God doesn’t typically defy the laws of physics to deliver miracles to us. He has only parted the Red Sea once…and there has only been one burning bush. Most miracles are very special, customized gifts that only we can recognize.
I had one last week. When our plans for an extended family gathering were interrupted by an unexpected health issue, we were scrambling for another option. We needed a place for 10 people (4 families with kids) and there was no place meeting our needs left on the market. We exhausted over 20 hours chasing rental properties that did not exist.
We gave it our best effort, and it wasn’t enough…at least not until God delivered the miracle. Our family spent our July 4th in a 4 bedroom house on a lake with a boat and jet ski. Unbelievable.
What made this a miracle?
- There was no time left on the clock. By the day before we were supposed to depart for vacation, we had given up the search.
- The solution came from an unexpected source. The house was not listed on any rental site. It came through a referral from a friend who knew we were panicking.
- It was better than we could have done ourselves. The size of the house, the access to the boats, and the close location were better than anything we had tried to rent.
Is it possible that God is delivering miracles…but you did not recognize them?
Thanks for listening.
