Life Interruptions= Divine Interventions

Hello ,

Thank you for surfing the Trinity Wholeness Ministries Blog

I am so excited about the next 4o days as we journey through the book of  Jonah to look at how God can take what seems disappointing , devastating and possible hopeless and turn the situation around full circle in victory.  Have  you ever hit a pot hole and your car or bicycle went reckless back and forth in the road? Well life unplanned situations  can do that too, but thank God for the word, prayer and strength to stand in faith. 

You may want to go to college . Perhaps you are in the middle of a career or want a new career and feel God leading you in another direction – what should you do? Run like Jonah or submit to the cross like Christ?

During the next 40 days grab your bible, a pen , and journal and watch what happens when you pray, plan and prosper spiritually, mentally, and physically during this study.  The book we are studying is Life Interrupted by Priscilla Shirer.

I.   Lets begin with scriptural text:

“For since the world began, no ear has heard, and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!”  Isaiah 64:4 NLT

II. Questions to ponder:

1.  What are you facing now that appears to be something completely different from what you thought you would be doing in life right now?

2.  Do you feel like you are running from God or toward him?

III. Quiet Time “silence for meditation” Rest in his presence , worship him, then take a moment to be silent  in his presence.

IV. Journal Reflection: Write about what you experienced during the time of pondering, and meditation   on scriptural insight. Where do you go from here?

Comments: Post what you gleaned from the first chapter of the book or share a brief testimony.

    In chapter 1 I like the tenacity, faithfulness, stubbornness of God to the destiny He has for us. He uses whomever and whatever to draw us into line with His plans. Even people we don’t think have anything to do with what we believe we are destined for. Love the unpredictableness about Him…most of the time (smile).

      I have never looked at God as being stuborn in order to ensure that we are lined up with his will for our lives. In essence it is another way of looking at the sovereignity of God.

    I will get the book later. The scripture (Isaiah 64:4) was conformation of what the Holy Spirit has been telling me lately. For the past five or six years everything seemed to have been put on hold, for one reason or another. I even thought some things would never happen. Now I have a sense of anticipation. I am waiting with a calm, peaceful assurance that no matter how things look God is in control and He always does what is best for me.

      Often we have our lives planned out a certain way and don’t look at the interruption as an intervention as a way of redirecting us toward the plan He has for us before the foundation of the world. Jonah thought he was running from the call but ran into fulfilling God’s will for his life. Delay dosen’t not mean denial. Use the time of what appears silence to grown in grace and strength.
