In my Bible Study this morning, the passage was 1 Samuel 5, where the Philistines had captured the Ark of the Covenant, and their god, Dagon, kept getting knocked over during the night (I love that story!).
The last question was, How have you seen God's power recently?
Well, I haven't seen Him knock over any idols, but a few events came to mind which show His power in different ways.
Yesterday afternoon, Terry and I took a walk, and several times we had to stop to watch some geese, returning from their winter jaunt down south. We both love to watch them, both in the fall and in the spring, and every time I see them, I marvel at the power of God, who created them with that unerring instinct to make that long journey twice a year. It never ceases to amaze me!
And then last night I talked with a friend who had recently spoken at a women's conference. She told me that it was evident to her that the things she shared with these women touched many of them right where they needed it most. I so often see that happen and I love that God does that. It seems like such a little thing, and some might call it coincidence, but to me it shows His concern even for the "little" things in life. And when you think about it, something that helps a believer deepen their relationship with God isn't really so little, after all!
I'm so glad He gave me sight to see these things.
