How do we give testimony to our faith? Let me count the ways.
I have returned to the past to find those pivotal moments when I found God working in my life. We, all of us, may have been seized from the jaws of death or misfortune by some unexplainable intervention. We can count each or all of them as a reason for our belief in God.
I challenge any of us to assess even where we are in that journey to God’s heart, or ever count it a done deal.. Rather, if it is not a process that continues beyond days of our lives, we may be missing the point, God is never through with His challenges… nor will He ever give up on bringing us back to center with large and small blessings,
I wonder then, if there is not a danger, however, in building our faith primarily upon major miracles or a “show me something else” mentality. Even to the extent of becoming jaded. We must never qualify what God does (or not do) on any scale .
I’m sure that we can never be a complete work, even well beyond the day we join the kingdom.. He will not deprive us of that glorious anticipation for what is next. .
My conclusion then may be that God knows all too well that we have short memories. Often our faith waivers with the tide. And, we can never duplicate the intensity of feelings that honor each blessing as they occur.
Our belief then is based upon the hope that God is never finished with us. Nor will we ever comprehend the scope or end of His creativity.
This builds purpose into our lives and the excitement of beholding His next move into all things great and small.
And, as for testimony; From the hymn “All things bright and beautiful”
“He gave us eyes to see them
And lips that we might tell
How great is God almighty
Who has made all things well”
