This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 139:2 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about how God knows when your heart changes.
This is something I reflected on as I read about Rahab. More specifically, I was comforted by her story because it made clear how much God knows our hearts.
Rahab was a prostitute who lived in Jericho. Before Joshua ultimately conquered the town of Jericho, he sent two spies in advance, and Rahab allowed the spies to hide in her house.
While the spies were there, she talked to them about their God, saying she had heard all about their God of both heaven and Earth. She talked with them so passionately that it was almost as if she wanted their God to become her God as well.
A month later, Joshua returned to conquer the entire town of Jericho. In the chaos, Rahab and her family were spared.
Reading about this inspired me because not only did God know Rahab’s heart had changed, but He knew the moment she made the switch and desired Him more than her lifestyle.
I think it’s important for us to be inspired that we serve a God who is intimately aware of our hearts and even knows the actions we may end up taking next. As you think about that, hold onto these few words: “You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.” Psalm 139:2 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, be encouraged that God knows when your heart changes.
