When I’m in a hurry, and I want to quickly grab something to eat, I seldom walk into a restaurant because I know it’s gonna take time. In situations like these KFC or McDonalds is the order of the day. Why ? I know they are not going to take more than a couple of minutes to process my order.

The point I’m trying to make is, all of us like and enjoy some amount of predictability, it gives us a sense of control and helps us plan. Often in our walk with Jesus, God likes to disturb this predictability. I call them “Divine Interruptions”.
Consider the case of Moses, it was another day at the office, feeding his flock and caring for them. Without any warning or announcement God shows up in a burning bush. Moses was divinely interrupted. As the cliche goes, the rest is history.
On another account, Abraham was visited by strangers. As a part of his cultural responsibility, the father of faith entertains them and prepares for them a delicious meal. It later turns out, that these strangers were angels of God on assignment. At that moment Abraham’s ordinary day was divinely interrupted.

John and his brother were busy attending to the many demands of their thriving business. They had several things on their mind and it was another busy day at work. When an unknown man, called Jesus showed up at their office and said “Follow me”.
Their lives were divinely interrupted.
I shared three different accounts to propose to you, that God divinely intervenes in our lives in different ways. Some look ordinary and others very dramatic. Divine interruption come in different packages and they all look different. Yet, these God ordained moments of destiny are wasted because we fail to recognize it and respond to it.
Will you let God stop you today?
So, go ahead entertain that stranger who asks you for money on the road. Don’t be afraid to say ‘yes’ when God shows up unannounced at your workplace. Pray for somebody, bless somebody. Expect a divine interruption in your ordinary day. Let Jesus mess with your schedule and your plans.
Let God stop you today!
