It’s Christmas in September… or at least it seems so in my household. I wrote a Christmas list and said, Lord, here is what I’m praying for… I can’t tell you what it is because it would spoil the story. Some months have passed now, and yes, my thoughts dimmed a bit, but I never gave up hope. If God wanted me to have this, He would see a way to make it happen. Reality set in, and I wondered if I wished my life away. And then wham!
Going a step further, let me share a fact of this event that happened to us last Sunday. Not one person we encountered on this day was someone we knew, nor was it possible for us to connect with them daily. God was totally in control of the situation. It was just our turn for God’s will to be done. We waited patiently for the Holy Spirit to connect the dots.
I know God supplies our needs, not our wants. It should be no surprise that if we honor His name, He will shower us with more blessings than we can handle. For my wife and me, today was another example of the Lord’s pat on the back. He proved, beyond our wildest imagination, that He, in fact, will do precisely what He promises His followers.
I understand a little more about the power of God. If we believe and have faith, then fate is undoubtedly your destination. His designs for our future are always perfect and beyond our imagination. In reality, we’d like to believe miracles are not possible, but in fact, quite the opposite is true.
Every day I witness God placing an encounter of new horizons for me to tackle, an obstacle course of twists and turns. But seek, and ye shall find… quite literally!
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
As in having Christmas in September, I feel the rejuvenating emotions of Christ move my spirit. Simply stated, God is positioning me for my future, both at home and in the world.
We serve an amazing God in heaven! His Son watches over us. He moves in us, if we allow the Holy Spirit to be prevalent in our human nature. So, Merry Christmas… even if it is September. May the blessings of God fall upon you like the autumn leaves. And hopefully, you, too, will find your desires and the destinations God is leading you to in His graciousness. Be not afraid, but stay in faith, for our Father creates our every encounter in life.
