Rising up to the Occasion

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.

Rise to the Occasion simple means “to perform very well in response to special situation, event or challenge.”

Every occasion presents itself differently to us. Some occasions come as joyous, happy occasions. Others are sorrowful, mournful occasions. We find in life that at some point in time we will be faced with very different type of occasions. Some we have planned and prepared for, others have caught us off guard. And while they may have caught us off guard we serve a God who is never surprised or caught off guard by our circumstances. He knows the hardships we face, the difficulties, and struggles, yet He is prepared for them, and has even taken the time to make sure we have directions on how to handle these occasions. He feels our pain and sees every tear we cry, yet he also rejoices with us in our gladness. He has prepared His Word to rise to every occasion, to stand by us no matter what life hands to us. He promised he would never leave us nor forsake us, that he would be there in the flood and the fire. It is the Holy Spirit’s job within us to rekindle the Word that has been planted inside of us. To remind us that he is there to rise up in every occasion, and to walk beside us when no one else will. So no matter what occasion you are in the midst of, know that God is already rising to the occasion, to stand in your behalf. Know that He will “perform very well in your situation, event or even challenge.”
