Sacred Serendipity!

Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder. (Isa. 29:14) 

Seren-dip-ity--- the dip of the serene into the common responsibilities of life. Serendipity occurs when something beautiful breaks into the monotonous and the mundane. A serendipitous life is marked by "surprisability"  and spontaneity. When we lose our capacity for either, we settle into life's ruts. We expect little and we're seldom disappointed. 

Though I have walked with God for several decades, I must confess I still find much about Him incomprehensible and mysterious. But this much I know: He delights in surprising us. He dots our pilgrimage from earth to heaven with amazing serendipities. . . . 

Your situation may be as hot and barren as a desert or as forlorn and meaningless as a wasteland. . . . But all I ask is that you . . . be on the lookout. God may very well be planning a serendipity in your life. 

The Finishing Touch 

I love unforeseen surprises! 

Granted, serendipities are far and in between, but they do happen. Do we have any idea of when they will happen? Not really. Do we have any idea of how it will happen? Again, not really. The serendipitous moments of our lives can manifest themselves in any number of ways. What's important to understand is knowing whether the serendipitous moments come from God or not. Yes, it's also possible to experience a moment that is apparently serendipitous at first (or on the surface), but eventually turn into an event that can result in you falling from the faith.

Knowing the difference of whether God is the One behind the serendipitous moment or not requires discernment (and lots of it). A sure-fire way of knowing that God is involved in that special moment is the immediate peace you have about the situation. The peace won't be easily explained because it will just overwhelm you beyond simply feeling good about it. There would also be a very firm conviction in your spirit. When the enemy is behind the moment, there would be a very brief moment of hesitation. You would not be at peace. The motivation will be more about what you get out of it instead of lifting up the name of Jesus and how the serendipitous moment will benefit the people around you. 

My dear friends, YOUR serendipitous moments is on its way if it hasn't happened yet. I strongly encourage you to reach out to God every single moment of your life in anticipation of that special, unforeseen moment that will not bless you, but also bless the many people around you. When it happens, give God ALL the praise, glory, and the honor in Jesus' mighty name! Amen? 

Thank you so much for reading this far friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' precious name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!. . . . :-).
