Moving Beneath the Surface

Last week I posted about the shortness of life. A student at our school had just passed away last Thursday and there seemed to be many unanswered questions. Just yesterday though in chapel, through the work underneath the surface, 70 to 100 students got saved. God is always working, even though we can’t all the time see it.

As humans, our minds are limited. We can’t wrap our minds around eternity or death or tragedy. We are finite creatures that are distracted and discouraged if results don’t come quick and easy. But even through our distracted ness and discouragement, God is working. He is working in ways in which we could never imagine. It is incredible. What seems like chaos and confusion to us, is order to God.

33 For God is not the  author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. (1 Corinthians 14:33)

I know for me personally, that is my story. My parents, friends, relatives, were always in constant prayer for me. For years they prayed but saw no results. For years they begged and pleaded with God for me but there was no change. But God was moving, opening my eyes little by little, opening my heart slowly. And then one day, God grabbed me. In His timing and in His Way, He rescued me. No one saw it coming. Many had given up hope but God was working and had been for a long time.

Right now, I’m in the middle of praying earnestly and diligently for non believers. It is easy after praying for a while and seeing no results, to believe God is not working. But He is. He is always working and will continue to work in amazing, mind blowing ways, until He returns.

Blessings,
Joseph
