You are just one divine appointment away from a complete change of circumstance

Billy Graham was an unknown young evangelist, doing meetings for a youth organization in L.A. and an intercessor somehow got hold of the residence of William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper owner. She called and told him about the meetings and Hearst put out a notice to 11 editors to “puff Graham.” At the next meeting a group of photographers were covering the event and Billy asked “Why?” They said “You’ve been kissed by Hearst.” He did not understand what they meant till later.

In fact, Graham owes much of his fame to two media moguls met by being at the right place at the right time: newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and Henry Luce, co-founder of Time Inc. and creator of TIME, LIFE, Fortune, and other influential American publications. Both Hearst and Luce were impressed by Graham’s first major crusade, a marathon revival in a tent in Los Angeles in 1949. They were also impressed by the combination of his message of spiritual renewal and his strong anti-communist politics. For his part, Luce had the L.A. crusade covered favorably in both TIME and LIFE.

I pray you meet your divine appointment and recognize it when it happens!
