This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
Today, I am appreciating God as the Ultimate Fixer. Yesterday, I talked about my desire to fix things. We see that our way of fixing things can be more one-dimensional, and may involve a narrow way of thinking.
However, when we look at God, He does not see things as we see them. As the Scriptures teach us, God’s mind is not like our minds. God orchestrates things more strategically, and on many more levels than we do.
When I look to the Scriptures for a good example of this principle, I recall Esther’s story. Esther is a young Jewish girl chosen to replace the queen of the land. At the time, her nationality was unknown to the king and those around her.
Shortly after she is made queen, a decree goes out to extinguish all Jewish people in the land. Esther will ultimately have to risk revealing her nationality as she makes her appeal to the king. She would have to do this not only to save herself, but her entire race.
When you think about it, what were the chances that this young Jewish girl would be placed in this foreign court at that particular time, so that she would be well-positioned to save her own people?
That’s how God fixes things – strategically…on multiple levels…and, sometimes long before we even begin to pray about a situation.
Also, when God fixes a situation it can be everlasting. To mark this event of Esther saving the Jewish people, there is an annual celebration called the Festival of Purim. This event is still celebrated today.
The Words that strengthen my trust are, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
Tomorrow, let’s talk about God’s reward. Please share this reflection, because others desire to be inspired.
So today, choose God as your Fixer-in-Chief.
