Divine appointments. I see them every day. As a pastor, I see opportunities for ministry each and every day. I haven’t always seen them. I will never forget church members (a mother and her daughters) watching me drive passed them as they were broken down on the side of the road (I missed that one). Since then I have asked God to help me keep my “ministry radar” alert. There are many things that I can mess up and things will be just fine, but listening to the voice of God is not one of them. I don’t want to miss God’s voice. Souls are in the balance. When I sense the prompting of God’s Holy Spirit, it’s important to listen to His guidance. I am thankful for the many “divine appointments” that I have encountered just this year. I wish I could share them with everyone, but I want to respect the privacy of others. These appointments strengthen my faith incredibly. Instead, I simply pray that you too can see the activity of God around you.
