Dave continues with his theme of ‘Humility’. It is an essential key to becoming like Christ and to our future. God needs to teach, train and equip us but pride often stands in the way. Often you find yourself in a position where people seem to rise up to oppose you – Dave argues that God allows them to frustrate or hinder you in order to cause us to humble ourselves. God gives grace to the humbe so surely we neeed to grow in the attributes of humility – not pride.
Many of the miracles that are publicly testified to in church life are wilderness miracles. Shoes that never wear out, food that simply arrives at the door, and unusual signs in the heavenlies are all things to which we give God all of the glory, but is that the high ground of the miraculous or simply the nursery slopes of the miraculous that God has in store for our lives?
