Looking for God - November 2, 2015

Habakkuk 3:2(New Century Version)
2 Lord, I have heard the news about you;
I am amazed at what you have done.
Lord, do great things once again in our time;
make those things happen again in our own days.
Even when you are angry, remember to be kind.

Habakkuk 3:2(New International Reader's Version)
2 Lord, I know how famous you are.
I have great respect for you
because of your mighty acts.
Do them again for us.
Make them known in our time.
When you are angry,
please show us your tender love.


Many of us have a longing to see God work in our lifetimes. We want to see Him do mighty things and know that they are from Him. As we become weary in waiting for the bad things to end, we long for God to bring about justice and set all things right. There is so much trouble, pain and difficulty that we long for His hand to bring about relief and comfort. We want to be able to see Jesus alive and in person. We know that God has been mighty in the past, and now we want to see it for ourselves.

I believe that God is alive and well in our world today, and He is doing "mighty acts" each and every day. Jesus is newly inhabiting lives and the Holy Spirit is changing hearts and minds on a minute by minute basis. In addition, God is doing great things today in the acts of His people. Each and every good thing, every gesture that is good and decent, every act of mercy and grace, ultimately are because of Him and from Him. He shows up whenever we are in trouble, are in pain or difficulty, and in His love and mercy, He shows us His tender love.

If you are longing to see God do great things, accept Him into your heart. Let Jesus Christ be your example, and let the Holy Spirit guide you each and every day. God will show up in all you do, and you can praise Him for His "mighty acts" and know Him today!
