Shortly after I became a Christian, a friend invited me to a celebration hosted by a man who headed one of the largest oil companies in the world. As I went through the reception line, I knew I was just another nobody to this man. But afterward, the Holy Spirit began to impress upon me to talk to him about his soul. I obediently called his office, and to my surprise, he agreed to meet with me.
When I walked into his office, he was sitting behind a big, mahogany desk in a high-back chair, not a sheet of paper on his desk. "What can I do for you?" he asked.
"Well, sir," I said, "I asked you for fifteen minutes of your time. I don't want to impose. I have come to talk to you about your relationship with Jesus Christ."
Suddenly, he began to cry. As he sobbed, he told me his story. He became a Christian when he was eight years old. But after getting involved in business, he turned away from God. He said, "I have made such a mess out of my life. Some think that I am at the top of the ladder of success, but I feel like a great failure. I have lost my family and everything dear to me."
Beforehand, I had no way of knowing where this man was spiritually or what he was going through, but God did. As I responded to the Holy Spirit's leading, God opened the door so that this man's life could be turned around.
