When God shows up Декабрь 28, 2010

‘…the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come…’ Malachi 3:1

Sometimes God shows up dramatically: like an unexpected cheque in the mail, a door suddenly opening, or the Lord protecting you from a situation that would otherwise destroy you (See Psalm 91:11). Other times He shows up quietly, replacing your anxiety with assurance, whispering, ‘Fear not…I am with you…’ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV). And when those around you say, ‘You’re different today, what’s changed?’ you reply, ‘I don’t know, I just have peace about it.’ That’s because, ‘…the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come…'(Malachi 3:1 NKJV) Here are two Bible stories which illustrate this:The first story demonstrates how God intervenes in situations where you are misunderstood and mistreated. ‘After they had been severely flogged…About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns…Suddenly…all the prison doors flew open…’ (Acts 16:23-26 NIV). Midnight prayers and songs of praise help you see beyond the problem, to God, the great problem-solver. By taking the focus off yourself and putting it on Him, your whole outlook begins to change. The second story demonstrates how God intervenes when we are overwhelmed by the sheer size of the challenge. Faced with leading two million Israelites into the Promised Land, Moses prays, ‘…show me now Your way…’ (Exodus 33:13 NKJV). And God replies, ‘…»Here is a place by Me…I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand…’ (Exodus 33:21-23 NKJV). When God tells you, ‘Here is a place by me,’ get into it and stay there! Even when you can’t see Him clearly, you’ll feel His presence, experience His goodness, and know that everything is going to be okay.
