Finding Christ in Crisis

In that crisis that I had in the summer of 1990, I met Jesus. I drew nigh, and I was never going back. What I found was that a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument. Because of that experience that I had nobody ever could convince me that God wasn’t real. I understood, from that moment on, the reality of who God was. I don’t care how big you make God, God fit in that little tiny room and spoke to Antonio. The God of the universe took time to come by a little, small town called Highland Falls, New York, and speak to Antonio. It so radically transformed my life. I got up that morning, no purpose. Went to bed that night knowing I was going to be a preacher. Never preached a sermon. I’d heard preachers, but I had never preached a sermon! I got a new occupation, a new vision, and a new purpose, all in the span of half an hour!

Some of the crisis we go through are God-ordained moments for the revealing of who He is! I don’t know what you may be going through, today, and I don’t know what crisis you may have going on in your life, but I want to bring you to the reality… Is it a wake-up call?

Crisis. John F. Kennedy said that the word crisis, when written in Chinese, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other one represents opportunity. Do you understand that in the middle of what you’re dealing with right now is a golden opportunity? I got up thinking life was over, not that it was beginning. Glory to God! I thought it was over but for God it was just the beginning. There are God opportunities when we face a crisis.

Today, we’re going to be gold diggers. We’re going to get the honey out of the carcass. We’re going to get something sweet out of what the enemy meant to be bitter. We’re gonna find out that there’s honey in the honeycomb. Think back to some of your most excruciating moments of life that turned out to be God moments that led you to something great.
