This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Proverbs 3:5 (KJV)
Today, I am thinking about what it feels like to be in limbo.
Limbo is that moment when you feel like you’ve done everything you can to get the ball down the field, but now you need God to help you get that ball into the end zone. However, I have learned from my own personal experience that my idea of fixing a situation is usually one dimensional, whereas God’s ways are much more strategic and multi-dimensional.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about Esther. Esther was a young Jewish girl in Persia who was chosen to replace Queen Vashti, who had recently been exiled. The fact that Esther was Jewish was a secret; it was even unknown to the king.
However, not long after Esther was crowned queen, a decree went out to exterminate all Jewish people. This left Esther in a very bad place. She needed to approach the king and make an appeal for the lives of the Jewish people, but she didn’t want to risk revealing her own identity.
When you think about this, she was perfectly positioned to make the appeal to the king. In this, we see that God fixes things strategically, on multiple levels, and sometimes long before we even begin to pray about a situation. Just as He fixed this situation and saved all of the Jewish people’s lives, He will fix the problems in your life as well.
Let us cling to these words today: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 (KJV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, allow God to be your fixer-in-chief.
