Do you believe in miracles? Some do, some don’t. Some say providence, others say coincidence. Truth is, I don’t believe any of us are 100% on side or the other. I lean much more toward the former than the latter. I would say I’m about 80% / 20% toward miracles and providence.
Have you ever thought about what a miracle is? It’s something supernatural that we can not explain. Doesn’t that describe a lot of things we encounter everyday? Which of you can explain how grass grows and how the original seed came into being? We might be able to explain that water and heat cause the seed to germinate. We might be able to explain that nutrients from the soil combined with water and sunlight cause it to grow. We might be able to explain photosynthesis. But, who knows where the very first seed came from?
How much more complex are our human bodies? Our brains? The working of trillions of tiny components as one body? If that wasn’t complex enough, there is a whole spiritual world that we don’t see, but are right in the middle of. We can’t begin to explain that because we can’t see and study it. Miracles should increase our faith. How much more should our faith increase if we begin to recognize the miracles around us everyday? I try to see them and when I get a glimpse, it absolutely amazes me.
I pray each us look for the miracles and increase our faith. Our faith is what gets you through those really tough times.
Psalm 146:6-10 He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them—he remains faithful forever. He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous. The LORD watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.
