Let Love Surprise You
Today's Scripture: Isaiah 42:16
Today’s message is simple: let love find you and surprise you.
Figuring out life, wondering what next to do, where next to go, and why two plus two does not equal four is only human to wonder about. Also, being terrified about why you are always the bridesmaid but never the bride, why it’s two steps forward and four steps backward, why this job interview or that visa interview never came through, or why you seem to have everything checked in material possessions but you are without peace in your heart is also only human to be worried about.
But amidst all of this, have you prayed and committed everything to God? Have you decreed that His angels take charge of this atmosphere and that atmosphere? Have you declared that protocols be broken for your sake? Have you commanded that life continually turns in your favor? Have you found yourself shutting up the enemy and his agents in the place of prayer?It’s either you’re saying, “I have done all of this” or you’re saying, “Yes, I need to do this.” If you are thinking or saying the former, then here’s the next step: let love find you and surprise you. Again, I have come to tell you to let love find you and surprise you.
What does this mean? Today’s Scripture says, “But I’ll take the hand of those who don’t know the way, who can’t see where they’re going. I’ll be a personal guide to them, directing them through unknown country. I’ll be right there to show them what roads to take, make sure they don’t fall into the ditch. These are the things I’ll be doing for them—sticking with them, not leaving them for a minute” (MSG).
Don’t label yourself a closed case – not yet! God, who is Love, is just about to find you and surprise you. Keep on keeping on and keep an open heart.
