LET ME CHECK MY SCHEDULE...

"God also bearing them witness, with signs..." (Hebrews 2:4)

 

A couple days back we talked about little coincidences, God-Winks, as one author calls them. The interesting thing about coincidences is the more you pray the more they happen...hmm. I could tell a thousand stories about scheduling meetings. I know some evangelists are booked ahead for ten years but that's not my situation. Sometimes I'm sitting high and dry (pardon the hint, pastors). Anyway, God always comes through. I was a little aggravated last February. The phone wasn't ringing. No one seemed interested. I flipped on the tube and Jesse Duplantis kind of bragged that he never had to call anyone, he just commanded the phone to ring and someone would always call and schedule him to speak. I had been praying for open doors. "Why not?" I thought. "If God loves Jesse He also loves Kris". "In the name of Jesus, phone, I command you to ring!" Guess what? Nothing happened. How foolish to think that it would. I knelt back down for about five minutes of prayer, then, ring-a-ling. Under my breath I mumbled, "Probably for Deb". "Hey Kris, the speaker from Ohio I had scheduled for next Sunday just called and felt he needed to cancel. Just thought of you, could you come up next Sunday?" I answered, "Hmm, let me check my schedule. Why, brother, I just happen to have Sunday open". We had ten straight nights of great meetings and got to network with several other Metro-pastors in the process. God controls the calendar. Now, the phone may ring right when Jesse commands it to, but for me, I had to wait five minutes, so the guy in Ohio could call Kansas City then the K.C. pastor could look up my phone number and make my connection. Just a coincidence; I know.

 

A couple months later a big church in Denver had to cancel. I'm left high and dry again, looked over at the phone and voiced a little "please". An India born pastor called wondering if I might have next Sunday open for a conference in Tulsa. "Let me check my schedule. Ooh, I just happen to have that open..." As a result of that meeting conference hosts have called me to preach for India church conferences in OK City and Dallas and later Orlando. Just a coincidence that the other church should cancel, I know.

 

Testimonies take so much space to write but let me give you a third story. When I decided to go on a mission trip to Jordan last fall it dawned on me that I had no services after my return on Nov. 27th and Dec. 4th going into Christmas downtime. Paying for a trip across the Atlantic then not having services upon returning would be financially unfeasible. But ten minutes after committing to go on the mission trip the cell phone rang, "Kris, I know this a little late notice, but would you happen to have Nov. 27th and Dec. 4th open. I need you both Sundays". Of course my comeback was, "Uh, let me check my schedule first. Hmm, brother, I just happen to have both those Sundays open. Pencil me in". I could tell dozens of those little stories, just coincidences, I know. How did the two Sundays turn out? Besides having fantastic moves of the Spirit of God, our ministry received the largest single Sunday offerings ever. Coincidence? I take a step of faith and God breaks through with the funds in less than ten minutes, the time it takes for a pastor to look up my phone number and make a call. Ah, it's a blast living hand to mouth...but the great thing about it is that it is from His hand to my mouth! Just a minute; I think the phone is going to ring again. "Oh, so you want to know if I have Thanksgiving weekend open...let me check my schedule".
