Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, Luke 2:13
In our Moms in Prayer group several years ago one of the leaders picked the attribute of God that He was God of the Suddenlys. There are many incidences in scripture where things occurred quickly, suddenly, before people knew what was happening. This particular verse today is one example of several verses. Do a subject search for the word 'suddenly' and see for yourself how many times it appears.
I think God is trying to get the point across that we need to expect the unexpected. Be ready. Be alert. Keep looking up.Don't be caught unprepared. God is on the throne and He has a bunch of sudden things prepared for us.
One of the verses besides today's highlighted one that comes to mind is Matthew 2:44 which says "So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him." In other words He will come back 'suddenly' with no warning. Many times in life things suddenly happen we are unprepared for. The one thing to make sure of is to look to Jesus and rely on Him to get you through life's 'suddenly' moments.
PRAYER: Thanks Lord that you are there for me when moments suddenly occur and catch me unprepared. I know you will come back in a sudden moment too to take believers back to Heaven with you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
