Have you witnessed a miracle in your life or someone you know? I know I have many times, and each time is just as exciting as the time prior. Miracles still happen every day, but can we recognize them? Are we believing for a miracle? Are you still waiting for your miracle?
I was doing a little Bible study on a chapter in the book of Luke. Check out what Luke 7:22 says, and see if you notice a trend.
22 So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy[a are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.
I see the following:
-the blind receive sight
-the lame walk
-the lepers are cleansed
-the deaf can hear
-the dead are raised
-the good news is proclaimed to the poor
What do you see?
I see miracles.
So what’s wrong with this man Jesus?
Jesus wasn’t what others thought he should be.
Some things haven’t changed. People still don’t believe in Jesus.
Be careful you don’t discount Jesus because you can’t see him or he isn’t who you think he should be.
Did you know the Jewish leaders and teachers of the law so with their own eyes Jesus perform miracles and yet they still rejected him and viewed him as a threat? In fact, they set out to kill him.
I don’t know about you, but I continue to put my hope and faith in a man I have never seen, and in whom I believe performed miracles when he walked the earth. I believe miracles still happen today.
I believe the Lord sees me and knows my name.
“What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” Psalm 8:4
Oh, thank you, Lord, for all you have done for me and those I love. I thank you for answered prayer and for allowing me to see your answers to prayers up close. Thank you, Lord, for your love, mercy, and forgiveness. I am nothing without you. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
