God of Wonder (Awe & Wonder) – Part 3
By Margaret D. Mitchell
Week of February 7, 2021
In Part 2, I talked about how God has many of us in new settings right now—expanded places for His fulfillment of destiny. I described a neighborhood He led me to drive through as a visual of where He has led us and why.
Since having written Part 2, I’ve actually walked through that neighborhood twice. And as I did, God opened my eyes even more to see a message full of metaphors for those who continue to follow Him (2 Cor. 4:16):
My new walk through this neighborhood was on a mountaintop that is predominately level, revealing a holy ease in this prepared pinnacle of expanse. Sidewalks border streets, many of which are lined with mature, fragrant boxwoods and tall, oversized trees, which reveal a rich history, firmly rooted in fertile soil.
The homes are orderly.
It is a place where generational promises are fulfilled, where we can be strong, firm, and lasting, like the houses that surround us (Deut. 31:6-7).
Walking here, I knew God set us free from past resistance, even from the immediate past. His light shines brighter here in this glorious place, where He can do greater works through us for greater impact.
This is a cultivated place, like the gardens of our hearts, where persistence has won. We can continue to grow in the beauty of our Lord here, walking out fulfillment. Able to cut through new opportunities before us, having been refined by His fire.
As He has gone before us (Deut. 31:8).
And although we are always learning, God has removed the training wheels in this new level. He has given us eyes through which to see His way with greater clarity, so we can now proceed with greater assurance in Him.
We know we can do the work, because He proved us in the secret place. We can trust that He will continue to enable us by His Spirit of Grace.
As we put our hands to the plow, we will do so in greater authority as God continues to reveal His assignments, purposes and paths.
God will bring key people to join us on this walk to form an increased convergence of His power to make a bigger, sharper instrument, like an arrowhead, that will hit the mark with tremendous impact.
Multiplicity that will come in and go out.
By His mercy.
He will continue to give us eyes to see and a heart to know as he fits us together and enables us to occupy at this pinnacle level to achieve much.
As we continue to trust and obey Him, we will experience God finishing what He began in this fitting place of fulfillment.
This new, level place is one of wonders, where we will see God show up in miraculous ways as we co-labor with Him.
Our victory will be certain as we submit to Him.
Psalms 139:13-16 reminds us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made and that God’s works are wonderful.
Psalm 66:3 TPT says, "For he’s the awe-inspiring God, great and glorious in power! We’ve never seen anything like him! Mighty in miracles, you cause your enemies to tremble. No wonder they all surrender and bow before you!"
Isaiah 41:10 offers us a strategy, saying, "Do not yield to fear, for I am always near. Never turn your gaze from me, for I am your faithful God. I will infuse you with my strength and help you in every situation. I will hold you firmly with my victorious right hand."
So, friends, God has readied us by leveling hindrances in us to level giants before us, which can be the challenges that come with new opportunities.
God has transformed us to transport us farther into our destiny.
It’s time to go out on assignment with God and experience His power on our behalf and flowing through us as miraculous wonders (Acts 4:30).
So, let’s thank Him…
Thank You for who You are: Our "one and only God" (Ps. 86:10 TPT).
Thank You that Your "unforgettable works of surpassing wonder reveal" Your "grace and tender mercy" (Ps. 111:4 TPT).
Thank You for opening our eyes to see "What miracles! What wonders! What greatness belongs to you" (Ps. 86:10 TPT)!
Thank You for positioning us in a beautiful setting, a new level of honor made easy by Your prevailing Spirit of Grace.
Thank You for making us into the virtuous women of Proverbs 31:30 as we live "in the wonder, awe, and” reverential "fear of" You…praised throughout eternity."
Thank You for helping us walk out the fulfillment You have for us here, seeing Your glory in the midst of this mountaintop experience.
We need You, Lord. Help us to honor You every step of the way.
We beseech Your great wisdom as we head farther with You into this new land of divine promise.
Thank You, Lord, for enabling us to know You more in this. For leading us deeper into our destiny, where we’ll become even more involved in what matters most to Your heart.
You are our God of breakthrough and follow-through. You are our Finisher, and we love You.
We thank You for opening this "fountain of life within" us as we worship You "in wonder and awe" (Prov. 14:27).
Thank You, Lord, that "to the farthest corners of the planet people will stand in awe, startled and stunned by your signs and wonders. Sunrise brilliance and sunset beauty both take turns singing their songs of joy to you" (Ps. 65:8 TPT).
