There have been so many ‘Woah!’ moments for me while studying God’s word. I thought I would share some with you! (cause what’s this blog for anyway?)
I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. Job 19:25
I just love how Job declares this before God ever redeemed anything in his life. Job was sitting in the ashes (literally) but yet looked through the eyes of faith. That is so crazy considering everything Job lost. (I have questioned God when I almost lost a sharpie! Stop judging me.)
He saw through their duplicity and said to them, “Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?” “Caesar’s,” they replied. He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” Luke 20:223-25
I always thought this was about money. But let me ask you a few questions!
Why did Jesus ask whose image is on that coin?
Jesus goes on to say how we should give God what belongs to God. So where is God’s image inscribed?
Ring a bell? YOU!
Girl (or boy!), it is you! You have been sealed by the Holy Spirit and you are made in His image. He wants your surrender! You belong to Him! Oh and you are inscribed on the palms of His hands as well! (It is really true love, friends!)
“Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” John 6:9
Did you read that word? Or was it too small?
It says ‘Five small barley loaves and two small fish’.
I wonder what would have happened if this boy thought he had too little to offer.
There is nothing too little or too small that Jesus cannot use. Are you keeping your little/small away from Jesus? Do you think you have nothing to offer? Trust me, Jesus can do a whole lot with your little and small. Just surrender and you will see a leftover sized miracle.
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” John 2:5
I wonder if the servants thought Jesus is going to teach them how to make wine when His mother told them to listen to whatever He told them to do. But Jesus told them to pour water into those pots. How crazy!
Every time we listen to whatever Jesus tells us to do, we will see the natural become the supernatural!
Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. John 12:24
Jesus talks about His death here but just for a second, what needs to die in your life for things to come alive? For me, it’s this…
Death to my busy schedule.
Death to my ego and pride.
Death to my comfort.
Death to every other activity that takes away my time with God!
What needs to die in your life?
Please let me know if I should post more of ‘Woah’ moments!
I would be so happy to hear from you!
