A Sign And A Wonder
I have become a marvel to many, For You are my strong refuge.
Beloved, our reckless trust and confidence in the nature of God causes us to become a marvel in the eyes of those around us. Our faith makes us a spectacle to those who don't know Him, and the depths of His goodness. The Hebrew word for "marvel" is מוֹפֵת (Mopheth), and it literally means miracle, sign, wonder or marvel, and thus to take refuge in the faithfulness of God is to become a living testimony to His power and tender care!
Beloved to take refuge in Him, is to express the upmost humility, for one must first come to terms with the reality of their own frailty and instead choose to place their confidence in another. Thus to live by faith alone is to live on the earth as the most humble of people, the most honest of people, the most real and transparent of people! And therein lies the sign! For those who leap into the saving arms of YHVH, as dear trusting children not only display these traits, but leave in their wake mountains of evidence testifying to the faithfulness of God and His devotion to His little ones!
My friend I challenge you today to live as a marvelous spectacle! Leap headlong into the loving arms of your Savior and there find refuge! Think back on how God has manifested His faithfulness to you, and choose to lift your eyes and rest all of your confidence on Him today!
