One of the wonders of being a child of God is hearing Him speak intimately in His still, small voice. His unbidden word in my mind is like a fresh breeze on a spring day, like a caress against my cheek.
Recently one morning, as I walked to my kitchen sink, with no thoughts except what needed to be accomplished that day, in my mind I heard, “Sweet Lord Jesus He’s a miracle man.” I knew this was a line from All The Way To Kingdom Come by Rich Mullins. Earlier I had been praying for loved ones who have dire health needs. My prayers for them were BIG requests that only a BIG GOD can perform. Although I had left “our” prayer time, Father God, in His tenderness, broke into my routine to encourage me, to remind me that the One in whose name I had prayed is THE MIRACLE MAN and that my prayers had been heard. While I tackled the mundane, He was attending to the impossible.
Later I grabbed my phone and googled the entire lyrics of the song by Rich Mullins. “…He gave love a face and He gave love a name…Love is a miracle…but the sweet Lord Jesus, he’s a miracle man…now we know what love is ’cause he loved us all the way to kingdom come.”
My husband recently read The Case For Miracles by Lee Strobel and Miracles by Eric Metaxas. He recommended both books which document the existence of miracles in today’s world.
Of all miracles, the greatest miracle is The LOVE OF JESUS, who left the glory of heaven and took on the form of a servant to give His life on a cross to give everlasting life to undeserving me and to all who believe in Him.
Borrowing words from a secular love song, Miracle of Miracles, from Fiddler On The Roof, “…But of all God’s miracles large and small, the most miraculous one of all is the one I thought could never be: God has given you to me.” Thank you, God, for giving Jesus to me and me to Jesus! I am eternally grateful. I am eternally yours.
