amazed at what God does

Luke 8:25 NLT
Then he asked them, "Where is your faith?" The disciples were terrified and amazed. "Who is this man?" they asked each other. "When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!"

One of my favorite things is to be amazed at what God does. Today was another one of those times as I met with two city officials.  It was so incredible to hear what God had already done.  Most of that I will share with you all later.

Ever noticed what happened after Jesus preformed miracles?  People were amazed.  They would stand with their jaws on the ground, amazed at all God has done.  One of the pieces that always gets me is how the disciples, his closest followers are amazed at what Jesus can do and has done.

It is time God's kids to begin to ask God to do miracles and move mountains.  This is the same God we read about in the Bible.  He still saves souls, changes lives and does miracles.  Ask Him.  I am.

John 4:10 NLT
Jesus replied, "If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water."

God is always in the business of changing lives.  It is not about a building or money or organizations.  God's business is the business of lives.  That means our business ought to be lives as well.  Do people have our attention?  Or are we more worried about the bottom line, or how we look, or what the building has or doesn't have?  There are people around us that God wants to touch.

Let God work in and through your life.  Ask Him to move and to change lives.  Now, focus on people.  We will be amazed at what God does!

Matthew 7:28 NLT
When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,

Acts 4:13 NLT
The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.

I pray that people will know that we have been with Jesus.  I pray that God will change lives all around us as we focus on Him and are amazed at what God does.
