Do you believe in divine appointments?
A divine appointment is a special meeting, an unforeseen connection, a significant opportunity that God sets up in your day through His providential guidance. It is a situation when and where the Lord gives you a unique moment to share His love with others or be a blessing to someone. It is God breaking into your world to use you, encourage you or give you a key relationship link for the future.
The psalmist described his belief in “God appointments:”
“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” –– Psalm 37:23 (NLT)
When we surrender our lives and our days to God, He actively involves Himself with us. According to Scripture, He purposely and purposefully directs our steps. He engages Himself in the details of our lives, including many of the people we meet and opportunities we encounter. He appoints a daily pathway for us, and guides us on it. Everyday becomes an exciting adventure as we anticipate God showing up in our world!
God has divine appointments for you today. Ask Him to make you sensitive to these providential moments in your life. Pray for them, look for them, listen for them, and make the most of them!
