The Lord replied, ‘Look at the nations and be amazed! Watch and be astounded at what I will do! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.’ -Habakkuk 1:5
These words were spoken to the prophet Habakkuk when he cried out to God wondering where he was in his day and his world, which was filled with violence and corruption. God responded with these words, “Watch and be astounded at what I will do!” Isn’t that an amazing statement? I can picture God sitting on his throne saying, “Just wait and see….this is gonna be cool!”
While I am striving to live with abandon, I am presented with so many opportunities to do amazing things. I believe that God puts before us each day, situations where we have the opportunity to be a blessing to someone, to do something amazing in the name of Christ. Something that will be glory to His name. God is moving, he’s not waiting around seeing what we will do, but we are part of his plan. I want to look for those opportunities that come before me each day. Say a kind word to someone, help someone with something they are struggling with, pray for someone, work hard and cheerfully at something that is not fun. I plan on doing something amazing in my day.
God is in charge and he has a plan. Even when we in the midst of trouble and God seems silent and distant, he is moving. His plan is in motion. Just watch and you’ll be amazed at what God will do. This is gonna be cool!
