Suddenly

  • Watch therefore, for you don't know when the lord of the house is coming'whether at evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning; lest, coming suddenly, he might find you sleeping. What I tell you, I tell all: Watch! Mark 13:35-37 WEB.

    We went through a season where I was strongly urged by the Holy Spirit to pray every day, from one to three hours, starting at 3 PM. The presence of the Lord became so strong in the room that it was tangible. It was a wonderful intimate time.

    Then that season passed, the Lord grew silent, and our computer business started failing. Our income grew less and less, then it stopped completely. As the bills began piling up, we tried everything, but nothing seemed to help. We gave more, prayed more, fasted more, served more, and tried to find any job possible. Then when out of options, we prepared to move out of our home.

    After several months of this, I no longer had the energy or willpower to pray anymore. I felt abandoned, and the Lord hadn't spoken to me in months. Then one morning during the week we were preparing to move, I went into my prayer room and sat down.

    I just sat there, mostly contemplating how much I would miss our home. Without saying a word, suddenly the Lord spoke to me in a vision, and within twenty-four hours, our life had completely changed for the better. By that Friday, I was a pastor.

    God closed out the old and brought in something new. It hurt to see the old go, but what He had in store was so much better. God moves suddenly at what we often consider the very last minute. Yet, it's not to Him. He knew the day the transition would take place, and He was right on time. Our fears and worries were for nothing.

    God knows where you are, and He has the day marked on His calendar when your circumstance will suddenly change. So don't give up yet. We don't know the day or the hour, but the Father does. He won't be late, nor early, but it will suddenly change.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that you meet my needs and move in my life. Please draw me into a deeper relationship with You. Give me a fresh zeal today, and speak to me in a way I understand. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those following the Creation Photography weekly challenges, here is this week's theme from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Deuteronomy 6:5 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." ~ To help my focus be on lovely things our next fun theme will be 'If You Love It Take a Picture of It', and will be for the next two weeks as I take some time to focus on my family As always, our themes are wide open for creative interpretation We also encourage you to post anything else that inspires you as well. My photos this week reflect just a few of the things I love! May the rest of your October be full of love, safety, and joy ~ God bless! Here is the link: Creation Photographers
