My Presence Has Gone Before You
May 15, 2010

 

My Presence has gone before you and prepared the way

 Acts 15:18   Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world. 

 

Some years ago my brother  Dave and I were discussing moving from Connecticut to Florida to start a business. I was ready to “do it”  but Dave was reluctant to leave (he probably had more sense than I did). He told me he was sitting in a rocking chair and had just been reading the scriptures and was now meditating on the future, what lay before him, when God spoke to him saying, “My Presence has gone before you and prepared the way”. On that word, we moved to Florida, started the business, and are still in business today 27 years later.

The way that God has moved for us and taken care of us through the years would take pages to write. We found indeed, that God’s presence went before us and prepared the way.  It’s hard to understand, but God created the entity called “time” and has already placed everything in it that will ever be.  Acts 15:18 tells us:  Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Every page that you turn, each new chapter in your life, each new day that you enter, the Presence of God has already been there and made provision for you. Every difficulty that you face, every troubling circumstance, God is fully aware of it, and has already made a way around or through it, for you.

 

A Doctor who operated a medical clinic for poor people in New York City in the early 1900’s and also held prayer meetings several evenings a week, told the following story. There was a lawyer who attended the prayer meetings who from time to time would give him sums of money telling him to place it, where it was needed most.  It seemed that God always had a special purpose for each gift.  One day the lawyer gave him a check for 12 dollars and 50 cents, telling him to “place it where it was needed most”. The doctor put it in a drawer not sure what God intended for it and there it sat.  He said after several weeks and no instructions, he thought maybe he had lost touch with that “still small voice”.

 

 

One evening however, just before prayer meeting as he opened the drawer the word came “take it out”. That evening he looked across the people to see if there was possibly a foreign missionary present as different times gifts had gone to them, but tonight there was a lady there, who with her husband operated the John 3:16 mission for the homeless and he felt the gift was to go to her.  After the service he approached her and asked if there were any special needs that they might have at their mission. She replied, “Brother, our mission is a work of faith and our needs are only brought before the Lord”.  He handed her the check however and said “I feel this is to go to you for the mission work”.  She then told him the following story.  The nights had been bitter cold and they had run out of coal and had no money to purchase more.  If they were not able to obtain more, for the first time since they started the mission, they would have to shut the doors. Just before she had come to prayer meeting that evening she and her husband had gotten on their knees and made their plea before their God, and now, here was the answer. The price of a ton of coal delivered down the chute – 12 dollars and 50 cents. Simply chance? Or is there ONE who declares “before they call I will answer and while they are yet speaking I will hear."
