If I said, “God would stop the earth for my sake,” would that sound arrogant? It might, unless, you understood I’m not talking about me; I’m talking about His immense love. How far do you think God would move for you? Some might respond: “That’s fine for you and others, but I don’t deserve that kind of love!” Now that’s ridiculous! His love is not the type you can deserve, much less, earn. He freely gives His love. But then He is love (see 1 John 4:16-19). It’s His nature! This is not pie in the sky talk, this is Bible.
Romans 8:31-32 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not His Own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Do you know how many different pieces God has to move at the precise time in order to bring your prayers to pass? He has to move through circumstances and people, regardless of their willingness to agree with Him. Who knows what variables through which God navigates just for you. Your existence is proof in of itself. Try looking up the odds of you even being born. You’re a full blown miracle! Have you read Romans 8:28 lately? And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. Consider this: our loving Father will take those circumstances and events that don’t look good at all, and use them to benefit us. That includes bringing our prayers to fruition. Is there proof in the Bible of His stopping the earth for someone? Try this on for size:
And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the Lord will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the Lord the third day? And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the Lord, that the Lord will do the thing that He hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees? And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees. And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the Lord: and He brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz (2 Kings 20:8-11 [read verses 1-7 for full context]). Check out Joshua 10:1-15.
Take a look at Genesis 37-50 which gives the account of Joseph’s life, and how God used circumstances that looked the polar opposite of what He revealed to him. Can you imagine, God gives you dreams which show you will one day rule over your entire family, and the next thing you know, your older brothers sell you into slavery? Not to mention throwing you into a pit just prior to that, along with conspiring to possibly murder you. And as if slavery isn’t enough, you’re falsely accused of a crime and thrown into prison. Of course more takes place, but this should suffice to paint the picture. It looks like you’re at the bottom to stay for the rest of your life. Then suddenly, God moves and you’re on top. That’s Joe’s story in a nutshell. God literally used everything Joseph experienced to place him in a place of authority which would lead to his saving his family and an entire nation from famine. Not to mention his ruling over his family.
Okay, one more: how good did it look when Jesus was on the Cross? You know the rest of the story! Perhaps, it’s time for you to receive His love and allow Him to move heaven and earth for you. He wants to bless you, the Cross and Resurrection of our Lord reveals this truth.
Romans 15:3-4 For even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached Thee fell on Me. For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
