Miracles are real
Romans 8 vs 28
“AND we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Listening to people’s experiences is always very interesting, people have such fascinating stories. Unfortunately the bulk of those stories are never written or documented but if you listen intently you can’t help but marvel at the miracles that happen on a daily basis.
People tell amazing and inspiring stories that leave you in total shock. However, our natural mindset’s default reaction is to doubt and believe it can’t be true. I suppose we are set in our ways and we believe that for a miracle to occur it must conform to a certain standard, it must be dramatic, the heavens must part and anything short of that is not really a miracle. We attribute so many things to coincidence and luck.
I was told a very touching story by a woman pastor who got sick and lost her husband and child at some point in her life. I was amazed at how she related her story to me and how painful and gruesome the experience was, she opened up and shared such intimate detail. At the end of our conversation she attributed all her blessings to the Lord and said that she totally lived for Him.
She is such a pleasant person who is so full of life and she is always willing to share her faith and the happiness she has found in God. She has so much to be bitter about; a dream deferred, hope shattered and unimaginable loss, but she is the epitome of happiness. She has come to terms with her reality and she believes she is being used as an instrument to bring hope and faith to other women.
Her story, although I have shortened it, is more detailed and is quite similar to the miracles we read about in the Bible; the miracles we wish would happen in our own lives. Through the eyes of this lady pastor one can clearly tell that the Lord is alive and reigning supreme.
My niece sent me a postcard last night with a message that reads: “Don’t think of the things you didn’t get after praying, think of the countless blessings God gave you without asking.” I guess after hearing this lady’s story, it begins to dawn on us that we have so many blessings that we take for granted. It’s human to complain, and to want and wish for more to the point where we become ungrateful.
Today, take time to list all the miracles that have happened this past week not only in your life but to those close to you. As you do, remember that God reigns and that whatever you may be going through will come to pass, it’s just a matter of time.
He will come alive in your life and show you new ways. He will give you a new life and above all, He will take care of you. Be blessed For More Info: Visit our website: www.thefig-tree.org Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org Catch us on StarFM, Monday to Friday at 0620hours.
