Monday Mercies

Happy Monday!! We’re back again and continuing to talk about miracles!

Faith requires faith. If we do not believe that God can move mountains and that God can perform miracles, then we will not see them! So first, we need to surrender to Him in order to see His work.

When we think of “miracles,” we think of Hollywood magic. It’s part of just growing up with movies and TV shows. But God’s miracles work a little differently than that. Think about when God has provided miracles in the Bible. Let’s look at Acts, Chapter 3:

One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

When God healed a paralyzed man through Peter, there were no fireworks – He simply told the man to stand up and walk! The paralyzed man was just asking for some money, but Peter healed his paralysis!! Y’all, HE MADE A MAN WALK WHO COULD NOT EVEN STAND. That’s a miracle!! He does the same thing through Peter when Peter brought a dead woman back to life! He simply told the woman to get up.

I think about how this applies to my life. Often, I’m asking God for specific things that I think are going to help me get ahead of my issues that I’m dealing with. But when I look around, God is already providing me with miracles that I didn’t even know that I needed. Often, I’m so blind to what I think I need, I’m not listening to God to know what I actually need.

Where is God providing miracles for you in your life?

Watch the full sermon from this weekend below. Pastor Mike always says it better than I can summarize.
