who knows what miracle you can achieve when you believe somehow you will..."
We are now between Passover and Pentecost, and I recently heard a powerful message from a friend about this transition period as a test.
I was reminded that during this same time in biblical history Jesus’s disciples were in disarray as they were trying to come to terms with what had just happened to their saviour, teacher, friend and Messiah. What did He tell them to do but to wait in Jerusalem until Pentecost.
And during this same season we remember the Israelites deliverance from the plague and from slaves to free men. Transitioning from slave mentality to a freedom mentally and yet God had sent them off with all of their captor’s gold.
At this time, many voices are clamouring for my attention...
But I keep hearing a steady whisper and it says:
“Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.”
Habakkuk 1:5 NIV

Deep in my soul, my resounding answer is:
