Love stories like this when God’s Story comes alive!

It strikes me as almost comical sometimes the way the Lord seems to bring a story (His Word) into play when a miracle is needed!
We had an instance of this last week in Costa. There we were, minding our own business as a group preparing the story of the fiery snakes in Numbers 21 (4-9).
One of the tribal guys in our gathering got a phone call. His dad had been bitten by a poisonous snake and the guy was immediately and understandably distressed, fearing for his dad’s life.
The moment he told me what had happened, in tears, it dawned on me what story we were looking at … how God brought life and health to those bitten by snakes!
