I’m no fan of winter. For those who know me, this is no surprise. Every day of winter that passes for me is just one less day of winter, and one day closer to spring. This weekend has looked a lot like spring. It’s been sunny and seventy degrees. The squirrels and birds in my neck of the woods think it looks like spring, too. My yard has been a flurry of wildlife activity. My indoor cats have been salivating at the windows.
I say it every year, so if you have been a long time reader of Cracked Pot Pieces, you’ve heard this before.
I love spring.
Sometime back in December, God flipped the switch “off”, and when spring arrives, he has reached over and flipped it back “on” again. At least that’s how it seems to be. Once again, he’s starting things up. I like it when God starts things up.
It’s fun to watch God busy doing things. I love it when I am where He is choosing to do things. My advise to anyone who hasn’t seen God doing things, is to move to where He is doing things. Sounds simple enough, right? I think so. So here’s the deal, if God is not working in your life then you need to get on the move.
Maybe it’s time to do some spring-cleaning in your life. Get rid of some things, activities, even people. For some of you, those things are keeping you from seeing God at work. You are holding onto things that seem on the outside like good things, worthy things, but they are keeping you from where God is working. Want to see God doing some amazing things? Go find him. It’s not that He’s just not doing anything. Quite the contrary. He’s busy. Busy, busy, busy.
So often we just want Him to come to where we are doing something, and make things happen there. Pretty presumptuous, don’t you think? I’ve done that before. It didn’t work out too well.
We have to become God Chasers. Ever watch the show, “Storm Chasers” on the Weather Channel? Those idiots don’t wait for the EF-5 tornado to come to them; they go looking for the right conditions for their “perfect storm”, and then they run right into the middle of it all.
That’s what God Chasers do. They look for the right conditions for God to show up, and when He does, there they are, ready to run right into the middle of what He’s doing. I want to see God doing God sized things. And He is. In just this last year, I have seen Him heal and restore marriages that were beyond repair. Just this last week, I have seen Him heal disease that looked so very ominous. I have seen Him do things that I just can’t explain in my church. I like that. I like being right up in the middle of what He is doing. I want a front row seat, I want to feel the excitement, and get caught up in His momentum. Don’t you?
If its been a while since you’ve seen God doing God-sized things, then it’s time to get on the move. If you need God to do God-sized things in your life, then it’s time to get on the move.
