And when He comes

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 33:10-36:22, Galatians 5:13-26, Psalm 64:1-10, Proverbs 23:23

All of my life I have eagerly wanted to see God working miracles, so when I read Isaiah 35, it hit me right in the heart.

And when he comes, he will open the eyes of the blind
    and unplug the ears of the deaf.
The lame will leap like a deer,
    and those who cannot speak will sing for joy!
Springs will gush forth in the wilderness,
    and streams will water the wasteland.
The parched ground will become a pool,
    and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land.
Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish
    where desert jackals once lived.

 

These are the things I have always longed to see – people experiencing life-changing physical healings that are simply not possible by human intervention and a restoration of the natural world to abundance.

This was certainly the case when Jesus walked the earth. Is God still interested in miracles to confirm His plans in the world? I hope so. What stands in the way? Is it my lack of faith or the skepticism that is the nature of our world (or perhaps of my own heart)?

I am still on the lookout for these miracles and will continue to hope to see them in this life and in the next.
