Luke 7:9  When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, “I tell you, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!” (NLT)

What amazes and delights Jesus? When we don’t beg for his presence when he seems far away. When we know he is already at work answering our prayers before we even utter them. When we trust him so much that he has nothing left to prove. 

This is faith. 

This is a lesson from an outsider who sent word to Jesus who was on his way to heal his servant, saying, “I am not even worthy to come and meet you. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed,” (verse 7).

Today is a good day to develop a “Just say the word” kind of faith. 

What do you long for that seems so long in coming? 

What do you believe Jesus wants that you also want but as yet see no evidence of a positive outcome?

Jesus was not easily amazed. He is amazed and delighted when we trust him even when we cannot perceive what he is up to. 

He is amazed and delighted when we begin to realize how he loves those we love more than we love them. 

He is amazed and delighted when we begin operating far from demanding his attention and arrival and start trusting that he is way ahead of us already. 

How will you amaze and delight Jesus today?

I will trust him from the bottom of my heart and thank him in advance for what he is already doing that I cannot yet see.

Our Father, today I see how you are already at work in that place of my deepest concern. You are bringing things to pass that I cannot begin to see turning in the right direction. You are lovingly arranging all things for ultimate joy. While my gut grieves, my heart hopes, and hope in you does not disappoint. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
