Have you ever witnessed a miracle? I would love to hear about it if you have. Please send me an email back!
The miracles of Jesus in the Bible strengthen my faith. One of my favorites is when He turned water into wine (John 2:1-11). Not because I like wine all that much (don’t get me wrong, a nice glass every now and then is great) but because this miracle showed us how much Jesus cares about every detail of our life. In His time, running out of wine at a wedding would have been disgraceful and reflected poorly on the hosts. Jesus stepped in and decided to show His power the day He turned water into wine at the wedding. The Bible says after He performed this miracle, the disciples believed. How remarkable would it be to witness six stone water jars, each holding twenty to thirty gallons, changed into wine?
In my life, I have witnessed and been a part of many miracles of Jesus.
Once, my grandpa had a damaged esophagus. His medical team told him that he would never be able to eat or drink again normally. He was also facing a terrible infection because food bypassed his throat and went straight into his lungs. He needed emergency surgery to fix the infection in his lungs. However, they were not going to touch his esophagus. I prayed over his throat before surgery. When he returned from surgery, the doctors could not explain it, but his esophagus was fixed—miracles of Jesus.
After a speaking engagement several years ago, a mother with her two children came up requesting prayer. The mother had a rare stress condition that paralyzed her writing arm. She had not written anything in years. We prayed for Jesus to heal her. Later they came and found me and showed me a piece of paper where the mother had signed her name with the hand/arm that had been paralyzed—miracles of Jesus.
Sometimes the miracles of Jesus are big, like the examples above, and sometimes they are small. Have you trained yourself to see miracles all around you? Life itself is a miracle.
I was praying for a friend the other night. She is facing yet again more medical concerns. For her, it has been constant. I felt God lead me to acknowledge that the miracle of His presence is just as big as a physical miracle.
Some of us just need to be reminded;
God is for you.
God is with you.
God will never leave you.
God is present in your pain.
God will redeem your pain.
The God of the universe, who spoke the world into motion, lives inside you. Think about that for a moment. That is truly remarkable.
God’s presence is a miracle.
Walk in that power today.
