Warmth in Giving

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of the word "Flabbergasted" is "feeling or showing intense shock, surprise, or wonder: utterly astonished."(1)  On today's Footsteps, TWR President Lauren Libby describes being "flabbergasted" at a large gift given for a new FM station to reach Singapore and parts of Indonesia.  Lauren went on to add that he "shouldn't be" so astonished at God's provision.  After all, God had opened this new ministry door for TWR.  We all knew that He would provide the needed funding.  Still, let's focus on that word "wonder" in Merriam-Webster's definition of "flabbergasted."  As the Lord works in amazing and sometimes surprising ways in our lives, not only should we be astonished, but His acts should cause us to look in wonder, excitement, and awe at His greatness.  Our response should be like that of Jesus' followers after witnessing one of His miracles:

"And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, 'We have seen extraordinary things today.'" (Luke 5:26, ESV)
