Our ancestors in Egypt were not impressed by the Lord’s miraculous deeds. They soon forgot his many acts of kindness to them. Instead, they rebelled against him at the Red Sea. Even so, he saved them—to defend the honor of his name and to demonstrate his mighty power. Psalm 106.7-8
My Dad loves to share Jesus with others and this particular day he was having a conversation with a disillusioned young man. This troubled man said he couldn’t be believe in the Bible because he had never seen a miracle and he felt it was all a bit unrealistic. My Dad replied, “You’ve never seen a miracle?! I’ve seen a lot of miracles in my life!” And for the next two hours shared with this man all the miracles he had seen and experienced in his life.
As I was listening to my father share this story, I wondered . . .

How easy it is then when we get in difficult places, like the Israelites were – back up against the wall (the Red Sea), to begin to question God. His power? His greatness? His goodness?
We choose to remember. We make note. We write down and hold close our God-sightings.
And when the times of disillusionment come, when we feel God has backed us into a corner, left us hanging out to dry, we remember the treasure trove of God-miracles, we bring them out into the light and cling to their truth instead of what we feel.
Remember God’s outrageous grace. His priceless gift. His unending love. His forever promises.
Let’s start by remembering the greatest miracle of all . . .
