In awe my jaw drops serendipitously as my Pastor opens today’s message by stating, “Lately, I keep seeing the number 133.” This prompting leads Pastor Nick to teach about Psalm 133 from the Old Testament of God’s written Word.
I nearly fall off my chair. 133 is a number that is near and dear to my heart in a way that no words can describe but I will attempt such measure in a future writing when the time is right. I have only shared this “magic” number with a handful of people for it is too personal to write about publicly, but today I am compelled to share what I will call my lucky number (133) for simplicity sake.
As Pastor Nick says 133, I instinctively shout out from the last row in church. “That’s my number,” and he responds, Tim knows what I mean with numbers representing things.
I do know what he means. I totally get it. God speaks to us in a way that we get it. He speaks our language and He speaks to our heart. He speaks to us in a language we will understand. Sometimes it is a puzzle and a mystery. It makes for great conversation.
133 appears in my life every single day without fail as He confirms the word UNITY to me. The Bible says in Psalm 133, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.”
After I shout out “That’s my number”, the young and brand-new first time Dad sitting in front of me turns around with a proud smile only a new Dad can have and whispers, “Abigail was born at 1:33.”
Sometimes God whispers in our ear and sometimes He has to knock a more dense person over the head with a message such as myself. It’s all good, I will take it anyway He gives it.
As I write this story, I open up the dashboard of my blog to begin writing this message and wouldn’t you know it, 133 is on top of the screen glaring in blue letters. Apparently I have published 133 times at http://www.justaguyonajourney.com
Allow me to ask you, does God speak to you in numbers? Care to share? Post a comment or email me. For me, 133 is the form of a modern day angel. May God release His angels and messages whole-heartedly upon you. Just ask Him, see what happens and keep your ears and eyes open. I love you.
