The Unexpected

th

Not everything in life comes in a nice neat package. There are things that life throws at us that are unexpected but let me give you a new perspective on the unexpected things of life.

Do you remember when Jesus was teaching the crowd of people and it got late in the day and He didn’t want to send them away without feeding them because they were in a very remote area. So he told the disciples to feed them. You can find the story in Matthew 14 but their first thought was that it would cost too much to feed so many.

When they brought Jesus the small fish dinner and He blessed it, it became more than enough to feed the crowd. There will always be tests in our lives but those tests are to challenge our faith. Not faith in our own resources, but faith in God and His Word. If Jesus said to do it, than you can be guaranteed that He has already made provision for it.

Stop looking at what you don’t have and start looking for what you do have, then offer it up to God. He said whatever you bless will be blessed and whatever you curse will be cursed so begin blessing your supply. You may need $1000 and only have $100, offer it up to God and ask Him to bless and multiply it, than do what He showed the disciples-give it out. What you collect after will fill up multiple baskets.

Without faith, it’s impossible to please God, so stop looking at your need and begin to ask God what to do with your seed. The answer to your situation is in your own hands, but until you get your eyes off your problem and on to God, you’ll never see it, you’ve exalted the problem over the problem solver.

Father, I offer up to you my seed. I believe that all things are possible with You. Thank You for growing my faith this year, faith in Your Word and Your promises. You are my healer, provider, protector, deliverer. I know that I can’t please you without faith and that my faith can grow, so grow my faith!  With every unexpected and unplanned situation I face, may I turn to You and ask Your blessing on what You’ve provided and trust You to take care of it. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
