Even if you have faced calamity and disappointment, you will yet go on to great heights for Jesus. Trust him as he sends his angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place he has prepared for you.
Listen to this week’s GodTracker podcast here,
‘See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.’
Ann was a talented organist. When she sat down at the keyboard people were mesmerised by her playing. She was the beloved organist who led the worship in her church. Ann was stable in her faith yet unfamiliar with the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Then it happened. God, in his sovereignty, touched a meeting where Ann was leading worship. Folks became whelmed by the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other tongues, as we see happening in the book of Acts. Ann was elated by her experience and wanted everybody in the church to know the same touch from God. Sadly, however, some folks in her church felt otherwise and rejected the move of the Holy Spirit. Ann and her husband were asked to leave the church.
Ann believed God had a plan for her to help usher in a great move of his Spirit in her church and community. Yet now she was spiritually homeless. How could she ever be used of God to draw his people into a deeper walk with their Father? But God had a plan for Ann and her husband. He prepared a place for them. They attended Bible college and then settle in a new church. Today Ann and her husband are pastors in a large Spirit and Word-based church in her hometown. The Lord God had guarded his deposit in their hearts and brought them to the place he had prepared for them.
God has a place prepared for you, too. You may feel as though your dreams have been dashed by circumstance or criticism. But he who was and is and is to come is already in your tomorrow. He knows your beginning from your end. All your days were written in his book of your life before one of them came to be. Even if you have faced calamity and disappointment, you will yet go on to great heights for Jesus. Trust him as he sends his angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place he has prepared for you.

Thank you that your angels guard me along the way and to bring me to the place you have prepared for me.
“Dear Lord, thank you so much for the deposit of your Holy Spirit in my heart. Thank you for the plans you have prepared for me, to use me in my church, in my family and in my community. I admit that I have been disappointed by many people in my past and my dreams have seemed to collapse. And yet, O Lord, I know that if I continue to acknowledge you in all my ways you will continue to open divine opportunities for me to be used by you. Thank you that your angels guard me along the way and bring me to the place you have prepared for me. Hallelujah. Amen.”
