Have you ever faced a Big situation? Maybe a seemingly impossible one. One that you had no control over. Nevertheless, the event would have a significant influence on your life. You asked for the opportunity, but it came before you were ready. If you were observant, you would have noticed that things were falling into place. That’s when the negative thoughts began to turn into the positive — seeing and believing the opportunity that is happening before your eyes can leave you breathless.
Breaking the mold of the past and plotting a course for the future can be exciting and overwhelming. Your dream was right in front of you. You didn’t see it coming. Boom, it happened. It was staring you in the face.
Now it’s decision time. Do you move forward or do you keep your foot on the brakes? New territory is just over the horizon. Hopefully, you put your foot on the accelerator, and you accelerate slowly. As you gain confidence, you press down the gas peddle a little bit more. Looking around, you realize you can handle this. God is giving you the direction for the journey. Now the scenery is good. Real good.
It is here you realize God has been preparing you for this. He has been working out the details. The Lord has been busy for months to get the circumstances in place. He had to get other people in the right place to help you to move forward. When you stop and think about it, God is an awesome God. He has been redirecting your vision, coordinating the help, and circumstances to make your dream come true.
Remember the verse, “all things work together for the good of those who love God” (Romans 8:28 HCSB). The critical word — the action word — the foundational word is “love.” Loving God will help you get past the harsh and hurtful times.
The open door of opportunity is before you. You know that the all-powerful hand of God is leading you. It’s up to you to hold the hand of God and not let go for the new adventure that He has planned for you. The Big situation is in the controlling hand of God.
