further said that when someone would ask about why the company was so successful, we were to say it was because of Jesus.
My husband was amazed at the message, for he had not told his youngest anything about the company’s problem.
We talked about it and came to an agreement. Then we bound up this man’s prayers in the name of Jesus.
Three days later they got their first customer!
Today, the company is growing, and we give all credit for its success to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Hanukkah is a time to remember the miracles on one’s life. This was one of them.
May you be blessed with miracles in your journey with the Lord,
