What would happen if we lived expecting miracles to happen every day?
What would happen if each morning before we even got out of bed we asked God, “What do you want me to do today?” “I’m up for an adventure!” I’m giving you my time to do exactly what you tell me to do, whether I am at work, school, Uni, at home or the shops; wherever.”
What would happen if we were willing, and looking out for people in our day who we could bless and pray for?
What would happen if we understood that being available like that doesn’t mean we are God’s “work-horse”, but instead we are a conduit for His love, power and presence?
That we simply let ourselves flow along with whatever Holy Spirit is doing; not forcing anything, not getting into toil and striving, but allowing the goodness and love of God to flow out of our lives to bless others wherever we are.
What would happen if we understood fully who we were, and what we have when we have invited Jesus into our lives? That we could live knowing that our hearts don’t condemn us any longer because we are walking each day seeking to please Jesus and not ourselves. And that when we pray we believe and are confident that He is going to answer and act because of who we are to Him.
“Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God, and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.” (1John 3:21-22)
“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
How different would our lives be? How different would our relationships be? What impact would and could we make, and how many more miracles, God encounters, and absolute blessings would we see unfold right before our eyes? How exciting each day would be!!
I think that’s how Jesus wants us to live. In fact I believe He longs for us to live that way. And today, tomorrow and the next, I’m seeking to do just that. How about you?
Here are just a few of God’s words to encourage you in your adventures today. Have fun.
