God is omncient and omnipotent. There is no denying that. Yet, He often chooses to work with like minded people to accomplis His sovereign and permissive will.
We so often read in many of the interactions with Jesus and in Scripture in general that God often partners with people of faith. Jesus commended the Centurion for his faith.
His response to the Centurions plea was, “Go; let it be done for you as you have believed.”
Jesus coupled doing this miracle with the Centurion’s faith, his belief in God.
Within God’s permissive will, it is multiplication.
God power is infinite but He seems to wield it as we can handle it.
Kind of like a step down power transformer.
For simplicity, consider this formula as an example;
God’s Power Applied (GPA) × My Faith Factor (MFF) = Power Watts (PW)
1,000 GPA x 0 (no faith) = 0 PW
1,000 GPA x 1 (little faith) = 1,000 PW
1,000 GPA x 100 (max centurion faith) = 100,000 PW
So the closer we get to God’s will with the greatest amount of faith will result in the best outcome and maximising our combined effectiveness. Obviously, in many respects it isnt just that simple but on the other hand it is that simple, as we see in Scripture.
Its one thing to read, another to comprehend, and lastly to do; to apply.
I know have a long ways to go but yet a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
Won’t you join me? And may I join you in this great adventure called life?
Lord of life, aid me in my work and being. I know in my heart of hearts you are real and love me.
This most certainly includes ‘everyday’ miracles and hopefully the greatest one possible in each of our lives = (born)2 – See John 3:1-16
The outside world changes when your influence with God cause change but the biggest change comes from within. When you pray with zest and faith, He changes you. This inside-out change effects everything from your perspective.
What is an everyday or once in a lifetime miracle you have experienced?
Though General Lee was on the wrong side of history with the American civil war, he was a devout and noble man.
Praying for our country is still true and surely needed.
I hope you will join me.
