Thoughts on Miracles, the Unintended Knockdown, and the Red Sea

As I talked about faith yesterday, I'm dwelling on miracles today.

Our faith in God is not the resting place of miracles, God is.  It is not dependent on us.

Our Powerful and Mighty God orders our steps, listens to our cries, and interweaves the makings of miracles everywhere.

Yes, He does listen and He does answer.  Yet, when our goal is His Glory the answer may be a telling of your story in a way you didn't expect.  This may make the miracle greater, but invisible in the current circumstance so that the eternal (bigger) picture may have MIRACLE written in bright unearthly letters all the way across it.

Then there is the unintended knock down.

When we believe God is changing the course of events, many try to prepare you for the opposite.  "I could happen, but....."

Then where is our faith?  It's been knocked down a notch by casual remark that was not meant to wound in the slightest.

Yet the "knocking down" doesn't need help, does it?  We are completely capable of doing that on our own.

Oh yes, not the doubt in God, but the doubt that you have heard right, are smart enough, wise enough, or good enough.

Side note: This isn't all bad.  We are arrogant creatures and when we recognize God's holiness, we need to realize we are but raindrops in His Holy Flood.  (Though I will admit we need to hold on to what He has shared with us with tenacity.)

Our Heavenly Father IS a God of Miracles though.  He parts the seas yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

"I have learned to use the word 'impossible' with the greatest caution" Author Unknown

You are the God who performs miracles;
    you display your power among the peoples.
                                                Psalm 77:14
People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”  
                                                                        Mark 7:37

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord drove the sea back by  a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.  And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.
                                                                                                           Exodus 14:21-22

As I ruminate on miracles today, I'd love to hear your thoughts.


Have a blessed day friends, full of God's presence changing and ordering all your steps.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
