God's Message For You Today, March 27, 2008

MiRACLES
 
"You Israelites, why are you amazed at this… as if we made him walk by our own power or piety?" – Acts 3:12
 
I'm amazed whenever I experience small miracles. Like the time when I got seven pairs of shoes from my uncle right after my mom commented how worn out mine were. Or the time when I woke up at 3 a.m. and was led to pray for my sister. Unknown to me, she was giving birth then and was in a life-and-eath situation. (She survived that ordeal.) There was also a time when somebody gave me a car a week after I had prayed for one.
        But as the years passed, I tended to take for granted the wondrous things that the Lord was doing in my life. Another tendency was to live for the miracles rather than to make myself available to do His will.
        American preacher Greg Laurie writes, "The Book of Acts is a record of what Jesus Christ did in the lives of His people over a 30-year span. This is important to realize because...it sounds like the early believers had a miracle happening every few minutes."
        True, they saw miracles, but they weren't a constant experience. Our role is to follow Christ in all circumstances, making ourselves available to be used by Him — in a typical "ordinary" day or in a glorious, "miraculous" moment. Ariel Driz
 
REFLECTION:
Am I available to be used by the Lord in all types of circumstances?
 
Lord Jesus, I pray for openness to be used by You for Your kingdom here on earth. Amen.
