Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.”
One day in 1975, Reese Kauffman, an Indianapolis manufacturer, responded to the invitation at the end of a missionary service. Reese was a believer but felt something was missing in his life. He needed an outlet to serve the Lord with all his heart. A man named Roy Daniels met Reese in the prayer room and asked what decision he’d reached. “I don’t know that I’ve reached a decision,” said Reese. “I’ve just realized I want to do something for God.”
Roy’s eyes brightened and he asked, “Have you ever heard of Child Evangelism Fellowship?” The Lord had surely arranged that meeting and that moment. For many years now, Reese Kauffman has served as president of CEF, a ministry to children in more than 190 nations.1
There are no accidents, coincidences, or lucky breaks for Christians. An unseen hand guides our footsteps, ordains our work, opens and closes doors, and directs us in service. When we walk in God’s way, He places us right where we need to be, just when we need to be there.
To the child of God, there is no such thing as an accident. He travels an appointed way.
