Your Miracle

The closer the Lord draws me to Himself, the more He blesses me with the knowledge of who He is, the more difficult it is for me to comprehend those who mock Him or deny His existence.

I speak regularly with people who want proof, they want some form of documentation apart from the Scriptures, a secular account from the days the Lord walked with mankind. Of course, it would not matter if they had a photograph of Him walking on water and a letter signed by Him professing His love for them. “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (2 Cor. 5:7) And so while they would be amazed perhaps for a moment, it would soon wear off, and their momentary faith would be revealed for what it is, transitory and not personal.

It takes very little time for humanity to forget God, the Book of Judges is just one example in the Scriptures, it is as if some individuals need a continuous flow of either what they would consider miracles, or the complete lack of ever being inconvenienced to experience His love, grace and mercy. “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” (Phil. 4:11)

Those who have been crucified with Christ are always, as much as lies within them, prepared for the worst-case scenario, and they are continuously thankful for each day of peace, this is one way to know that a person is truly saved, circumstances or the possible adverse consequences to their lives does not alter their praise and adoration of He who sits on the throne. The flesh may tremble and quiver, but the soul is always prepared and desirous, to go home.

I believe that each of us, at least in the beginning of our walk with Christ, need some form of proof, some unquestionable deed performed by the Lord that validates us giving over our lives to Him, and He always accommodates that desire. But as we grow close to Him, not in accordance of the length of time served, but when the distance between us and the Most High lessens, we need to see those miracles, no matter how large or small, less and less, for our eyes begin to fix on Christ, not the deeds that He has done as recorded in His Holy Book, not the accounts throughout all the Scriptures of everyone of His attributes that have been revealed to us, but on Him alone, His person, who He is more than what He has done.

The faith of the justified in Christ does not need to see mountains moved, they don’t need to see any miracles whatsoever, but in those rare moments that they do, He will provide, and even if He doesn’t, that doesn’t change who He is in our eyes. “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)” (Heb. 10:23)

Most of the people that you have met in this life are going to be screaming for mercy a few moments after they die, and they will not receive any, they will in that moment have all the proof they were looking for, and it will be too late. Those who have been crucified with Christ are being sanctified in this life, we are growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord, (2 Peter 3:18) we do not need any more miracles, we need guidance, we need to be shown the truth, we need Spiritual discernment, hearts that can discern between good and evil, we need wisdom. But most of all we need to understand our place, we are slaves, servants of the Most High God, ambassadors of the kingdom of heaven, heirs to eternal life. The next time you think you need a miracle, just look in the mirror, and ask your Savior, “Why me?”
