Interruptions May Be Divine Appointments In Disguise

Interruptions May Be Divine Appointments In Disguise

“…Then he called out, Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me…Jesus said to him, ‘Have back your site; your faith has healed you.’ He recovered his sight instantly and followed Jesus, praising God. And all the people gave praise to God for what they had seen.”   Luke 18: 38, 42-43 {REB}

I was rushing to a meeting during the winter in Wisconsin, a few years ago. I spotted a woman walking down a side street wearing only a robe and no shoes. My first impulse was to turn around and take her where she needed to go. Then the thought that I would be late for my meeting crossed my mind. I continued driving for two blocks but felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to turn around.

I went back, found the female, and asked if she needed a ride.

She hopped in my vehicle, told me she had gotten into a fight and had gotten locked out of her apartment. She was out in the cold attempting to get away before the assaulters returned. I transported her to a safe haven and headed to my meeting.

This is a good example of an interruption being a divine appointment. I was able to witness to her and encourage her on the drive.

It was an interruption for Jesus when the blind beggar called out and continued to shout until Jesus responded. But it was a divine intervention for the beggar.

Be sensitive to your ‘Divine Appointments.”

  1. Your post resonated with my thoughts today as I finish up my coming post. Let us pray to always be sensitive to the Holy Spirit when these divine appointments call. This is obedience I think.
