A Miracle for You Today

Of all the great miracles in the deliverance of God's people from Egypt, this has to be the best. First, there were the miracles that God used to prove Moses was His man and deliverance was His plan. A rod turning into a snake and vice-versa, then the leprous hand, etc. Then there were the ten plagues, again made special in that not one of them touched the area of Goshen where the Jews lived.

In the wilderness, Israel witnessed the dry crossing of the Red Sea, the leading by the cloud and pillar of fire, the quails, the manna, and shoes which lasted for 40 years (enough to drive a shoe loving woman crazy!)

But Ps 105 37 presents the best miracle of all, in my book.

“He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.”

Now think about this. On a given Sunday in your church, how many of the folks are
going to be ill? Probably at least 5 to 10%, a few more during cold and flu season.

But imagine, at least 3 million Jews, and not one feeble person among them. Wow!
Maybe I should stop eating catfish and shrimp and mixing meat and dairy like our
Israelite friends!

No, this had nothing to do with diet and everything to do with God's protection.

What does this tell us? Well, the things written in the Old Testament are there for an example to us according to I Cor 10:11. God is able to take care of His own. God is able to take care of you. That doesn't mean sickness won't come to your house, but it surely can't pay a visit without God's permission. Our lives are in His hands to do whatever is
best for us.

As surely as God did the miraculous for the children of Israel so long ago, He is doing great and marvelous things for you every day, you just have to pay attention.

Assignment: Look for God's hand to do the miraculous in your life today and then let others know of His power and might.

One final thought…Why does the Lord do such wonderful things for us? The answer is
in Ps 105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the
