By now in your life, you may have learned a few things, namely that God is the most beautiful person, companion and source in your life. You’ve learned that He makes all things new (Re 21:1-7). 

And now, it’s time to see the beauty for ashes come into place. It’s time for outward redemption, righteousness and justice. It’s time for recompense. 

And it’s time for convergence.

Convergence is the powerful action of parts coming into a new whole—God’s shalom. Convergence forges fullness of promise.

You may have seen an increase of undeniable signs as God’s time for fulfillment converges in your life. 

Maybe you have waited and waited until you’ve become fully surrendered to God’s ways in the wait. Maybe God has gotten you past all the tests and attacks. And now, it’s just a matter of time—weeks, days, hours or even minutes until the moment of crescendo, when suddenly everything shifts into a more complete new. 


Hard times are no more because the pressures that were sent to test and refine you lifted so you could be lifted. And all you see now is the open door, a beautiful expanse waiting for you. 

It’s real. And it’s of The Lord. 

King Solomon new a bit about beauty as the convergence of wholeness. He could see his temple come together over time and imagined what the outcome would look like, according to God’s plan.

As the author of Ecclesiastes, he wrote in 3:11 that “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy] . . .”

How can we not be swept up in holy awe as we experience God moving pieces to build purposed fragments into a new wholeness?

While God is converging His beautiful pieces in your life, He’s also removing the unholy bits. Because you have rejected evil, there simply won’t be room for ugly anymore. 

You may have noticed Him establishing new boundaries to protect your heart or giving you the help you need to clean up messes that have been in place way too long. 

God has been awakening you to receive better.

One morning, during quiet time, Holy Spirit highlighted Abigail twice to me within a couple of hours. When God offers us two confirmations like this, according to Genesis 41:32, it means that it has been firmly decided and it will happen soon. 

When we look at Abigail in 1 Samuel 25, we see in verse 3 that she is described as “intelligent and beautiful.” She was a woman of “understanding” and could discern things. Abigail was wise with the wisdom of God.

Also, in verse 3, we see that Abigail was married to quite the opposite. Her husband, Nabal, is described as “harsh and badly behaved.” He didn’t even display mercy during a time of mourning in all of Israel when Samuel passed (1 Sa 25:1).

This story is a revealing of hearts and how God realigns them.

God saw that Nabal’s heart was hard and that Abigail suffered as a result. God knew she had the submitted heart of a generous giver, of courage, of truth and righteous. And God was about to set Abigail free and make her life better. 

God ultimately sent her an anointed king to rescue her. David was his name. The one after God’s own heart (Ac 13:22). Someone who also knew what it was like to be devalued, disregarded and shamed by those close to him. 

Finally, Abigail had met her match and God made it covenant.

We can look at her testimony as a type of Joseph story in that what man (and the devil) meant for evil, God meant for good to develop a wise ruler. 

We can also see how it parallels with the two differing 10-spy reports and how God used that to test and separate the good from evil within the Israelite community (Nu 13-14).

God manifested His goodness to faithful Abigail by giving her a better life forward, where she would be honored as the queen He made her to become.

Friends, God will not let His beautiful and discerning ones waste away when they look to Him and choose His ways. He is about to separate His faithful ones from among the headstrong, unbelieving, selfish, hard-hearted and greedy to forge them ahead into His promises with Him. 

He’s calling His wholehearted ones out to enter into better. And not just better for themselves but also for the betterment of those for whom they will steward.

When Abigail married King David, she gained influence and authority to make a difference in the land beyond what she could do in her aloneness. Although she wasn’t perfect, she had a heart that could go and grow into the role God assigned to her.

And it was all done by God’s Spirit. 

Many of you have waited a long time to be delivered into greater freedom to help free others. Know that, no matter what you’ve endured, there comes a time when God will move on your behalf, like He did for Abigail and Joseph, to bring you into a palace time of noble service.

And when He does, you will come to know, more than ever, that you are the victorious crown that God has made you to be, according to Philippians 4:1 TPT, which says, “My dear and precious friends, whom I deeply love, you have truly become my glorious joy and crown of reward. Now arise in the fullness of your union with our Lord.”

To Him be the glory.
