". . .in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist." ESV
People have always been intrigued by magic and miracles. People who gravitate and put their trust in magic are those who want instant answers and a showy display of amazement. After all, we are an "instant" society where things are done by the touch of a button. If we pray and do not get our desired answer immediately, we get disappointed and "faith disabled." If we are walking in the Spirit of Truth, we will know the miraculous workings of God and we will wait with faith and anticipation for His answers to our prayers.
Lord, You are the One who created all things and who has all things ordered to play out in time. Forgive us for getting caught up in the spirit of this world where we miss Your mighty works because we are looking for instant and glorious answers right now. Help us to stay focused on You and Your plan for us, so that we will not focus on what we want. In Your gracious name we pray, Amen.
