One divine opportunity and decision can be a start to a great many things – I went to Seminary. It wasn’t the Seminary itself that changed me. But God was simply honoring what happens when a person walks through a door He has ordained. I wasn’t even “full of faith”. I went with a spirit beaten but strangely optimistic, a heart depressed but yet beating.
But that is enough for God. That is enough for Grace. That is enough for Jesus. How do you think Zaccheus felt when he climbed a tree wondering what would he do if he saw Jesus? Wondering what Jesus would do if He saw him? Would Jesus do nothing at all? Or everything instead?
“For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matt 6:21-33, NIV)
Literally, all things, will be added.
It is the blessing of the LORD that makes rich, And He adds no sorrow to it. (Prov 10:22, NASB)
How do you know when blessings come from God? When it gives Life to you and the people around you, and then it doesn’t cause sorrow. When it becomes part of the process that allows you to forgive the world, and especially the people those who let you down, and when it allows you to forgive yourself.
