Leave Room for God
When it pleased God . . . —Galatians Galatians

As servants of God, we must learn to make room for Him-to give God “elbow room.” We plan and figure and predict that this or that will happen, but we forget to make room for God to come in as He chooses.

We are empowered and become even more excited about the power of our God and our engagement when we hold our expectations of God with a loose grip and open palm.  This becomes even more essential once we realize  that we are in the middle of a Miracle Delivery. DJR

Would we be surprised if God came into our meeting or into our preaching in a way we had never expected Him to come? Do not look for God to come in a particular way, but do look for Him. The way to make room for Him is to expect Him to come, but not in a certain way.

God is always with us when we are connected. How He chooses to manifest Himself can be an exciting expectation. He can show up “like a hurricane” or as a soft breeze on the meadow…..depending on how He sees our needs and our need for His blessings. JDV

No matter how well we may know God, the great lesson to learn is that He may break in at any minute. We tend to overlook this element of surprise, yet God never works in any other way. Suddenly— God meets our life “. . . when it pleased God . . . .”

Keep your life so constantly in touch with God (connected) that His surprising power can break through at any point. Live in a constant state of expectancy, and leave room for God to come in as He decides.

We can remind ourselves that as long as we are connected to God and expect Him to manifest Himself, He can and will surprise us OR give us the courage and spirit to wait. However, if we choose to “hurry Him along” on our own, we tell God we have taken over and have no need of His manifestation. When that occurs, He cannot manifest Himself in our lives or circumstances. JDV

How can we avoid taking over? How can we stay patient and grow strong in our waiting? We stay connected…..daily, hourly and moment by moment and expect His manifestation to come anywhere at anytime from anyone and everyone.  AND we live in expectation of His hurrican or breeze.JDV
