Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
Have you ever had a ‘wow’ moment? You know, something happens that’s totally unexpected that just blows your mind? Well, I feel like that’s what God’s getting ready to do. He wants to wow us.
If you’re at your lowest point, scraping the bottom of the barrel, needing a breakthrough miracle like never before in your life, you’re right at the place where God can wow you. You see, if you were able to do it, you wouldn’t need the intervention of God so that’s why I say, He has you where He needs you to be so that there’s no way on earth anyone will get glory but Him.
II Kings 4 tells a story of a widow who was deep in debt and about to lose her boys. The prophet showed up and asked her, “What can I do to help you?” Elisha asked. “Tell me, what do you have in the house?”
“Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied.
So he instructs her to gather as many empty vessels as she can get, borrow from neighbors (who she probably owed already), shut yourself up in the house and begin to pour from your flask of oil until they’re all filled. So she did. She obeyed and got paid.
What would have happened if she had overthought the command? Reasoned out the impossibility of THAT ever happening? How many of us, because we just couldn’t ‘see’ how that could ever happened, have talked ourselves out of our greatest miracle?
Listen, I firmly believe that if we would simply spend time in Gods presence, listen and obey even when it makes no sense, not only would we see breakthrough for us, but we’d position ourselves to be part of breakthrough for others. I have no problem looking foolish, acting foolish or being foolish if it will bring glory to His Kingdom.
I’m ready for a wow day!
