“…it is the LORD’s Passover.”
Exodus 12:11b
It happens all the time…someone gets “passed over” for the promotion.  I, think that really stinks, the person deserved that new job or position!  Yet, in this passage from Exodus the Lord promises to PASSOVER the homes where he sees the blood.  Here being “passed over” is a good thing.  Maybe…just maybe…being “passed over” for the job promotion is/was a good thing.  Maybe, it is a blessing in disguise.  Maybe, it is another example of not seeing the big picture.  A time when the details are hidden in the shadows. 
Fortunately, we don’t have to know all the whys and hows.  We only have to trust.  Trust that the He knows the future.  The passover may just be the best thing that could happen. A good thing.  Afterall, He knows our character.  He knows what is best for us.  He knows our future.
And if you are thinking John must have gotted “passed over” no, he didn’t.  I read this passage and realized that the best gifts in this life sometimes don’t look like gifts at the time.  But many times, they are the blessings that are hidden in the shadows.  Maybe, just maybe…the best is yet to come!
Do you have a passover in your life?
