Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
I've had a few experiences similar Terry.
My wife was TERRIFIED of storms for many years. One time in particular things were very bad. Lightning, high winds & tremendous thunder were really scaring my wife.
We were watching radar as these storms were going crazy and I prayed that they would break up & go around. Within seconds the thunder & lightning stopped. The wind and heavy rain ceased immediately & the clouds parted directly over our property. On radar we could literally see the storm break into as it passed over our property; then close back after it went by.
It truly was an amazing miracle. I have seen God do this on at least 6 occasions. Every time it happens, it's just as awesome as the first.
But, I have to ask myself, should we really be amazed when God performs a miracle for us?
Should we take a lesson from Jesus when he spoke to the storm, the fig tree, to the sick & even the dead; and truly EXPECT that God will perform a miracle on our behalf?
(I honestly think the lessons Jesus was trying to teach us when HE quieted the storm, healed the sick & raised the dead was to TRUST God & "expect" HIM to move on our behalf.)
