This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about how God has moves we have never even considered.
Previously, we talked about those things we need to do to better serve God. Now, we’re focusing on those things that we can expect from our heavenly Father.
Sometimes we can find ourselves in a difficult situation and see no way out. We play out multiple scenarios in our minds, but we still see no way out. It is when we turn that situation completely over to God that He will make a move we had never even considered.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about the time Peter was imprisoned. Peter was arrested at a time when King Herod had begun persecuting Christians.
The night before his trial, Peter was surrounded by four squads of four soldiers and was chained to a soldier on each side, totaling eighteen soldiers. To the natural eye, Peter seemed to be in a difficult situation that presented no way out.
However, sometime during the night, an angel of the Lord appeared before Peter and instructed him to wake up, get dressed, and follow him. The angel led Peter past two more guard stations and out into the street. Once outside, Peter realized that God had sent an angel to save him, a move by God that Peter had never even considered.
In the same respect, God’s answer to your situation is likely one you have never even considered. As you turn over matters to Him, hold onto these words: “Fear not, for I am with you…I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, wait for God’s next move.
