You feel it to, don’t you? Its right there – always has been, stuck in your craw. Or perhaps yours is like mine, a thorn as Paul said, “In your side”. I carry it with me every freakin’ where I go! I cannot shake it and it finally dawned on me that maybe I’m not supposed to – maybe it was sent to buffet me, to keep me aligned with my purpose.
It’s that ONE! That one day that keeps being put afar off, that one opportunity that is needed to put me into position to walk into my destiny. That one connection with the right person, that one idea that will catapult me into my promise, that one stroke of genius that will bring the ingenuity that will change the world. That ONE SPARK!
Maybe it was that One Spark that ignited the night to burst and break away from the day that sounded like a Big Bang. To hear God speak one utterance I am sure is world changing- we are still being blessed by his Word that spoken before time began its berth.
I feel it over me like a shadowy Grim Reaper that is waiting to either take my life or bless me abundantly with it. I know it’s there, but I feel as though I am surrounded by thick heavy curtains and I just want to snatch them all down, one-by-one from their rings and scream, “Where is it”? And state emphatically that “I know it’s here”!
Then when my frustration sets in at its worst, God reminds me that when Jesus went to the cross, it was all finished; the veil of the temple torn into two. The curtain that I most needed to be concerned with has already been torn down and if I want to receive what’s behind the curtain, all I need is to look to Jesus to reveal it in his due time and season.
The odds were against us and have been since the day that we entered into this world into sin and shaped in iniquity. But, I also know that before the foundations of the Earth, the lamb was slain for those sins. Everything needed was done from the beginning, intended for my expected end.
I defy the odds, like my hair defies gravity – It’s a Natural Occurrence that cannot be explained – neither can the blessings of God.
Coinkydink? Naw… There are no such missteps in the plan of God.
