Never Seen

And the man did it--got up, grabbed his stretcher, and walked out, with everyone there watching him. They rubbed their eyes, incredulous--and then praised God, saying, "We've never seen anything like this!"       Mark 2:12

God promises that if we will faithfully trust and seek Him with our prayers that we will see things that are beyond our imagination. My personal & ministry experience contains enough evidence for that to be true:
  • Cancer healed (in multiple people)
  • Addictions beaten (alcohol, pornography, drugs)
  • Passionate worship (in circumstances where it most unexpected)
  • Marriages healed (when they seemed destined to fail)
  • Suicide attempt overcome (when depression seemed to have too strong of a grip)
  • New, beautiful marriages made from broken pasts (genuine Christ-like love from people who had lost hope)
  • Me as a pastor (knowing where I've come from & my many faults)
  • Churches growing exponentially (while they are closing by thousands in other places)
  • Ridiculous generosity (from the faithful hearts of people with little to share)
God isn't done showing us things we've never seen if we are ready to keep asking to see them. Will we have enough faith to believe He is able and willing?
