The center of the powerful story of Israel and God revolves around sin, high priests and bloody sacrifices. The Israelites could never be holy enough so God gave them a process to be clean again. Years later, Jesus entered into this story, their story, and became a high priest and sacrificed himself. But Jesus working in this way wasn’t a story they immediately recognized. They were looking for God to work in a different way: to act on the dramatically large scale of dividing the Red Sea or to militarily drive out the Roman occupiers.
Similarly, we often miss God working in our lives because he doesn’t perform miracles in the way we expect. I suffered from both depression and anxiety issues for many years. In both cases I expected and desperately wanted someone to “slay me in the spirit.” I imagined a minister putting his hand on my forehead, me collapsing on the ground, and all my panic would be gone. But God didn’t heal me in the quick way I wanted. Were my prayers going unanswered? Didn’t God care enough about me to prevent my daily descent into what I often describes as hell?
Here is one story of how God helped me, a person afraid of leaving my house, to travel half way around the world to adopt. It was not in the way I prayed for but God always has better plans.
