“Do you believe in Miracles?” I’ll never forget hearing those words during the 1980 Olympics when the U.S. Olympic hockey team won a dramatic victory over the “invincible” Russian squad. Off course the victory was made even more popular when it was put on the big screen in the movie, “Miracle.”
I still get goose bumps when I see the movie. The excitement and the adrenaline kicks in during the final couple of minutes of the game.
As exciting as that is it pails in comparison to seeing God perform miracles. I mentioned earlier about a young lady named Caylin that was in ICU and having a tough time. Well, she still has a long way to go, but Praise the Lord for the miracle that He has done in beginning to restore her. She is laughing now and talking and is at a rehabilitation hospital where they are making her get dressed herself and brush her own teeth.
This is truly a modern-day miracle. Why? For a number of reasons, but the one that sticks out to me the most is as I watched Caylin while she laid in a hospital bed hooked up to every machine imaginable and doctors came in and out monitoring her and having no idea what to do, but wait. Then it happened. She began to get better. No medicines. No surgeries. Just the Hand of the Almighty God. The One who holds the Key to life. The Savior and Lord of all. The God of mercy and grace. The God who sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to come into this world to live a perfect, sinless life, so that He could die on a cross to forgive ALL OF US for our sins.
“Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy Name.” Psalm 103:1
