I was reading an article this morning and this verse just jumped out of the page and slapped me in the face! I love this and what’s more I believe this:
- Habakkuk 1:5 – Look…and watch–Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you”
How exciting to think that God will continue to astound us. On Sunday we were looking at creation and that is amazing in itself but I think in many ways the works God is going to do in our day are going to astound us so much more in a different way. Just trust and believe, ask and receive.
We are living in the last days of the last days, what more can I say? Look around, watch, be amazed at our God who works in ways we will never understand, his plans too creative for my narrative, his thoughts towards us too numerous to absorb, his transforming power never failing to amaze and confuse as his actions collide with our expectations, prayers answered with faultless precision, how completely satisfying to see his provision as God continues to defy our understanding of limitations proving that with him nothing is impossible, look and watch, be totally astounded, work for him with unbounded energy and at the end of the day your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, your body exhausted but your eyes sparkling with joy, deployed by God to do his work, putting in the footwork of a faithful servant, fervently pursuing a heavenly calling, not knowing but believing that God’s works are even greater, exceeding all we could be told, withhold nothing from your God as he works in power to astound us, be serious, watch, receive, trust and believe.
