God always goes above and beyond. Have you ever really thought about that?
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us… Eph. 3:20
In my ebook, The Sensational Scent of Prayer, I unfold a story of how I sort of “bargained” with God a few years back.
Do you ever bargain with God?
I figured no one else does that…ahem. But I remember saying something like this to the Lord:
You know that I’m a work at home mom and I have a houseful of little children. You gave me my family and I have a special needs daughter for which to care. So You know that I spend much of my time at home. I really want to be used by You to share your love with others. But I just don’t get out of the house much. If You want me to be a witness, then it would be great if You could bring the people to me….
And I share the story of how I faced the reality of that prayer when I glanced back over one particular summer day and over 20 people other than my own family members had walked through the doors of my home.
God really does go above and beyond.
And then, this week, we hit a milestone number on the blog for the year 2013.
RachelWojo.com has had 1,000,000 ,yes, 1 million views, just.this.year.
I publish this with much humility.
Because there is only one way that can happen-
through the blessing of the Lord.
I think God laughed at my ebook story. He looked down from Heaven and said, “Girl, you thought 20 people in one day was incredible- I’m about to send thousands your way every day- you haven’t seen anything yet.”
So I don’t have many words for you today.
As I finish preparations for the annual MPS family gathering event on Saturday, I’m again reminded of how big God is and how He does GREAT things.
Greater and larger than we can even imagine.
And I am humbled to be used by Him however and whenever He chooses to do so.
He wants you to use you too. So desperately.
Will you allow Him to have His way?
It’s Friday and that means it’s time for the Bible Challenge readers to check in. I hope you’ll pause long enough, no matter where you are in the reading, to encourage one another.
And I’d love to know from all the readers today:
How have you seen God go above and beyond your wildest imagination?
