Everyday Miracles

January 2, 2012 — Leave a comment

Yesterday at church we had a guest preacher, Dr. John Maxwell who spoke on miracles. He taught about Jesus feeding the five thousand. One of the points that he said that really stuck with me was the partnership we have to make with God for the miracle that we are needing. We tend to miss the miracles that God could do when we don’t partner with him and do our part, taking responsibility for whatever part He is asking of us so that He can perform that miracle. It’s like the boy from the story in Mark 6, he didn’t have to give up his lunch but when he did Jesus fed the five thousand. He did his part to partner with Jesus and then the miracle happened.

I also loved how in the message yesterday he said that anyone who had a problem is a candidate for a miracle. That is so awesome and something I think many of us need to hear. I think that many times we look at whatever problems we might have in our lives and we don’t count that as a need for a miracle because it’s not giant like feeding five thousand people. Any need, big or small makes for an opportunity to come to God and ask for a miracle. What we might consider small or even irrelevant is important to God. These problems that are placed before us, even the small ones, are a great way to remind us that we were never meant to do things on our own!

I saw this video the other day and wanted to share it with everyone. Since the song Redeemer came out by Sanctus Real I have absolutely loved it, it will be stuck in my head forever after hearing it on the radio. This video is the band telling each of their stories and what the song means to them. I love the line in the song where it says “I don’t have every answer in life, but I’m trusting You one day at a time.” God provides us with what we need to make it each day, He provides the miracles we need and that is amazing!

 

I have seen this video a few times and each time I am brought to tears. It is the story of faith, God’s love, grace, blessings and a miracle. This family talks about the need for their daughter to have a heart transplant and how prayer and God is getting them through it all. God performs miracles every day, and we are blessed by those miracles! God is good, all the time!
