Do You Believe In Miracles? I recently watched a movie titled, Breakthrough. It’s based on a true story about a young boy who falls through the ice at a lake and goes under for 20 minutes before being rescued. His mother prayed over him and miraculously against all odds, which seemed humanly impossible, he survived and walked out of the hospital 2 weeks later.
Psalm 77:14 “You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.”
I believe in science, and I consider myself an academic person, but I’ve seen God break the rules-and it’s so cool when He does. I have seen miracles in my life, and many of you have too. They are testimonies to the resurrection, not only that Jesus was raised from the dead, but that He will resurrect this world and bring it back to life. He wants us to be a hopeful people that believe in miracles.
In John 6 we see the miracle of Jesus feeding five thousand. Great multitudes were following Jesus at the time, but why? John 6:2 says “And a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His miracles which He did on them that were diseased.” People do that today, do they not?
Do you have a problem today? There was a monumental problem that day – 5,000 hungry people and hardly a bit of food! You may have a serious problem. Take that problem and double it. Now, double it again. Now, I want to ask you a question. Is it too big for God? Of course not. He is the Lord. The first part of Genesis 18:14 says, “Is any thing too hard for the Lord?” There is no problem too big for Jesus to solve.
When Jesus solves problems, He uses people. Jesus used a little lad. Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother found someone, “There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?” John 6:9
God is not asking you to give what you don’t have, He’s asking you to give what you do have. God specializes in doing extraordinary things with ordinary people. You may be too big for God to use but you’ll never be too small for God to use!
Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth in Me shall never thirst” John 6:35. Here is the message in the miracle. Jesus. You should seek nothing more, you should settle for nothing less.
Look for the miracles today that Jesus provides to you and through you.
The end of the movie is the best part because it’s simple. 1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
