The concept of a “Miracle”: God interrupts His Creation in a special way-plagues of locusts, waters parting, people raised from the dead. Stuff only God can do He does, so that the people of His Creation know that He is there, and that they should Glorify Him.
But God is not a far off God, a distant Zeus tossing lightning bolts down from Mount Oly.
He also reveals His presence in “quiet Miracles”; for example:
1. You exist. That God is loving and patient is proven by the miracle that He didn’t totally destroy humanity back before you were born. I guarantee you that your great grand grand grands going back to the Flood were just as big a stinkers as you are and yet, through His Grace, they survived, and here you are.
2. The world continues to exist. We love our planet, we enjoy God’s Creation, but many ignorant bipeds act as if THEY own it.
God could snap His fingers and make it all go away. He won’t, as He has plans for His Creation which no hammerhead human can possibly frustrate. But the world, the heavens, all of His Creation belongs to Him.
3. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son”
You don’t hear about souls being saved. You won’t find a mention in your local paper that Bobbi Simpson gave her life to Christ last week. It will never be reported on CNN that someone repented and was restored to a right relationship with God.
This is a very quiet miracle, one happening daily as God draws peoples to Himself. May that miracle happen to you.
