A Prophecy of Hope

Over the past decade of daily prayer, I’ve often wondered that God has never sounded the alarm in my heart instructing us to stockpile, build a stronghold or otherwise prepare for tribulation. This morning, He spoke of the coming shaking but it was in an entirely different tone.

The Prayer Matrix

Image from: http://www.catch22.net/software/matrix-screensaverFor some time now I’ve been praying about and grappling with the deeper meaning behind Jesus’ miracles. Of course there’s the obvious: Jesus heals. But I just knew there was a deeper application to His miracles since that’s the way God works. Nothing is ever wasted.

Basically, we were to stay within the fences. All the cool stuff was off-limits.

What does most of the world see when they look at the Body of Christ today? They see a mass of people who claim Jesus as Lord but remain unchanged in temperament, in the way they conduct their lives.

Something to Ponder

God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plans His footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm. Deep in unfathomable mines of never failing skill, He treasures up His bright designs and works His sovereign will. ~Hymn and Lyrics by William Cowper William Cowper, author…
