Isaiah 65:24 - The Grand Choreographer.
Isaiah 65:24 (NKJV) It shall come to pass
That before they call, I will answer; And while
they are still speaking, I will hear.
My friend, Pastor Randy, got a phone call
one morning from a lady who sounded pretty
distraught. She asked if he would pray for her, so they
set up an appointment at Randys church. Her
story was indeed heart-rending. She had been
studying two years to become a nurse. But when she
took the final exam to receive her license, she
didnt pass. She was crushed.
But the other part of her story was even
worse. She had recently learned the devastating
news that her husband had been unfaithful to
their marriage vows.
Her anguish spoke to Randys heart and
he prayed earnestly for her. For courage. For
hope. For friends who would come alongside her.
That God would give her the gift of forgiveness.
That the Holy Spirit would fulfill His promise
and be her Comforter.
In a few days she called again. She had
found courage from Pastor Randys prayers and
she wondered if they could meet again, but this
time could he bring someone else with him to join
them. He promised to try.
Providentially, the pastor was conducting
a series of prayer classes in his church and
he asked the group if any of them could
accompany him the next morning. Eight of the class
members volunteered. He decided to take them all.
After the rest of the class had left the
seminar Pastor Randy explained briefly about the
situation so they could pray intelligently for this
very troubled lady.
After he described some of the details,
one of the volunteers timidly raised her hand
and said, Pastor, about two years ago I
learned that my husband was having an on-going
affair with his secretary. I thought Id die. But
Id be willing to share with this lady how the
grace of God got me through. I know our situations
are different but maybe my healing can encourage
her. Pastor Randy thought to himself, Isnt
it amazing how God brought this lady to our
group today to bless someone whose story we
didnt even know yet.
A second lady from the group raised her
hand and said, Pastor, Im a member of the
State Board of Licensing for nurses. I dont
know what questions will be on her exam when she
re-takes it of course, but I do know some things that
will help her prepare. And Ill be glad to
coach her through her prep timeI am confident I
can help her get ready for the exam so she can
pass next time. And she did. And she did.
As Randy told that story I was struck
again with Gods care " and His guidance.
About how He had just the right people in the
right place at the right time. I think they call
that choreography. God has a different
explanation: Before they call I will answer.
Weve read that promise before, havent we? By
