Have you experienced times when God has just blown your mind? Has there been times where things turned out for your favor and the only explanation is a power higher than yours? God will do great things for you and sometimes He'll do it in a way that seems impossible. Or He will do in a way where He is the only one that could be the reason for the result.
In Mark, we see that Jesus took two fish and five loaves and fed five thousand people. If you're hearing about it and not knowing anything about the power of God, this story sounds like a bunch of bologna. In my mind, I'm wondering what five thousand people would share and be satisfied with two fish and five loaves. Then the other thing is that there was food left over after everyone ate. How does that work? To me, that just blows my mind. I can tell you that there have been millions of time where God has completely blown my mind. There's been times where I thought something was going to be a disaster and it turned out to better than I imagined. But there comes a point where you just gotta trust God and let Him do it.
The other thing is that when you're facing tribulations and just life, you have to trust God. How do you trust God through the storm? Think about the times where God blew your mind. Go back to the miracles that God did for you. Don't forget where God has brought you from. Unfortunately, the disciples didn't have this mentality. Jesus after feeding the thousands with the small portion and the disciples went on the boat. A wild, crazy storm came and they started to freak out. Then, Jesus decided to walk to them. As they were on the boat in the storm, they freaked out and were saying that it was a ghost. However, they just came from a crazy, mind blowing miracle and fear was in their hearts. They didn't even think to call on God. As humans, we have trials and problems. But as Christians, we have a strong tower to lean on. We know that God is extremely powerful and that He comes in right on time. When you're facing them, don't let fear make you forget what God has done for you in the past. Don't lose those memories of those mind blowing miracles. Always remember that God saved and delivered you from your storm. Even when it doesn't look like God is in the midst of the storm, always remember that He will be there as He will never leave you nor forsake you. Trust God and always remember that God is in the miracle working business.
No matter what pain you're experiencing or what you're going through, just remember that God wants to work on your behalf. He wants to heal You. He wants to see you through. He wants to set you free!!
