Are you believing God right now for something huge to happen in your life? Have you been seeking Him, asking, and even pleading with him for certain prayers to be answered?
Maybe you’re praying for someone in your family to be cured from cancer, or to see a friend saved or delivered from her current circumstances. Maybe you need a huge financial miracle or are seeking God to save your marriage. Whatever it is, whatever that “Maxi Miracle” is that you’ve been seeking Him for, I just want you to know that He hears you. He hears your cries. He knows your thoughts. He sees you where you are and has kept track of every tear that has fallen. Those sleepless nights filled with worry are not something He ignores.
Now, you may be thinking …
“Well, if He is so good at knowing how much pain I’m in, and He hears my every prayer … why hasn’t he fixed it? Why am I still in this mess? My heart is hurting, and He has the remedy. Why hasn’t he stepped in to stop my pain?”
I would say those are very valid questions. I asked them myself many times. I know this probably isn’t the answer you’re looking for, but I’d say the way to make it through the trial and the season of pain is to ask different questions.
What are You teaching me today?
How are my circumstances molding me into the person You’ve designed me to be?
What am I NOT seeing?
I am not trying to minimize the trials and tribulations we experience. They are painful. That is a fact. However, sometimes the pain blinds us to the miracles that are happening EVERY DAY!
Oftentimes, we are so busy waiting for our MAXI MIRACLES that we completely ignore the MINI MIRACLES that surround us.
Believe me, God wants the best for you. However, sometimes His “best” requires us to go through the fire. It’s preparation. I know it isn’t pleasant. I know it isn’t all roses. I’ve gone through many days where I thought God had put the mute button on my prayer requests and forgot I existed.
The thing is, He never forgets you exist.
You’re on His mind ALL the time!
So, today, as you are seeking God for your Maxi Miracles, don’t forget to look around you for all of the Mini Miracles He is giving you. Don’t be blinded by your own prayers. Don’t allow your painful circumstances to rob you of the joy each day can bring, even when your deepest desires are still just that.
He made today just for you. He designed this day so that you could experience it with Him, step by step. Take His hand and walk with Him today. He knows your pain and sees your circumstances. He’s working them out as you walk with Him.
Allow Him to do what He does best. He knows your end from your beginning, and even when it doesn’t make ANY kind of sense, remember that it’s all working for your good, and your future is magnificent.
Your TODAY is your miracle.
Whether you consider it to be Maxi or Mini … don’t miss it!
