What do you think about miracles? Have you ever seen one? Have you experienced one? If you’ve ever read the Bible, you’ve probably read about some, but that was then right? Can we see miracles today?
I believe that the God who performed miracles in the time of the Bible is the same God I know and serve today. The dictionary defines a miracle as “an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.”
I’ve actually experienced a few miracles myself and I wish I had time to tell you about them. But for today, I will just share one that happened a few months ago. I was walking towards a cafe and my foot must have slipped because I began to fall and slip epically and embarrassingly, head first into the cafe. It turned out that I had injured my ankle so badly that I couldn’t walk on it.
I was on crutches and two days later, I saw a couple from my church who offered to pray for my ankle. I wasn’t sure what would happen but I thought anything would be better than the pain I was in. They prayed for God to heal my ankle and then asked me to try and walk. Sadly there was no change and I could still not walk. So they offered to pray a second time and when I got up to see if I could walk, the pain had worsened! I was just about to call it quits when they asked to pray one more time. I allowed them to but this time something was different. I felt warmth come over my whole body. When I got up to try and walk, all the pain was gone and I took a step without my crutches. To my amazement, I was able to walk, completely pain free! I put my crutches away and could walk from that minute on. God miraculously healed my ankle and I am so grateful!
Okay, maybe I have time for one more! A few weeks back, a girl that I knew asked me to pray for her wrist as she was in a lot of pain. She’s a dancer and she could hardly use her wrist due to a past injury. I put her wrist in my hand and began to pray and ask God to heal her wrist. As I was praying, I felt her bones move underneath my fingers. To be honest, it freaked me out a little!
A week after we prayed, she came running up to me to say that her wrist was completely fine – all pain had gone and she had full use of it again. Incredible!
I shared these stories with you just to get you thinking about miracles and how they might fit into your life.
I hope to unpack this topic over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned!
