EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

2 Kings 3:10-18

This is but a trivial thing in the sight of the Lord; He will also deliver the Moabites into your hand. 2 Kings 3:18

Go forward!

As we step out without any sign or sound—not a wave or splash wetting our feet as we take the first step—we shall see the sea divide and the pathway open through the very midst of the waters.

If we have seen the miraculous workings of God in some extraordinary providential deliverance, I am sure the thing that has impressed us most has been the quietness with which it was done, the absence of everything spectacular and sensational, and the utter sense of nothingness that came to us as we stood in the presence of this mighty God and felt how easy it was for Him to do it all without the faintest effort on His part or the slightest help on ours. It is not the part of faith to question, but to obey.

Are you craving a fresh encounter with God? Then expect the unexpected. God has the answer to your heart’s deepest request.

A. B. Simpson identifies the great victory of faith:

Our unbelief is always wanting some outward sign. The religion of many is largely sensational, and they are not satisfied of its genuineness without manifestations, etc.; but the greatest triumph of faith is to be still and know that He is God.

The great victory of faith is to stand before some impassable Red Sea, and hear the Master say, “Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.”

God, You are the answer to my heart’s deepest requests. I expect the unexpected today.
