Hi everyone! I pray that you've begun your journey in going from "glory to glory." If you haven't, read the previous blogs and start your journey today. I am going to side step and begin a series on "wonder." In my opinion, glory and wonder go hand in hand. Ready? Let's go!
God is highlighting the word “Wonder” in this season. If you take notice, it is everywhere- movies, songs, sermons, books, etc. As a society, we have lost our sense of wonder, and I believe He is trying to awaken us to this beautiful gift that is all around us and in us. It’s as if our eyes have become veiled and our senses numbed to the essence of creation and to the magnificence of who we are as God’s children. We have slipped down the slope of ugly and have mistaken mediocrity for greatness. Everything in our culture has gone from seeking out beauty and inspiration, to accepting and being okay with grunge and filth. Our language, fashions, music, movies, books, art, and even the way we treat each other. BUT, no more! God is raising up a multitude of creatives that are stepping out and pouring color back into the world. The pendulum is beginning to swing the other way. He is making all things new (Is. 43:19). If you don’t have the eyes to see it yet, ask for them: “Lord, give me the eyes to see what I am not seeing. Give me the eyes to see Your glory moving here on earth”.
We all have the creative power of God within us because we were created to co-create with Him (1 Cor. 3:9, John 14:12-14). He is the ultimate Creative and His Spirit is alive in us. We tend to put the word “creative” in a box limiting it to those who are artistic. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines creative as "having or showing an ability to make things new or think of new ideas." Clearly this definition is not just for those in the arts. It is for everyone. Creativity fosters wonder and wonder fosters creativity. With all of that said, I encourage you to accept God’s invitation and to step into “wonder”. Embrace it by allowing Him to unlock the creative power within you.
I will be breaking this down in the next few posts. I pray that Holy Spirit revelation will enlighten us all as to how to live a life of “wonder”.
Ponder and reflect on Isaiah 43:19, 1 Cor. 3:9 and John 14:12-14
