Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
God has a way of bringing good out of difficult circumstances that isn’t always easy to see when you are going through them. All He is asking from us is to have faith and we will see the wonders of His hands.
The apostle Thomas also didn’t expect God to bring good out of the greatest challenge of his faith—Jesus’s crucifixion. Thomas wasn’t with the other disciples when Jesus came to them after the resurrection, and in his deep grief he insisted, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were . . . I will not believe” (John 20:25). But later, when Jesus appeared to all the disciples together, out of the dust of Thomas’s doubts God’s Spirit would inspire a striking statement of faith. When Thomas exclaimed, “My Lord and my God!”, he was grasping the truth that Jesus was actually God in the flesh, standing right in front of him. It was a bold confession of faith that would encourage and inspire believers in every century that followed.
Our God is able to inspire fresh faith in our hearts, even in moments when we least expect it. And when we dare to have faith, we will see His wonders.
Nothing is too hard for Him! There is power in the name of JESUS
One dictionary defines wonder as “a cause of astonishment or admiration.”
God Himself is a wonder. Everything about Him is a wonder. Take His size for example. In 2 Chronicles 6:18 the Bible says the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him. Imagine someone so big that the Heaven of Heavens cannot contain and yet He lives inside a man. I know He lives inside me because in 1 John 4:4 the Bible says, “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
Not only is God a wonder, He does wonders. So when we have faith in Him, He will do wonders in our lives.
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
