Summary:Join Doyle Davidson and Paul Peters on set today as Doyle shares how the Lord got his attention with selling some corporate shares, challenging you by the Spirit of God to read the bible for yourself, his friend Dr. Rodney Butler, and much more.
[God Sells Doyle’s Part in the Corporation]
Doyle was 37 years old, a successful veterinarian specializing in equine medicine. He was making over $100,000.00, bought a new Pontiac Catalina almost every year, owned one -third of a share in a corporation that hosted large events, owned cattle, horses, etc; and loved the world. One day in June 1969 while driving down U.S. 75 going south on his way to his vet practice, God put a prayer in his heart. Doyle said, “Lord, if this is you that’s been bugging me all of these years, you sell my part of that corporation, and I’ll do what you ask me.” He kept driving, not giving any more thought to what he said. The next day while traveling on the same road to tend to a horse in Denison, Doyle stopped in a Dairy Queen in Anna, Texas to get a coke. There he ran into the other two shareholders of the corporation, asking him if he would be interested in selling his part of the corporation. Doyle sold it to them at 1:00 that same day. Now that it was sold, he began wondering what fun and inexpensive thing he could do next, but God already had the next plan for what Doyle was going to do, and that would be God requiring him to sell his veterinary hospital.
[Dr. Rodney Butler]
After God began speaking to Doyle about selling his veterinary hospital, he also told him who would buy it, and that was Dr. Rodney Butler. Dr. Butler was a real top notch veterinarian, an equine clinician, but someone who also didn’t like to run a business. Doyle had a hard time believing he would be the one to buy it; but God knew Dr. Butler, and God knew he would make him buy Doyle’s veterinary hospital.
[Challenging you by the Spirit of God]
Doyle continues speaking how that Jesus is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, and that he can do anything he wants to with any person. There is a book that’s been around for centuries, still the most read book, the only book that’s valid, and never changes, and that’s the Holy Bible; a book that if you haven’t started reading yet, you will. Doyle encourages everyone to just pick up a bible and begin reading it, there will be something that God will use to get your attention and grab you. Those who think you have it all together, that think that book is a book of fallacies, that book says this;
….. he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
[You’ll have to give it all up]
Doyle continues sharing how he had to sell everything he owned, giving it all up. Giving up his wife, horses, cattle, farms, all the investments, and all his clientele, to obey God. He says, “My friends, the cost is little compared to hell.”
