Be Still Know

READ: Ephesians 3.20-21 NLT

‘Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.’

The resurrection of Jesus is so completely amazing that it needs to challenge every aspect of our thinking about life. It needs to take us on to a new level. If God was like us then it would be understandable if we expected only ordinary and predictable things to happen in life. But he isn’t like us. He was able to bring his son Jesus back to life again, and so we need to stop expecting ordinary and predictable things to happen and to expect him to do infinitely more than we can even imagine.

William Carey was a Baptist and the founder of the modern missionary movement. He lived in Northamptonshire and worked as a shoemaker at the end of the 18th Century. Carey was overwhelmed by the greatness of God and, in order to become more useful to the Lord, he learnt many languages alongside running his shoe business. He taught himself Hebrew, Italian, Dutch and French. He famously once said, “Expect great things of God; attempt great things for God.” His amazing life changed the course of mission work throughout the world and it happened because his faith in a great God was matched by his willingness to work incredibly hard for God.

As we continue to thank God for the privilege of being an Easter people let’s kiss goodbye to our small time, comfortable thinking and allow God to give us a much bigger vision of what he wants to do in the world. And at the same time let’s work hard at whatever God has called us to do.

QUESTIONS: What great things are you expecting God to do?

PRAYER: God our Father, thank you that you are such a great God. By your Spirit help me to expect you to do great things and give me the willingness to attempt great things for you. Amen
