“Now a day before Saul’s coming, the LORD had revealed this to Samuel saying, ‘About this time tomorrow I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin…” (1 Sam. 9:15-16)
Sometimes the Bible gives us little hints at the power of God in unexpected places. The story of Samuel’s anointing of Saul as king begins with the phrase “Now a day before”. Before Samuel knew he was coming and before Saul knew he was leaving, God was orchestrating a plan. Two people that didn’t know each other were about to be brought together by Jehovah’s awesome foresight.
A good way to make your brain hurt is to sit back and think about what God is planning for your life that you don’t know about. How will He direct your steps tomorrow? What people will He connect you with to let your light shine and share His good word with? What opportunities to grow and to serve are awaiting just around the unseen corner of tomorrow’s clock?
Forget about your plans – get excited about His!
“The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.” (Pr 16:9)
