Have you ever heard something so moving, so inspirational, that you had to say wow? That’s what I said after listening to a CD of speeches given by the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As I listened, I marveled at his eloquence, empathy, and excitement about a brighter future. The more I listened, the more I felt an irresistible urge to join the movement. I was like, “Wow! I see why so many people followed Dr. King’s directives!”
I also said wow when I read the verses cited above. Though I wasn’t there to witness it, I’ll GOD’S voice was something to behold. Think about it: the earth was a dark, flooded, and muddy mess. All of the sudden, GOD stepped out of eternity and said, “Let there be light.” Without delay, the dark curtains parted and let light occupy the stage. Wow, what a WORD!
The same WORD that worked a miracle (light) in a mess can work wonders in your life. I implore you to take some scriptures and talk to whatever mess you’re in. Let the WORD wow you!
“Does not my word burn like fire?” says the Lord. “Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashes a rock to pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29, New Living Translation).
