don't miss the small miracles

The humble will see their God at work and be glad.  Let all who seek God’s help be encouraged.

I love stories.  But the best stories are the true ones that speak of life and real situations.  That’s why people love reality TV.  Can’t get enough of it. 

Yet what I am talking about is people sharing what God is doing in their lives.  We hear about people accepting Jesus and their lives being changes.  We hear about healing as people battle health issues and become well.  We hear about God opening doors for work or help and a number of other things.  God is still in the miracle business. 

Some of those miracles are big, and some are small.  Let me ask you a simple question: do we miss the small miracles that God does?  It is the answers to answer that are off our mental radar.  This could be the answer of help with a test at the doctor’s office or the test at school.  It could be the prayer for your child to not be sick again or to be able to get through a meeting or have wisdom.

I believe it is the small miracles that we miss through each day that string together to make our faith grow strong.  We look for miracles all the time.  The healing from cancer or the rainbow after the flood are awesome miracles.  The small miracles that only you will see or know are just as important as the big ones.

In fact God says that if we are faithful in the small things that He will help us with the big things.  Our prayer lives and the miracles that follow remind us that God loves us and wants to work in every area of our lives.  God loves us and has a plan for each of us.

Watch for what God is doing.  Don’t miss the small miracles.  God is working to save those who are lost.  God is still working in the things that matter to me and to you.  Keep on praying.  Keep on looking.  Again, don’t miss the small miracles.  God is at work!

Romans 1:16   NLT
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ.  It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.
