Dailies ~ In His Word
April 18, 2019
Some people like to talk a lot about Divine Connections; you can take it or leave it but there are certain things that happen in our lives with a purpose that is beyond our control or ability to set up. Today I was reading a quick read in my study Bible and found a few notes I left for myself last year. They encouraged me where I was right now, so I decided leaving a date was smart!  There are often connections between the Word we read one day and years away that almost burn into our souls with truth!  What I mean is the reality is so amazing that we cannot believe we had written that a year ago when what we are going through at the moment fits it in detail… what an amazing God we have.
I we think about it His Word is full of things telling the people about Jesus and then when it happened they were like “Wow what’s going on?”  Even Paul who had studied the scriptures to be a Pharisee was amazed when he realized that Jesus wasn’t just some man claiming to be a prophet and leading people astray but that the Old Testament Scriptures actually told him of who Jesus was. He did not realize this until Jesus appeared before him.  When you meet someone or you read about something in your notes from a study or whatever it can make a connection with you today as if God had just spoken it to you personally. Tome that is what a divine connection is; when God brings someone or something into our lives that progresses us in the path or plan He has put before us.
So today I found two sets of notes, one with a page number that I was already reading this morning in Luke 6. At and around the Beatitudes, it was talking about new things, changes and life in general going how God wanted it, and I read the side notes of my own plus the noted places the Nelson Study Bible has in it. These lined up with some notes I had in my notebook from this year, but the ones in my bible were dated last year. So to unveil what it was, God was showing me that He had a plan. In the Luke 6 Beatitudes God talks about how no matter where you are and what you are walking through you are blessed.  
Then He lifted up His eyes toward His disciples, and said: “Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you, and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of Man’s sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven, for in like manner their fathers did to the prophets. Luke 6:20-23
Heavenly Father, thank you for showing us that there is good that can come from pain, sorrow, the poor and, destitute, You will bring joy, hope, laughter and fullness! In Jesus name, amen.
