If you read my blog from this past Friday, I told you about an opportunity that I let slip away at the Tri-Cities Airport on Thursday to at least give a gospel tract to NHRA Funny Car Champion, John Force. Friday morning, I cried out to the Lord for another opportunity. When you really think of it, since I am not attending the race this weekend in nearby Bristol, and even if I was, why would anyone let me near this man? As I read 2 Kings 1-4, I wrote in my journal all the times we see the mighty acts of God described in those four chapters. Even 2 King 3:18, Elisha says, This is a light thing in the sight of the LORD. He will give the Moabites into your hand. What seems impossible to us is a light thing in God’s sight.
Are you ready for this? While walking out of Sam’s Club last Friday night, who was pushing a large cart of items to a Ford van but a man wearing a shirt just like the one John Force was wearing on Thursday. I asked him, “What is the chance you will be talking to John Force?” He said, “100%!” I couldn’t believe it but here was Thomas, one of his team members!! I told him my story, gave him a gospel tract, and he promised that it would be delivered! I certainly don’t know about John’s spiritual condition, but I just wanted the opportunity to place the gospel in his hands.
Tears came to my eyes as I walked back to my car. “God, how wonderful, gracious and kind you are to answer my prayer!” Futhermore, He showed me that He indeed is not willing that any perish (2 Peter 3:9)! What seemed impossible to me was a light thing to the LORD!!
Who do you want to reach with the Gospel? Seek the LORD, call upon Him, and watch Him work! It’s not a light thing to Him!
