While attending a mandatory military class on resiliency the teacher, a psychologist, stated that miracles do not exist. Immediately, the warning alarms went off in my conscience. This is a false statement, miracles do exist, and a class on resiliency needs to give people hope that miracles do and can happen. You can overcome any situation you are facing because God still performs miracles!
Dr. Tim Storey, an author and internationally renowned speaker, has studied miracles extensively and has a School of Miracles where he teaches people about miracles and how to see them occur in your everyday life. Dr. Storey defines miracles as “a super-intervention of God (School of Ministry 1 Audio: His Nature is Miracles).” Through His personal experience and study, he has found that an expectation of miracles breeds’ miracles in your life and they become part of your lifestyle.
A Psalmist, in the Bible, was facing trouble and was depressed. However, he knew that he served a God of miracles and chose to declare this fact, thus increasing his resiliency. He declared, “I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples (Psalm 77:11-14, NIV).”
God is a great God who can put his ‘super’ on your natural situation and create a supernatural miracle! Whatever you may be facing, know that no mental, physical, relational, or financial obstacle is to big for God to perform a miracle on your behalf. Expectation is the breeding ground for miracles, talk about miracles, think about miracles and experience a lifestyle of miracles that you were intended to live!
