We have all been hearing that we are in a season of increase in supernatural signs and wonders. When I hear "signs and wonders" I usually think of corporate Kingdom signs and wonders—those that would impact and change nations. But I also believe God is giving us signs and wonders in our personal lives in a very special and individual way.
The word "sign" means:
1. A token; indication. 2. Any object, action, event, pattern, etc., that conveys a meaning. 3. A conventional or arbitrary mark, figure, or symbol used as an abbreviation for the word or words it represents. 4. A motion or gesture used to express or convey an idea, command, decision, etc.
So in summary, a sign is a symbol or token that conveys a meaning, an idea, command, or a confirmation of a thing. The word "wonder," as a verb, means:
1. To speculate curiously or be curious about; be curious to know: to wonder what happened. 2. To feel wonder at.
The word "Wonder," as a noun, means:
1. Something strange and surprising; a cause of surprise, astonishment, or admiration. 2. The emotion excited by what is strange and surprising; a feeling of surprised or puzzled interest, sometimes tinged with admiration. 3. Miraculous deed or event; remarkable phenomenon.
A simple definition of wonder is "something remarkable, strange or surprising and the emotion of puzzled interest that comes with it!" Wonder is tinged with admiration and wanting to know more!
Even though God is so huge, so Holy, and so Sovereign we can get tremendous revelation and insight into His plans and His ways; we are constantly striving to understand more of the mysteries of God. Although God is big God, He is also a very personal God. He is our Father and Friend, our Counselor and Comforter... He speaks into our lives to draw us near to Him in a very intimate way. This intimacy leads to the life changing stuff that incorporates us into the plans He has for us that brings change to our families, our regions, our cities, states and to nations. He wants us to wonder and awe in a reverential way that will lead us to seek Him more and never be satisfied with the understanding we have.
We are God's kids... so that means we have His DNA. We are creatures in His likeness who are seeing, knowing, hearing, and powerful by His destiny for us. However, we are also frail little children in many ways and are always a work in progress. God is so gentle and kind He very often kneels down on one knee to come to our level just to embrace us and love us and gently lead us to the next level—through a process of healing, refining, and instructing.
