There are times God brings you to a place of blessing disguised as change. The blessings of God are not obvious some times because they are hidden behind the many natural challenges and demands of life. If not careful, your eyes end at the challenges and never look further to the blessing.
I encourage you to embrace the changes God is bringing your way by looking beyond the challenges and seeing the hand of God in all the situations you find yourself today.
SCRIPTURE READING: Mark 6:1-6 Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him. And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, guide me to look beyond the challenges. I choose to see Your hand in these changes that You’re bringing my way, amen.
