A Tissue Of Miracles
 
Are you needing a Miracle today?
We are not talking about something that man can do.
On the contrary, we are referring to that which is so impossible - something that may even be without precedent or has not been done yet in the earth, the medical field, your nation, work environment, government, denomination, church, family, or personal life.
The Scriptures tell us that He is a God Who does wonders.
Do you believe that?
May this message be the tool that God uses to stir your Faith for your Miracle.
 
Adam Clarke, in his Commentary, is quoted as saying - "Christianity is a tissue of miracles, and every part of the work of grace on the soul is a miracle. Genuine Christian converts may talk of miracles from morning to night, and they shall talk of them, and recommend to others their miracle-working God and Saviour." "He whose eye is attentive to the operation of God's hand will find many of these."
 
Matthew Henry has said in reference to Miracles- "God's wondrous works ought to be the subject of our familiar discourses with our families and friends, and we should talk of them as we sit in the house and as we go by the way, not merely for entertainment, but for the exciting of devotion and the encouraging of our own and others' faith and hope in God."
 
And Barnes' Notes has given this comment - "Memory hath He made for His wonderful works."
 
Psalm 77:14 definitively declares - "Thou art the God that doest wonders..."
Exodus 34:10 adds - "And He said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee."
 
Is this the kind of God that you serve?
Is He the God Who performs supernatural acts of power and goodness which are too wonderful to comprehend - surpassing all ability and power but His own?
In your estimation, does He still do "wondrous works" which are suited to attract attention, awe the mind, inspire faith and confidence, or excite wonder, amazement, and admiration?
 
Perhaps, at this moment in time, you feel as though you have to hang your head down low and regrettably admit that your perception of the Almighty is very limited.
 
Don't fret! For the Lord has beckoned us to pray in Psalm 119:18 for the veil - which prevents us from seeing Him as He truly is - to be taken away from our hearts and eyes - "Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things..." In other words, reveal, make naked, uncover, disclose, give understanding, and pour out Your Grace upon me insomuch that the scales will fall from my eyes so that I may see.
 
God desires that all of His people see Him for Who and What He really is!   
 
What hinders us from seeing God as He is is Sin! A darkened heart or mind will be closed to divine things.
 
Both David and the writer of Psalm 119 prayed for continual instruction and guidance in reference to their duty before God - 
Psalm 71:17 says - "O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works."
Psalm 119:27 says - "Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts: so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works."
 
What many do not realize is that Miracles in people's lives have a strong correlation to their obedience to God. There will be no "wondrous works" unless there is a compliance with God's will, ways, and Word.
 
Once God teaches us of His mighty acts, He expects us to treasure up or retain the lessons which they  taught - to register or keep them on record in our minds.
 
1 Chronicles 16:12 confirms this fact - "Remember His marvellous works that He hath done, His wonders..."
Psalm 111:4 adds - "He hath made His wonderful works to be remembered..."
 
When our minds - in turn - are filled to overflowing with the meditation of His admirable and memorable acts, our mouths cannot help but speak.
 
Several Scriptures convey this thought -
 
Psalm 9:1 says - "I will praise Thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth all Thy marvellous works."
Psalm 26:7 says - "That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Thy wondrous works."
Psalm 71:17 says - "O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works."
Psalm 105:2 says - "Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk ye of all His wondrous works."
Psalm 119:27 says - "Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts: so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works."
Psalm 145:5 says - "I will speak of the glorious honor of Thy majesty, and of Thy wondrous works."
 
God's "wondrous works" become the subject of our praise, writings, or defense of the truth. Our hearts are so full of and affected with His Miracles that we cannot help but recount, narrate, or fill others with the knowledge or lessons we ourselves have gleaned from them.   
 
Indeed, God is a God Who does wonderful things for His people.
Miracles have never ceased.
They are still going on today.
 
It is our obligation to cry out to Him that He would "Open our eyes to behold wondrous things." 
It is crucial that we put away all sin which would blind our hearts, eyes, and understanding to His greatness, strength, and power.
It is imperative that we infuse our minds - not with the nonsensical and frivolous things of this world - but with the remembrance of His glorious acts insomuch that they fill our every conversation and through us - others hear of His awesome power and believe. 
 
God desires that the truths that are imparted to us be handed down to the next generation - "We will not hide them from their children, showing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and His strength, and His wonderful works that He hath done"(Psalm 78:4).  
 
Sad to say - many children know nothing about this "God that doest wonders." They see their parents and grandparents living no differently than the heathen. So why should they ever believe that there is such a God of Miracles?!?   
 
It is our obligation to "show to the generation to come" God's "strength" and "wonderful works." What better way to demonstrate this power than in a life that is holy, pure, and "unspotted from the world"(James 1:27)
 
Yes, God is Who He says He is - "...the God that doest wonders..."
 
Do you need a Miracle today? Are you having problems believing?
 
Then cry out to God to "Open Thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things..." He will answer your cry.
Be sure to also repent of any and all sin which would blind you from seeing His real character. 
Then fill your heart and mind with His mighty Word which speaks of His awe-inspiring and mind-boggling  acts.
Study and concentrate on this subject until you can no longer keep silent about it.
 
When this happens, you will definitely have a face-to-face encounter with the God of the Miraculous.
That which you thought was totally impossible will become possible.
The Lord Jesus will be glorified not only in your praises but in the praises of your children and grandchildren.
 
It will happen.
You can count on it!
 
May God Bless His Word.
