I do love experiencing miracles myself but also love reading them in the Bible. These are what inspired me to come to Christ. There’s many ways that people come to Christ because God almost always uses different avenues, seeing as though we all have different circumstances. Matthew 9:20 – 22 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.”And the woman was healed from that moment. Can you imagine bleeding for 12 long years? At that moment in time if that had happened to you you would be considered unclean and unable to attend events and be seen in public. This woman however was sick and tired of how her life was unfolding and decided to take a leap of faith. This may not have seemed like a huge leap for us but she could have been stoned to death just being in the vicinity of Jesus, let alone touch the very fabric that draped His body. Matthew 17:20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. Just by touching a piece of cloth of our Holy One she believed that that and only that would cure her! And He did! Just remember that a mustard seed is a very small seed, but just that teenie tiny bit of faith can give us immeasurable strength. Heavenly Father, thank you for yet another beautiful day! Thank you for the chance to be better Christians then we were that day before. Forgive us for our sins Lord set us back on your path. Help to increase our faith in you today by witnessing all the little and large miracles throughout our day. In Jesus name, Amen!
