Daily D – Luke 7:9
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:
a helper who is always found
in times of trouble.
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:
loving look at me, your High God,
above politics, above everything.”
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.

1 Chronicles 22:9-13 But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. He is the one who will build a house for my Name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ “Now, my son, the Lord be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the Lord your God, as he said you would. May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the Lord gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
