The works of God in the ordinary

From D.A. Carson, commenting on Neh. 4: “If God is God, if he has graciously made himself known in the great moments of redemptive history and in visions and words faithfully transmitted by prophets he has raised up, why should we not also think of this God as operating in the so-called “natural” course of events? Otherwise we have retreated to some myopic vision in which God works only in the spectacular and the miraculous, but otherwise is absent or asleep or uncaring. The God described in the Bible is never so small or distant. ”

This is my encouragement for the day, to look for the amazing hand of God in the ordinary events of life. And once I see His hand, to worship Him in thankfulness and awe, that He is so intimately involved in every aspect of my day.
