Nothing Takes Me By Surprise

April 15, 2015

“I’m a romantic. I have a plan. But I’m also a realist. The plan unfolds slowly and not without what seems to you to be irreparable glitches. But know this: nothing takes Me by surprise, and nothing can stand for long in the way of My plan.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 242

Questions for Reflection:
• What situations in your life right now seem to be “irreparable glitches,” either due to your own failures or challenges in your circumstances or the impact of another’s decisions?
• In light of the reality that God is not caught by surprise regarding the difficulties you’re facing, what hope is available to you?
• Take time to invite God into your current situation, and ask Him to open your eyes to the opportunities He is giving you to know and reveal Him in your present circumstances.

    I am struggling right now with God’s love. God talked about how as a result of David sleeping with Bathsheeba in secret, he would punish David by having someone sleep with his wives in public. How can he use this as punishment and claim to love those women. In fact how can God allow Godly men to take multiple wives and never clearly let them know that it is against his will? ________________________________
