Divine Appointments today?

September 22nd

Scripture: “Now an Angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south …”

Acts 8:26

Divine Appointment

Now this may seem to be a strange topic “Divine Appointment” when it comes to discussing horses – but maybe not. Lets see what we can do.

I sincerely believe that my time on horseback has resulted in some Divine Appointments. First, a Divine Appointment is a “planned meeting” by God where he wants you to take a specific action, my definition. I have been trail riding with Amos when discussions of the scripture and/or Christian living have been discussed with other riders. This may sound like a strange time to have these kinds of discussions, but I don’t think so. These were appointments for me, given by God.

You and I need to walk through our day asking God to show us any Divine Appointments He may have for us. We do not want to miss them.

By the way, if you read the complete story above, Acts 8:26 – 39, the man from Ethiopia was riding in a chariot. I suspect that horses were pulling that chariot – in fact I envision a team of two beautiful black Arabian horses. Oh, I wish that could have been my appointment!

Prayer Thought: Jesus, any special plans for me today? Maybe I will go for a horseback ride – tomorrow, first full day of fall.

Exactly! God always puts people in my path while I'm out and about. And even at home... Some of my favorite praise and worship sessions have been at grocery stores. ;o)

As much as people try to limit God, He is not limited to our expectations! That always amazes me!

Very good Michele! We just need to stay attentive so we do not miss any appointments!

I spend a lot of time outdoors, but never on a horse. The beautiful countryside is a great place to communion with the source of your faith.

I try to keep an appointment with mine everyday at the park or the beach.

Life's best moments are through Divine Appointment. It is there in that moment that lives can be touched and changed. Thanks for such a beautiful post.

Ed, love those appointments at the beach! Keep your eyes focused on the "right" things though! LOL

Edwina - staying focused on Christ will make that happen!!

You never know where or how God will give you that appointment. Doctor's offices, standing in line somewhere. Just gotta be paying attention. Horse back would be an awesome way!
