Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.
Habakkuk 1:5 NIV
In Your Days
According to Statistics Canada, the Canadian population is changing due to baby boomers getting older and immigration boosting numbers in the younger generations. These changes will have significant consequences, particularly on the labour market, services to seniors, and the consumption of goods and services. For the first time since the end of the baby boom, baby boomers—who were born between 1946 and 1965 and were between the ages of 56 and 75 in 2021—make up less than a quarter of the Canadian population.
God loves the world He created. When He finished creating it, everything was perfect, and He declared it to be very good. When sin entered the world and everything went sideways, He still expressed His love for it all and set in place a plan to redeem all that had been lost because of sin. The Bible’s narrative is the story of God’s work in every generation. As we read the Bible, we are amazed at how God has worked time and time again to draw men, women and children to Himself. Through an Old Testament prophet, God makes a wonderful promise to every generation. Habakkuk 1:5 tells us “‘Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” This is a promise for our generation. God is doing something in our day that is more than amazing. More people are coming to faith in Jesus around the world than at any other time in the history of the world. He is drawing people from every nation, tribe and tongue. Be amazed – God is very much at work in our day.
These have been words from the heart.
