Check out what the Bible says with regards to the miracles of God in our lives.
Want to know a real miracle? It is in the words from today's reading. The miracle is that God is there for us! He will strengthen us. He will help us. I love the picture of God holding us up with his right hand. That's His power hand! It is as though nothing else matters but us as I read this verse. That's a miracle beyond anything I could ever expect. I hope you aren't missing that miracle in your life today.
Yes, I know that it sounds like this verse is saying everything will be OK. I wish that was always the case when we choose to follow this God that loves us. No, sometimes bad times are part of the plan to make this world a different place for the light of God to shine through the darkness. If you are expecting the miracle of a perfect life, I'm afraid you will ultimately be disappointed. That's just not what God promises.
There are times He takes us out of challenging situations. That's a miracle I pray you experience today if times are bad. But that's not His guarantee. What He promise is that He will go through the challenging times with us. Sometimes going through the situation is more important to God's plan than being taken out of that same situation.
It is when we view our situation as an obligation laced with "Have to" tasks that we tend to overlook the miracles happening all around us. Take time today to appreciate all that God has done and is doing in your life. Look in the faces of those around you for a glimpse of the miracle God wants to show you today. Don't let "Have to" living make your soul run itself ragged trying to make sure your situation stays just as you want it to be. Let God be the provider of the strength, and direction even in times that are challenging to the good life you have worked so hard to build for yourself. That's the only way you will be able to live out this victor status in the miracle filled life God has planned for you today.
