Miracles: God, The Coordinator Of Incidences

3rd October

You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate You awesome power among the nations.”

Psalm 77:14

We worship the God of miracles. God is alive and is as active today as He was in the Old Testament and even before the world began. His wonders or miracles, are evidence of His existence; And because He exists and is actively at work in our world, we can put our trust in Him with our lives and problems too. Many brush off God’s miracles as co-incidences or chance, but as Andrew Ollerton put it in the ‘Why Believe’ series, miracles are not chance or co-incidences at all. “You can put that (miracles) down to co-incidences, but the funny thing is, the more we pray, the more ‘incidences’ happen.”1 He claims that things don’t just happen but are orchestrated by God, as if to say, God, is the coordinator of incidences.

Just as the Psalmist beautiful reminds his readers, so we too need reminding of how great, how big and how miraculous our God is. When we are going through tough times, when there is un-certainty about the future, when we don’t know how we are going to get out of the situation we are in, lets join with the Psalmist and declare, “You are the God of great wonders”. Let us have the attitude that says ‘my problems may be big but ‘i re-call all You have done, O Lord; I remember all Your wonderful deeds of long ago.’ I remember that You are the God of miracles, and You orchestrate all things to work together for the good of all who are called to You….!
