Expecting a Life of Miracles

God has been challenging me lately about living with greater expectation of experiencing His miracle power. Christianity isn’t just about personal transformation of alignment with the moral principles of God, but is a daily walk in the power of Christ’s presence. And from what I read in Acts 2:22, His presence means a life of miracles, wonders, and signs: “Jesus of Nazareth, approved by God among you by miracles, wonders, and signs…”

A miracle is “an event or effect contrary to the established constitution and course of things; a deviation from the known laws of nature; a supernatural event”.  While God established a natural order to things, giving laws that provide structure, He is not bound by those structures. Such laws were put in place for one thing – the performing of His will. And when those laws and structures have become corrupt or dysfunctional regarding His plans, then He has the power to bring it back into alignment for the fulfilling of His purposes. Light supersedes darkness.

If miracles were a part of life’s “norm” for God’s Son, then it is to be a part of our daily walk with God as His children, too. Jesus experienced miracles in provision (the multiplying of food for the thousands); miracles in finances (finding money in a fish’s mouth—and knowing where to find it); in health (the countless healings of people); deliverance and raising the dead to life.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He hasn’t stopped doing miracles, but still performs the Father’s will through His Body; He continues to heal and provide in miraculous ways for our needs, setting things in accordance with divine order—even if it means sometimes altering the structure and rearranging the box of nature’s rules to uphold His divine purposes.

Sometimes we don’t have expectations for miracles because our eyes see the natural circumstances around us and we believe the negative message they tell us. But no matter what your situation, God says to recognize His presence and expect a miracle. Have faith in God who performs all things for you, and who works on behalf of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.

    That’s great, Kathy! Praying for you and His manifest presence in your area of need. The best way I know to stop stressing is start thanking Him for the answer before you see it on the horizon….knowing He is a good God whose plans for you are good! ly
