Among a group of boys on parade, one youngster walked out of step, keeping a tempo of his own. It turned out that he had a transistor radio inside his coat and, instead of following the band leader, was keeping step with music a thousand miles away! The Christian who knows his Bible is out of step with this old world. He is marching to the music of a distant Drummer!
“Prove Me Now”
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
We are inclined to pray as though this world were in the grip of cold, fixed laws, with only the remote possibility that God might occasionally break through. We timidly whisper a few feeble petitions barely hoping, but certainly not believing that we shall receive. But God is not a prisoner in His own universe. Jesus is the Lord of all creation, King of kings and Lord of lords. The devil can go only so far as God allows him to go.
God is waiting to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. He invites us to prove Him. He longs to demonstrate what He can do, exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think, great and mighty things which we know not.
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
This is our Father’s world. God is till on the throne of creation. Call on Him and He will answer.
