Happy New Year’s
I love New Year’s Day.
It’s my favourite day of the whole year. It’s new, fresh and full of promise – miracles.
“Miracles are supernatural events that supersedes natural laws”.
Do you need a few of these this year?
Last week I drove by a familiar intersection and a memory came flooding back. Let me tell you about a miracle …
My young son and I had made the hour drive to a big box store. I finished my shopping, we hopped in the car and drove through the subdivision weaving our way back to the main road. I noticed the light was red at the intersection; I pulled up, put on my signal and waited for the green to proceed.
What happened next was an event that superseded natural laws.
The light turned green and I didn’t move. I sat there like a stone. I remember thinking, “What am I doing? The light is green”. However, within a split second, a car sped through the red light like a bullet.
Had I simply moved forward when the light turned green, I would have been hit. Considering the speed the other car was going, I doubt my son and I would have survived the impact; leaving behind my husband and our other four children.
As I made a slow left, I was so shaken, I couldn’t drive. I pulled off to the side of the road. “Dear Jesus, you just saved my life, our lives. You made me stop on a green and kept me there until the car passed. Thank you, Jesus”.
Maybe this new year you are looking for a miracle.
You need one.
A supernatural event that supersedes natural laws.
Allow me to encourage you today; if a personal God watches when lights turn green and keeps you stopped because you are in desperate need of a miracle – then dear one, He sees you too – as you are stopped – in desperate need a miracle.
Jesus coming to earth – is a miracle. His death on a cross in the prime of life – is a miracle.
God is full of miracles – we all need them.
It’s a foolish presumption to think we can make God do anything – the clay demanding the potter – but we can trust God in everything and ask with faith believing “for a supernatural event that supersedes natural laws”.
A true, one-of-a-kind miracle …

“Dear Heavenly Father, you are the God of the impossible and you can do anything. I believe you hear me when I pray and I will trust you for miracles this year. Thank you”.
