This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 23:1 (ESV)
Today I am reminding you that God will meet your needs in unforeseen ways.
I want you to stay encouraged because everything on this earth is within God’s dominion, and He can use anyone or anything to meet your needs. This is exactly the lesson that God taught Moses.
During the Israelites’ long journey to the Promised Land, they became very hungry and thirsty, so God instructed Moses to command a nearby rock to pour out its water. Moses struck the rock twice with his staff, and suddenly water flowed from the rock. There was actually enough water to satisfy both the people and their livestock.
After reading this passage, I thought to myself that we just never know who or what God will use to meet our needs. Moses and Aaron only saw a rock, so they didn’t think twice about that rock being their source for water—even though that is what ultimately ended up quenching their thirst.
In the same way, we may judge a person or a new opportunity and quickly dismiss it for not being a source that can fulfill our needs. I know this is especially true for me because I often become fixated on one solution and lose sight of the myriad ways God can solve things.
Sometimes it is the one we least expect or the new opportunity we resist the most through which God will choose to answer our prayers.
