There are miracles happening all around us every day, some small and some huge. Just consider this amazing thing we call life. The complexity of a Swiss watch that we take for granted. The problem is that we become complacent about these things and forget where these miracles comes from. We were after all, made in His image, Genesis 1:27. If you will just “Keep Your Eyes Open, You Will See Miracles Galore”.
Jesus performs his first miracle in John 2:1-11 when He turns the water into wine. The speed that this process happened is what made it unusual. We think for something to be a miracle it has to be outside the natural order of things. In the book Miracles by C.S. Lewis it says that every miracle Jesus preformed was in sync with God’s natural order, it was just quicker. The problem with miracles is that we expect them to be instantaneous. God has given us this wonderful world full of miracles, we just need to keep our eyes open and we will see miracles galore .
An eight year old boy who rescued two friends from a coal mine was being interviewed by Johnny Carson. It was apparent that the young man was a Christian. Carson asked the boy what he was learning in Sunday School. He said last week our lesson was about when Jesus went to a wedding and turned water into wine. This got a laugh from the audience. Then Johnny asked him what he learned from the lesson. The boy squirmed for a while and then with a smile answered, “If you’re going to have a wedding, make sure you invite Jesus!” We need to invite Jesus into every part of our lives.
Miracles are evidence of God’s presence. We just need to take the blinders off and be more observant.
