Have you ever had a moment where you did or said something completely out of character that was mustered from a place of strength you didn’t know you had?
Maybe you faced down a fear or spoke supernatural wisdom to a broken heart…
God’s idea of strength is totally different than the world’s view on strength. God cherishes the humble in heart, the poor, sick and needy. He actually admits that he uses people’s weaknesses to demonstrate His strength.
For my strength is made perfect in your weaknesses.
I absolutely LOVE this about Jesus. In God’s eyes, things aren’t what they seem to the naked eye.
We hear stories on the news all the time of people acting courageously in seemingly impossible situations.
A man risks his life rescuing children from a burning building.
A young woman lifts a car off her father that he is pinned under.
Society tends to gloss over these stories as a minor occurrence and we tend to forget them just as quickly as we hear them, resuming the course of our normal life….
…Or maybe you do take particular interest in miraculous stories for the “feel-good” factor.
TV and immediate access to entertainment has allowed us to become:
1. complacent with the supernatural
2. watchful but not participatory
I am challenging you as a Christian to further examine, ponder and research these real world events to see if you can find God moving in some of them.
Also let’s give Him thanks for His care, kindness, generosity, mercy, protection and provision but most of all for His love and leadership in our lives in the midst of crises.
Lord I could never thank you enough for Jesus, the friend and Lord and Savior of mine that took on all my shame and guilt, all my misdeeds and follies on the cross and gave me eternal life in return. His body was killed but His soul is alive. Help me and those of this generation have a faith and passion for you Lord that is burning and active In Jesus Name Amen.
Just as God made a literal land pathway for the Israelites to cross the Red Sea to escape from their former slave masters (the Egyptians), God is alive, well and active today.
Jesus died and rose from the grave for our salvation.
I pray that these things would still cause your heart to swell and marvel at God’s character and awesomeness. Don’t allow yourself to grow ungrateful or unimpressed with the greatness of God – If you lean in close to Him He will receive you and envelope you in His arms time and time again. We can trust in His faithfulness.
What little miracle(s) is God working in your life right now?!
Invite the Lord into every area of your life!
Nothing is impossible with Him.
To God Be the Glory Forever and Ever Amen.
