6/21/17 When Miracles are Needed

images-1            Sometimes we find ourselves in need of a miracle. It’s only natural to lean toward worry when faced with difficulties that are far beyond our ability to handle. We cry and hunt for answers. We do everything we can possibly do in our own power. Then, when we reach the end of that proverbial rope, we finally decide to pray. It’s almost as if we think we’ll be bothering God with our problems.

Acts 5:12-25 relates an incident that happened in the early days of the new Church. The apostles were performing signs, preaching, and teaching in the name of Jesus, and “believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women.” These actions angered the religious leaders who decided to throw the apostles in prison. “But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, ‘Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.’” Well, in the morning, when the religious leaders gathered to deal with the apostles, they weren’t in the prison. Someone told them, “Look, the men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people!”

Reading this account reminded me that when we are about God’s business, He will do theimages-1 miraculous for us. As Luke relates this incident, he does not say that the apostles even prayed about being released. God just handled the situation for them.

I am in need of a few miracles today as I’m sure you probably are as well. Let’s decide to just keep doing what God has set out for us to do and watch God do what only He can do for us.
