During the preaching in yesterday’s service, I wrote this note to Michael, who sat beside me: “It never fails to amaze me how God directs a preacher’s sermon.”
Michael read the note, smiled, leaned over and spoke in my ear: “It’s supernatural.”
Indeed it is supernatural, and the sermon yesterday by Patrick Garrett was a profound demonstration of this phenomenon. Although I admit to limited insight into the human condition, and certainly lay no claim to exceptional spiritual discernment–it nevertheless seems impossible to me that this preacher could have more directly addressed the needs of our congregation.
Do you understand what I am saying? God–the One who created the heavens and the earth, the Creator of all life, He who buckled the ends of the earth together and Who fenced the edges of the seas–that One–from His infinite knowledge and incomparable love moved within the psyche and soul of Patrick Garrett and directed a sermon.
It is impossible. It is supernatural.
