Divinely Appointed Visits

This has been a busy month or two, but this past two weeks have had just about every hour accounted for. Still we were very privileged to visit around 300 homes and firms to give them a daily reading for 2010. More than 95% of the people reading these calendars are not Christians and yet they are willing to read about God and learn more of their need, therefore we are thrilled to be the vessels to distribute the Word.

It has been a great experience as most folks have questions and items for discussion. They ask for prayer for their problems and in general are very open and warm towards us. We look forward through the year to meeting up with many of these people and seeing what they have discovered through the readings.

On one occasion, David drove past the home of a believer and had the urge to go in and let them know we were leaving this week. Now, as time was short and the folks were not on the calendar list he decided against calling as he had never called uninvited before. However, as he later in the day past the house again he had the same feeling and decided he should call in case there was a good reason for the “urge.”

The lady who opened the door was surprised to see him but invited him in. No sooner was he there than 6 other ladies arrived and the said lady”s daughter. It turned out it was a school reunion for this mid sixty year old lady and David had about an hour to explain the Gospel to each one of them. They gladly accepted a Gospel calendar to read more for themselves and begged him to come to the next reunion and explain more.

Luke 12:6-7, “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Not only that, but as David was saying he had had no idea why the Lord was urging him to call, the lady”s daughter said, “I know, because I need your help.” This girl had been praying about a specific thing and here God provided someone to help her in her dilemma. They had another long talk on the subject and David was able to pray for her and leave.

Divine appointment? Certainly not coincidence!

We need to be ready to listen to His voice, as he sometimes leads us in different directions from we think to meet the need of another. If we do listen and follow His leading, we are generally, the most blessed to see that He is willing to use us and speak so definitely. The person we go to is encouraged and blessed to see their pleas for help being answered and assured that He has it all under control and it is an amazing witness to the unbeliever who is watching. These ladies were astounded at how God is interested in each one of us. They won”t forget that graphic lesson for a good while!

Psalm 145:18-19, “The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them”

We got the work finished in spite of time given to “divine appointments”, and as we set off for our travels, please excuse the lack of contact and blogs as internet will be sparse, but I will return as soon as possible to this page
