Definition: Webster – “An extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs.”
Do I believe in miracles? Yes I do. Christianity is a religion of miracles. If you take miracles out of our faith, we have nothing left. You might have a set of ethical instructions, but there would be no power to change the heart.
I’m asking God to revive our belief in the miraculous…I understand the lack of faith from those who do not know God, but where is our faith? Often, our struggle is not faith in God’s ability, but faith in his willingness. The result is no expectation.
Miracles of Jesus:
- Water to wine
- Feeding the 5,000
- Walking on the water
- Calming the Sea of Galilee
- Healing the lame, the leper, the blind, the deaf, and various other diseases
- Cast out demons
- Raising the dead
Quote by C.S. Lewis – “The central miracle of the Bible is the Incarnation (God becoming a man). Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this.”
I pray for miracles every day. I pray and believe God will do them. But I also understand God works according to his own will. I learn to trust his sovereignty.
God can break into our world anytime he chooses to do a miracle. The same God who made the laws of nature can break the laws of nature.
As we read the Scripture, we see that the New Testament church lived with an expectation of the power of God.
What could happen if we lived daily with an expectation that God will hear and answer prayer? All things are possible. Heb. 11….God rewards those who diligently seek him.”
As we seek him, recognize that miracles don’t depend on your ability to articulate the situation to God. There are no magic words. You don’t need to know what to say. You just need to know where to turn. We turn to Jesus. If we seek him first, he won’t be our last resort.
Today’s Challenge: Ask God to revive your belief in the miraculous. Whatever your situation, don’t stop believing God to do things that in the natural are impossible. Learn to trust his sovereignty when he doesn’t answer the way you want him to. Remember every miracle points to the saving grace of Jesus.
