Have you been busy?
Real busy with your day to day life, So busy that you don’t have time for a prayer for a fellow sister in Christ. You are so busy that you can’t attend that Outreach Ministry/Worship event to help out your church. So busy, that you can’t write an encouraging note to an ailing believer. Downright busy, that you can’t call a friend who is struggling in faith with the Word of GOD.
Are we busy? “Busyness” is the business of the world. We are kept to be engaged and to stay busy with our own lives to take notice and help others. Yes, “Busyness” is the business of “this world” But we don’t belong here. Do we? We belong to Heaven. That’s our dwelling.
Let us see what EL SHADDAI; the LORD who called this world in existence did…
- HE sent HIS Chief Angel - Gabriel to talk to Hagar, the slave woman who was not part of HIS big plan for Abraham.
- HE sent angels to Gideon, Manoah, Elijah, Hezekiah, Daniel (His angel Michael as well), Zachariah, Mary, Shepherds, Mary Magdalene…
OK Probably you can say HE sent Gabriel to Mary to fulfill HIS divine plan. What about others….
HE was/is/will be a busy GOD. But not busy enough to send HIS Son Jesus Christ to wait for the Samaritan Woman (an outcast) at the Jacob’s well.
In the Book of Revelation, Chapter 8 says that there is a pause… a silence in heaven when the prayers of the Saints rose to GOD.
Imagine; When GOD can take a moment to seek, to reach out, to answer our prayers to attend to our needs, we as HIS Children - the Co-Heirs of Jesus Christ should take a pause, a moment to help that aching Sister or Brother in need. You never know the LORD might have a blessing waiting for you! Remember we serve a mysteriously working GOD and HIS ways are not our ways….
Let us be a Mary not a Martha (Luke 10:38-42). Be Blessed and Be a Blessing! Amen!
