Daily D – Luke 7:9

by | Feb 15, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

Jesus heard this and was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found so great a faith even in Israel.”
LUKE 7:9 (CSB)

People often talk about how they want to see God do something amazing. Maybe the issue here is not God’s ability or our need but our faithfulness. Faithfulness and faith are a powerful combination. God seems to show up most visibly when we need him most and desire him even more. 

The Sons of Korah knew this truth and began Psalm 46 with these words: 

God is our refuge and strength,
a helper who is always found
in times of trouble.
Verse 10 is the one we remember most fondly: 
“Stop fighting, and know that I am God,
exalted among the nations, 
exalted on the earth.”

Amazing happens when we see Jesus for who he is and our desires for what they are. When we have a God-exalting desire and cause, when we need what only God can do, amazing is much more often in the making. 

Hear Psalm 46:10 from The Message: 

“Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
loving look at me, your High God,
above politics, above everything.”
And so a centurion’s servant was healed. Jesus was amazed. All things ended well.  
Live faithfully. Live full of faith. Live amazingly.

I will live faithfully and full of faith.

Our Father, our friend Gerry talks about finding our amazing. I understand better what he means. Empower me to live so faithfully and so full of faith that amazing is ordinary. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
