Are You Looking For a Miracle?
I don’t know about you, but many times I find myself looking for that “massive miracle” that is going to change my life forever. I think that no matter what your heavenly beliefs are that most people are always looking for the next big thing.
Whether it’s a job or relationship change, some kind of fortune that is going to fall into your life and then there is the most popular, when I hit the lotto baby. Lol
Even as believers in Christ and in knowing the miracles that God has granted over the years, aren’t we always hoping and praying for God to intervene and just fix everything in our lives?
Let’s look at just a few:
Matthew 9 (NIV) - Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralyzed Man
9:1 Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. 2 Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.” And the man was healed.
Matthew 14:13-21 (NIV) - Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand
18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
Acts 2: 24 - How About the Big One
But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. (speaking of Jesus)
Here’s my challenge to you this month:
How about instead of looking for the huge miracle in our lives, we become thankful every day for the “baby miracles” in our lives. Like the fact that we wake each morning, or that we have food to eat in a world that’s starving or that God protects our racers each time they hurl themselves 100 feet through the air.
I know they are easy to take for granted, but I urge you to look for the “baby miracles” that happen to you constantly as you go through life and to be thankful to the Lord above for making them happen.
