Have you ever had something come through at just the right time to meet a specific need?

I know we have. . .

I remember once when our bookkeeper made a mistake which resulted in our owing $14,000 in taxes. . .which we discovered a few days before it had to be paid.  And frankly, at the time we didn’t have that amount of cash readily available.

We prayed and moved on . . . believing God would provide.

I was speaking that next Sunday at a church in southern California. . .it was an incredible service.

Can you imagine my surprise when the Pastor handed me a check for $16,000 for preaching a one-hour Sunday morning service?

Are you at a turning point in your life?

Do you need to change from living in lack to walking in abundance?

Do you need to experience the healing touch of Jehovah Rapha?

Do you need to see your long-lost family members being born-again and proclaiming Jesus as the Lord of their lives?

Are you ready to receive your turning point?

1 Thessalonians 1:9 in The Living Bible says:

“For they keep telling us about the wonderful welcome you gave us, and how you turned away from your idols to God so that now the living and true God only is your Master.”

People who experience turning points. . .generally do so because of a life-changing circumstance (loss of a job, sickness etc.) or a catastrophic event that happens around them.  Unfortunately, it normally takes adversity for us to have an ear to hear God about turning our lives around.

Reaching a turning point in our lives. . .normally involves three things.

A man who made his yearly visit to the church began to get worried as the offering plate began to circulate through the room. He fidgeted and fumbled and finally took a dollar bill out of his pocket.

Just before the offering plate passed by he was tapped on the shoulder by the man behind him. The man leaned forward and handed him a $20 bill.

Figuring it was the custom of the church he happily threw in the $20 bill. He turned and thanked the man for such a kind gesture.

The man behind replied, “You are so welcome, it fell out of your pocket!”

I love that story.

If you are ever tempted to hold back your giving. . .remember the promises that God gives to those who faithfully and cheerfully give.

Never let your circumstances define your destiny.  Rather create the circumstances that will assure your destiny.
