Not On My Radar

Have you ever had your heart set on doing something only to have God interrupt your plans? Recently, the Lord instructed me to go to the local warehouse club the following day. I had my day all planned out and this task was not on my radar. However, it occurred to me the store would open at 7:00am so seniors could shop early. At least I’d be able to avoid long lines. In spite of the inconvenience, I traipsed off to the store and arrived a little after 7:00am. Immediately upon entering the store the greeter said, “Good morning. Disinfectant wipes are in aisle twelve.” Stunned, I replied, “how did you know that’s what I needed?” Since the pandemic, it’s been almost impossible to find disinfectant wipes. I had been searching for weeks with no success. My supply of wipes was almost depleted and I worried I’d run out. Needless to say, I praised God all the way to aisle twelve. Although shopping wasn’t on my radar, obedience to God’s instructions positioned me for provision.

God’s instructions don’t always make sense. They just demand our obedience. I’ve come to realize some of the greatest blessings I’ve received were birthed out of inconvenience. You never know what God’s instructions may be leading you to, or for that matter what He’s shielding you from.

The New Living Translation of Psalm 32:8 says, “God knows the best path for your life. He will advise and watch over you.” Uncertain times demand trust and obedience. God’s always has your best interests in mind. We can rest in the certainty of God’s wisdom and faithfulness. He’s not limited by time, space or pandemic. God is not absent-minded and He’s not on a fixed income. God is faithful to fulfill His promise to supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19).  

Trust God even when things don’t make sense. You never know when or how God will move on your behalf. Always be ready to surrender to the Lord’s plans, even if they’re not on your radar. Remember, obedience always positions you for victory and blessings!

Until next time…Be blessed!
