There is a gas station I like to use in my neighborhood. Whenever I go there, I like to enter in through one entrance, with my car pointed in the direction of the other entrance, (on the opposite end), which I prefer to use as my exit so that I have a straight shot out of there (I am a straight shot kinda person 😎😊).
This one day, as I drove in to get some gas, the only available pump meant I had to turn my car around, away from my preferred exit. My linear self was not happy 😏. While you obviously can get out through the first entrance, it is a little more challenging to merge onto the main road from there (another reason why I prefer 'my exit' - there is a method...😉).
As I looked on, GOD pointed out to me that, because HE is Omniscient, HE knew what lay ahead (that I could not have used my preferred way out), and that is why HE turned me around, in anticipation of the blocked exit.
Wow 😮! How amazing is that!!!
I should not have been surprised though, because GOD says in Revelation 22:13,
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (NIV, biblegateway.com);
and HE also declares,
So, if you find yourself going in the opposite direction to where you had intended, it might be that GOD turned you around, away from a 'roadblock'.
HE loves You, and HE's got Your back 😊!
Be Blessed 🙏,
