Miracles: Do They Still Happen?


Our house was abuzz with excitement when the caterpillars we ordered began to emerge from their chrysallises as beautiful butterflies (click here to order your own!). Hannah, 4, was especially amazed. "Mama, it's a miracle!" She exclaimed. I opened my mouth to correct her with something like, "Not really, honey, it happens all the time..." but I stopped myself, and I'm glad I did.

By definition, a miracle is "an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God." Just because God happens to be in the miracle making business, like keeping planets in orbit and bringing nearly 500,000 babies into the world each day (answers.com), does that make any of these events less miraculous? If we're not careful, though, we can get so used to seeing miracles happen firsthand that they become commonplace. Sometimes we even forget about Who really made them happen.

So let's take our cues from the children God wisely placed in our lives. This spring, marvel at the way a flower bursts forth from the ground. Gaze at the ants and wonder how such tiny creatures accomplish so much (Prov 30:25). When you see the stars twinkling tonight, smile and reach out to touch them. In doing so, their Creator might just touch you instead. And remember, whether we realize it or not, miracles are happening around us every day.

Question: What miracles have you noticed lately?





"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: 
also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man 
can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."
Ecclesiastes 3:11
