The Bible speaks about the four living creatures, the four and twenty elders, it tells of how awestruck they are each time they behold God, they are like “HOLY HOLY HOLY is the Lord Almighty”, “You are Worthy our Lord and GOD…”and they do this like always. (Revelations 4:7-11). This week is not about the four living creatures and the elders, its about you and I.
Cast your mind to your early days as a believer, think of how your heart yearned for Him, how you drank from the well of the supernatural, how you just wanted to talk to people about Him everytime and everywhere. Have you done that? Now if you have, I want you to ask yourself now based on your walk with God now, is it still the burning and wonder filled heart? Have you gotten so used to God? Do you see like a child? Are you constantly trivialising the dealings of God in your life? Are you constantly in the web of ingratitude as you do not see the things He brings you through as anything since its “nothing compared” to what you have been seeking Him for?
When we get to a point in our walk with God where we don’t behold with wonder then there is a problem and it’s either we are beginning to grow cold or lukewarm or ingratitude is setting in.
Rick Pino shared something I will like to quote, he said “The Israelites didn’t perish for lack of wonders but rather their lack of Wonder”.
Friends I find this above statement too true, often times I have sat down wondering why the Israelites will grumble despite seeing all the amazing things God was doing and I realized if there’s no wonder in our hearts and eyes for the Lord we’ll do same. It’s a dangerous to lose awe for the Father
Their voices rose in a great chorus of protest against Moses and Aaron. “If only we had died in Egypt, or even here in the wilderness!” they complained. (Numbers 14:2).
Friends, we must never get to the point where we do not behold with wonder, we must always be a child before the Lord.
The Psalmist prayed a prayer that I will like to round up with because I find it so important a prayer for us all. Here’s the one thing I crave from God,
the one thing I seek above all else: I want the privilege of living with him every moment in his house, finding the sweet loveliness of his face, filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace. I want to live my life so close to him that he takes pleasure in my every prayer. Psalms 27:4 (TPT)
May we never lose our Wonder friends.
Have a great week ahead!
