Remembering Your Miracles
Psalm 103:2 reads, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits." Our faith is nurtured when we remember all that God has done for us – especially in the realm of the miraculous. We should never forget what God does on our behalf. Most every follower of Jesus has a miracle story. There was a time when life was hard and hopeless. Like the Israelites approaching the Red Sea. Like the disciples right after Jesus’s death on the cross. There seemed to be no solution. The possible outcomes all appeared negative. Their foreboding circumstances overshadowed any hope they might have. But the person refused to give up. He prayed consistently. She believed in a risen Lord. And God broke through the darkness. A miracle happened. Millions of people all over the world share miracles from God. Believers should do whatever is necessary to fan the flames of remembrance by sharing our miracle memories with each other. When we do, we are reminded that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond anything that we could ever hope for or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Nothing, absolutely nothing, is impossible for God (Matthew 19:26). Recall a miracle in your life – a circumstance in which God came through for you. A time when you were in an impossible situation and God showed up. No matter how great or small, write it down. Embed it in your memory bank. Then place your present worry beside your memory of the miracle. The more you remember how God has proven himself faithful, the less power anxiety will have over you. Do you need a miracle today? God wants to give you one. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Just like that, it was done. He did it. Effortlessly. If Genesis 1:1 is true, God can easily suspend his natural laws to do a miracle for you. Always remind yourself: If God came through for you in the past, he can do it again in the future! Because nothing is impossible for God. Don’t be anxious. God’s got this.
