One of the things that distinguishes you from all of the other children on the earth, is Miracles. Definitions of “a miracle” could be “phenomena which appear to violate natural laws but reveal God actively moving,” or “a sense of awe that points to the presence of God at work in power.” Whatever the definition, it is jaw-dropping to either witness a miracle, or be the recipient of one.
Throughout time, God has done miracles. Miracles and power are a part of His kingdom and whatever is touched by His Kingdom, the miraculous is present. I have personally witnessed things that could not be included in any other category except “the miraculous:” People healed of cancer, a witchdoctor completely changed in moments, signs in the sky that spoke clearly, dreams in the night that became reality soon after, unexplained super-experiences, demonic spirits thrust out of a person and peace filling their lives, prophetic revelation being spoken that no one knew about, money appearing at our doorstep or in the mail at the perfect time, and on and on.
As I have often asked others to share testimonies of what God has done in their lives, I have heard remarkable stories of the miraculous at work in various ways, with no two stories the same; and though these testimonies speak of God doing something spectacular, of all of the testimonies that I have heard of and experienced personally, I see a pattern that might be surprising. Most of the miracles and phenomena that violates natural laws for individuals has come through the “touch” or actions of other people! In other words, most miracles are not God working independently, but rather God choosing to work through His dependants – His kids that step out in love and faith and compassion to touch someone else.
Think for a moment about your miracles. How did they happen? My guess is that most of them came through someone who gave, someone who prophesied, someone who prayed for you, someone who said something that altered your world, someone who anonymously gave, someone who, for a moment in time, became Jesus to you.
What this means is that just as Jesus became the miracle for all of humanity by stepping out of heaven and coming near to people, healing them and releasing them from their bondages, we are here to do the same.
“Anyone who claims to be intimate with God ought to live the same kind of life Jesus lived.” 1 John 2:6
When we step out of our “normal” and safe environments and go to the person we see in pain, go to those who are needy for encouragement, pray for the sick or depressed, we become a part of God’s provision for another. God has chosen to do it this way. He loves involving His kids in His fun and He has already filled you up with the miraculous to give away. The reservoir of His Spirit inside of you holds the resources that sets others free (Luke 17:21). God’s is looking for His “dependants” to send a check through – looking for armies of His own children that want to get in on doling out heaven’s riches. Whether we realize it or not, our own life is a miracle and we are a transport vehicle of miracles to others.
