(Ecclesiastical Terms) an event that is contrary to the established laws of nature and attributed to a supernatural cause
i love thinking about miracles. each of them is mind blowing even though we often blow some of them off as not as cool. for instance, if you’re a believer, when was the last time you thought about your salvation as an astounding miracle? as a story of you being dead on the bottom of an ocean, only for the Father to come to the bottom, rescue you and then breath life right into your lungs?
or maybe you read through the new testament and read miracles and marvel at them, wondering how they could be possibly be real.
i think that right there, the marveling and wondering if worshiping our Great God with our minds. as i read john 6 and how this man Jesus fed thousands of people with just a few loaves of bread and some fish. 5,000 men with some estimates of total people numbering close to 15,000. RIDICULOUS.
my God came down to earth, took on flesh, submitted to the Father. He did exactly as He saw the Father doing (per last post). so this story tells us something fun about God, as does the whole of scripture.
we see, in john 6, Jesus take some bread and fish and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, distribute it til everyone was full. He didn’t give it out til people had a little to eat. He didn’t distribute just enough. He gave everyone their fill and had much left over. i don’t know how much a basket was but that there was so much left over blows my mind.
as i think about if this is true, what does it mean for me, i think of ephesians 3:20 which talks about our God who does exceedingly abundant beyond what we can think or imagine. He is so much bigger than i often give Him credit for.
