it's amazing


I close out the week with a shorter than normal devotion built around a simply phrase that has run through my mind a lot this week.  It’s amazing.  I am referring to the things that I have seen God do this week.

It all started with a young man accepting Jesus last Sunday at church.  We have been praying for him, for Josh, for a good while.  A bit later in the week Josh texted me a message that his children’s mother is close to accepting Jesus as well.  This really is amazing.

Our team, including several volunteers, have been preparing for the arrival of a mission team that will be framing walls at our new campus next week.  I have walked through the building many times.  The word “WOW” has come out of my mouth often.  It really is amazing.  God is making our dreams come true and positioning our church to be able to bless more and more people.

Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.

How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them.

I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by. And in your anger, remember your mercy.

God is doing so much.  It is incredible to see the lives He is changing.  It is one at a time as we count, but it really is all over the world that God is at work.  As followers of God we are to acknowledge what God has done and tell others too.

I am amazed at the way He loves me and others.

I am amazed at the miracles He does.

I am amazed at how God gets the attention of people.

I am amazed at His grace and how He extends it so much.

May God use us to help others know His amazing love and all that the truth God reveals.  By walking closer to our God we will be amazed even more.  What God is doing around us to telling others the same.  It’s amazing!

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.

Thank you for your prayers and support as our church grows and our new campus is prepared for our move their in the future.  If you would like to help with the evening meals or in any other way, let me know.
