I am amazed at how God is constantly at work in my life. Whether it be something that I consider big or something I consider small, God is ever so faithful to me. He doesn’t just hear me when I cry out to Him, but He responds to my cries. So many times He does things before I even know that there is a need in my life. That is how much my Abba Father loves me!
I have something special that just recently happened to me. It won’t mean much to others, but it means the world to me. It’s just another way that I know that God is always watching out for me. At all times. In all ways.
It was time for me to get my van tires balanced and rotated. I visited my local tire shop on a Saturday morning to get this taken care of. I arrived just a little before closing time, so they weren’t sure that they could work me in. After doing some checking, they assured me that they were able to fit me in that day. I was thankful that I was going to be able to mark this off my to-do list for the day. So I took a seat and waited on them to complete the job.
After a few minutes of sitting and patiently waiting, an employee approached me. She then began to show me what they had found in my tire. It was a screw! They just happened to find that in my tire. I didn’t go in with the intentions of having my tire repaired. I went in with the intention of having my tires balanced and rotated. I didn’t know that this was an issue, but God did.
I was ever so thankful for this find. First of all because I do lots of driving and commuting. Then second of all because I was scheduled to go out of town the very next day for a ministry engagement. I didn’t even have to wonder if God was watching out for me. I knew that He was!
After this special God moment, it made me think about all of the times in my life that God has been watching over me and taking care of me. There isn’t one moment that He’s not aware of everything that’s going on in my life. He is concerned about what concerns me – even down to the very smallest detail in my life. This is the beautiful and overwhelming love of my Abba Father. So awesome that my words don’t even do it justice.
My situation is unique to me, but not to God. Everyday He is working and doing things in your life, whether you are aware of it or not. He wants you to know Him and recognize His presence in your day-to-day, mundane life. He always has you in His thoughts. He desires to favor and bless you just because and not for anything you do or don’t do.
So where is God at work in your life? How has He made Himself evident to you? Be paying close attention because He is going to show up in some of the most surprising ways. Ways that you never even dreamed of. When He does these things for you, then share it with others. It will encourage them in their journey of faith.
God, I’m watching and waiting for Your next big reveal in my life. What will it be? How will it happen? Only You know the answers to those questions, but one thing I am sure of. You are only getting started!
