Defining Moments of Uncertainty

Defining Moments of Uncertainty

When a young married couple found themselves having a baby in a cave. A moment of uncertainty.

When a broken woman ran into the Savior King at a water well. A moment of uncertainty.

When a young boy stood up with a sling and shot to fight a giant to protect his nation. A moment of uncertainty.

In moments of uncertainty we often feel overwhelmed, unfinished, unable, and often incomplete. Uncertain moments often lead to confiscation or protection, stagnation or transformation, stifling fear or uprising courage.

The enemy likes to work in our uncertainty. He likes to paralyze us. Cause us to fear. Make us question our identity. Shake our security. Doubt our destiny. Question our dependence. He wants to tip the pendeleum his direction. He wants us to lean toward defeat and destruction. He desires we give up on ourselves and our Savior.

But when we find ourselves in a moments of uncertainty, I invite us to TIP the other way.

Trust in God.

Investigate his Word.

Pray at all times.

TIP towards courage. TIP towards God’s protection. TIP towards transformation. TIP the scale and stand on the unmovable foundation of Jesus Christ.

God doesn’t see a moment of uncertainty. He sees a moment of definition.

A moment to define your dependence on God, your desire to see him move, and your destiny to follow him in. When the enemy comes back around to remind you of your uncertainty, TIP the other way and ask the Lord to help you walk in a defining moment instead.

I will lead the blind by ways they have not know,

along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;

I will turn the darkness into light before them

and make the rough places smooth.

These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.

Isaiah 42:16
