“Not long after that, Jesus went to the village Nain. His disciples were with him, along with quite a large crowd. As they approached the village gate, they met a funeral procession—a woman’s only son was being carried out for burial. And the mother was a widow. When Jesus saw her, his heart broke. He said to her, “Don’t cry.” Then he went over and touched the coffin. The pallbearers stopped. He said, “Young man, I tell you: Get up.” The dead son sat up and began talking. Jesus presented him to his mother.”
Luke 7:11-15 MSG
Hey everybody. I am so glad I got a chance to stop and write
something here in Australia. It’s been a great week so far. I can’t
believe a week has passed already. It’s been so much fun and
God has been showing me lots. I can’t wait to share what He has been
showing me which will come later in the days and weeks to come.
Anyway, I hope you all know the story I started with in Luke. It’s a
really interesting story and pretty straight forward. Jesus is on
His way to a village called Nain and as He approaches it He meets
people who are morning the death of a man, a widow’s son. He
was been carried out for burial. So as you can imagine, there is
mourning, and sadness. Anyway to cut a long story short Jesus
raises the man from the dead. What an amazing miracle! Look at
what the next verse says:
“They all realized they were in a place of holy mystery, that God was at work among them. They were quietly worshipful—and then noisily grateful, calling out among themselves, “God is back, looking to the needs of his people!” The news of Jesus spread all through the country.”
Luke 7:16-17 MSG
When Jesus raised the man from the dead the people realized they
were in a place of holy mystery!! They realized that God was at work
This is the thing I want you to see. We are always in a place of holy
mystery because God is always at work among us. We may not
recognize it at times but it’s the truth. Coming to Ausstralia made
me realize how true that was. As I reflected on all that is happening
in my life right now, It is clear to see that God is at work in my
life, I am in a place of holy mystery and I thank Him for that.
You are in a place of holy mystery friend. God is doing stuff in your
life even if it’s difficult to understand, even if it seems like you are
facing a wall. If it’s hard for you to see it then ask Him to show you.
Let’s not be familiar with the things God is doing in our lives.
We make the mistake of thinking that the place of holy mystery is only
found in the big things God is doing but it’s just not true. He is in the
small, simple things as well. You have a job, you have the gift of life,
you are healed, you have a loving family, your sins are forgiven!
The list goes on and on!
As I end please understand you are in a place of a holy mystery!
