God Moments

Ps 138:3
3 The moment I called out, you stepped in; you made my life large with strength.
Isa 30:19-20
19 Oh yes, people of Zion, citizens of Jerusalem, your time of tears is over. Cry for help and you’ll find it’s grace and more grace. The moment he hears, he’ll answer.
Dan 10:12
12 “‘Relax, Daniel,’ he continued, ‘don’t be afraid. From the moment you decided to humble yourself to receive understanding, your prayer was heard, and I set out to come to you.
1 Peter 5:13
13 The church in exile here with me — but not for a moment forgotten by God —

We all experience life in small, sequential moments. Although oftentimes too busy to notice, the moments of our lives sneak in, do their work, and creep away leaving us forever changed. The birth of our children, the death of a loved one, the purchase of our first home, our first kiss, young love…..all of these moments and experiences are times that forever etch into our memories. The Encarta World English dictionary defined moment as “a short time: a very short interval of time, a particular instant: a particular instant in time, or present: the present time.”
We can live in past, present, and current moments. Many times the moments pass us by unnoticed, unannounced, and underappreciated. The question for the day is, will you pause to take in a divine moment today? The Bible is full of examples of God working to experience a moment with creation. The marriage of humanity and divinity is not a new phenomenon and neither is it antiquated. From the time God created with His spoken word, He desires to speak creative, life altering transformation into our darkness.
I encourage you to notice the very short intervals of time today where God breathes agape love, acceptance, and direction into your situation. It may be a very short moment where you can glimpse into the supernatural, but you will walk away knowing your day was interrupted by deity.
