Monday Musings – When Technology Makes History – 09/08/14
I was on Skype with a group of people last week and suddenly realized that I was witnessing an historic moment. The names of those involved and the details of the story cannot be shared because of some sensitives that exist, but impact of the moment is no less powerful!
Don’t you love a God moment when suddenly you realize that all you have planned for and worked towards has just become a reality? Last week, as I looked at the computer screen and came face to face with a group of people who have been praying and planning toward a ministry vision, I was suddenly overwhelmed with a rush of the ravish goodness of God!
Technology brought people together from different corners of the world. More importantly, God was bringing together a vision that had been planted in the hearts of three men two years earlier almost to the day.
Yes the story is wordless, the people are faceless, and the God who authored it is invisible, but technology turned the invisible into the visible! Computer screens do not lie because they make visible that which bounces from earth to satellite and back to earth again. Internet makes the invisible visible, making the results tangible and measurable. Last week’s Skype call made visible what the invisible hand of God has been working on and positioning for over the last two years.
Look for history maker moments in your own life. Position your life in a way that God can surprise you. Be part of vision that is beyond what you can see. Write down the moments when God makes history. Look back at those moments from time to time as a means of reminding yourself of God’s ability to do immeasurably more than you could ever ask or imagine! Let Him turn the invisible into the visible!
Never let a wordless story diminish the amazing ability of God to provide a historic moment!
Until next Monday…
