This morning I am reminded that good things happen when you least expect it. Because I was hoping that the piano scam was real, I called a nearby piano moving and tuning company to get prices for both. I sure wasn’t going to get a fantastic piano and not take care of it being moved correctly. Pianos are large and heavy but they are still fragile. The piano mover guy was so interested in this “free piano” that he said that if I didn’t want it he would get it!
Of course after the scammer blocked me I called him back to let him know what had happened. He was very appreciative. He mentioned his work with pianos when he lived in Texas and that started a whole new conversation. He was so knowledgeable about pianos in Texas that he knew the piano store where my mother bought my first upright in Tyler, Texas. He even said he would be on the lookout for something I might like at a reasonable price.
Oh beloved, God moves in the midst of the moments of your life that seem so wrong. He is so acquainted with your life that He will take a rough time and give it a polish of goodness. You don’t have to worry or be upset with any situation. God is with you. He has gone before you. He is preparing blessings for you. And as you learn to wait on Him, He will indeed work all things together for your good. You don’t even have to hunt for what you need.
Whatever it is you are in need of this morning, God is with you and He is pointing the way for you. He is calling you to be valiant in the scariest times. He is calling you to respond to Him not to the circumstances. He is calling you higher up with Him when you just want to crawl under a rock. He is calling you to stand out and prophesy His goodness when you feel like running off. He is giving you security to step into when you feel disqualified because you found out you were about to be swindled by the enemy. If you’re lying in the dirt, feeling sorry for your stupid stuff, He is holding out His hand to dust you off and restore your direction!
God loves you and He’s for you. It’s all about Him and what He has done for you. And what He will work together for your good. And how much mercy He bestows – from Jesus going to the cross for you to life in Holy Spirit – all this is because of His great love. Run to Him this morning and ask Him to show you all the times He worked all things together for your good. Enjoy the visit of blessings and then go out and live in the Light of the wonderful things He has shown you about your life!
