Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. John 12:9
When I do marvelous things there is no other response than amazement. When you drive through the mountains, walk along the sea, travel down rivers and watch the sun set in glorious splendor; your only response is amazement.
When you feel your heart beat, hold a tiny newborn, watch athletes run swift and learn of the great intricacies of the human body; there is no other response than to be amazed.
When you walk through the most difficult of circumstances, when your heart is mended, when you were kept from trouble, when you barely escaped death’s door; you can only stand in awe.
When you stand in the valley of the shadow of death, you know my presence, for I am your protection and your footing. When you walk through the raging waters and do not drown or walk through the fire and do not burn. You can only be amazed.
When you’ve gone through the worst. When all is lost. When the darkness feels so overwhelmingly dark; my promise to you is that the darkness is not dark to me, in fact the darkness shines like the day. When you find breath and moments of peace as you walk this road; you can only see my hand and be amazed for I’ve not abandoned you.
My name is made famous in your life. Share the stories of my hand and as you remember you will be amazed just as all who hear.
I pray that you will share the stories of God’s miraculous intervention in your life.
I pray that you will know His hand is on you in the most dark of times and in the times of rescue, creation and mystery.
I pray that the name of God will be made famous in your life and that many may come to him as a result of His miraculous work in your story.
Think of a time when you were in awe of God.
Take a short moment to thank God for His work and then think of a friend who could use some encouragement. Take them out and share your story with them.
