Once on a beautiful sunny sommer day I walked through the center of Wiesbaden. Many people where there going shopping or just enjoying the weather. I was thinking about God and that this is all just fiction, an idea to console oneself. Who is this God and where? I thought it is all absurd. The only force that controls my life is me. I can change something, I can control and direct my life. How can there be another power? No way…
I wanted to eat something so I walked to the next fast food restaurant. At that time I didn’t care about what I put into my body. Today I mostly eat vegetarian food. Anyway, a few meters before the door I suddenly knew that now something important will be shown to me. I knew that it will be impossible for me to get food in this restaurant, that no matter where I am and what the circumstances are God has all in his hands. It was not just a thought it was a total sureness that this will be shown to me now. I thought the restaurant is full of food, there are enough employees and not so many customers. So how on earth will God prevent me from getting my burgers?! Impossible.
I entered the restaurant. There were 3 cash points serving customers. In my queue 2 people were standing in front of me. So again, impossible to not get any food!
What then happened was just unbelievable. The people in my queue before me where served then it was my turn. The waitress immediately left the cash point at the moment I wanted to order. Well can happen… no problem. I went to the next queue on the right side. When it was my turn it happened again! This time it was a waiter. He just left. He disappeared in the back of the kitchen leaving the cash point active not returning any more. Now I started to get nervous.
There were no customers left any more. I was the only customer now! So I directly approached the next cash point but the waiter also just run away. I was standing alone in front of the three cash points, employees running back and forth doing all kinds of things but no one recognizing me. It was as if they could not see me at all. Standing there stunned, I couldn’t believe it. But in this moment I knew deeply within myself that what ever I do I won’t get any food here. It was a spiritual demonstration. I should learn that God has all in his hands although we are not aware of it. I smiled and thanked for this lesson.
