Miracles happen on a daily basis, but many do not even notice–even those in front of their face.
They look to reasoning. It is in reasoning–the precursor to doubt, that they justify and explain away the very thing that would draw them in to know Me.
I cause miracles to happen ‘expressly’ to love people, and to express My Love as tangible, personal…
A miracle doesn’t have to be big to be classified as such, it just has to be impossible for man to do without Divine intervention. I will intervene, if you will pay attention.
Remember, to reason is to enlist your mind. I dwell in the heart of faith. You may have Me in mind when you act in faith but, if you don’t mind, I’d rather ‘prove’ your faith by acting out a miracle before you. If you’ll just take notice, I’ll show you…
Does that sound reasonable to you? Then it’s not faith, and it’s not a miracle.
For faith doesn’t reason!
“For if the message declared by angels was valid and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard him, while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his own will.” Hebrews 2:2-4
“And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, so that the throng wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.” Matthew 15:30-31
“And God did extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were carried away from his body to the sick, and diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them.” Acts 19:11
“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, then healers, helpers, administrators, speakers in various kinds of tongues. ” I Corinthians 12:27-28
“Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? Thus Abraham “believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.” So you see that it is men of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham who had faith.” Galatians 3:5-7
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.” I Corinthians 13:1-3
“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.” II Thessalonians 3:5
