It's been so great to see students get excited about praying. They've been making time in their life to knock on the door of heaven, seek Him, and ask God to do powerful things.
The book of Daniel is an example of a man doing something very similar. He knew he was in hostile territory and under a pagan King. He sought God regularly, publically, privately, openly and vulnerably. He prayed so much that wisemen of other religions looked up to him.
Daniel, no doubt, prayed for miracles, just like many students are now. When we pray for miracles, we should expect attention. Daniel got all sorts of attention - attention from God, attention from kings, attention from peers and even the normal man. We should expect attention as well.
I'm an NOT saying we should seek attention, but if we seek miracles, we should expect attention.
What type of attention? I can't say exactly. But it will probably be stretching, eye-opening, surprising or downright crazy.
What type of attention will God allow you to have? What type of kings will you speak in front of? What type of wisemen will seek your advice? What position or platform will God give you? God knows, even if you don't.
Let's continue to seek miracles.
Let's continue to expect attention.
Let's continue to ask God to teach us to respond to that future attention in a wonderful way. A way that lifts Him high, and makes Him proud.
Let's be ready, in season and out.
