This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Isaiah 45:15 (ESV)
Today, I want you to know that even when you can’t see them – your blessings were put into motion long ago.
Recently, I was flipping through my journal pages and came across an entry where I was in a sense “pouting” before God. After what felt like a string of unanswered prayers, I was going on and on about how I haven’t been seeing God’s Hand on my life like before. Imagine that?
Because my journal entries have a date on them, I would later learn on the very day that I was writing in my journal, venting my frustrations, the answer to my prayer had already been in motion. Even though I saw no sign of my prayer being answered – God had already put things in motion long before I sat down to write in my journal.
He did the same thing with Joseph who had been in prison for 12 years for a crime he didn’t commit. While Joseph was trying his very best to secure his freedom, God was behind the scenes putting blessing after blessing in motion for him. Joseph would not only gain his freedom, but he would be reunited with his family, and become the 2nd in charge of all of Egypt.
Sometimes, when you experience a blessing from God, you might think about it when you receive it, in the here and now. We miss the fact that the blessing we experience today was, in fact, put into motion long ago.
As you think about that, remember these words:
“Truly, O God…our Savior, you work in mysterious ways.” Isaiah 45:15 (NLT)
So today, it’s in motion!
