“Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written.” John 18:25
Wonder how many pages could be written of the things I’ve done in my lifetime, the things that count for Christ? The fact is, and I’m being real here, “greater things than this shall you do” has not happened in my life that I’m aware of and I think I’d of noticed if it had. So what’s lacking?
Search my heart, Lord. See if there be any wicked way in me. Purify me. I really want to know why the signs, wonders and miracles aren’t following me, because I really do believe.
Perhaps it’s because there has not been a demand placed on the supernatural. Why do we need something when we can just charge it, buy it, go to the doctor? We’ve become such a self-dependent society that we just don’t need what God has to offer until we do. It’s not until we get to the end of our means that we cry out to Him.
I’m running to you God, not the medicine cabinet. When I’m in pain, I call out, “Your stripes! Your stripes! They were for me! Thank you!” When I am down for the count, You lift me up to win. You’ve made me more than a winner! This year for Christmas, I give You the only thing I have, all of me. There’s nothing I want from You that You haven’t already made provision for. I’m satisfied in just wanting more of You. More compassion for the lost, broken and hurting. All for You, Lord.
