Bob advised me a few go to to Vietnam the place he met with a pacesetter of an underground Christian church. This chief, who had spent a big a part of his life in jail for his faith, advised Bob many tales of the expansion of Christians. Roughly 1 million believers met in hidden huddles throughout the nation. “What everyone desires is to see God transfer,” the pastor defined.
And isn’t that the will of your coronary heart…to see God transfer in your life and within the lives of these you like? Jesus reminds us, “My Father is all the time at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working” (John 5:17). At all times at His work. At all times. And but, will we anticipate to see it? Are you and I prepared to lift our expectations and anticipate seeing God’s glory via His work in our lives immediately? Are we prepared to lift our expectations to expertise moments of sudden glory the place God makes His presence identified?
I sat in a gaggle of 55 Child Boomers as Bob shared about his expertise with this Vietnamese pastor. As he closed, Bob opened up the ground for others to inform of a time after they skilled God transferring of their lives.
“Once I was sixteen…” one started.
“Once I was twenty-seven…” one other chimed in.
“A number of years in the past…” nonetheless one other shared.
I used to be struck. We should always have all been waving our fingers and excited to start with these phrases… “Yesterday God confirmed me…” “This morning God revealed to me…”
Why do now we have to go thus far again into the archives of our lives to search for that one time we acknowledged God transferring in our lives? I dare say that we miss the glory moments that flash earlier than us and even linger round us as a result of we don’t anticipate them to be there.
I wish to problem you to make an inventory. Get a pocket book or a journal and write A Sudden Glory throughout the highest. Then start chronicling how God makes Himself identified to you immediately…and tomorrow…and the following day.
“I’ll exalt you, my God the King;
I’ll reward your identify perpetually and ever.
Daily I’ll reward you and extol your identify perpetually and ever.
Nice is the LORD and most worthy of reward;
his greatness nobody can fathom.
One technology will commend your phrases to a different;
they’ll inform of your mighty acts.
They are going to converse of the fantastic splendor of your majesty,
and I’ll meditate in your great works.
They are going to inform of the ability of your superior works,
and I’ll proclaim your nice deeds.
They are going to rejoice your considerable goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness. (Psalm 145:1-7 TNIV)
That may be a social gathering I’d prefer to attend! David acknowledged what God was doing in his personal life. He listened to what God was doing in different individuals’s lives. After which he invited all to affix collectively and inform concerning the glory moments in a grand celebration. Merriment at its finest. “Let the redeemed of the Lord inform their story!” (Psalm 107:2 TNIV).
And I’d love to listen to yours!
Expensive Father, open my eyes, my ears, my coronary heart. Assist me to see You working in my life immediately. Please don’t let me get so concerned with the busyness of life that I miss the Supply of Life. I’m wanting. I’m listening. I’m paying consideration.
