God's Faithful Hand Leading

For the word of God is quick,
and powerful, and sharper
than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul
and spirit, and of the joints
and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts
and intents of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

It is so neat to see how the Lord works in many areas of our lives.
When He shows us little glimpses, it is especially
One was recently shared with me and thought it would be
fun to share.

When my fella and I were at college, a guest speaker came.
His name is Tom Farrell.
He is a very good speaker and the Lord has greatly used him.
My fella remembers clearly the message Mr. Farrell spoke.
It was called, "When God Crashes Your Party."
The Lord spoke to my fella through the message.

My fella has also been able to speak similar messages along the way,
hoping to encourage other young people.  The message has had a great impact.

This week at my parent's church, Tom Farrell has
been speaking at their Revival Meetings.
My Dad talked with Mr. Farrell.
Dad shared with him how the Lord really used a message he spoke.
He proceded to tell him about the specific message,
"When God Crashes Your Party" while at the college we
were attending.

Mr. Farrell's eyes light up.  He remembered that very message!
Mr. Farrell speaks all over our country and he remembered that very time!
(This was also 20 years ago!)
Mr. Farrell said he was all set to speak another message
but the Lord told him at the last minute to change his message
and speak the Party Crashing Message.

My Dad thanked Mr. Farrell for speaking that
Mr. Farrell thanked my Dad for sharing with him and was encouraged by
the testimony!
Together, two men could share the blessing of seeing the Lord's
hand clearly at work and how it's continued for many years.
God is so good to give us encouragement along the way!
