“No one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 CORINTHIANS 2:9
Have you got God figured out? Have you got God captured on a flowchart and frozen on a flannelboard? If so, then listen. Listen to God’s surprises. Hear the rocks meant for the body of the adulterous woman drop to the ground.
Listen as the Messiah whispers to the Samaritan woman, “I am he—I, the one talking to you” (John 4:26).
Listen to the widow from Nain eating dinner with her son who is supposed to be dead …
God appearing at the strangest of places. Doing the strangest of things. Stretching smiles where there had hung only frowns. Placing twinkles where there were only tears.
