Looking For a Miracle
"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, 'Your God reigns.'” - Isaiah 52:7
Your team is down by 15 points with 2 minutes left in your championship game. Time is not on your side and morale is running low. Fans in the stands are faithful, but their hope is fading. Only a miracle of momentum would carry you towards a win. In times like these, you are desperate for a miracle. You cling to hope and make every move you can to try to shift the projected trajectory of this scoreboard.
In times of uncertainty, we search for possibility.
In times of hopelessness, we search for a savior.
"People are looking for miracles," my friend said as we discussed the recent path of destruction the pandemic has resulted in. Death, job loss, anxiety, fear, busted future plans...
How are we preparing to be the hands and feet of Jesus at a time like this? How are we looking to be the carrier of miracles for the glory of God? Let's stir one another to be a people marked by Holy Spirit attentiveness, generosity, hope and peace. Your encouragement could be the answer to someone's prayer. Your generous gift could be their miraculous provision. Keep your eyes open, your hands ready and watch God move through you!
- As you pray for those in need, how might God be asking you to be a part someone's answered prayer?
- Ask God to highlight people who are in need of financial, spiritual and emotional provision.
- What needs do you have at this time? Ask God to step into your life and partner with you as listen for His voice and direction.

God, thank you for being the provider of all things. You are a miracle-working God who cares deeply for each of your children. Make your light known in dark places and show me how I might link arms with you in bringing the light of Christ.
