A little over a month ago I asked this question here on this blog, because I knew I had been blessed to be in the presence of a miracle unfolding. Although we knew it would take time for the culmination of this miracle to unfold, the reality of the miracle was sealed in my mind that day, because ONLY God could have orchestrated the details to occur in such supernatural succession, that it would have been foolish to doubt that His plan would succeed. As the details surrounding this monumental event continued to unfold, more began to believe in the reality of this miracle. God’s hand was in this, around this, before this and in front of this. He had prepared the minds and the hearts of those He needed to move as quickly and decisively as He needed them too.
Being privy to details that only a few knew, my mind was blown at how God chose to bless the faithfulness of a couple, while rocking the worlds of those that surrounded them. I do not think that it was a coincidence that He chose to center this miracle in the presence of a core group that had the capacity to influence a multitude…He wanted us to see first hand, to be ‘eye-witnesses’ and share His story — GO, TELL — just like others did thousands of years ago when He walked on this earth, and even before and after. The God of the Bible is and has always been the God of today. He can do in your life, what He has done in countless others…we just need to believe that He can. He shows up, in the midst of our everyday Christianity to remind us that He can to exceedingly more than we could ever ask or imagine.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21, NIV
This is not just a story of a baby, just like the miracle of Jesus is not just the story of a virgin birth. God is preparing us for greater things, your experience and perhaps your participation in the things of God are limited only by the depth of your belief in what God is capable of – “according to his power that is at work within us…”
He is able, are you able to believe?
