Your Divine Appointment
What divine appointment does God have for you this next year?
As you think about your days, do you realize God has a magnificent plan for your life? His plan is an intricate design filled with divine appointments set up by Him. These divine appointments are custom-designed for you to experience as you run your race and live according to His will.
How can you experience those amazing divine appointments from the Lord? I believe one of the great secrets is giving God full control of your life, surrendering yourself to Him — your time, talents, and treasure.
Paul says it this way —
Time, Talents, and Treasure
Realize that your life is an investment of time, talent, and treasure in the things that last forever. Where will you invest your life? Paul says, “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win” (1 Corinthians 9:24).
Oh friends, I so want us all to run in such a way that we will win. I want you to experience that magnificent divine appointment God has for you, etched in time, that is a living out of His will, and brings eternal glory to Him.
The words of Dr. Bill Bright, Founder of Campus Crusade for Christ International, have always meant so much to me —
Oh how I pray that you will give your time, talents, and treasure to God for His glory and, as a result, experience His divine appointments — His will for your life in abundance where literally rivers of living water flow from within (John 7:37-39).
So where does God want you to spend your time, talents, and treasure this next year?
Ask Him for wisdom and guidance. He has given you gifts and talents for His glory — how will you use these gifts now and in the future? And how about the treasure He has entrusted to you? Will you invest it on those things that last forever? I encourage you to give first to your local church, the community of believers where you worship. And then, God has raised up ministries like Quiet Time Ministries, to take the gospel to the world, help others in quiet time in His Word and in prayer, and to grow in their relationship with the Lord. Quiet Time Ministries relies on your prayers and financial gifts to bring countless projects to life. I pray that you will partner with Quiet Time Ministries in your year-end giving.
And so, dear friends, may you experience God’s divine appointments as you run your race well, giving your time, talents, and treasure to the Lord, and glorifying Him every step of the way.
God bless you this Christmas!
♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
