Divine Inconvenience

Covid-19 and lockdown have interrupted many of our plans and way of life. There are times in life when our plans don’t work out. We get delayed, interrupted and inconvenienced. It’s easy to get frustrated and fight against everything that doesn’t go our way. But, not every interruption is bad. Every closed door doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong. Every delay doesn’t mean you’re not where you’re supposed to be.

There are some things that are divine interruption, where God, on purpose, will delay us, to protect us from an accident or a bad situation. On purpose, He will close a door because it’s not His best. Sometimes, God will allow us to be inconvenienced so we can someone else in need. We have to be willing to press through those hard interruptions, so we can be in the right place at the right time for our blessing, or to be a blessing.

Today, as we grapple with life’s uncertainties consider this, the next time you’re interrupted, delayed or inconvenienced, don’t start thinking, “this is a pain. This is depressing. This is getting me off schedule.” No, get a new perspective. Look for what God is doing, because it could be a divine interruption or divine protection. Trust Him because He is directing your steps.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5–6, NIV)

Pray With Me

Yahweh, thank You for interrupting me and protecting me. Father, I surrender every area of my mind, will and emotions to You, please take control. God, use me for Your glory today, and teach me to discern Your ways and Your timing, and always to look for positives in life’s inconveniences, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
