“Divine Intervention”- the phrase many of us know so well, but hate to hear. Many times, a divine intervention does not come as a pleasant thing. It can feel like rejection- not getting a job you applied for, a relationship that you worked so hard for not going how you expected, or simply just something not going as planned. We all hate to fail and love to succeed & anything that doesn’t go our way, or even happen on our timing can make us feel like the world is coming to an end. But what if….what if something not going as planned is not a failure, but a blessing instead. What if that amazing job you wanted would’ve replace an even greater job that was to come, or that promotion or relationship that you so badly wanted to work out would eventually overshadow God’s purpose for your life and conceal you from your amazing future. It’s times like these where this phrase comes into play:
The word divine is defined as “of like God.” Intervention- well, we all know what that means. Many times we can feel like something not working out is bad but most times, the one thing that we wanted to happen so badly not happening is the best thing for us. In regards to our own lives & wants, we seem to only look at one piece of the puzzle- that job, that career, that friendship- and use it to define or build what our lives should be. When this one thing doesn’t go as planned, feelings of grief, sadness, & anger can begin to overlook the great things that God has for our futures. It is times like these that we need to remain faithful and fearless. More times than not, God will not allow something to happen because it’s not aligned with his plan for our lives.
“There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under the heavens..”- Ecclesiastes 3:1
This is what Divine Intervention is- God simply interfering to protect you from something that wasn’t meant to be. To protect you from something that could not only alter your future, but hurt you in any way, shape, or form. Divine Intervention is Gods way of promising something better. So, the next you feel failed because something didn’t work out, or go as planned, just remember there’s always something better around the corner. Stay Fabulous!
Until Next time!
