God working behind the scenes

By Michael Tidwell

Sunday, we were blessed with  wonderful services in Dayton, Ohio.   After ministering two services, we drove home  and arrived in TN around midnight.   My voice is still a little hoarse from preaching.   This morning,  I ran into  a gentleman that I  have been slowly dropping  gospel seeds in to his life, at every opportunity that I get.  Today, I received another opportunity. The man noticed  that my voice was hoarse and asked was I sick.     I shared with him that I am a minister and I preached  this past weekend.   The conversation moved on to another subject.   Could part of the reason why  God allowed the services this past Sunday, was so that my voice would become hoarse, which would prompt a question, that would allow me to drop a seed? Let’s never underestimate how God work’s.  He has a plan that is much greater than what we can fathom.  God has a way of orchestrating events to take place in our life to obtain the results that He desires.  A brother once shared with us that  after a loved one had passed away, he found copies of Eagle’s View in her home.  Finding those copies of Eagle’s View, was instrumental in him giving his life to Christ. We never know what God is doing behind the scenes.   When you feel discouraged because you are not seeing the results that you desire, just remember that God is  using you for results that He desires.  For God makes all things beautiful in His time.   

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts”.  –  Isaiah 55: 8-9 

Not only should  we do what God has called us to do but seek the results that God seeks.  – mt

Michael and his wife Crista,  are blessed to have three beautiful  children (Noah, Gracie, Luke).  They  live in the middle TN area and  attend Eagle Christian church.   He counts  it a honor to be involved with Eagle’s View, BYC  and serving as a evangelist.   They  enjoy being outdoors, traveling and above all serving the Lord.

    Stopped by for a few minutes to visit after our e-mail conversation yesterday. These few words give me a lot of courage to go forward today. In just 1 1/2 hour I am to meet with a group of men for coffee. One of these men is but 23 years of age. He has a lot of health issues, and we are praying for his healing, while at the same time, we are asking the Lord to reveal Himself to this young man as more than the Healer, but also the Captian, and Liberator of his soul. Thank you for some good reading. May God continue to bless you, and all of yours.
