Gods Divine Timing

In God’s Divine Timing

Ecclesiastes 3:1
“There is an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth.”

I want to tell you a story about what happened yesterday. After our awesome Church service, I found out that we were going to have to stay a little longer for something my wife had to take care of. Well, let’s just say I was not the most enthused about it. I mean come on; I wanted to take a nap while watching some football.

So it came to about an hour and a half after service and everyone was gone and as I am locking up the door to the church to go home. A gentleman walks up to me and says, “How do I become a member of the church?” I gave him the steps we take to become a member, and then the Holy Spirit starts working on me and says, there is something else there. So I ask him, “Are you just wanting info to join our church or is there something else?” He says, “I just want to get right with God, I have a lot of problems and need a relationship, is it too late?” Of course I say no and ask if I can pray for him and in prayer I asked him if he wanted to receive Christ as his Lord and Savior. He said yes, so I had him repeat after me the salvation prayer and when we were done, I looked up at him and tears were rolling down his face and I realized he was being completely genuine. I gave him a Bible, explained to him where to start reading, about true repentance, and we exchanged numbers and I drove to take him home where he was living in the Economy Inn. We said our good bys and said we would talk again.

Talk about divine timing, WOW, I had to ask my wife several times, “was that real, did that really happen.” Any other day at the church at that time the doors would have been closed and everyone gone, but God placed us there at that exact time to be available for one of God’s divine moments.

I love divine appointments. They have such a way of humbling you.
