Does Jesus have a flare for the dramatic?

In my message on Sunday, “Faith and the Unlimited Power of God”, I shared 4 miracles of God.  In each miracle, God wanted the people to step out in faith and trust Him.  And somewhere between HERE———————>THERE, God displayed His unlimited power and did something miraculous.

It seems like every time we step out in faith and trust God, He brings it down to the wire…to the last minute.  He let’s us get ankle deep in the water before He does the miracle.  Sometimes, I wonder if Jesus has a flare for the dramatic?  Think about it….the loaves and the fish, walking on water, THE RESURRECTION!

Or, maybe God doesn’t necessarily have a flare for the dramatic, but He wants to remind us of who He is.  He performs these incredible miracles that we may BELIEVE (John 11:14-15).  Why do we have such a hard time trusting in the God of the Universe?  Why do we struggle with living by faith and not by sight? (2 Corinthians 5:7)?

So, where in your life do you need to appropriate God’s power?  Where do you need to step out in faith and trust Him?  God wants us to move in the direction of faith and obedience and somewhere between HERE——————–>THERE, He will display His unlimited power.  The same power that spoke creation into being, parted the Red Sea, and rose Jesus from the dead LIVES IN US!

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7

  1. Maybe all we ask for is what we could see God doing or would expect Him to do and therefore we don’t ask BIG.

    Guilty as charged. I need to go think about this more.

    How much FLARE do we expect or ask for? Wow! Yep, I gotta go think about this some more.

    Hey Eric, here’s what I have for you. Nah…that’s OK. I’ll just take 1% of what you were going to do BIG.

    oh, me.
