B Moments, changes

God Knows the Moment Your Heart Changes

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.

B Moments, called

What Has God Called You to Do?

This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Acts 20:24 (NLT)

Today, I am in celebration mode as we mark the third year anniversary of B Moments.

The first thing I want to say is: praise God. We made it another 365 days of sharing God’s word. I could not be more grateful or feel more purposeful because I know that my life is aligned with what God has called me to do.

So today, that’s what I want to put on your heart. What has God called you to do? You may not have all the answers or have a detailed plan, but you know that He has put something on your heart and it has not gone away yet.

Sometimes, God gives you and only you an idea. Yet if doubt and fear creep in, it is likely you will fail to respond. So to play matters safe, you may attempt to mimic someone else’s idea or style. But I’ve already tried that approach and trust me, it doesn’t work.

Yet here we are three years later, celebrating B Moments—an original idea given to me by God that was started on my cell phone in my bedroom.

When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about how Gideon’s story started. Recall that when God sent an angel to tell Gideon that he would be the one who would save the Israelites from the Midianites, he was hiding below ground from the Midianites.

Are you hiding from God’s call today? If so, I would encourage you to listen to your heart, put your hand in His hand, and go for it. For inspiration, remember these words: “But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus…” Acts 20:24 (NLT)

Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.

So today, answer His call.
