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.
