In his remarkable account, Incidents of Gospel Work, Charles Stanley of Rotherham, England writes: “On one occasion I felt a distinct call to preach at a place I had only seen once. I did not know the name of the town, but I described it to a person from Staffordshire, who told me it was Uttoxeter. I continued in prayer during that week. On Friday I received a letter from Tenby, South Wales, enclosing a letter from a believer from Uttoxeter, asking the lady in Tenby if she could forward the enclosed letter to me. It was a request for me to preach the gospel at Uttoxeter. I immediately went and a number were gathered to Christ. Was this an accident? Why should we doubt the guidance of the Holy Spirit now, as He was manifestly present in the beginning? Jesus said, “And I will pray the Father, and He shall send you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever.” If we were more simple, we should know far more of His divine guidance in our path of service.
