Clint

Resource Room of Heaven

(This is a transcript of Clint’s story.)

“Sometimes the kingdom is upside down and backwards, and it doesn’t make any sense that we don’t have a grid for it, but if we learn to trust him and let him fight our battles for us and not hustle through life, we end up doing a whole lot better than us trying to make our own little plan. So I think I’ll share the story that’s probably the most recent on my heart just because it’s raw and fresh. Yeah, it was a wild story. It felt like I was in the valley for a long time. But God kind of used it, you know, for his good. I think I’ll probably share that story.

So this, this happened oh, about six months ago. I am an architect by trade. And about four… three, or four years ago, I decided to leave architecture and get into the FinTech space, kind of the software space. And through a process of a whole lot of ideas that I had, I ended up developing a software, with a friend of mine. for retailers. We captured data, it was a whole bunch of stuff, and ended up actually canning the stuff that we had developed, and licensed product from the UK. We were kind of just trial-ing it at the moment, but then ended up getting some good investment and some investors behind us to back us. But, in that process of getting the investors behind us and to back us, I had subsequently had another idea that I had put forth to a separate, separate guy, he wasn’t part of what I was doing with this other business partner. And he introduced me to a big investor. Long story short, they kind of presented me with another opportunity. And in that process, I had a choice to leave the one business that I had worked on for three years with this other particular friend of mine, walk away, and go and do this other particular thing, which was involved in like the crypto space or Bitcoin and Ethereum. So yeah, I basically walked away from something I worked for for three years with this friend of mine and I deviated my shares to him into the company without selling them because it was the right thing to do. On the Wednesday, or sorry, on the Tuesday, I kind of signed off all my shares to this particular, this particular last business partner who was a friend of mine and on the Wednesday this new venture that I was a part of had only been there for like four or five months, and the guys pulled me in. And long story short they were like, “Listen we want you out of the business.” They weren’t impressed with the role that I was in. Initially I thought they were going to buy me out, which was that were going to buy all my shares. They basically said we want you out, we’re not giving you anything, and the comment was “you can take us to court.” So in two days I kind of had lost everything that I had worked for for the last four years, and then to make matters even worse, so there was the Tuesday, the Wednesday. On the Monday I was, you know, I was just like my brain was totally wrecked. I was just asking the Lord, “What’s going on?” and a friend of mine had asked me to do a worship gig for him at an event he was holding. And I was on my way to go get a guitar, which was, it was at a friend’s like, farm, and on the farm I ended up writing off my car into a tree because it was in the night. I just didn’t see the tree. So Tuesday I give all my shares away to a friend, Wednesday I get kicked out of the company I started five months ago, and on the Monday I crashed my car into a tree. Basically write it off.

So I had some choice Egyptian words with the Lord (heh heh heh). So I was very real with God and just was like, you know, “Seriously, Lord, like what the heck? Like, where are you?” In a week I basically lost everything. like you know, I’ve written off my car, which is a whole lot of money, and two businesses that I thought I would benefit from I have literally lost, you know, like three years and a whole lot of money and basically was stuck at square one again. And in that moment of feeling, you know, very frustrated, very angry, I thought that God had sympathy for my anger. But in that moment, he literally said to me like, “You know, son, you have…there’s only two roads that you can take here. You can take the road that you want to take where you’re angry. Right now you can take him to court, you can fight for what you want, you can you can be irritated with them etc. etc., or figuratively you can pick up your guitar and go worship. You can trust me and I will fight your battles for you. And I felt like God, you know, even in the moment he had sympathy for going like, you know, it’s your choice. You can choose which one you want. I won’t be angry with you on the one that you choose, I’m just telling you the outcome.

So I was like, Well, sheesh, Lord, seeing as you put it that way (heh heh heh), I guess I’m gonna begrudgingly choose the road that leads to life, and I feel like God was almost giving me a heads up to go, like, “Listen, I’m like, I’m a good Father. I’m telling you the outcome of whichever one you choose, but I’m not angry with you for the choice that you make, because I understand the anger that you’re going through right now, and (understand that you were almost robbed four minutes) right to be angry, but just know that this one leads to death and the other one leads to life to life. I thought, “Okay God, I trust you. I’ll figuratively pick up my guitar, worship, and I’ll let you fight my battles for me.”

Two days later, God wakes me up in the middle of the night and just says to me, “I want you to serve this particular individual.” Like, he’s a very wealthy business guy, a friend of mine, and literally God was like, I want you to serve them–no strings attached. Don’t expect, like, any payment or anything from them.” So I’m like, “Okay cool, God.”

So I phone him up the next day. I’m like, “Hey buddy, this is what’s happened, this is what I feel.” And he’s like, “Great, just come in. Just come and hang out. I’ve got a new office. bring your guitar, we’ll worship.” He is a very prophetic guy. So two days later I go to his office and I walk into his office and as I walk in and he says to me, “Hey, Clint, I’ve got a gift for you.” Now, this guy’s a wealthy guy and he’s a very good gifts giver. I’ve seen him give houses away, cars away, like he, you know, so I get all excited. I’m like, “Oh! Okay. God’s about to like, He’s about to repay me something here. And he pulls out this little rusty key out of his pocket. And he says, “I found this key this morning and I thought that God said to me this is the key to the resource room, and you can have whatever you want.”

I was very real with with God and just was like, you know, “Seriously, Lord like, what the heck, like where are you? Like, in a week I’ve basically lost everything.”

In the back of my mind I was like, “Are you joking? Like seriously, a little stupid rusty key. And a joke in front of him…No faith No, nothing they can just be raw and honest. I took the key and I kind of said okay, God, I take my car. And I pulled it down from the resource room, like, just as a joke. Now just to backtrack, when I was in this other business I was trying to buy this Land Rover from a friend of mine. It was an expensive Land Rover, but obviously all this stuff had happened to me and I was like, well listen, I can’t use funds to buy the car. I’m gonna have to live on some of this so this is kind of out of the picture.

So yeah, so I’ll pull the car from the resource room and I didn’t even think about it. It was like okay, well whatever–it’s a stupid little gift, little rusty key, like, what’s that going to do? Two days later, I meet this guy, he’s not even involved in this whole story and I’m chatting to him and we’re having coffee and he’s like, he’s like, “Man, I’ve got a gift for you. Can you come to my car and fetch it?” And honestly I’m thinking, oh this guy is going to give me another key or he’s going to give me a book or you know a bottle of wine.

I’m like, yeah okay, whatever, just give me your gift, you know. So I walked down with him after the coffee and he starts, he starts to cry. And he says, “I’ve never done this before.” And he hands me these keys and I siliilly go, like “You want me to get it out of your car?” And he starts to laugh. He’s like, “No, no, I’m giving you this car.” And I look and I hadn’t seen it yet, but it’s the exact car that I was trying to buy from another friend three weeks ago. (he moved to me) It’s the exact Land Rover that it’s parked in. I’m not, i’m shocked, I’m startled, and I’m like, “How did you know I wanted this car?” He’s like, “No, I didn’t know you wanted this car. But God woke me up in middle of the night two weeks ago and told me to buy this car for you from this particular individual.” Now I’m crying and rocked. I’m like, sheesh Lord. I’m blown away.

And you know, I get on the freeway about 10 minutes later, and God’s just like–I’m just overwhelmed by His love and His presence, you know, and these are just the signs that make us wonder, you know, and this car in front of me on the freeway–I can’t make this stuff up–this car in front of me on the freeway and its license plate is Psalm 84 verse 11. So now I’m like, I know, Godspeed to you so go and look up Psalm 84 verse 11 word for word it says this, it says: “no good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.” And I like in a moment, I just get overwhelmed by God’s love, going like, almost God saying, “I’ll fight your battles for you. You made the right choice and this car was just a small little gift as his example of that you made the right choice, but also he’s a good Father who deeply loves us and he knows the details of our lives. Like this is absolutely no coincidence that the very car pulled down as a joke with no faith from the resource room, God gave me. He says that to me and instantly says to me also, “Don’t ever, don’t ever think that the resource room in heaven isn’t real.” And I’m like, sheesh!” Again I can’t make this stuff up. I get to this friend’s office. This guy who I’m serving who, who’s given me the key, I get in the office, I’m all excited. I start telling him the testimony. He’s overwhelmed and he says, “Sheeh, that’s crazy! Here is what, what you didn’t know is, and I was going to tell you when you came to the office, is that I just bought you a ticket to America!”

So this is on the Wednesday, and he’s like, “You’re coming with me on Friday.” He was coming here to Dallas to Texas to visit a friend from Upper Room. He’s like, “You’re coming with me on Friday and then I’m going to send you to Bethel, like all expenses paid, you know, because I have really good friends at Bethel that I wanted to see them for a long time.”

I’m like, I’m, you know, in one day get given a car and I’m given a ticket to America. Fast track, I leave on the Friday to go to the states then I come here for six or seven days and have an amazing time, go to my friend’s house in Bethel so I’m staying with them. And I’m in his kitchen on the second day washing dishes, and again I can’t make this stuff up. These are like supernatural stories that … I’m washing the dishes and I look to the left and they’ve got a Bible mantle piece. It’s their favorite scripture highlighted in pink color, word for word Psalm 84 verse 11 “no good thing will I withhold from those who walk uprightly.” I’m just like, “Sheesh, Lord, are you joking?”

So that’s my encouraging story, and I hope it encourages people now.
