It sounds very clinical and not necessarily positive at all,
To think God views us in an “under the microscope kind of way”.
But, He kinda does ya’ll, if you consider He knows everything.
“But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.” Jesus
Matthew 10:30 esv
That’s a miracle in and of itself.
Confirmation that He knows.
He knows which leave will fall first to the ground. Which morning bird will be the very first to sing, initiating a harmonious chorus.
Miracle it is, we are known and seen!
Miracles are everywhere. You might remember a few, decide to see it this way if you believe every second of every day plays out like an orchestrated performance,
God as the maestro, your life the powerful selection of calming peaceful repose in string, or crescendo arrival of horns fading into acceptance on delicate keys.
Yesterday met me with sincere congratulatory conversations.
One led to the question of what now or next?
I was bold, said I’m hoping to combine my nonprofit skills acquired in some way with my faith.
Perfect timing it was, a fellow faith based professional needs a grant-writer. We will meet next week, come up with a contract.
I said something along the lines of wow and then rambled on. She allowed me and calmly, steadily informed me.
This is God’s confirmation. You are taking the right steps. J.
I smiled, chills making their way down my calves to my feet.
I woke this morning after a sleep that was preceded by a conviction.
I’ve let some of my attitudes and behavior steer off course, turn corners fueled by pride, trying to keep my hands in and on things that are not mine.
Dangerously close to misrepresenting who I say I am because of Jesus.
“Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.”
Proverbs 18:6 nlt
It’s a miracle!
Why so? It’s a miracle because I’m heeding what I heard God say over the voices in my world all in agreement with my bitterness, my resentment, my pride.
It’s a miracle that we get to hear God. There’s no other way to say it, God knowing me and saying so…
It’s a miracle.
I heard Him over the rallying behind me voices that say my attitude and pride are justified.
He knows the number of the hairs on my head.
He knows my ways. He knows and told me gradually yesterday and into now,
“Lisa Anne, get back to the place you are known. The place and temperament that I gave you and called you to use to show me to others.
Get quiet. Let your confidence stay quiet.
Ask forgiveness where it is needs to be offered.
Because if you don’t you will miss out on the miracles I’m making in advance for you.
Move on, let go, accept that you are not in control.
Only control what you can, your attitude, your countenance that comes by staying closer to me and your willingness to retreat otherwise you will surely stumble, busting your butt on your pride.
You will fall flat on your face.” God, this morning.
What’s a miracle? Being known so well by my God, more than anyone will ever know.
Even more so, every single one of us is fully known the same.
God is everywhere. Don’t forget to notice. me
