When you read the stories in the Bible, stories that tell of God’s great moving power in the lives of people, what goes through your mind?
Do you think within yourself of the possibilities of if you were in Abraham’s shoes, or what it would be like if you present watching David fight Goliath, or maybe if you were there with the three Hebrew boys plus One in the fire, or with Daniel in the lion’s den?
Each of these stories is unique and beautiful in its way. Each story tells how God took ordinary individuals and did extraordinary things for them and through them.
As I contemplate the stories, or I should say, the recorded events of these lives in the Bible, I see phenomenally mighty works done.
I see God moving faithfully in these lives who said “yes” to Him; in the lives of those who chose His will over their own.
As extraordinary as those events and lives are that are recorded, I am reminded that God is still in the business of working out remarkable things in surprising ways through people’s lives today.
Hebrews 13:8 reminds us, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” And that with the Father, who does all things perfectly, there is no “variableness, neither shadow of turning” James 1:17. The faithfulness and moving of God that was present when the pages of the Bible were written are still very much alive and active today. It may not look like walking on water, speaking dry bones to life, or walking through the Red Sea on dry ground (but, if God wills, those miracles can come to pass again). Perhaps they look like someone just taking brave steps to step out into the unknown and experience with God something they could have never imagined. Maybe it may look like a repentant soul rising out of the ashes and coming back to life spiritually. Or even adversity parting the way because God commanded it to hush that you may receive safe passage.
The point is, no matter how God chooses to move today, He is still moving. The things He is doing in the lives of present-day people are a reason to get very much excited.
Their stories of deliverance, help, and another chance are phenomenal miracles to them and us, and we can rejoice because we know the Father’s hand, we read about moving in those historical lives, is still moving today.
After all, we are here today, also. And, if we took the time to reflect and review the pages of our personal history, we know that we have a reason to praise God for His moving hand in our lives, as well.
God is still in the moving business today! You may consider yourself to be ordinary. But remember, it is the ordinary who God chooses to do the most extraordinary through. “Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered” Psalm 40:5.
