Another day; another miracle

Multitudes of miracles have gone unnoticed in your life. Ask Jesus to tell you about some of the miracles you’ve overlooked. I continually see Jesus do things that drastically defy the odds of probability! When things that overwhelmingly defy probability begin to consistently happen around you, you’ve begun to live in the realm of miracles.

Rationalism learns to think. Miracle-ism learns to wonder. Both are valuable
gifts from God. To go beyond the mere belief that miracles can happen and learn to depend on them in your life, is to live on a supernatural level.

Miracles in the natural world are amazing. Miracles of the heart are life transforming! Another day; another miracle. Don’t miss it! Awe begins with the recognition of a miracle!

Trying to rush a miracle usually turns into a do it yourself project. However, if you begin to daily follow and obey Jesus’ voice, you’ll find yourself surrounded by miracles.

Miracles often begin with a prompting inside the heart, but fail to manifest because we ignore the prompting. Trust Jesus enough to obey Him when He prompts you to step out into the unfamiliar, the unknown, and the uncomfortable. Courageously obeying the voice of Jesus sets the stage for miracles.

Too much self-confidence can stop miracles. The more we trust our ability, the less we trust Jesus.

Why are there so many miracles in the Bible? Because people dared to notice them and to write them down. People who don’t think they need a miracle will be oblivious to miracles. Miracle moments are easy to miss.

The belief that miracles don’t happen, keeps many people busy explaining miracles away. Some people would rather remain nestled in their comfort zone, than to see or acknowledge a miracle. Step out of your zone-of-perceived-control and watch God work. Dare to trust God so much that you stop trusting in yourself.

There is no methodology for manufacturing miracles. They’re beyond human making. Miracles happen to everybody; but many people fail to notice them. “Tiny miracle” is an oxymoron.

If things are feeling out of control, you can either panic and desperately try to fix things; or you can look to God for a miracle. If you want to see miracles; lay down your pride, acknowledge your brokenness, and open your eyes!

When we surrender control to God, He steps in and begins to manifest His presence. Jesus will direct you very specifically if you will listen to and obey Him.

Self-belief and trusting in Jesus don’t mix. “He must increase but I must decrease.”
(John 3:30)

Life becomes a series of wonders when you begin to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit. The more we organize & control things, the less opportunity God has to work miracles. If you’re depending on a program, a message, or a man; you may never realize that you need God’s miracles.

The miracle wasn’t Jesus walking on water. Most people can walk. The miracle was that Jesus didn’t sink.

Some people even try to control miracles. If they don’t happen just the way they want them to, they work to explain them away.

Everyday people need to testify about the miracle’s God’s done in their lives. Church is a good place to do that! Let Christians meet to all listen to and obey Jesus, and to watch Him do miracles among them.

A well planned church service doesn’t need God’s presence. It will run without Him.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
