Focus Verse: The Lord does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9 (AMP)
“Worship Me, like I can change your situation instantly.” -God
We serve a God who can do just that. Our current situation, as we know it, can be changed instantly, by just one word from Him. But how many of us actually conduct ourselves in a manner that says we believe that? Do we actually believe that our situation will change? Or have we gotten so accustom to what “is” and have learned to accept it?
I have been guilty of this. “Well God, if this is the way that it’s going to be, I will just have to make the best of it.” Accepting my current state as if it’s my final state, as if there is nothing more in life for me, as if what God said would come to pass won’t and He can’t change it instantly.
Consider Rahab in the book of Joshua. She was not a woman of God, she was an Amorite, a group of idolatrous people. But from her encounters with others, she had heard of God’s mighty work for the Children of Israel. And she had come to believe God was who she had learned He was, see Joshua 2.
Rahab knew that these men represented The Almighty God and if she got connected with them, her situation and the situation of her entire family could change, instantly. And that is indeed what happened in Joshua 6:23 when the Children of Isreal overtook Jericho. Rahab and her entire family were spared during the siege of Jericho. And she later became part of the royal genealogy of Jesus Christ, Matthew 1:5-16
Do you believe your situation will change? That thing that you know God has spoken to you, yet nothing appears the way He said? I want to encourage you today, that you serve a God who can change your situation just like He did for Rahab, instantly.
Prayer: Father, thank You so much for being a loving God. I don’t deserve any of the kindness that You show me. So many times I have gotten so caught up in life, the way it is now. Totally disregarding the fact that You can and will change my situation, forgive me. Thank You for reminding me that I will not always in my current situation. And help me to remember to worship You like You can and will change my situation, instantly. It is in the mighty name of Jesus I pray, Amen!
