MIRACLES

John 2

“This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.”

John 2:1-11

Do I believe in miracles?  You better believe I do, and even more so every time that I see one happen. Needless to say, I witnessed a two minute miracle at our church recently.  Let me tell you my story.

Two minutes or less before the service was to begin on July 2, we didn’t have any signal to the large monitor in the sanctuary.  When you spend money on equipment for the sound booth, accompaniment DVD’s and books for the choir, and time and energy of everybody involved, and it all comes down to whether everything is working properly at the exact instant you need it to work flawlessly, you can do a lot of nervous thinking, praying, and sweating in a short amount of time.  I mean, a lot of heavy, nervous sweating!

Thanks to the ladies who were praying over in Nicole’s Sunday school class that everything would start working, and thanks to Joe Thompson’s expertise to try another way of getting us the signal that we needed. Praise the Lord, we had a signal right at the time the service was to start.   More than that, thanks to our mighty God who does all things well.

Do you believe in miracles?  Whether you do or not, God is still in the miracle-working business. They happen all around us every day.  You get up in the morning, that’s a miracle.  You see the sunrise, that’s a miracle.  You witness the soul-changing transformation of a person coming forward to ask Jesus in his heart, that’s a miracle “of love and grace” as the old song puts it.   A loved one or a friend comes home from the hospital, that’s a miracle.

Thank God for the miracles He has done in your life.  Thank the Lord for the miracles He has done in the lives of your friends, co-workers, relatives and neighbors.  Give God the glory, great things He has done!

Lord, You are THE miracle worker!  Give me an ever-growing gratefulness for the miracles You perform in my life everyday!  Help me to be aware of each and every miracle each and every day.
