You probably have witnessed a miracle but maybe you didn’t recognize it at the time. Dictionary.com defines a miracle as a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences. I like that definition, but everyone has their own definition of what constitutes the miraculous. A miracle, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. I’ll share my definition with you Sunday.
God is certainly a God of the miraculous and once you know Him and perceive His glory, you’ll see miracles everywhere you look. I saw a baby today in a store and I thought, “I wonder if this infant will ever know how impossible his existence is”. Someone has calculated that the chance of anyone of us ever being born is one in four hundred trillion. You may as well say it’s an impossibility. You are a miracle! The planet you live on is a miracle. The air you breathe, the food you eat, everyone you see, the sky you gaze into at night and the thoughts that you are thinking at this moment are all miracles that were set into motion by an intelligent and creative power that we cannot fathom.
Do you want evidence that miracles are real? Just look in the mirror at your own eyes. That’s what convinced a physician friend of mine who was a professed atheist to become a Christian. He was being taught how the human eye works and he realized that it was impossible that this could have just happened. The staggering intelligence that it took to design the human eye brought my once unbelieving friend to faith in Christ Jesus. Now he is a renowned speaker and expert in Christian apologetics. No one can convince him that God isn’t real and that we are not the most impressive miracles in the universe.
You are something special and your outward appearance is only the tip of the iceberg. The depths of your soul and spirit can only be calculated by your Creator. And He knows your name. He knows the number of hairs on your head and He loves you more than you can imagine. Think about that for a while.
