Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Perform.
The first thought which came was how grateful I am to not have to be part of a performance. Not having any talent to sing or act, and not liking large crowds relieves me of having do any.
Then another meaning came to mind – to perform – to carry something out to its full effect.
This thought brought to mind One who performs with excellence. One who carries out an action to its full effect which is, to cause wonderment by which He alone is known.
“Then God said, “Behold, I am going to make a covenant. Before all your people I will perform miracles which have not been produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of the Lord, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you.” (Exodus 34:10, NASB)
He alone performed miracles and acts never seen before or since …
He defeated the Egyptians,
He split the Red Sea for the people to pass safely,
He provided manna fresh each morning,
He provided meat to be eaten,
He provided water to drink in the desert,
He provided a land,
He brings freedom, healing, and deliverance.
He alone is God,
who alone performs wonders even today,
so that we come to know Him.
