Have you ever noticed a pattern in your existence where you see God’s work in your life? Yesterday, he showed me how he had a hand in everything leading up to where he has placed me at this date in time. From the time I accepted Jesus as my Savior at the age of 8 until now is exactly 50 years. My father-in-law's house, which we moved into, is exactly 50 years old. Though it is old and needs to be remodeled and cleared of his excess, I love everything about it. He and I were very much alike, two peas in a pod. Until yesterday, I didn’t realize that this was my year of Jubilee! It all makes perfect sense now. Here’s what I wrote when God showed me what he had been doing.
“God gave me this house and had been preparing it for 50 years; he began when I was eight years old. This year is my jubilee! Who would have ever thought? I tear up every time I walk around on this property. I am so grateful. 🤔 Hmm, that’s the age I was saved! 😳”
What is he doing in your life? See if you notice a pattern; I guarantee you there is one. I couldn’t be his only favorite child. It’s not the material things that make this special; it’s about noticing him and what he is doing and knowing that he’s the one who put you where you are now and being grateful to him for scooping you up when he did. Even if you’re walking through a rough patch, know that he is the one who will bring you out. This life we are living is all about him; there are no ifs ands or buts about it. Glorify him will all your being.
And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, when each of you shall return to his property and each of you shall return to his clan. Leviticus 25:10
