標 題： 燃起我們的期望
經 節： 你求告我，我就應允你，並將你所不知道、又大又難的事指示你。（耶利米書卅三章3節）
to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you
do not know.’ (Jeremiah 33:3)
Too often we settle for much less than
what God wants to do through us. We read in Jeremiah 32:27: “I am the Lord, the
God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for Me?” and we answer, “No Lord.” Yet,
when we face difficult situations we begin to qualify our belief in God and
lower our expectations of what God will do. It is one thing to believe God
could perform a miracle in the Bible, or a thousand years ago, or even in the
life of a friend; it is quite another matter to wholeheartedly believe God can
do anything He chooses to do in our lives!
When almighty God speaks to us, what we do
next proves what we believe about Him, regardless of what we say. God revealed
to Moses His plan to orchestrate the greatest exodus in human history, and He
wanted to use Moses to accomplish it. Moses responded by arguing with God!
Moses was overwhelmed by what he heard and began to make excuses for why he
could not participate in God’s activity. Moses would have readily acknowledged
his belief in God’s power, he simply did not believe God could do His
miraculous work through his life. Moses’ argument with God limited his ministry
for the rest of his life (Exod. 4:13–16).
Do you sense there may be far more that
God wants to do through your life than what you have been experiencing? Ask God
to show you what it is, then be prepared to respond in faith and obedience to
what He tells you.
