As unexpected tragedies and unexpected events happen in our lives, God answers our prayers and calls when we least expect them to happen. God is not deaf to our groaning prayers, especially “the ones that come from the core of your being” (Romans 8:26). He is coming to fulfill every desire beyond our wildest dreams.
He Knows your deep longings, your desires for His Kingdom to come, your yearnings to be “set free from [creation’s] bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” Romans 8:21
But, again, we always have to remember that:
The Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect – Luke 12:40
This is His way and His timing comes mysterious to us at most times. But He knows what He is doing. By putting out the element of surprise in His meaningful ways.
God humbles human pride, catches Satan off-guard, and wonderfully, heightens our joy when the answers come. – Luke 12:39
Sometimes God gives us a little tap on the shoulder to say, “I am here taking care of you, even though you don’t always feel My presence.” Maybe He does it through a stranger, a verse, a friend, song, text, or maybe even through a soft whisper.
God makes Himself known in unexpected places and answers our prayers at unexpected times because He wants His presence to be more than just head knowledge. He wants us to know He is with us in the big and small moments of our lives. During the season of Christmas, Jesus came to Earth in an unexpected way. He left Heaven and came to save the world by starting as a baby in a stable. Then, eventually, He lived a “perfect” life but died for our sins on a cross between two thieves.
God through Jesus (His Word) ultimately came to us in a human body in order to relate to us.
He extends his nail-scarred hand hoping we’ll trust Him to guide us through our day as He gently whispers into our frantic lives, especially in times where we feel scared and anxious.So keep praying and cultivate patient, long-suffering faith. There will be a day when you find him unexpectedly at the peak of your most desperate time(s). ”the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect” (Luke 12:40).
