“Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days — you would not believe if you were told” (Habakkuk 1:5).
God’s people need desperately to recover their sense of astonishment and wonder in the life of faith; a kind of belief that sees beyond what is understandable to a willingness to entertain unbelievable possibilities. For those seasons of life when faith comes hard, it is a sustaining perspective that looks beyond the circumstances to the providential purposes of God that have yet to be revealed.
