It has seemed good to me to declare the signs and wonders which the Most High God has done for me.
God works so magnificently in our lives. He is the “God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.” (Rom. 4:17). In each of our lives, we have seen God work his wonders. I have recently been led to study this word, wonders, in the Bible. Here is part of the definition-
that which, for its extraordinary character, is apt to be observed and kept in the memory.
We have all had God do things in our lives that seem to defy explanation, something extraordinary, but God’s wonders can also be found in the everyday things. I have watched a mother fox play with her two young kits right in my own back yard (wonder)
I have seen sunsets that seem to set the sky on fire. (wonder)
But I think some of the most extraordinary wonders are simple found in obedience to the things that God has shown me to do. I would be confused about what to do in a certain situation. I would come to God’s Word and ask Him to give me guidance. He would speak to me from His Word, I would begin to practice what He shows me and it works (wonder). One of my favorite Bible studies is “Experiencing God.” Here is a quote about obedience from it.
“Obedience is the outward expression of your love for God. The reward for obedience and love is that He will reveal Himself to you. If you have an obedience problem, than you have a love problem. God is love, His will is always best. God is all knowing, His directions are always right. God is all-powerful, He can enable you to do His will. If you love Him, you will obey Him.” (pg 146)
When you come to a moment of truth when you must choose whether to obey God, you cannot obey Him unless you believe and trust Him. You cannot believe and trust Him unless you love Him. You cannot love Him unless you know Him. (pg 147)
I, myself, have come to believe that God’s wonders are so often linked to obedience to what He asks.
Moses had to step forward into that Sea in order for it to part.
Peter had to get out of the boat in order to walk on the water.
Jesus, work your wonders in and through us in both ordinary and extraordinary ways. May wen be a light that shines your love to this world. May we be guideposts, pointing many to You, so you can work Your wonders in their lives too.
Amen and Amen
