Miracles & Margherita Omelette

Acts 9:15-16 (erv)

But the Lord Jesus said to Ananias, “Go! I have chosen Saul for an important work. I want him to tell other nations, their rulers, and the people of Israel about me. I will show him all that he must suffer for me.”

Read

If you’re not familiar with this story, a man named Saul, who was not a Christian, met Jesus while he was traveling. Not only was he not a Christian, he was actually on his way to stand against the name of Jesus and His disciples.

Jesus instructed Saul to continue on to the city, and he would be told what to do. But He also made Saul blind. He couldn’t see a thing. Can you imagine what Saul must have been thinking in that moment? Let’s try to take ourselves there as we look at this passage.

Saul doesn’t believe in Jesus, and he’s working against Him. He has a strange interaction completely out of the blue, and as a result, he becomes blind. As someone who’s struggled with her faith tremendously over the course of my lifetime, I imagine my mind would go straight to anger. I would probably be thinking something like, “This person is evil! He made me blind! Why do all of these people call Him good and worship Him?!” Or, I might think something like “He is real and He is punishing me for my actions!” leading to the belief that God is a harsh dictator. Either way, I’m not sure anything good would have come out of that moment. I’m willing to bet Saul felt the same way.

But days later, God sends Ananias to perform a miracle; he gives Saul back his sight. And Ananias sees the goodness that so many other believers celebrate. He learns of God’s provision, of His grace, and His plans. He sees that God doesn’t punish, he provides.

More believers and non-believers alike, sometimes it takes a miracle to be reminded of God’s power. The Bible is filled with narrations of the miracles performed that deepened the faith of Christians, and changed the hearts of those who witnessed them.

Maybe you’re like me; totally up for a miracle! But what’s often lost is the catalyst for that miracle. We rarely look at a situation that’s already good, then becomes better, as a miracle. Think about it; the 6-figure earner gets a promotion. The straight-A, always buried in the books student gets into Harvard. The already famous actress wins an Oscar for her great performance. Do you consider any of those things miracles? I certainly don’t; I see them as a great combination of hard-work, dedication, and some good luck.

But the MRI that shows no traces of cancer? The marriage that was on the brink of divorce is now thriving? The blind man that can now see? Miracles. Sometimes, it takes something drastic to recognize our need for God, and all that He does in our lives. In reality, God is just as present in the lives of the ones mentioned above that are experiencing success and great things. But He’s harder to see, isn’t He? Most will make the mistake of seeing the worldly accomplishments and crediting their hard work.

Sometimes, when God needs us to see Him, to hear Him, to recognize Him, to change our hearts and thoughts toward Him, a miracle is necessary. Maybe you’re walking in the “before-a-miracle” phase; struggling, hurting, and questioning. God doesn’t promise us how He’ll perform the miracle (and I want to caution you in regards to setting expectations – see this devo for more on this) but His Word shows us that we can trust He’ll perform one. It may look different than we imagined, but the outcome will be wonderful, because the One who’s in charge has an incredible plan to win over your heart, and the hearts of those around you.

Write

Are there any areas of your life that are causing you pain or strife? Write about them today in a letter to Jesus, sharing all of your hurt and concern with Him.

Pray

Both the Hebrew and Greek words for miracle mean sign. Ask the Lord to show you a sign that He sees you and is with you in whatever season you’re in.
