Expect great things!

Our God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. He is great and mighty. We read that people feared God seeing His great works. The people served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who survived Joshua, who had seen all the great work of the Lord which He had done for Israel (Judges 2:7). In the Old Testament, the works of the Lord were seen by all people. God brought plagues on the Egyptians to free the Israelites. He split the Red Sea for the Israelites to walk on dry ground. God drowned the Egyptians who tried to do the same so that the Egyptians who threatened them were no were to be found. God gave them victories after victories. God made the walls of Jericho to fall. God split the Jordan river for them to cross. God guided them by a pillar of cloud in the day and a pillar of fire in the night. Seeing all these awesome works of the Lord, people trusted in the Lord all the days of their life. Yes, when God does mighty things, we see His greatness in them and we worship Him in awe.

Once I read about Alexander the great, who went about conquering many cities. Whenever he conquered a city, he would say to the head of that town to build his statue and place it in the centre of the city. Once, he visited those cities as he was eager to see how they were faring. As he went from one city to another he was so glad to see his statue at the centre of every city. But, in one particular city, his statue was missing and this made him very angry. Immediately, he called all the elders of the city and shouted at them, “Where is my statue? Why hasn’t it been placed here?” They calmly replied, “Sir, please give us a moment.” And then they raised their voices and shouted, “Alexander”. Immediately, a bunch of boys came running to the centre of the city where everyone was standing. And the elders looked at Alexander and said, “Sir, we have not built your statue but, we have named our male children after you and made you a living legend.” Alexander was called Alexander the great because of the great victories he won and he was adored by people.
God was the One who made him great and God can still do great things for you too. In the New Testament, God did wonders through Jesus. Unlike parting the sea or bringing walls down, Jesus went about healing, delivering and blessing people. The greatest act of God was the salvation of souls through Jesus. Jesus died and paid the price for our redemption on the cross. We read that love is the greatest power of all. "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love" (1 Corinthians 13:13). The greatest love the world has ever seen is the love of Jesus. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends (John 15:13). God's love for you is the greatest and He who gave His life for you, will He not give everything else for you and also do great things for you? He will surely do wonders for you so that you trust in His name all the days of your life.
Prayer:
Loving Lord,

I thank You for speaking to me through this word of blessing. Thank You for Your promise that just as You did mighty things for Your people, do great things for me too. One word from You is enough to change my situation and make me great. Let Your name be greatly praised through Your wonders in my life. This I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
