I’ve come to see God as a really hospitable Host, who loves to share His wealth and show His goodness to a particular kind of people – those with faith. Jesus hated to waste His miracles on the faithless. He knew that no number of signs and wonders will change a stone heart! But whenever He came across anyone with a measure of faith, He was so moved and zealous to act for their sake. He was a miracle worker in disguise in His day, and He loved the opportunities He had to work His miracles and transform lives – even though He had to keep it on the ‘hush hush’.
There is nothing He has not used in times past to show His great hospitality and care. He has shown without a shadow of a doubt that there’s nothing impossible for Him. Is it turning water to wine? Bringing water from a rock? Cakes from Heaven? Five star hotel service in the wilderness? Gold from a fish? A bottomless jar of oil? Really, I am in awe to think just what God could do in our lives today, if we could show Him even the smallest measure of faith!
In my life, there have been many times He has shown me that He is with me, and has my affairs in order. In the area of provision, God has been faithful. But it wasn’t always provision I needed; most of the time, it was guidance and assurance…and He was always there. I’ve had supernatural occurrences, dreams and visions, and inspired revelations too. I’ve come to trust that if I don’t doubt, but ask, just as I need it, He will use His unlimited resources to minister to me. And whatever I don’t understand (there’s still so much), I will know when God wants me to. There are just some things we will not fathom until we see Him face to face.
I have also learnt that God really is the most romantic lover ever. If it is thoughtfulness, He has it. If it is drama, He brings it. If it is affection, He shows it. This is the same God who foreknew our fall from Him, and in His desire for reconciliation, worked out a self-sacrificial plan to win us back. He wooed us with promises of love forever, enduring the heartbreak of our repeated betrayal, harlotry and prodigal behaviour – and even now, keeps waiting patiently, until the last day, for all to know just what love He has in store for us. It truly blows my mind. What an awesome God!

Well said. No one trusts God completely and gets disappointed. I’m more encouraged to keep trusting.
