Looking for Miracles and Finding God’s Promise

The other day, I prayed for a miracle as I felt within myself a sense of desperation and I wanted confirmation God cared about my plight. By end of the day, nothing had happened and nothing had changed.

Despair was overwhelming me and I wrestled with God. He reminded me He had sent a verse. I argued that I did not view a verse of Scripture the same as a miracle but I remembered the verse and reviewed it in my mind. Suddenly, it occurred to me, this was a miracle of the greatest magnitude and I repented of my rebellion and rejoiced in the certainty of His care for me.

The verse impressed me earlier that day because it spoke to the keeping power of God. He is able to keep those who are His from falling away. The verse also told me before the creation of the world, He chose those who are His and wrote their names in the Book of Life. So, if God chose those who are His before He created the world and if He keeps them from falling away, then we can know that nothing can happen without His knowing and outside His control.

Yes, this is a miracle, indeed. If relief never comes from the tangible problems we face down here, we still can know God has His plan and He will bring His people through – to the end. We can leave our burden with Him, even if it seems the miracles never come.

“and all who dwell on earth will worship [the Beast], everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.” [Rev 13:8 ESV].
