"Now while he was serving as priest before God when his division was on duty" - Luke 1:8
How often do we look long and hard for a job, a car or an apartment only to finally come upon what we need while being busy with life? Quite often we stumble into great discoveries while focused on the necessities of daily tasks. When we least expect it... God Surprises us.
God regularly blesses His people as they are busy in His service. Rather than stepping aside and searching for God's will, we learn that as Zechariah filled his regular post, God met him with a wonderful answer to prayer. When he least expected it ... God Surprised him.
Are you willing to patiently work for the Lord and wait for His provision this year? While you fulfill your calling in work, family and church, God is working behind the scenes. In His time, long pursued blessings will arrive in the midst of daily service, my friend. Be prayerful and faithful and when you least expect it ... God will Surprise you.
