Today was a banner day of worship and community exemplifying how God is moving in and among His people. It was also a glorious reminder of Jesus’ promise in John 14 that “we would do even greater things.”
One of our staff people shared an update about his grand-nephew who we had been praying for since before he was born. The in utero prognosis was not good for this little one to live beyond his first birthday. However, we joined together with hundreds of others and after much prayer, a transplant, and two surgeries, the report came this morning to God’s glory: “He is healed, whole, and enjoying what will likely be a long and fruitful life.” Can you join me in praising God?
As we were praying and giving thanks for this answered prayer, I felt a hand on my shoulder. When we were done I realized that my friend Tim had walked up and joined the prayer circle. Tim’s a living miracle of the first degree. One of the premiere musicians in all of America, Tim has played for and toured with many famous artists. But today Tim plays for the Lord and worships as a man who has been delivered and healed from multiple addictions and is a mighty role model of God’s miraculous work that demands praise to God as well!
Just a few minutes later, I stood in the baptismal pool with a young Captain in the U.S. Armed Forces who has spent two tours of duty in Afghanistan. He made his profession of faith in Christ, declared his love for God and for family, including his beautiful fiancée, and he was baptized as a new disciple of Jesus Christ. The miraculous work of God never grows old.
So I encourage you to be attentive, look and listen, for the Lord is at work and miracles still happen. In fact, they are happening all around us to God’s glory. Let the people rejoice for we are a part of the “even greater things” movement of God!
