A Work Not Believed
Daily Devotional for March 23rd
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you. Habakkuk 1:5
Did you know that God’s ways are so much higher than ours? When God does anything, it is so much greater than our expectations. The Lord is continually working beyond our limited grasp of understanding. The weakest that God could ever be is greater than man. God takes the wise in their own craftiness. God is so amazing that Satan isn’t even a worthy enemy.
Like Habakkuk, we pray as he did in the beginning of this scripture; O Lord, how long shall I cry and thou wilt not hear! All too often we think that God is not hearing our cry, but the truth is God is answering our prayers in ways that are so far beyond our ability to recognize. God has answered our prayers many times in such a way that it was not even visible, until it was already answered.
Habakkuk didn’t even think the Lord was hearing his prayers but yet God would give him such an extraordinary reply. God told him that He would work a work in his day which he would not believe, though it be told to him. In common English the Lord told him that He would answer his prayer so big that he wouldn’t even believe it. He answers that same way today friend.
We must realize that most of the time we ask so much smaller than God desires to answer. When God answers prayer, He never just answers, He exceeds the petition you desired. He always goes far beyond what we can imagine. It’s because He’s God! God can and will work a work in your day also, which you may not be able to believe, though somebody declare it to you. Are you seeking the Lord concerning a matter and expecting the answer to come a certain way or in a certain amount? Prepare for your mind to be blown friend! Like in Egypt, once God starts working on a matter, He will not stop until His name echoes through Pharaoh’s palace!

THE CAPTAIN’S JOURNAL
is a new blog series we will be posting periodically for the purpose of sharing with you our spiritual lessons and experiences we have learned along the way in our voyages in the Christian life. The Christian Voyage is filled with great joys, wonderful victories, and triumphs over tragedy. We will also encounter tempestuous storms and Gales! Perils in the Deep! This is a brief excerpt of Ship’s log entries that is geared to help us understand our circumstances and how to navigate through them.
As Paul described in 2 Corinthians 11:24… in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 11:27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

Exalting Jesus Above Everything!
Are you living your life apart from God?
As we have said many times, there is such a reality of knowing Jesus! Our concern is that there are many people who may attend church, but do not know the reality of relationship with Jesus! Jesus has promised living water unto those who are thirsty! This living water satisfies! An experience with Christ will not leave you feeling like you’re still unsatisfied. He will satisfy every longing within you.
