Looking for It

July 29, 2008

This past weekend, I helped host Mark Lowry’s “Be A Miracle” tour at our church.  The tour is based around Mark’s latest album, of which “Be A Miracle” is the title track.  At the show, he shared a number of rather funny stories about how each of us need to be the miracle in the lives of those around us.  When we love and help meet the needs of others – miracles take place.  Lives are changed, needs are met, and people see a reflection of Christ in us.  Miracles.

I am a firm believer in the present day move of God.  God heals, today.  God speaks, today.  God gives revelation, today.  I also believe that there is a movement among the young generations today where God is rasing an army of intercessors and worshippers for this vastly important moment in history.

But . . .

I want to issue a thought to you (not necessarily a warning, but a thought)

What are you looking for?  It seems to me that some of my fellow believers are roaming to and fro for signs, wonders, and miracles (which I DO believe happen today) and are consumed with only that.  The problem with being consumed with only one aspect of something is that you tend to miss the wonder of the rest of it.

Sometimes our sign is seeing a deficient area in our local church family and filling the need instead of complaining about it.  Sometimes our wonder is an encouraging phone call at just the moment you need it. Sometimes the miracle is you choosing to be used by God to love your neighbor as yourself.

Let’s maintain our focus on lavishing God with our worship, obeying His commands, and carrying His love to others, and help meet their needs.  I believe when we do that, the miracles of all types will take place!

John 20:29

 

“Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

  1. Great post. Anytime you get fixated anything other than Jesus then you are setting yourself up for trouble.
    Love you.

    Thanks for seeing with clearer eyes than most of us…your posts always bring Jesus into brighter focus.
    Love to all of you.

  3. Thanks for the post. I am making an effort to attempt to feel needs of those around me. Similar to the everyday miracles you talked about Sunday night.
