How do you know when God is ready to break through your rock and a hard place situation? You know because He will invade your ordinary with something extraordinary. He will come to your normal with something abnormal. He will create a scenario that doesn’t make sense.
When God creates a scenario that doesn’t make sense, it is not supposed to make sense. Don’t ignore God showing up in a way that you can’t explain. The reason you can’t explain it is because it is God showing up in it. The Bible is replete with examples of when God was getting ready to move in a rock and a hard place situation and the thing that He did was show up in a way that human understanding couldn’t explain.
My best advice to you is that if you are in a wilderness, or if you are between a rock and a hard place and can’t find a good way out of what seems like a never-ending situation, look for God to show up in a way that you can’t explain. His ways are not your ways. His thoughts are not your thoughts. God is not like you or me. If God were living in the era of Soul Music, his favorite song would be, “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time?”
Didn’t I show up in a way that you couldn’t explain?
That’s what God does best. Look for Him, keep the faith and watch Him explode your ordinary with His plan for you.
(John 11, Psalm 9)
