Today’s Bible Verse
5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 6 So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” 7 Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.Hebrews 13:5-8 (NKJV)
Positioned for Miracle Living – Part One
The devil says that the day of miracles is over. The Bible says that there never was a day of miracles, but there is a God of Miracles. And this God of Miracles is, “the same yesterday, today, and forever,” (Heb. 13:8). Our God doesn’t change. If He did miracles in the past, and He did, then He’ll do miracles today, and He will continue to do miracles tomorrow. Miracles are who He is; it’s within His nature and character to perform them. The date on the calendar, the time on a clock, the alignment of the stars, or the report of a doctor will not and cannot change who God is.
Christianity is at its heart miraculous, for it’s an encounter with the Living God. Everything God has done has been miraculous in nature. Creation, God speaking the universe into existence, was nothing but miraculous. The birthing of a nation through Abraham and Sarah was nothing but miraculous. Israel’s deliverance from Egypt and the crossing through the Red Sea was nothing but miraculous. Christ being born of a virgin was nothing but miraculous. And the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus was nothing but miraculous. There’s no such thing as Christianity without miracles.
