Word Of The Day -
March 16, 2024


[89] Forever, O LORD, your word
is firmly fixed in the heavens.
[90] Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
[91] By your appointment they stand this day,
for all things are your servants.
(Psalm 119:89-91, ESV)

By your decree everything stands at attention,
for all that you have made serves you.
(Psalm 119:91, TPT)

I was always amazed when people would tell me that they had ‘divine appointments’. I thought, “What’s a divine appointment, anyway?” I didn’t think I was proud, or judging the people who said it, or judging God for doing what they said He was doing. At least, I didn’t think so, anyway.

Since I was very young, I always felt God close to me. I felt like I could talk to Him and He would talk to me. In my dreams, God would tell me something that was really important for me to know. I sat down and looked out the window, and God would give me a poem to write about the beauty of His nature.

When I had hard times, I would ask God to help me. And I wasn’t surprised when He did. I just kept going back to this thought of a ‘divine appointment’. I still did not know what it meant.

As usual, the Lord was very gracious to me. He let me wander off in my personal thoughts about ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’. And then He would bring me back to Himself.

In the last few years, I’ve started to rethink most of what I thought I knew about God, and what He wanted me to do in His kingdom. Things weren’t falling in line like they used to. I now have to hold on tightly to God‘s hand, so that I feel His presence with me every day.

Recently, I got to a point where I thought, “I have no idea what to do next, but I still trust my Lord.” God reminded me that even though I don’t know what a ‘divine appointment’ is, He still does it? I found the scripture that I listed above.

Everything stands at God’s attention. I asked Him what this means. Of course, God is the creator of the universe, and He does a lot of stuff to keep things going.

I think God said to me, “You need to be watching what I’m doing, so that you will appreciate how much my goodness is really running after you.”

I still don’t know what God wants me to be doing in this season of my life, but I’m starting to become OK with that. Each and every day, I now see that God sets up things for me. He still asks me to do things, and I’m supposed to follow His lead. I still have a free will, but seeing how easily it is to follow along God‘s path of divine appointments is allowing me to continue on.
