Can God Interrupt You?
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
PROVERBS 16:9 NIV
Before rushing out of the house each morning, we grab our calendars or PalmPilots. Our day is efficiently planned. We are eager to check off our to do list. But wait! The phone suddenly rings. There is an unexpected knock at the door. The car tire is flat. How do we react when our plans are interrupted? Do frustration, resentment and anger quickly surface? We have places to go and people to meet! We do not have time for interruptions!
Have you ever considered that perhaps God has ordained our interruptions? A friend could be calling in need of encouragement. God knew you’d be just the right person to lift her spirits. Maybe the knock on the door is a lost child seeking help. Perhaps, just perhaps, God may be trying to get your attention.
There is nothing wrong with planning your day. However, we have such limited vision. God sees the big picture. Be open. Be flexible. Allow God to change your plans in order to accomplish His divine purposes. Instead of becoming frustrated, look for ways the Lord might be working. Be willing to join Him. When you do, interruptions will become blessings.
forgive me when I am so rigidly locked into my own agenda that I miss Yours. Give me Your eternal perspective so that I may be open to divine interruptions. Amen.
