“I foretold the former things long ago, My mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.” (Isaiah 48:3)
Remember the song, “Suddenly”? “My God changed me, I’m not the same. And, He did it, suddenly….” In catching up with a dear friend, I soon noticed that the common theme on the call was the fact we both had experienced some “suddenly” moments since we last chatted. Suddenly, a health issue turned out favorably. Suddenly, he came into the picture. Suddenly, the deal closed.
After speaking with her, it “suddenly” dawned on me that its in God’s power, purpose and plan to change a situation…suddenly. After speaking with her I also realized that she possessed that “suddenly” expectation and that I lacked it. My tone had wavered between doubt and great expectancy, while she remained elevated in her excitement for her next “suddenly” moment.
That call served to remind me that God is not just an “on time” God, He is a “suddenly” God. In the next breath something can change in your life for the better. Suddenly your prayers can be answered. Suddenly your pain can be relieved. Suddenly you will no longer feel depressed, anxious or bitter. Suddenly your child will come home. Suddenly your finances will be restored. Suddenly you will meet your divine mate. Suddenly you will start a family. Suddenly your marriage will be restored. Suddenly all of God’s promises will come to pass.
The question is, “Are you ready for your ‘suddenly’ moment?” Oftentimes, we are so focused on praying for a change that we are caught off guard when our “suddenly” moment comes. Get prepared for your moment….you don’t want it to be that you were so focused on your desire for a change that you missed the change.
So stay encouraged in knowing that your “suddenly” moment is just around the corner. Live in expectancy and give glory to the one who deserves it when it happens. Matter of fact, give glory to Him in advance, since you already know He is the one that will give you your “suddenly” moment.
“And, he did it…suddenly. And, he did it…suddenly.”
Walk in faith. Live in love.
