What would God do to get your attention?
For those who tend to look up a display in the heavens - luxury
For those who tend to look down – a divine host - labor
For those who tend to look around – a – longing
God will go to any lengths to reveal His will to a person who is listening.
Zechariah & Elizabeth -
It is frightening to think that God’s presence might startle us in the middle of our worship.
The answer to our prayer can be unexpected
Often the realities of our own lives overshadow the supernatural things that God can desire to do.
They were homeless – living in the fields.
They worked the night shift.
Why should God have chosen these shepherds to see this marvelous revelation. There probably wasn’t anyone else up. God has a way of blessing His people. He has a special eye for those who are less fortunate than others.
The Winds of Fate
One ship drives east and the other west
With the selfsame winds that blow.
'Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales
Which tells us the way to go.
Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through life:
'Tis the set of a soul
That decides it's goal,
And not the calm or the strife.
