"Divine Appointments" - 12/13/16 - Colossians 1-4; Philemon

"I, Paul, have been sent on special assignment by Christ as part of God's Master Plan."
 (Colossians 1:1)

 Isn't it exciting to know, as soon as your foot hits the floor each morning, our ABBA has  "Divine Appointments" set up for you in the day ahead!
Divine Appointments He has prepared you for, in the exact place, at the exact time, with the exact persons - before the world was made. 

Nothing about life is a coincidence.

All is in His control. 

But why is it, when throwing back the covers and climbing out of bed, we then reach over and put on the "robe of doubt"?  The ratty, old, beat up covering which serves no other purpose than to keep us in our comfort zone. 
Wouldn't it be a wonderful way of starting our day to instead put on the "Robe of His Truth"?

 To instead be excited as we go through our day.  Our eyes searching out eagerly for a glimpse of Him.  Our ears tuned into His frequency, so we know without doubt, it is His Voice we are hearing.  To drink in and taste what it is He has prepared for us at the "table of life".  To wrap our arms around and draw into our hearts, souls, minds, sharing The Love He is giving us through those He puts into our path.  To smell His fragrance in the sweet aroma of persons sacrificing self in order that He may be God in their lives.

To live each day with all senses overflowing with Him. 

Unfortunately, more often than not, we choose to continue wearing the "robe of doubt".  Making our way throughout the day enveloped in the fog of dread, anxiety, fear, anger, bitterness.  Crawling back under the covers at the end of the day, weary and overcome, by the weight of the world upon us. 

Why not live each day for Him.  Laying down at night,  going back over your day, falling asleep with a smile on your face, knowing He is using you for His "Divine Appointments".  Falling asleep in anticipation for the next morning, eager to begin yet another day discovering more of His "Divine Appointments".
