I Love it when a Plan Comes Together
is the line made famous in the popular series A-Team. Although quite simple, it was also quite catchy. I mean, who doesn’t love it when things work out just as planned right?!
But what about when what we planned is nowhere near working out and instead we begin to feel as though we just hit a wall? Usually at this point we lose all hope and begin to count our losses…UNLESS of course we experience an Unexpected Outcome.
Unexpected Outcomes are those things we never imagined would work together for our benefit. In fact the most famous Unexpected Outcome story is one we just celebrated last weekend.
The savior of the world is falsely accused, viciously put to death on a cross, and then buried and sealed in a tomb. Talk about hitting a wall! Those that were followers of Christ were left with nothing but a memory of the one that came and revolutionized their world. All hope was lost and as much as they wanted to believe there would be a favorable outcome their limited thinking impeded them from seeing it.
And three days later just as time had convinced them of the death of a dream and stolen the last bit of hope that remained, the Unexpected Outcome AROSE (literally)!
I’m not sure about you, but that’s the G-d that I serve!
-One who shows up with a solution at the last minute!
-One who parts the red sea and lets a whole nation of people through!
-One who brings down walls!
-One who makes the mountains low and the valleys high!
A supernatural kind of G-d…
The G-d of the Unexpected Outcome!!
Believing that Unexpected Outcomes will ARISE in your lives this week…
