This week I have witnessed some of  the Lord’s divine work. He has once again shown that He is with us, He is there for us.  His wonderful signs are to be shown and spread as His word says.

“If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.”(John 10:37-38)

Here we see that our Lord shows that the Father’s works are real , they do exist. They show real signs and miracles for our benefit. To strengthen us , to uplift us. Signs help us to believe. Of course the Lord does not give them in place of faith, but rather to strengthen our faith.

As some of you who have read the blog for a few years know, I have written about how God has used the Hummingbirds in my life. One of the most dramatic and powerful signs given was written about here –https://godsloveandlaw.com/2011/04/02/god-sends-a-hummingbird/

This wonderful sign woke me up to the fact that a serious idol in my life was to be done away with, lest I remain forever in its snare and not grow in the Truth as the Lord would have.

The Lord said–

“No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.” (Luke 11:33)

 I believe this sign is given to show the Lord’s light (wonder signs) to us all. I am putting this lamp on the stand for all of you to see it. So let us give thanks and praise to Him that speaks to us in diver and amazing ways.

About one week ago I had opened my front room curtains. As I usually do I looked out to see if I could see any of my favorite little friends, the hummingbirds, feeding at their feeder. I did not, but I could see that the feeder was empty, so I made a mental note that later that day I would refill it. Later after work, I forgot to refill the container. Being wrapped up with the work of the day, it had escaped my mind.

The next morning, again I did my same routine and opened the curtains. I looked at the feeder. What?? What is this I thought? Am I seeing right? Then it hit me! The Lord has refilled the feeder with just enough to show the drink had been added! There is no other explanation for this. As we all know, liquid cannot appear from nothing unless the Lord commands it.

Stunned, I got down on my knees and thanked Him for such a wonderful sign. Joy and amazement are the best I can describe my feelings at that moment. But this was something that the Lord had done before, and I know this is to be shown to others as encouragement. He really does want us to know that He works even now, even today.  Not only in silent and unseen ways, but visual insightful ways!

The two pictures above show the views I saw from the living room. The top picture shows the empty feeder as I saw it. The bottom picture shows the red liquid in the feeder as I saw it. To fully explain, this refilling and emptying  has taken place for the last several days and I was able to then take pictures of it.

Signs have played a big part in the Scriptures. We recall the inspiring sign given Abraham’s servant in choosing Rebekah. Let us read this great story.

Then he prayed, “Lord, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham.  See, I am standing beside this spring, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water.  May it be that when I say to a young woman, ‘Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too’—let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master.”

 Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milkah, who was the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor.  The woman was very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever slept with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again.

 The servant hurried to meet her and said, “Please give me a little water from your jar.”

 “Drink, my lord,” she said, and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink.

 After she had given him a drink, she said, “I’ll draw water for your camels too, until they have had enough to drink.” So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough, ran back to the well to draw more water, and drew enough for all his camels.  Without saying a word, the man watched her closely to learn whether or not the Lord had made his journey successful.

When the camels had finished drinking, the man took out a gold nose ring weighing a beka and two gold bracelets weighing ten shekels. Then he asked, “Whose daughter are you? Please tell me, is there room in your father’s house for us to spend the night?”

She answered him, “I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son that Milkah bore to Nahor.” And she added, “We have plenty of straw and fodder, as well as room for you to spend the night.”

Then the man bowed down and worshiped the Lord,  saying, “Praise be to the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, who has not abandoned his kindness and faithfulness to my master. As for me, the Lord has led me on the journey to the house of my master’s relatives.”(Gen. 24:12-27)

What I like about this story is the immediate bowing down and praising the Lord after the servant witnessed the faithful sign from the Lord. We all like to be appreciated and who is more worthy of our appreciation than the Lord? His great signs truly lift us up and encourage us.

Some have asked–Why don’t I ever get any signs? My answer would be –have you watched? Are you keeping your eyes open for His speaking to you through them? I truly believe signs are given many times yet we fail to stop and notice them, we run right through them!

Let us not be afraid to go before the Lord in prayer and ask. He knows the depths of our souls and what will uplift us. Pray then watch. Signs may be given in response to a prayer. there may be a person the Lord sends to you that has the answer. There may be a sign from a Billboard, or an article that just happens to address your concern. The important thing to remember is He knows what will reach YOU and how to show it beyond doubt.

Our Lord said ” Only believe.” (Mark 5:36).
