"I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well." – Psalm 139
How would you respond if someone challenged your faith with: "Show me a miracle – and I'll believe in it!" You could answer: "Take a look at me – I'm one! Then take a look in the mirror. You'll see another one!"
The fact that you are alive today is nothing short of a miracle! Your life is the continuation of an unbroken genetic string reaching back all the way to the first parents. Look back at your family tree and see how many times the cord came close to being severed. Was it in the Civil War? In a plague epidemic? On a slave ship crossing the waters from Africa to America?
You are a survivor of survivors of survivors! How often you yourself have survived near-death experiences, you will never know!
Your life has a special purpose. There is a reason why you are alive today. You are a walking miracle! Whatever your racial origin, ethnic identification, educational level, or economic bracket, you are special! You are a winner! You are alive!
Do give your life totally today to the God who brought you here. Let Jesus Christ – the Ultimate Survivor, who rose from the dead on Easter morning – be your best friend, and share His wonderful love with the people you come into contact with today. That, at least, is your reason for being here.
God must have believed that you'd be a good person to spread His love around in the world today! God has not let you down. You won't let Him down either. You have every reason to be super-grateful. Think of it: Saved for such a high and holy purpose.
Our God is a god of miracles – you being one of them!
