Right Place, Right Time
"If I were in your shoes, I'd go straight to God, I'd throw myself on the mercy of God. After all, he's famous for great and unexpected acts; there's no end to his surprises." -Job 5:8, The Message
Every so often in our Christian walk we will find ourselves in scenarios we were meant for. Call it what you will - divine appointments, destined moments, fate - it just means we were right within God's plan for that moment in time.
Often these moments are unexpected. You are doing something totally normal, or maybe totally out of the ordinary. No matter, God uses these moments for His glory to let His light shine. This is why it is so important to seek God moment to moment, not relying on yesterday's revelation, or getting stuck in "task" mode for tomorrow. Revelation is moment to moment. So is the Spirit of God. Just like God, we too need to live our lives open to the moment.
There have been many times in my life where I've had these moments, or been faced with the consequences of not living out such a moment. I remember one time where I was sitting in church with a friend of mine and I felt like God was talking to the man near us. I walked over to him and said, "I don't know if this means anything to you or not, but I felt impressed to tell you this scripture..." I'm guessing the scripture spoke directly to him, because he thanked me profusely and walked out of church with a huge grin on his face.
Don't think that God can't use you in your everyday life. It's often these very moments that make life worth living. Have you ever been at the right place at the right time?
