Sometimes I think if only we could see some of the miracles Jesus performed, we could have faith like His disciples…alright, their faith was often just like ours, weak and not very effective. Jesus told them “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not yet seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29) Why do we need a sign to prove Jesus to us? God has told us of His love since the very beginning, but time and again we have failed to accept that love and respond to His call.
We seem to expect that God will show us marvelous examples of His power on a regular basis so that our faith can be strong. Well, doesn’t He? Maybe we need to redefine what constitutes a miracle. If we are honest with ourselves, everything we see is a miracle of God’s creation. We aren’t capable of making any of this happen on our own! God shows us His love through reaching out to us continually, wanting to be connected to all of us always.
Take time to be thankful for the miracles in your life, the everyday things that are God’s gift to us. We don’t need amazing, out of the ordinary happenings to know God’s love and power, we just need to accept that He is with us and be willing to do as He asks so that we can be part of His miracles.
Wise and wonderful God, you created a whole universe to show Your power and glory, yet You made us to be partners in Your continuing work. That is the most awesome miracle of all! Help us to feel the amazing love You send us every day, and to share that love with everyone.
