Daily Devotional – 11/8/17 “Watch God work!”

I love to watch my Grams cook, especially during the holidays. She will have pots covering every burner on the stove, cutting boards on the table and pie crusts waiting to be filled. And while she is preparing dressing, sweet potato and egg pies for the oven; we will be busy chopping onions and bell peppers and silently watching her work. I knew not to interrupt her because an interruption caused delays and a delay meant I would have to wait longer for my request to taste test. So, I would do my part, only stopping when she interrupted me. Why am I sharing this? Well, many times we make a request of God and instead of waiting and watching Him work, we constantly interrupt. Truthfully, we don’t mean any harm, we just need to hear but I’ve come to realize that interrupting Him can cause a delay. Understand, I am not talking about praying but the, “why me God,” the “when me God,” the “where my blessing at God,” the “where is my husband God,” the “where is my wife God,” or the “how God” questions can delay what we’re waiting on. Do you not trust God to do what you’ve asked? Do you not believe He can do what you’ve been praying for? Then why not watch Him work?

Yes, I know you are eager but causing an interruption and allowing God to interrupt does not have the same kind of outcome. Our interruption can cause confusion, whereas God’s interruption can cause confession. Our interruption can cause depression but God’s interruption can cause deliverance. Our interruption can cause things to halt but God’s interruption can cause things to happen. God can interrupt our formalities to force our faith to kick in. God can interrupt our tranquility to test our talk of trust. God can interrupt our happiness simply to see if we can actually handle the harvest. I don’t know who this is for today but God isn’t intentionally ignoring you, He’s working on your request and He needs you to trust Him in His silence. He’s working, beloved, you just need to watch Him work it out. Can you do that? Yea, it’s hard, “But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.” – Micah 7:7
