Seeing the Hand of God… In the Moment

Many times in hind-sight we can look back and trace the hand of God in a situation. We can see how He was divinely choreographing every step and orchestrating the sequence of events that eventually led to resolution of that circumstance. We also look back and see how we were so diligent to seek Him during that time of uncertainty, and how we felt so helpless without Him.

But too often, while still in the midst of it all, we feel alone or like He has forgotten about our situation. We get upset when things happen differently than we expected, we get impatient when certain doors stay closed and we think they should open, we look for instant gratification and resolution to our situation, and instant answers to our questions/decisions. And we find ourselves saying “Why isn’t anything happening in my situation?”

Truth be told… IT IS. Today, God wants you to begin looking for Him… IN THE MOMENT. He is so busy around you but you may be too preoccupied with the “final outcome” that you’re missing out on journeying with Him in the moment.

He wants you to begin to live “GOD-CONSCIOUS” every moment of the day. How often do you consciously focus on His Presence around you in the midst of your hectic day? HE IS THERE! That interruption to your schedule earlier today… It may have been a divine opportunity sent by God… perhaps to open a door in your life or a “Holy Ghost set up” for you to bless someone else.

So today… begin to look for the Hand of God moving in your midst. Don’t miss the JOY of the JOURNEY. His timing is PERFECT, His ways are HIGHER THAN YOUR WAYS, He is PERFECTING THE THINGS THAT CONCERN YOU….

Stop waiting for Him to “answer your prayer” and recognize that YOUR ANSWER IS IN PROCESS ALL AROUND YOU!

REJOICE IN THE MOMENT for the character, endurance, patience and perseverance that is being built in you through the process! HE MAKES YOU UNCOMFORTABLE ON PURPOSE SO YOU CAN KNOW HIM MORE!

…for in Him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret… Ps 37:7

Be still, and know that I am God… Ps 46:10

The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever… Ps 138:8

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deut 31:8

Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isa 30:20-21

Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand… Jer 18:6
