“God’s Perfect Timing”

 

“For I know the plans I have for you.” – Jeremiah 29:11

God revealed His perfect timing this spring at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). Each semester the chaplain coordinates a “Worship As One” event to bring all the institute’s ministries together for a time of worship. At the beginning of the school year the chaplain asked me if I had any suggestions for a speaker. I was quick to suggest George Morris, the University of Virginia FCA Campus Director. George is a dynamic speaker whose love of the Lord is evident in all he does. When I asked George to speak, his responsibilities with the UVA football team prevented it. I was disappointed but understood. At the beginning of the second semester the VMI Chaplain asked me again about George’s availability to speak. Now George was in basketball season so he said it would have to be April 16, hoping that UVA would go deep into the tournament. This is late in the semester and a busy time at VMI but the chaplain said “let’s do it.” On that night, George gave a challenging message and eleven cadets came forward to make a personal commitment to our Lord. Why did God have us wait? First and most important, God was preparing the hearts of the cadets. He was also waiting for UVA to win the NCAA National Basketball Championship. He used the championship to help attract cadets to come hear the chaplain behind the team.

God was not done with surprises in Rockbridge County. He encouraged me to forgo a formal banquet and have a Spring Celebration. At this celebration, there was not a main speaker. Instead an athlete or coach from each huddle shared how God used FCA to impact their lives. Wow, what a night! Starting with Noah, a sixth grade middle schooler, each shared from the heart. Each had a special story, a personal story of how the creator of the universe cares and touches lives, one heart at a time. That night reminded me that God can move through big events with wonderful speakers like George but he also moves through the hearts of athletes and coaches who may never get their names in lights.

God does have a perfect plan and perfect timing. Listen for God’s direction in your life whether it is to speak before a large crowd or to kneel in private for prayer. God is doing both in a small county in the Shenandoah Valley. He is moving one heart at a time!

And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”           —Matthew 28:18-20
