Peripeteia [pronounced = "pair-uh-puh-TEE-uh"] was the Merriam-Webster Dictionary's word of the day on Friday. It means a sudden or unexpected reversal of circumstances or a situation especially in a literary work. It is a sudden turnaround. A peripeteia is a radical shift in a person or events.
In others words - it is a surprise blessing. I shared this thought with our Prayer Team on Monday evening - God can change anything and everything in an instant.
Everything that has ever happened in your life up to this moment can be radically changed for the better by the Lord. All the mess and chaos and confusion can be turned around because our God can make everything brand-new in the twinkling of an eye. That means instantly, immediately, or suddenly.
So do not rule out a sudden shift in the life of someone you have been praying for. Don't give up on a miraculous turnaround in the tough battles you have been in - some battles have been going on for the longest time. Most importantly don't give up on yourself.
At any moment, God can release a word over our lives and incredible breakthroughs can happen. One thing can change everything. Don't underestimate God. With God all things are possible [Matthew 19:26].
Stay faithful. Stay committed. Stay in holy choices. Stay within the boundaries of God's Word. Stay connected to the Church. Stay expectant. Stay hopeful. There could be a peripeteia in the realm of the spirit headed your way today. Don't miss it.
