September 25, 2020 Devotion - Scripture: Luke 1:37; Song “Miracles”
It’s Friday of another long week and Covid-19 is still not over. We might be ready to give up. Often when I meet people feeling this way, in desperation they say, “I need a miracle,” almost like it’s not really possible but knowing there’s no other way. That’s because we are looking to ourselves or others to solve our problems whether it’s Covid-19 or relationships or finances or illness. You name it, someone is feeling that way today because of these and other situations they are in. Colton Dixon, from American Idol sings a song called “Miracles” that speaks to this. He sings that miracles are more than a coincidence and that they happen from above. Of course, as Christians we know that miracles do happen because God loves us. The greatest miracle of all was that he sent Jesus to die for our sins so that we can live forever with him. And the God who was willing to go that far for us is capable of providing miracles. That’s the message of hope I have for your this Friday. On our own we will want to give up but with God’s help miracles happen. It might be a small one like making it through another week, it might be the biggest miracle of all, Jesus dying on the cross for us and being raised from the dead as proof that what he suffered covers our sin. Jesus’ mother Mary, was in tough situation, pregnant and not married, still a virgin when the Angel came to her in Luke 1. She asked the angel, “How can this be?” The angel talked about how the Holy Spirit would come upon her and the power of the Most High would overshadow her. The same Holy Spirit and the power of the Most High are with you too. In Luke 1:37, the angel explains it all with these words, “For nothing is impossible with God.” That would be the answer to Colton Dixon’s question is our song as well. “How can miracles happen?” “Nothing is impossible with God”, right? So on another dismal Friday during Covid-19, be encouraged. A miracle happened in your life when God claimed you. Covid-19 will over someday even if God has to perform a miracle. In the meantime, listen to the song, and be ready to answer the question, “How can miracles happen?” “With God, nothing is impossible.”
