Need doesn’t follow a schedule. How often do we dismiss the chance to help another that God lays in front of us because we have more pressing business to attend to. At least, that is how we rationalize it. While it is true that we do have obligations that must be met, there are also many times when God asks us to change our plans so they align with His. An opportunity to help is truly an opportunity to encounter God.
1. Can you think of a time when you were certain God was calling you to help another but you kept to your schedule instead? How did that turn out?
2. On the other hand, can you think of a time you kept that divine appointment? What was the outcome?
Challenge: This week, watch for an opportunity to help someone, even if the timing doesn’t seem right to you. Trust in God’s agenda rather than yours.
