Have you ever had a holy disruption? Let me define it for you...
Holy: set apart, dedicated to God, sacred, spiritual.
Disruption: an intense breaking away, the act of breaking or bursting asunder. Intensive force.
So a Holy Disruption is a breaking away prescribed by God, being set apart in an intense breaking, or (my favorite) an interruption by God for His purpose.
A holy disruption can rock your world and begin in a very negative way! I think of Joseph being sold into slavery or Esther taken into the harem. But it could also involve the supernatural such as Moses seeing the burning bush or Saul being blinded by a great light. Interestingly, there were several holy disruptions where women were told they would become pregnant with promise—Sarah & Mary. Holy disruptions are life-changing and usually affect the rest of your existence.
I want to encourage you today. Your world may have been rocked by what appears to be a catastrophe. But what if it’s a holy interruption which will result in God fulfilling His purpose through you? Joseph didn’t know he would rule the nation when he became a slave. Be still. Give thanks. Look for God’s purpose for your life in this thing.
“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
I Thessalonians 5:18
