Life in this fast paced and technologically advanced generation is completely different to life in the days of Moses, Jesus, Paul and even that of our grandparents.
Mankind has made so many advancements in every area of life. What with nano bots being injected into the blood stream to cure diseases, food production is secure in the form of GMO products (whose safety is questionable). Soon cars and aeroplanes will be self operated. We are right now on the brink of another revolution in the form of AI (Artificial Intelligence).
With all these feats, it becomes easy to sit God on the bench.
In fact, perhaps we can even be tempted to think God doesn’t need to work miracles anymore. But, on the contrary: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
No matter how “grown up” and independent we may think we are, God still sees us as His children. He, as a loving father, wants to be involved in our lives. He is still the same God Abraham, Isaac and Jacob worshipped. He is the same God our forefathers served.
And He still works miracles today.
Let me briefly outline five ways God still works miracles today. I hope your faith will be ignited to believe and walk in miracles today.
Salvation is by far the greatest of all miracles. I say this for many reasons but I’ll give you 3.
- Man cannot replicate this miracle.
- God Himself took human form to save us from self-destructing.
- It is the only way to enter heaven.
Salvation, or the born again experience, may look like a simple experience but it is a profound miracle that has eternal ramifications and heavenly benefits.
Imagine the vilest of human beings being transformed into a loving child of God. Now that’s a great miracle.
Yes, God still heals today. Medical science is tremendously advanced but it’s still limited. Let’s face it, man is not God, and as such all we do is not perfect.
We still need divine intervention in many medical mysteries.
I remember him clearly, well his tears anyway. He was sitting at his gate sobbing pitifully. His young daughter of 3 was trying her best to console him. I didn’t know him but I felt compelled to go and pray with him. Upon enquiring about the cause of his sorrow, He revealed he had just been diagnosed with a terminal disease. His sobs, he told me, were not for himself but for the very girl who was wiping away his tears. He didn’t want to leave her fatherless.
That was 13 odd years ago and he is still alive and well.
God still works miracles today. Whether the healing you need is physical, emotional or spiritual; God still heals today.
We all go through it at one point or another in life. A time when we desperately need something that is beyond our reach.
As the good Shepherd He is, God miraculously steps in and provides.
No one can convince me otherwise because I have seen it multiple times. I remember a time I didn’t have money to pay my utilities. On the due date, someone gave me the exact amount I needed. No, I hadn’t asked. They didn’t even know what I was going through. If that is not a miracle, what is?
The miracle of provision is as real today as it was in the days of Elijah. It didn’t end with Jesus multiplying bread and fish either.
4. Connecting The Dots Of Life
I love stories of how people first met (especially married couples) or how they got to be where they are. Why? I always see a miracle in the journey. I always see the hand of God.
Let me give you a short example. One of my friends met her husband in church. Where’s the miracle in that you say? Hang on, I’m getting there.
My friend had just come home to Botswana from Canada on a school break. It was Sunday and she was running late for church. Her church being a bit of a distance away, she decided to fellowship at a nearby church. Unbeknownst to her, there was a visiting preacher from another country that day.
To cut the long story short, twenty years later she is married to that visiting preacher and they have a wonderful family. She didn’t know why she was running late but God used that to connect the dots of her life. So many times things happen in life that we do not understand but through it all, God will be working behind the scenes for our benefit.
Don’t take your marriage, job or business for granted. If one element of the journey had been out of sync by a minute you wouldn’t be where you are today.
“But my life is a mess, where is the miracle in that?” Good point. God specialises in turning messes into messages. Trust Him to bring you out and lift you up.
The journey of life is one long miracle.
There are two words you should cut out of your vocabulary; serendipity and coincidence.
God still works miracles today and your life is proof of it.
5. Angelic Visitations
“Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.” (Hebrews 13:2)
Believe it or not, angels are still on assignment. No, I don’t mean your angelic daughter and definitely not Cupid. As the above scripture says, some (I would like to believe many if not all) have encountered angels without knowing it!
You may not see the wings, armour or gigantic form, but angels do come to our rescue when needed. Sometimes we don’t even see them doing so as in the case of Balaam (Numbers 22:21-35).
I believe God has two kinds of angels; heavenly ones and earthly ones. Yes, I mean human beings who allow themselves to be God’s messengers here on earth.
Be the angel someone is praying to God for. Though God has a massive angelic host with power beyond our comprehension, I believe He takes more pleasure in using us as the miracle someone desperately needs.
Be the answer to someone’s prayer. Be one of the ways God still works miracles today.
There you have it. Five ways God still works miracles today. If you have benched God, putting Him on the sidelines of your life, it’s time to put Him back in the game.
