When I get invited to preach at other churches, I’m prayerful about where I’m supposed to go. In 2012, I really felt like God wanted me to go to Shreveport, Louisiana, to speak at a women’s event.
A few months after that, a girl that I’d made a strong connection with, there, came to St. Louis. I asked my son, Austin, to host her and her brother while they were in town.
After they left, Austin came to tell us about something God had revealed to him during his time of prayer. He said, “I’m going to marry that girl!”
Austin has NEVER said that about ANY girl, before. David told him, “That was God!”
Now, six years later, I have a beautiful daughter-in-LOVE and her name is Morgan! That “God prompting” wasn’t about ME at all. It was about Austin and Morgan, and their future together.
I think, sometimes, we UNDERESTIMATE the value of a supernatural prompt. God prompted ME to preach in a city that I’d never been to before; a city that wasn’t even on my list of “top cities to visit”.
But, we never know what God wants to do through divine timing, a divine meeting, or a divine place.
There’s a divine domino effect that happens with EVERY – SINGLE – DECISION that we make! Sometimes, it takes YEARS to see all the pieces fall into place.
That’s why, every decision that we make is WORTH praying about! Involve God in all those little decisions, because you have no idea the TREASURE He has buried inside!
Have you ever been prompted by God to do something that you really couldn’t explain? How did it turn out?
Wonderful and so true
I was prompted to move my family to Florida. I had no idea what God had in store for me and my family. We sold everything we had and moved with no house or jobs. We moved to Orlando, Florida but God had other plans for us. My wife saw a job listing and showed it to me. I called the number and went for an interview but before the interview was over they offered me a great job in West Palm Beach, Florida. I meet some great contact and a few great pastors that have helped me in my walk with God but the thing God had for me was still to come. I meet one contact at work that allowed me to start my own company and work as a consultant all over the country. We now live just south of Kansas City but I still follow the pastors that I meet in Florida. Pastors David and Nicole Crank, Pastors Todd and Julie Mullins and Pastor John Maxwell. The best part is the company I was able to start with God’s help has been going strong for 6 years and the future looks great! I have had to turndown work because I am too busy to do the work. God is Great!
