Faith to See Miracles

Matthew 17:20-21

“For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Thought for the Day:  Have faith that miracles will happen

Sometimes, as I read scriptures and readings after I have written a devotional, I delve more deeply into a thought I have for a day. Today was one of those times. I wrote about seeing miracles and that there seems to be a difference in how many miracles we see today in comparison to those seen in the days of Paul. I reflected on my words in the devotional I wrote where I had been seeing miracles in the life of my family and friends. As I looked more closely I realized that we seem to have things turned around and there is a reason we don’t see miracles. We have a mindset that miracles do not happen as much as they did 2000 years ago. We say, “If I could see miracles, I would believe” or “Miracles don’t happen anymore”. Then, the word “FAITH” appeared in my studies and it appeared a lot. The blind man had faith and believed, so he was healed. The father had faith that Jesus could heal his son, so he was healed. Jesus said so many times that it was the person’s faith that healed them.

Do we have faith to recognize the miracles when they happen? Do we have to see the miracles to have faith? I believe the reason I have recognized miracles happening in the lives of my family and friends recently has been because of faith. I believe that miracles happen everyday and that faith will help us see them. In the website I read this morning I read, “The bottom line is that we are not living in an age of faith. And faith is to miracles as cause is to effect.”*

Prayer:   God, thank you for the miracles You bring us everyday. Help us to have the faith to see them, and help us have the faith to know that You will make those miracles happen in our lives. You said it only takes faith the size of a mustard seed. Please give us that faith. Amen.
