Today as I was driving a route I take frequently back and forth to work each week, I came up on a road closure sign with a detour marked. As I turned and drove this new stretch of road, the Lord spoke to me and said, “I’m going to show you a new way.” I was considering what He had just spoken in my heart when I realized this detour I was on was actually a much nicer and faster way of reaching my destination. What I first thought was a hinderance to my progress was actually a better, more efficient way of moving forward!
While there are detours in life that are meant to completely divert us away from the place God wants us to go, there are some detours that I believe are God ordained. If you find that a road you’ve been traveling on is now suddenly closed, don’t get discouraged! It could be the Lord is about to take you a way you’ve never been before, a way that is far better than you could have ever imagined!
I just feel the Lord on this just now, to say, We are in a season of great shifting from one place to the next. God is releasing new strategies in this hour, new directions, new alignments and some realignments that will lead His people right into the place He has for us, right into our destiny moments. What has seemed like has been far off is now at the door! We are entering in, in Jesus’ name!
