Hello beautiful you, I’m sure that isn’t the title you expected to see today. Isn’t today meant to be short story friday? Well, yes it is. But recent happenings around me have necessitated that I write this post. For those that have been on my neck to finish the Story ‘Dreamer’ please pardon me ehnn😊 soon enough we would get to the end…use this one to learn patience😅…Just kidding.
I woke up this morning with some thoughts on my heart, I was pondering over some testimonies I had heard and shared recently, and I was saying to God “Father I want more than this” let me explain. You may have heard something like this..
“I’m thanking God for my life because I had an accident and broke an arm but I didn’t die” or
“I’m thanking God because armed robbers raided my house and took everything but I was unharmed.”
In these situations these people were not thanking God FOR the calamity because it wasn’t from Him anyway. But they were thanking God IN their distress because He is still God no matter what.
Now I’m a firm believer of 1st Thessalonians 5:18 which says “in all things give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you”. And I loveeee to give thanks.
But I got to thinking that sometimes, things are so bad around us but we still try to look for something to attribute to God and gives thanks for in that bad situation, sometimes we aren’t even sure if it’s God working through it, but we just want to thank him sha because scriptures say we should….and I was reading about the wonders of God when he brought the ten plagues upon Isreal and how He made it so CLEAR that it could only have been him. I mean who would even think that it was a coincidence that a plague would selectively affect only the Egyptians and spare the isrealites, or what science would explain how a sea would part in two and then collapse back just at the time the Egyptians stepped in. Who would explain how a ruddy young boy like David would slay a giant like Goliath with a stone, or how God would conquer an army of thousands with just three hundred men.
There are times that God clears the doubt of men by making it inexplicably obvious that He’s the one at work. And Just this morning I craved for this. I dont just want to thank God for narrowly escaping harm, I want to thank Him for carrying me out of it on Eagles wings…you get my point right?. …I just really needed Him to do something that leaves even a blind man without a doubt that its God at work.
I wanted to hear things like “the brakes of my car failed and it came to a halt on its own, no accident” or “thieves came to my house and when they saw me all they could do was drop their weapons and start praising God” after all, when Saul went after David, his intention was to Kill him, but he arrived and saw the prophets prophesying and he too started prophesying.
And then this evening God showed up and did something that cleared MY doubt. There’s no rationalising it, I know He’s the one at work. As if to tell me that He had heard my exact thoughts earlier today. I LOVE THIS GOD.
GOD works in the little things around us EVERYDAY and please never stop being grateful in EVERY situation. But i just want you to also never forget that He still does miracles that make all men stand in awe and say THIS MUST BE GOD!!..
And don’t worry Dreamer part 4 would come up tomorrow….😊 see ya!
