Psalm: 78. 32.
“For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.”
The psalmist had been speaking of all the miracles of the Exodus. How they had seen the mighty hand of God, yet not believed to enter the promise land.
The Church today has the same problem. We see and recognize the miracle of Salvation, but sin still, the sin of unbelief.
It is a plague in our midst. We want to believe, God is still the Almighty, the Creator and Ruler of all.
Yet, we do not see the signs and wonders, the miraculous things of the Bible. Why?
Most of us are content, we know we are saved, we tithe, give to the poor, go to Church at least Sunday mornings. We serve the Lord.
Like the Hebrews in the desert. “Moses, you speak with God and let us know what He wants.”
Unfortunately, even the Church leadership believe the Lord is now silent, He has written the Book, it is enough. The miraculous died out with the Apostles.
“Just hold on till we get to heaven. That is all we can do, it is enough.”
It is not enough.
We need to touch the hem of His garment. We need to come boldly to the throne of grace, to receive mercy and grace in our time of need.
We need to be dissatisfied!
We need to dig into the Word of God, learn to walk in it’s truth. Know the scriptures, deny not the power of God, but seek Him, His will, His power and might.
He is the God that heals, comforts, sets free, even raises the dead.
We need to be dissatisfied, if our prayers are not answered, we need to be dissatisfied, when we are in want.
“The Lord is my Shepard; I shall not want.”
We need to set our face like flint, to seek the Lord. Not just for the warm fuzzies of knowing we are His, but to come to the place of employment.
Where the Lord, uses us to fulfill His will.
He healed all that were afflicted, He desires that all would come to a saving knowledge of Him. He wants the world to wake up, look up and believe.
Isaiah: 41. 20.
“That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.”
How will they believe, when we scarcely believe, ourselves.
The power to heal the sick, even raise the dead is available, to whosoever will press in to the Holy of Holies, to receive it.
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”
We must be willing to fight, the devil, our contentment, our sloth, our unbelief, our satisfaction of who and where we are.
We must “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Allow the Holy Spirit to work the will of God in our lifes. Become a dispenser of His love and grace.
These things and more shall you do. (John 14).
FEAR NOT, ONLY BELIEVE….
