When God Turns The Tables

1 minute

1st Week of Advent

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 29:17-24

What makes living in this world so difficult for those who serve the Lord are those who have chosen not to serve Him. If you take a look at all of the evil that is being perpetrated in the world today, it is coming through those who do not wish to serve God, not those who are trying to please Him. How difficult it is for the wheat and the tares to share the same soil!

In today’s Scripture reading, however, the prophet Isaiah speaks of a time when God is going to come along and turn the tables. At that time, He will remove from the earth all who sin and who cause others to sin. All who remain on the Earth will walk with God. What a glorious time that will be! A time of joy and world peace! But how challenging life can be in the meantime!

Is there a situation in your life right now in which you are patiently waiting for God to come along and “turn the tables?” Sometimes He keeps us in difficult situations for a season in order to produce godly characteristics in us and to make us more fruitful in Him. That situation won’t always be in your life, but as long as it’s there, God intends to use it for His glory and to make you something that you would not be otherwise!

What is He teaching you about His power and His grace as you go through your difficult days and wait for Him to “turn the tables” in your life? What do you perceive is being produced within you as a result of this difficult time? Perhaps you’ve already come out of your situation, and you can honestly say that the person who went into that situation is not the same person who came out of it. Write down your thoughts, reflections, and what you learned when you found yourself “going through.”
