HOW MIRACLES HELP US & OTHERS

In ancient times, the best way to keep a miracle alive was to retell it. hey’d sit around the fire and talk about the amazing events that happened through God’s intervention.  Like the lost sheep that the shepherd thought was dead, found stuck in a bush. Like the food that came from heaven when they thought they’d die in the wilderness – the tablets which carried the words of commandments from God Himself.  In the telling of stories like this, they may get embellished along the way and become even more miraculous than they started out to be.

As time progressed, the hand written word was used to record these events.  Later, the printing press helped to carry stories to people and places in remote areas as well as the common man.

As truth can be altered by man, we could say that the miracles of the Bible are just an elaboration on an old story.  It may seem somewhat outlandish – like a man building an ark for himself, his family and two of every species.  The rain destroyed everything in its path, except for those on the ark.  How about the guy who got swallowed by a whale and spat out on the shore of a city he resisted, to do God’s will.  Those stories are in God’s Word.  We can depend on their accuracy and truth, because God breathed them into ordinary men’s pens, to record for future generations. By the truth of His Word we see many miracles.

When they happen in your life, do you talk about them? Or do you keep them to yourself?  I believe when we share those events, someone else may profit.  The miracle of God’s provision, His healing power, His omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence all assure us that God is working through us.  If you’ve experienced a miracle, think of how it may give hope to someone who’s going through similar situations.  Examples include the death of a child – going through financial ruin – suffering the loss of job – going through addiction, abuse, divorce or any other difficulty.

Today we have access to one of the world’s greatest inventions for communication.  The internet opens doors and hearts of suffering people.  We can use this implement to share our stories – our experiences and our miracles.

Every living thing is a miracle.  God formed each one and knew what would become of them before they were born.  He had a plan already laid out for each life.  It’s time for us to stop preaching to the choir and let everyone know what God has done in your life.  The strength you’ve received from God will help you share your story with others. There are a lot of hurting people out there and God’s miracles are waiting for all of them.

“We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.”  H. G. Wells

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Thank you for this! Especially: “The strength you’ve received from God will help you share your story with others.” I will cling to those words as I write my memoir!
