Have you seen Him?

….Are You Looking?
Today I’m offering a gentle challenge: Be on the lookout for God! As Christians we know that His hand is on our lives. Actively seeking draws us closer to Him. But sometimes His work is subtle.

In our hurried Third Millenium lives it is easy to overlook His presence. Maybe no sea has been parted for you lately; no bush has erupted into flames before your eyes. But nothing in our lives is too small for our huge God.

It could be, if you’re not feeling His presence, that you’re not paying close enough attention. Consider this example:

You have an crucial meeting at work, first thing in the morning. You’re prepared and eager to present your information to your team. Definitive decisions will be made based on the meeting’s outcome. It’s important.

But it’s one of those mornings. The dog has an “accident” on the rug. Your car keys have disappeared. Your brother calls just as you find your keys…and it’s not a conversation you can put off. By the time you’re finally in the car, you’re 15 minutes late.

And then something unusual happens. All the signal lights are green. The freeway is clear and moving at full speed. Somehow, you arrive at work on time despite all the morning’s delays.

Somehow? or Godhow? We make better witnesses when we’ve seen something to report. Next post I’ll share some techniques for looking more carefully for him.

2 It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that
the Most High God has performed for me. 3 How great are His signs, how mighty
His wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; His dominion endures from
generation to generation.
Daniel 4:2-3 (NIV)
