No fanfare. No hype. No pre-marketing plan. No big reveal.
He came in the most humble of forms, a little baby. He came from a simple, uneducated girl. He came to a poor, unassuming town. He came softly. I love it.
Then I began to realize....this is God's mode of operation a lot of the time. How many times have I been believing for something huge like a healing or financial miracle....or maybe even something smaller like needing to find something that I've lost. As I look back I see how God always answered softly.
As I would be praying for whatever it was I was needing, I would fantasize about all the cool, amazing ways God could answer. I could come up with some doozies! Amazing testimonies! But that is not how God works, in my life at least, maybe in yours too.
His answers always come. But they come so differently than I dream about them coming. He is subtle, unassuming, soft, slow. His work is without fanfare and drama. He acts out of His amazing power and love. He comes in His own sweet timing. He comes in His own sweet way.
So whatever you are asking for today, whether healing for you or a loved one, or a financial miracle, or for salvation for a wayward child.....remember this....God is working....in His own sweet, soft way He will answer....just like He answered this world's need for a Savior.
His plan always unfolds in the way He sees fit. Praise Him for His holy, magnificent ways.
