This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV)
I’m not in the studio today, but I am appreciating what a supernatural response can do for you.
We’re wrapping up our series on navigating through challenging and unknown times. We’ve talked about seeking God for GPS-like directions, meaning direction at every step, as well as how we shouldn’t become too overwhelmed that we forget to start our day in prayer. We also discussed how, despite what we see in our lives day to day, God always has something greater at work.
This reminds me of a passage that I once read in the devotional, Jesus Calling. The point of the devotional was that when things seem to be going wrong, we should trust God. When things seem out of control, we should thank Him. Responding in a supernatural way can lift you above your circumstances.
This is exactly what Jeremiah did. When the Israelites were exiled to Babylon, they were considered refugees, and things were very much out of control for them. However, in this chaos, Jeremiah trusted God’s word and purchased a piece of land that he knew would fall into the hands of the Babylonians.
Jeremiah wanted to show the Israelites just how much he believed in God’s word during the chaos and before God’s promises were fulfilled. His response was a supernatural one.
In the midst of challenging times, let us cling to these words: “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, give a supernatural response.
