A Million Little Miracles
By: LaToya Dawkins
My lips will shout for joy, when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have redeemed. (Psalms 71:23, ESV)
A miracle testimony of a believer or even a non-believer is one of the most powerful testimonies to hear; to hear or witness how God took what was humanly impossible and made it divinely possible is awesome. It reminds me of the ministry of Jesus. His ministry was wrapped up in miracles of healing, salvation, and even raising people from the dead. Before He resurrected Lazarus, Jesus says, “I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around that they may believe that you sent me. (John 11:42, ESV). When Lazarus rose from the dead, the plot of the death of Jesus was fully underway because he had been fully “seen.” They feared the people’s belief in Jesus. Miracles are not just for the one it happens to, it is for the ones around. Our faith is strengthened, our eyes are open, and our expectation for a miracle is secured. Jesus did all of these miracles and the message was clear over and over, “I am here, God sent me”. When I reflect on my life and the million little miracles (and I say “little” due to the abundance and to the connotation that miracles have to be bigger than life events), they all seem reflect back to that same message, “I am here, God sent me”. I have a song on loop at the moment, “A Million Little Miracles” by Maverick City Music. Here is a portion of that song: All my life I've been carried by grace, don’t ask me how 'cause I can't explain, It’s nothing short of a miracle I'm here. I’ve got some blessings that I don't deserve, I’ve got some scars but that’s how you learn, It’s nothing short of a miracle I'm here. I think it over and it doesn't add up. I know it comes from above. I've got miracles on miracles, a million little miracles. Miracles on miracles, count your miracles One, two, three, four, I can't even count them all.” Even if God never does another thing, He’s already done enough. The miracle that is al-ways present is because God sent Jesus into the world, His death and resurrection was the greatest miracle of all-Jesus is near.
Thought for the Week: Even in my suffering, confusion, and doubt, Jesus is near.
