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 solutions to your issues that you’ve never even considered.
Sometimes we carry issues over from the previous year into our new year, wondering what will we do differently this year to fix things. We play out multiple scenarios in our mind, but we still see no way out. Yet 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. He had been arrested at a time when King Herod had begun persecuting Christians. The night before his trial, Peter was surrounded by a total of eighteen soldiers. To the natural eye, Peter seemed to be in a very 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’ve never thought of either. So don’t let those issues from last year begin to consume your new year. Instead, turn matters over to God and remember 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.
