Write those stories! he told me. People need to hear that God is still doing miracles today – that He is working through people to bring answers to prayer.
Those stories are coming together and I plan to change this site to reflect that focus – how we can be open to being the miracle, bringing God’s message, God’s touch, God’s answer to the prayers of others.
Many of you know I’ve had “it” happen to me many times. God has directed me to go somewhere, to minister to someone – sometimes one I know, and other times to strangers. Other times, God has sent His children to me with a blessing. Are these “miracles”? Aren’t they? What is a Miracle?
I’ve often been hesitant to call these God-led happenings miracles,sometimes even saying well, maybe it was a little miracle. Yet, whether I’ve been on the receiving end of one of these amazing and unexplainable happenings, or following His guidance as “God’s delivery girl”, it certainly feels like a miracle. It has been miraculous to know the living God, to be a part of God’s moving in my life and to deliver His message of hope and encouragement in the lives of others.
To think that God – Almighty God – would lead someone to bless me, or use me to bring another the answer to their prayer.
The dictionary definition of a miracle is: An event that appears inexplicable by the laws of nature and so is held to be supernatural in origin or an act of God.
Scripture is full of such stories – God using ordinary people to minister to others, to fulfill His plans, and to answer prayers. Often they are not the people we would expect – unassuming or even reluctant at times.
Scripture is also filled with encouragement for us to be those ordinary people sent by an extraordinary God to minister to others – to Be The Miracle!
For today, I encourage you to pray – to ask God to help you to Be the Miracle that someone is waiting for. Be open, ready, be filled with God’s Word and His Spirit so that as He directs you, you can let that fountain spill over into others. And for today, I pray for you –
I pray that God will fill your mouth with His words
His actions, His answers
and that you will be the miracle that will point another to heaven, answering their specific need.
I know there are thousands of stories out there similar to mine – and more waiting to happen.
I’d love to hear about the miracles God brings to you or through you this week!
Not if they happen, but WHEN, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org – I’ll be waiting to hear how God helped you to
Be the Miracle!
Acts 22:15 For you will be a witness for Him to all men of what you have seen and heard.
