There is nothing about life that comes easily. We go through changes, but we don’t need to stay in them! But, if we allow the vicissitudes of life to limit us, we may not be able to achieve our purpose in life. God is so dynamites that He will use the unexpected in order to fulfil His divine purpose!
Recently, vicissitudes took me from the environment that’s stable to an unstable environment and this makes me to realize that God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise! God will use the simplest things into order to bring us to the place where He wants us to be. He can cause us to connect with the most unlikely people and put the links to our breakthrough in their hands.
This is the same God who called the most unlikely and unqualified set of people like fisherman, tax collector, murderer…… and made them His disciples! You see, if we are looking for God in the mighty earthquake, we may not find Him! If we are looking for God in the fiery fire, we may find Him! God does not always have to manifest Himself in the flashy or showy ways. Sometimes, I really mean sometimes, He will come to us in the still, small voice. And if we are too busy looking for God miracle in the hustle and bustle, we may miss it.
Remember, Naaman’s help and deliverance came from a simple, mere slave (Abigail). In the book of Ruth Chapter 3, Naomi teaches Ruth how to be attractive to stranger and Ruth embraces her mother in law perspective. Thank God she did not hold on to the past! Ruth has a King in her, Naomi help her to get it out. Some people whether they are bad or good, are not just in our lives but to introduce and challenge us to the next level. So, today I encourage us to be on the lookout for the great miracle of God that will appear through simple things.
The moral of this story is, if you have a vision that you can achieve by yourself, it means the vision is too small. A tree can never become a forest; get connected because when we connect things happen. Ironsharpenthiron.com J
