“Disruptive Grace” by Kirk Hunt
And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
Luke 7:14 KJV
Jesus interrupted the funeral proceedings. He interfered with a solemn ceremony. Jesus deliberately intruded on the widow’s grief and sorrow.
It’s not hard to imagine the results. The mourners suddenly became dancers. The weeping widow instantly became a joyous mother. The young man sat up, wondering why he was in a coffin in the middle of the street.
Jesus’ grace is all-powerful and undeniable. When He touches a situation, nothing can remain the same. The grace of Jesus is disruptive. God doesn’t fit in a box. The master of eternity doesn’t worry about schedules.
Too often, we object to God’s grace. His Presence comes at inconvenient times. His power and provision manifests in inconvenient ways.
Think for a moment. Do you really object to what God is doing for you and in you? However inconvenient, will you refuse the grace He is pouring into your life?
Seek Him, but be prepared. He may come in an unexpected and unanticipated way. Be open to disruption. Embrace the chaos and confusion that can follow God’s blessing and provision.
Think: When His grace falls, everything is disrupted.
Pray: “Lord, disrupt my life with Your grace.”
