Great and Mighty Things

I know it has been a while since I post. I am still alive. It has been a rough couple of weeks in the church nothing bad just regular pastoral duties. You know families mad at one another, and then people getting there feelings hurt over misunderstandings. I am going to try to start posting regularly once again. I pray I may gain new readers that will gain some encouragement through the posts.

Jeremiah 33:3
Call unto me, and I will answer thee and shew thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not.

I preached this last Wednesday Night at church. At the beginning of this chapter we find the Word of the Lord coming to Jeremiah the second time, and to start out I am glad the Word of the Lord comes more than once. I believe everytime you go to church the Word of the Lord should come to you. What we need in this hour of concern in our nation is for God's people to act on the Word of the Lord. We live in a church age that is lukewarm at best, and many people don't even hear what is being preach to them. If they hear it I know many are not heeding to the Word of the Lord. But my thought for this post is this verse. First we are told to call on the Lord. I know the day we got saved we called on his name to save us, but I believe we have lost sight that we still need to call on the Lord in everything we do. I am glad I am calling on one that is very attentive to what I need. I am glad that he is waiting to hear from me. Now to the next point I will answer thee. You know God answers us according to his will. He will answer us yes, no or wait, I know in my life many times I get the wait answer. That brings us to another thought we can not treat God like a microwave. We get upset when we don't hear the answer we want in our time. God is soverign and he will answer in this time. His ways and thoughts are above are thoughts. Now we come to the reason for this post. He will show great and mighty things. The church today settles for the status quo. I still want to see God do great and mighty things today. I know God can still do great and mighty things.

In the Salvation of Souls God can still do the great and mighty. He can still save souls that we think are hopeless. People we are praying for he can still save them. He is still in the soul saving business, and God want to use us in the area of reaching lost people to do the great and mighty.

I believe God still wants to do the great and mighty in the church. He still wants to fill the church up. He still wants to perform miracles in our churches. He wants to heal people from their infirmities. He wants to put marriages back to together. He still wants to bring the wayward home.

To close the reason we do not see the great and mighty today is I believe we just don't believe God. We don't have the trust in God to do it. Today most churches have not seen the move of God in the church. Even though he says he is there. What do you need today in your life. I know one thing He can still do the great and mighty. God bless you till next time.
