I’m in St. Paul, Minnesota for the next two weeks presenting a teaching series. In just a few short days I’ve already met some amazing people. One is a young man named Ronald. Ronald is in the process of deciding what his life’s work will be. One evening we chatted over dinner about his possibility of becoming a nurse, physical therapist, or even a pastor. The conversation with Ronald reminded of several times in my life when I’ve been uncertain about my next move. The next day I received word that Ronald was in a car accident. He survived. A couple of scratches from the airbag were his only injury. When I finally had I chance to see the car it was proof that nothing but divine intervention allowed Ronald to walk away. He said that when he was losing control of the car he yelled out, “God save me!”
Reality sinks in.
We can plan for the future all we want but tomorrow is not promised. Divine intervention is what allows us to make it from one day to the next. We are reminded that our lifespan is short even if we live to 80 or 90 years (Ps. 39:5)
You have been given the gift of life, how will you make the most of it today?
