How God Works Miracles


I'm nothing special.

No doubt you feel the same way about yourself.

My life is very ordinary. I don't have impressive credits, extraordinary abilities or even a job title. What I do have is a willing spirit, a heart that wants to make God smile.

God can use small ingredients to make big miracles happen: fabric and thread to lift hope in the sick, five loaves and two fish to feed five thousand hungry people, and faith the size of a mustard seed to move a mountain. Shouldn’t we give all that we have to God just to see what He might do with it?

I don't have to be the smartest, the most eloquent, strong, talented or insightful. A willing spirit is enough. God multiplies my meager efforts, molding them into something useful and beautiful.

God works miracles with a willing spirit.

Will you be willing? Want to see a miracle?

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Psalm 51:10-12
