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
