What has God been up to?

26 05 2011

We usually ask the questions: What’s new?  Or What’s going on?

How long has it been since we have asked: What is God up to?  When things are crashing down, when things are going great, the same God is up to something special in your life.  I do not hold a “high sovereignty” view of God where he is controlling and manipulating everything.  Instead, I follow a “low sovereignty” view of God where he is interacting with his people but he is always up to something.

One friend of mine refers to this as “God’s mischief.”  He sees God at work in ways that we could never imagine.  He sees God is always up to something…poking here and prodding there to get us to where we need to be.

So ask yourself this question:  What has God been up to?  As you reflect back over the day, the week, the year.  What has God been up to?  As you lay your kids down to sleep, ask them the same question.  What has God been up to in their lives during that day, week, year?

Using that opportunity can truly help the children develop a faith of their own that actively keeps its eyes, ears, and heart open to watch for what God is up to.
