A few years ago a worship leader at our church shared this story one Sunday morning. He was preparing a Powerpoint presentation, when he discovered that the music clip would not work. He particularly wanted to use this piece of music because it fitted so well with the theme of the presentation. He spent several lunchtimes plus some hours at home trying to get it to work—without success.

By then he was feeling rather tense and frustrated so his wife suggested they pray. She was only three or four words into the prayer when he felt God say to him, “The file name is too long.” It was a bit of a surprise; we don’t expect God to be so technologically minded. The worship leader shortened the file name, and the music clip worked.

God is so there for us, but he waits until we ask.
