Lately when my spouse out of the blue turned ailing, I mentioned to somebody, “Complicated conditions are irrelevant in relation to the delivering energy of God.” And I do very a lot consider that to be true.
There are a lot of examples of the delivering energy of God in all types of conditions recorded within the Bible. Maybe some of the acquainted is the parting of the Crimson Sea for the youngsters of Israel. The state of affairs was certainly advanced, hopeless to say the least, and apparently, there was no answer.
However the delivering energy of God intervened in a most dramatic approach. The waters parted they usually walked throughout on dry floor. Are you able to think about? Dry floor?
Some 40 years later, the youngsters of Israel noticed waters parted they usually crossed the Jordan River, at flood stage, as soon as once more on dry floor. The Scriptures additionally inform us about years later, when the nice Prophet Elijah struck water together with his mantle and the water parted, permitting him and Elisha to stroll throughout, you guessed it, on dry floor. Then, a short while later, Elisha did the identical factor, placing the water together with his mantle, and strolling throughout on dry floor.
It’s completely baffling to our human brains how water might be parted, permitting somebody, or a large number of individuals, to stroll throughout on dry floor! 4 occasions within the Scriptures we see the delivering energy of God bringing that to cross. Had been there different occasions? We do not know.
We do know that on one event God didn’t half the Sea of Galilee so that Jesus may cross on dry floor. As a substitute, Jesus merely walked on the water! What?! This superior show of the ability of God is astonishing to examine within the Gospels.
Now think about what it was like for the apostles to see it occur firsthand! And add to that, Jesus invited Peter to stroll on the water! And Peter did, for a short second or two!
These 5 data within the Bible remind me of the verses in Isaiah the place God tells us His ideas should not our ideas, and His methods should not our methods. He goes on to say, “For because the heavens are increased than the earth, so are my methods increased than your methods, and my ideas than your ideas. (Isaiah 55:9)
In different phrases, God has options we have by no means even considered.
That is why I do consider advanced conditions are irrelevant in relation to the delivering energy of God. Odds do not matter. God has options.
There are quite a few data within the Bible clearly exhibiting the delivering energy of God. While you learn these accounts it’s apparent God not solely has options, however He needs to assist His individuals. And that tremendously encourages you to consider and belief Him.
Throughout these previous a number of weeks my spouse and I’ve been very aware of quite a few the guarantees of God recorded in His Phrase. Our prayers echo these loving guarantees. Most particularly, the next two verses have been each very encouraging and really inspiring.
Concern thou not; for I’m with thee: be not dismayed; for I’m thy God: I’ll strengthen thee; yea, I’ll assist thee; yea, I’ll uphold thee with the appropriate hand of my righteousness.
For I the LORD thy God will maintain thy proper hand, saying unto thee, Concern not; I’ll assist thee.
