Several days ago, I was travelling to Athens early one morning to do a Bible study with some friends. As I travelled, I turned off the radio and began to pray. I was impressed that particular morning with the beauty that surrounds us if we would just open our eyes.
“For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” – Romans 1:19-20
I began to look slightly to the right and the left of the interstate as I drove. There was created land, trees, sky, clouds, stars, and the beautiful array of colors as the night was shifting toward the day. I asked myself the question, “How many times have I driven this road only seeing the interstate and the cars?”
We get distracted by the works of man and miss the mighty works of God! What’s more is that beyond the physical realm, the attributes are clearly seen in the spiritual realm. The fruits that should bear from those who know Jesus are miraculous!
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” – Galatians 5:22-24
Do you see it? The believer in Christ should constantly crucify the flesh that is trying to cover up the miraculous work of God in your life. As you learn to trust God more, you must give yourself over to greater obedience. You will begin to see those special fruits bear in your life on a more regular basis! Praise be to God for that!
While seeing through man’s various physical creations to glorify God for His beautiful creation is special – How much more special when real, genuine love is shown in the midst of a world of pretenders? How much more special when a believer has the peace of Christ in the midst of a storm? How much more special when a Christian is genuinely good to someone regardless of their “earning” it? Do you want to see miracles in your life? Have faith! God is working miracles every day in the lives of those who are bearing fruit for His glory!
