Just a little miracle

“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind.  Is anything too hard for me?”  Jeremiah 32:27

A young man had been working on an important project costing hundreds of millions of dollars.  He had a critical deadline for completing a key task that absolutely could not be missed.  Unfortunately, he came down with the flu with all the classic symptoms.  He awoke one morning feeling worse than ever with nausea, muscle ache, congestion, headache, and a raging temperature that alternated between sweats and chills.  Since he worked in a private office and away from others, he decided to go in.  However, he knew that his illness would make productive work hugely challenging.  

He bid his wife good-bye for the day and climbed into their VW Beetle to drive to work.  As his normal custom, he prayed as he headed out to his office.  On this day, he took the unusual step of praying for his own healing.  God knew all the details.  As he drove up a highway to reach the interstate, he asked for complete healing when on the entrance ramp, and also to remain well thereafter.  

As the bug circled the ramp a modern-day miracle occurred.  Every flu symptom completely left him.  By the time the tires touched the interstate, he felt perfectly fine.  He went from flu to no flu in an instant.  

He reached his office about ten minutes later and had a great day–highly productive– and he met the mandatory deadline.  He remained well with no sickness.  He was healed.   

I know this story is true because I was the young man.  This miracle isn’t the only one in my life.  In fact, it’s a simple one just to show a baby step in what is possible.  I know and have witnessed several instances that have occurred with family and friends.  

Do you believe in miracles?  If not, open your mind to the possibility.  When it happens for you, it’ll deepen your faith in remarkable ways.  

Prayer:  God, thank you for being the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  We welcome your presence in our lives through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Help our faith to believe in the miraculous.  Amen
