Through the Eyes of Hope - 7 Days of Hope

DAY 1 OF 7

Greater Things

"God uses small instances to work out greater things."

When I was pregnant with my son, Christian, I found myself at home one night watching 60 Minutes while I waited for my husband, Chris, to get home. The episode was of a father who pushed his disabled son in races and marathons. Despite uneven terrain and long miles, they crossed the finish line together so that his son could experience life to the best of his ability.

We didn't have any idea at that point that something was wrong with Christian, but those pregnancy hormones had me boo-hooing until my nose hurt from blowing it so often. I grabbed a piece of paper and penned a note to my unborn baby. It said, in part:

You are my child and if something is wrong with you, nothing will change how much I love you.

Truer words were never spoken. This is a God wink, when He inspires you to do something that foretells an event of epic proportion. We see this in the small things, and many times we don't know how God is using these small instances to work out a greater thing. His ways are mysterious. Some dismiss this as coincidence, but I believe the Holy Spirit prods and guides us.

Can you see the God winks?

Questions for Reflection:

  • Have you seen a "God wink" lately?
  • How has this wink given you a glimpse of hope?
  • If you're still waiting for God to answer a prayer or still waiting for a wink from Him, what characteristic of God reminds you that He has your plans under control?
