Every so often, devotions I once wrote for Camp Greystone campers will appear in my inbox. Today, I loved remembering this piece I wrote for young people on the incredible things God does.
You can find the devotion here https://devotions.campgreystone.com/blog/2021/6/incredible and also pasted below. At the time when I wrote this, I remembered reading this verse from Joshua 3 about the Lord who does “amazing things.” I wanted the children to realize how God does incredible things, so I called this post “Incredible.”
“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” Joshua 3:5
Aren’t you ready for something amazing? Do you sometimes feel so bored and confined that you just wish for a miracle? I do. Lately, I’ve been reading the book of Acts, and I’m just astounded by the crazy stuff that happens.
People just walk around in that book filled with awe and wonder all day long. It’s like their jaws are permanently dropped in amazement. So many incredible things happen with Jesus’ power that Peter and John simply say, “We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” As I read this book, I consider the extraordinary miracles God accomplished through ordinary men.
Does God change? Has He stopped being amazing? Has He stopped doing incredible things in our lives?
No. Not at all. Not even a little bit.
One of the amazing, incredible, powerful, miraculous things God does is bring people back from the dead. Indeed, we were spiritually dead until we received Christ. We became spiritually alive the day we accepted the free gift of salvation. That’s incredible. That’s a miracle!
It doesn’t stop there. Our God is a God of miracles and “nothing is too hard for Him” (Jeremiah 32). Right at this very moment, He can supernaturally provide what you need.
What “amazing thing” are you trusting God for?
