I am reading this awesome book by Joseph Prince called, “Unmerited Favor.” Now, I am just being honest, when I first looked at the cover I kinda decided right then and there what I thought about the book. I felt though, that I should at least crack it open and read a few chapters with an open mind. I can admit when I’m wrong. I have to say that this book has been life-changing for me. God has used this book to speak to my heart and reveal a whole new way of thinking and believing, and is bringing freedom to areas in my life that so desperately needed it.
I was reading last night, and the author was sharing about “right happenings.” You know, those moments where you are in the right place at the right time. When you reconnect with someone that you haven’t seen in ages, or when God protects you from being somewhere at the wrong time, when someone needs help and you just happen to be there. In the Hebrew language, the word is “qarah,” which means “to encounter, to meet (without pre-arrangement), to chance to be present.” It means “right happening.” Psalm 37:23 says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.” I believe that when we ask God to order and direct our daily lives, that He will supernaturally cause us to be where we need to be. One “right happening” that God sets up can accomplish more in our lives than months, years, or even a lifetime of our striving and struggling to make something happen.
Today I want to challenge you to ask God for His “right happenings” in your life. Trust in His love and goodness to bring good things to you-good relationships, good resources, good health…He wants us to be blessed so we can be a blessing! Let’s ask Him to order and direct our steps, to and rest in the knowledge that He causes all things to work for our good!
