Good Morning Friends & Welcome to Thirsty For Christ Thursday!
If you have been reading our blog for long, you know we love the devotionals written by Sarah Young – most especially “Jesus Calling” and “Jesus Today”. So this morning we want to bless you with a recent devotion from “Jesus Today”, in a format you can even print and hang by your desk as a reminder:
I just love the imagery that is derived from those last few sentences: ‘When Christlike goodness collides with worldly vileness, be on the lookout for miracles! The collision of spiritual opposites creates atmospheric conditions that are conducive to My powerful interventions.‘
Those words give me a visual of storm clouds erupting into miraculous lightening strikes.
You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate your awesome power among the nations. Psalm 77:14 NLT
One thing to take from Ms. Young’s devotion is this: “Be on the lookout for miracles.” If you are told to be ‘on the lookout’ for an approaching train, you would be expecting that train to come around the corner at any moment! So the same we should be in being on the ‘lookout’ for God’s Mighty Hand at work!
As the psalm above says, He is the God of great wonders, and our faith in Him should reflect our belief that nothing is impossible with Him.
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” Matthew 19:26 NLT
Be expectant of the miraculous in your circumstances!
