I love reading news articles on my phone. This story captured my attention earlier today and I’m so glad I gave it a read.
Spend 2 minutes – you won’t regret it.
Here’s the part that gave me an ah-ha moment:
Our miracle didn’t fix everything.
Maybe you’re asking God for a miraculous intervention today. He may very well provide it — a baby, a spouse, a job, a financial breakthrough or healing. Until we get that miracle, it’s easy to think, “If I just get this one thing I’m asking for, I’ll know for sure that God is good.”
Miracles do powerfully reveal God’s goodness, but then we have to keep on living everyday life, which is often full of disappointment and grief.
We’re not alone in that though. “Even though Jesus was God’s Son, He learned obedience from the things He suffered” (Hebrews 5:8). If Jesus, the miracle maker, didn’t get a pass on suffering, we won’t either.
Yes, and amen.
