What is a miracle? It's the LORD, the Almighty, doing for us what we could never do for ourselves.
The greatest miracle of all, of course, is the Resurrection, the fact that He went to that cruel Roman cross and died for our sins, and then rose again, delivering us once for all from the eternal penalty of our sin, all as a free gift, one that we don't deserve, one that we could never earn.
But every day since has been filled with additional miracles.
America itself - the fact that we were born and live in the land of the free, where there is no king but Jesus - is a miracle, come to think of it.
Miracles are occurring all around us, every day. Even in the midst of trials and encroaching darkness in the world, so much good, good that we could never bring about by our own power, continues to take place.
Take notice, then praise Him and thank Him for all that He is doing for us, no matter how large or small.
And then speak and act as if the Gospel, the Good News, really is. Rejoice! Allow Him to use you to be a miracle in others' lives, especially on behalf of the weak and the helpless, doing for them what they cannot do for themselves.
God's heart is to save, to give, to help, to heal. Be an instrument of mercy and love in the nail-scarred Hand of the God of Miracles.
