With all that is going on in the world today, we all are looking to God for a miracle. When God works miracles, they are amazing, and cause even the doubters pause to wonder, "Could God really be who He says He is?" But for most of us, we will never experience a big, sudden miracle like the ones we see on TV or in the movies. That does not mean we do not experience miracles though. In Ephesians, it says that through Jesus' power within us, we are able to do "immeasurably more than we ask or imagine." While we may think of curing sickness and raising life back from the dead as "miracles," so also is living life with a devoted spouse, being blessed with skill and meaningful work, having the means with which to bless others in life, and even just each new day God gives us as a new opportunity to serve Him. When we begin to think that miracles aren't real just because we haven't received a Hollywood screenplay-worthy experience, remember this: Never allow the perceived absence of big and sudden miracles in your life to overshadow the small and slow miracles that God works for you everyday. Today, thank God for the incredible series of events, that can only be described as miraculous, that have led you to where you are today, who is with you there, and the next step He has for you.
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." -- Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
