Have you ever seen a miracle?

Maybe you have known someone who has been healed of a serious illness. Maybe you have had God’s miraculous deliverance from an accident. Maybe you have watched a miracle unfold right in front of you.

Early in my pastoral ministry, I was involved in an anointing service for someone who was facing a serious surgery. The day after the anointing, the doctor who was to perform the surgery was meeting with the patient. Upon review of the conditions that led to the need for the surgery, it determined that she no longer had those conditions. The surgery was canceled.

Of course, it doesn’t always happen in that manner.

Some of you may be saying “I have never experienced a miracle,” or “I haven’t met someone else who has experienced a miracle.” I would respectfully ask you to do a simple thing you may have already done before.

Look in the mirror.

That’s right. Look in the mirror. You are a walking miracle. Albert Einstein said,

There are two ways to live your life. One is as if nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.

When you look in a mirror just know that there are 100 million neurons that conduct close to ten billion calculations every second. There are thirty-seven sextillion chemical reactions happening at any given second. You have six quarts of blood traveling through sixty thousand miles of veins, arteries, and capillaries. Those are just a few of the amazing things happening in your body each and every day.

You are a walking miracle.

The Bible says in Psalms 139:14 that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. As you walk through life, pause and thank God for the walking miracle He made you to be. Thank and praise Him for the miracle of life and live your life as a walking miracle.
