“The Lord said,”I am making a covenant with you. Before all your people I will do wonders never before done in any nation in all the world. The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I, the Lord, will do for you.”
God has promised to do such marvelous works in our lives that everyone we come in contact with should be able to see His hand upon us. Sometimes I feel like this isn’t the case. Even when God is moving on our behalf and we are blessed beyond measure, strangers and even those we know, don’t necessarily “see” God in our situation. I happen to think it’s because we don’t always give Him the glory. We forget to sing His praises when He answers our prayers. We don’t share our testimony when He’s right on time with the provision that we need. When He heals our bodies, restores relationships or renews our minds, we neglect to give Him the credit. If we aren’t acknowledging His power and presence among us, then why would anyone around us, especially those who have yet to accept Him as their savior?
As Christians, we need to be sharing what God has done for us with anyone who will listen. We need to give Him credit for all the good that comes our way because it all comes from Him. We would have nothing if not for the grace of God who pours out blessings from Heaven for His children. Remember that when you have some success, big or small, that if not for God, you would not be who you are where you are today.
Be certain today that those around you see how awesome are the works of the Lord by making it a point to turn the focus to Him.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
(James 1:17 NIV)
