This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 28:7 (ESV)
Today I am encouraging you to avoid partially turning your situation over to God. Instead, turn it all over to Him and you’ll be all the better for it!
This is exactly what the Israelites did when they were instructed to observe the Sabbath of the seventh year. In the Sabbath year, they were not allowed to farm their land and had to let the land rest instead. In other words, the Israelites had to fully trust that God would provide for them for an entire year.
Here’s what’s significant. Farming their land was how the Israelites ate from day to day as well as how they provided for their families.
So picture this: The Israelites walked by their own land every day for an entire year and resisted the urge to farm it, putting all their faith in God to provide for them. Imagine if you and your family were hungry and you had to walk by a table each day with all your favorite foods, but you couldn’t partake. Instead, you had to trust that God would feed you and your family another way.
Here’s the good news – this is how God responds when you fully trust Him and not just partially —
He allowed the Israelites’ land to produce two to three times more in that seventh year than it did any of the other years when their land was actually being farmed by them.
What situation have you partially turned over to God, but now need to turn completely over to Him?
As you think about that, remember these words: “The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him, my heart trusts, and I am helped.” Psalm 28:7 (ESV)
So today, turn it all over to Him!
