One Miracle

“Boy, I could really use a miracle right now!”

He said.

I was having breakfast at a local restaurant when I overheard two men talking.

I thought about how many times I’ve said that.

It then lead me to this question:

“What if God gave me one miracle?”

Not one that I asked for, but one that was given to me to do what I wanted.

One miracle that could change the world.

One miracle that could save lives.

One miracle that could bring joy into the lives of people all around me.

One miracle that could comfort the sick, heal a broken heart, empower others to rise above their own challenges.

One miracle that could…go ahead name it.

What if you woke up one day and this revelation came to you that you held the power of using one miracle to impact the world in such a unique way as to leave a lasting and forever impression?

Think about the weight of that idea. Think about what it would be like to know that you held that power and you had to decide what you were going to do with it.

Think about what it would be like if others knew you had that miracle at hand. Would you feel a sense of urgency to do something with it or would you just sit by and wait until the opportunities faded or your time ran out?

What about your obligation to God?

Above all else, beyond what others might expect, don’t you think that if God gave you that miracle that you would make it a priority in your life to use it in such a way as to please Him?

Well, my friend, this isn’t some foolish idea.

This isn’t some ethical question in a college course. It is indeed reality.

YOU are that miracle created, born with great expectations and given unto the world as the miracle of life. You are capable of all those things and obligated by faith to use this miracle.

Wake up to this reality. Step up to the challenge.

Live up to expectations.

Be the miracle!
