“As for you, lift up your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and the sons of Israel shall go through the midst of the sea on dry land.
Matthew 15:31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
Matthew 9:6-7 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house.
The Word of God is filled with His miracles. Some of His wonderful works are known, even by non-believers such as water into wine; others are more realized by believers, say the woman who touched the hem of His garment and was healed, for example.
From Creation to the Second Coming of Christ, there are so many times our Lord has done miraculous works. What miracles has He done in your life (Don’t forget to include the most substantial, Salvation!)?
Sometimes we do not recognize a miracle for what it is. We have three children and a granddaughter, so yes, I clearly saw 4 miracles there. For every ONE I acknowledge, there are countless He has done that I have not given thanks for, I am certain. It isn’t because I do not appreciate what He has done or is doing in my life. Is it because I am so blessed that I do not fully comprehend His miracles for what they are? I hope not, but I am afraid that may be the case.
Let’s take a closer look around us and be thankful for everything He has given, allowed and done for us, starting with His Son! What word, other than “miracle”. would you use to describe the incarnation, all God, all Man, the life, death and resurrection on our Savior?
We may set an even more sincere value on our appreciation if we saw things as miracles rather than coincidence, “good luck” or even worse, a product of OUR “good living”!
