Summary: I asked God for finished lumber, and God gave me an acorn? I can’t wait God? I need the lumber NOW! GOD SAYS: I have a divine appointment set for you!
GOD GAVE ME AN ACORN?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
I ask God for 2 x 6’s, and HE GAVE ME AN ACORN AND SAID, PLANT IT AND LEARN TO TRUST ME ...
I said I don’t want to wait that long?
I. HAVE YOU EVER DREADED AN APPOINTMENT?
To assign, fix, set, EQUIP, delegate.
An arrangement of a meeting at a certain time and place.
ELEVATION TO A NEW STATION!
To provide with a full set of needed things.
B. In 1990 I had a fall and detached the retina in my eyes. We have rode a roller coaster since that time. There have been some very low times, there have
been some serious internal visual times. I have had 9 eye surgeries on one eye,
7 on the other. I have new Bosch-Lomb lenses, a sclare buckle and other things.
When a brilliant Jewish doctor finished with my first surgery, I had patches over my eyes and he said: IT IS IN GOD’S HANDS NOW!
As I sat in a dark room, I heard his words echo time and time again...
IT IS IN GOD’S HANDS NOW.
I never questioned God, but I have questioned my self many times, there has been many days that I have EVALUTED myself and WISHED I had approached
eternal things, unseen things with a greater fervent attitude.
In December I had an appointment with the "eye disease" doctor. His nurse called me to tell me that the doctor was going to be gone that day, that
I had to reschedule the appointment. Well, I have been busy and I have forgotten and I have not rescheduled my tests and appointment with him.
I hate to think of when I go, he will tell me off!
C. Last time I missed him, when I went he said: DO YOU WANT TO BE BLIND?
YOU KNOW YOU ARE A BLINDNESS CANDIDATE!
I had no good answer, I said: Of, course you know I want to be blind?
As that was the only answer I could think?
I was serious? I just missed the appointment.
Now, several years later I find myself HAVING MISSED THE APPOINTMENT
and dreading the rebuke I shall face.
D. Yes, IT IS IN GOD’S HANDS, BUT I HAVE A DUTY TO CARRY OUT THE CARE OF MY EYES AS WELL AS SEEK GOD’S TOUCH!
II. THERE ARE A FEW APPOINTMENTS BEFORE ME THAT I TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY! WE MAY TAKE THE THOUGHT OF DEATH AND JUDGMENT LIGHTLY, BUT THERE WILL A DAY WHEN THE JOKING SHALL CEASE.
A. The last time I came out of the Doctor’s office, I told the nurse, the Doctor had really bad news. The nurse just looked at me with surprise and said, he didn’t tell me?
I said: YES, HE TOLD ME I WAS GOING TO LIVE!
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
B. If you had read my work much you have heard me say what I would do if I were a Medical Doctor.
Every new patient that stood before me, I would get real serious, and say:
OH NO YOU HAVE A TERMINAL DISEASE AND YOU ARE DYING!
Then I would say: I am just joking, BUT YOU NEED TO TAKE LIFE MORE SERIOUS!
C. Some 5 years ago, I called a strong young man to the altar. He loved playing basketball and watching football. He had a young daughter, a good job, and a
beautiful wife. He had a new car, a new truck, a new speed boat and many of life’s toys. I said: Danny, play a pretend game with the preacher? He agreed.
