Deep Sense of Awe

By Kurt Selles

July 31, 2023

When was the last time you experienced awe? Maybe you felt awe when you sensed God’s power in a thunderstorm or witnessed the rolling waves of the ocean. Perhaps as you held a newborn baby you were overcome with awe by God’s miracle of new life. Or maybe you have stood in awe at the wondrous way God has answered your prayers.

The book of Acts describes how the Christian church began and, more importantly, how the Holy Spirit of God made that happen. Many moments in Acts note a deep sense of awe as people witnessed the Spirit of God in action.

Whether you are exploring faith, new to faith, or have been around faith a long time, we pray that reflecting on the work of the Spirit may ignite a passion in you to seek and more deeply know God.

This month’s author, Ron Baker, is a pastor at Vitalpoint Church, which focuses on planting churches in small towns in Ontario. He is married and has two sons, two daughters-in-law, and two granddaughters. His passion is to connect God’s Word to our everyday life.

As you read the Today devotions this month, may you be refreshed, refocused, and renewed in God’s Word!
