You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the miraculous signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, with which the LORD your God brought you out. The LORD your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear.
— Deuteronomy 7:19
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
So often we look at the past work of God and think we will not see the display of his power like our predecessors did. But, just as God reminded a new generation of his people that he would go with them and empower them like he had their parents. We also need to expect him to do more than all we can ask or even imagine by his power at work within us (Ephesians 3:20-21) and do in our day, what he we heard he did in days gone by with our ancestors of faith (Habakkuk 3:2).
Almighty God who is infinitely able to work with power and might, we ask that you use your power to call the unsaved to Jesus in our generation. Please use us to be your tools and do in our day the great work of redemption, reconciliation, and revival like you have done in years gone by. Father, we believe in your power and your desire to save. Please act mightily to redeem our generation. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
