The Great Works Of The Lord God – Part 2
So why are there many people and churches these days that do not see and experience the God of miracles ? And they do not see the great works of the Lord today. God has not changed. He is still the Almighty and All Powerful, Living God. The God who is mightily at work in the world today.
Why So Many People & Churches Do Not See God’s Great Works
There are many reasons that many people and churches do not see God do great works in their midst. And in their community and beyond. Sin, rebellion, unbelief… are some of the reasons.
Many Christians have turned away from God in their heart. To the point at least that God is not their first love in their hearts. They still go to church, and even participate and give some money. But they have lost their “first love” in their hearts for Jesus.
Another Reason For Not Seeing The Great Works Of The Lord
Another reason is that many people need to adjust their lives to where God is working in order to join Him in His work. Far too many people are not willing to do this these days. It’s what happens when Jesus is no longer our First Love, and our Treasure, and our Passion.
We need to let go of our own will, our own visions, our own plans and ideas of how we can serve the Lord. And we need to whole heartedly follow God’s will and plans and vision. God is God, and we are not.
Another Reason We Do Not Experience God’s Great Power And Works
If we want to see the great works of the Lord, we need to be willing to pay the cost of joining God in His work. There will always be a cost. Sadly many people are not willing to pay it. When Jesus is no longer your First Love, you will not be willing to sacrifice for Him and for others. You will not be willing to pay the cost to join God in His work and mission. However, the cost is always worth it to be able to see what God is going to do.
Jesus paid a great price in order for us to have a personal relationship with Him. And to have the privilege of serving Him. We owe it to Him to be fully submissive and obedient in every area of our lives. Including in our ministry for Him. We owe Jesus everything.
God’s Invitation To Join Him In The Great Works Of The Lord
In Psalm 46:8 God says “Come and see the works of the Lord.” God wants you to join Him in His work and mission of helping people to have a reconciled personal relationship with Him. He wants you to see His glory and His great works. But you need to be willing to go wherever He wants you to go. And be whatever He wants you to be. And do whatever He wants you to do.
God has a plan and a vision for your life and ministry. It is up to you to seek God with all of your heart to find it. And then to be willing to do whatever it takes to become a part of His plan and vision. Then your life will be full of purpose and meaning. And true joy and abundant life.
“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.” – John 15:8
