Whenever God is in the details, to the human mind things just don’t add up. God uses ordinary things to create extraordinary feats. In each of the following Scriptures below, obedience and the exercise of faith was required before each separate miracle occurred.
At the wedding in Cana, Jesus instructed the servants to go and fill six empty vessels with water, in obedience they went. On the way back the water changed to the fine wine, befitting for a king; (John 2:9-10).
In John 9:6, a blind man desired his sight, Jesus made a mixture using dirt and saliva, He applied it on the man’s eye lids, and immediately his sight was restored.
On another occasion, a deaf and mute man received a double miracle because he believed. Jesus placed his fingers in his ears, and then spit and touched the man’s tongue; both ears were opened, and the man’s tongue was loosed; (Mark 7:33).
Last but not least, in the parable of sowing and reaping, it’s possible to sow a seed and reap a harvest, some 30, 60, 100 times the size of the seed that was sown; (Matt. 13:8). The miracle happens when you believe that you can receive the blessings that God has in store for you.
“Whatever you have in your hand, however small or insignificant it may seem, if you give it to God, He will use it mightily.”
In the parable of the 2 small fish and 5 small loaves of bread, a lad’s lunch, 5,000 people were fed; (Matt. 14:13-21). Little is much when God is in the details! Give God what your offering, whatever you have, your gifts, your talents, your sacrifice, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we can ask or think. Christians should expect God to meet their needs because that’s a promise that He made. “If you can believe, mustard size faith can move a mountain” ; (Matt. 17:20).
In a fraction the denominator is below the line and functions as the divisor of the numerator. Who’s the common denominator when miracles occur?
“God is in every detail!”
Have an exuberant weekend, friends!
