I have this attitude of logging-in to my addictive corner – ThyPreciousJewels to read the message for everyday whenever I get to the office in the morning. I do this after settling down before I begin any day’s work. The topic for yesterday was “Right Place; Right Time”. It was so expository and I was blessed. In the sixth paragraph, the last two sentences, the writer shared “Lord, place me in the right place at the right time for a divine connection to the miraculous.” I’m highly expectant because I know that I’m bumping into my expected miracle in a short while…glory (claim it if you believe it)! I claimed it, because I believe it and continued with my day’s activity. It was a great day for me. I felt refreshed, happy and alive.
After the day’s work, I closed and into my car I went. Unusual as it may seem, the road I take home was free. I enjoyed the free road and decided to enjoy the ride by running faster than I would have normally because I was in a hurry to go get something. The shortest route was the only option I had.
While enjoying the ride with Jim Reeves’ song blaring from my car stereo, my phone began to ring. “Oh who could be calling?” I retorted as I don’t pick calls while driving. I picked this CALL against all odds. The information I got from the caller was straight and direct. Without thinking twice, I reversed and negotiated the next turn, away from my supposed short route such that the longer became the only option.
I remembered the article I wrote a week ago on “A Miracle?”. This clearly taught me another great lesson. Don’t be rigid. Be flexible at times. Yes!!! God saved me through that call and so many times, he allows us into situations where he wants us to change some things in us. Being flexible sometimes doesn’t mean you are not principled. Some of us have built so much of a barrier around ourselves ignorantly either by our behaviour, character or by our “so-called” principles that sometimes we may be heading to danger and not know it.
That short route was the wrong route and the time I was there was the wrong time as well. My believing and claiming that prayer worked for me. Oh yes it did because, that CALL was what I needed to take me to the right place at the right time and save my life from harm and my family from tragedy.
I decided to pick that CALL against my driving principles. That doesn’t mean my driving principles have changed. It just tells me that to continue to enjoy “safe-driving”, I should put my idle hands-free to use. Who knows how many more calls would come in to save a situation.
That CALL saved me and everyone connected to me in one way or the other.
What are those principles that you have like mine that can put you in harm’s way in the future?
You don’t have to change them, be flexible enough to reason and amend them.
I just did!
God bless you!
