This past week I was reminded of God and how he works in my life. I move through life and forget sometimes how much control he really has in my walk. How he cares for me and others around me? This week he reminded me once again of his presence in my life. “In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.” John 14:20. I stood in a moment when I knew that God had been at work.
Skip it or not?
I have to honestly admit I was dreading something this past week. The snow at the beginning of the week made it even more desirable to skip out on a promise I had made, but I knew I had given my word so I plunged forward. I guess I felt my heart strings being pulled and did not even know why. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28. That is the work I saw from the Lord this week. He used everything to bring good not just into my life but to those around me. I am not sure if those with me realized the impact but this day did not pass me by without knowing that God had been in full control and done his good work.
Where God is?
Now looking back from the other side and knowing that I almost did not go, I can see God’s full plan and the blessings he provided for me. I thought I did not want to go, but now I know that I would not have missed it for the world. What I thought I was going for had nothing to do with the lesson that God taught me that day. Where was God? He was in an unexpected place where I was not looking, yet he reminds me to look every where for him. “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13. Maybe it was a slap in the face to remember that I am to be seeking him, but when I fail like this past week he will seek me. “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10
Closing Verse: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
Challenge: Seek God first in all that you do, but know that he will seek you in a place you might least expect it.
