Expecting Great Things
How many times have I looked back in my life and seen God's divine interventions that made things happen? Man could not have done that. I think about Peter walking on the water towards Jesus. Jesus changing the water into wine. Jesus raised the widow's son from the dead. Jesus stilled the storm. Jesus made the paralyzed man walk. Jesus raised the ruler's daughter from the dead. Jesus opened the eyes of two blind men. Jesus healed an invalid man. Jesus fed at least 5000 people with only five loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus cured a deaf and mute man. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. He filled the disciples net full of fishes. He split the Red Sea. He rose from the dead! Jesus can surely take care of some things for us!
We face miracles all the time. Pregnancies, births, our bodies, the sunrise, sunsets, stars, oceans, seeing a flower come from a seed, death, and so many other things. Because of what all Jesus does, I have learned to expect great things. How could I not? God has worked in my life abundantly exceedingly above what I expect. Ephesians 3: 20, "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us..." That is why I tell you I no longer ask for specifics I just ask God to show off.
When we expect great things we start seeing God's plans working. Lamentations 3: 25, "The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him." God is good. All the time. Everything He does is good and wonderful. Isaiah 30: 18, "Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!"
