“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” (Isaiah 65:24)
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a miracle as “an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs.” A miracle is an event so marvelous that it seems it was sent from above.
Sometimes, we may not realize we are receiving a miracle until we look back later and realize just how events have transpired. “God takes circumstances and adds the power of the miraculous.”
A couple of years ago, I was experiencing a lot of pain in my chest and arms, so the cardiologist sent me for a nuclear heart scan. They found nothing wrong with my heart but advised my family doctor that there was a suspicious lump.
After several mammograms and ultrasounds, a growth was discovered, and surgery was scheduled. Thankfully, they got it all and results were that I would not need chemo or radiation.
Because routine mammograms are not done here in Quebec for someone my age, if the heart scan had not seen a problem, the cancer would probably not have been discovered until it had progressed to something far more serious. Thank the Lord it was small and discovered early.
Through prayer, God gave me peace through the whole process and His assurance that whatever happened, He was in complete control.
“The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion” (Psalm 20:1-2).
It is so wonderful to belong to the great family of God and know that we can depend on their prayers when we are facing situations in our lives. Thank God for my miracle.
I believe in miracles, and I know that the Lord performed one in my life. He was in complete control through the entire process. I give Him the thanks and the glory for what He has done.
