I believe in testifying about what God has done. We have an obligation to make His mighty works known, but as strange as it might seem, I believe we must be careful about it. Among the many things I cannot explain there is this–I’ve noticed, after many years of observation, that often times when we start talking about what God is doing He stops. At first I thought it was just a coincidence, but after it happened over and over again I started believing there is something more to it.
Over the last couple years God has been blessing our church in unusual ways. I am so excited that I want to talk about it, but I’m fearful of doing so. All I will say is that God is amazing! I’ve always understood that God blesses us inspite of us, not because of us–none of us are earning our way with God, but now this is more real to me than ever. We don’t deserve anything, yet God continues to shower His blessings upon us. I don’t know why it’s happening, I just don’t want to get in the way and hinder His working. I don’t want to “limit the Holy One of Israel”. He is causing dreams to come true before my very eyes and I can’t wait to see what He might do next.
It seems to me that there are some things that are better left unsaid. When seasons of great blessings come, be thankful and rejoice, but always beware that you never leave the impression that you deserve them or some how made them happen. The only explanation I can give is that our blessings come by His grace and for His glory. Beyond that I cannot explain them.
