The God we serve is unchanging…

So much to share… I will start by stating fact – Elijah was clinically depressed! Instead of feeling victorious after the above occurence, Elijah felt hopeless, alone and afraid. He had low self-esteem and wanted to die. He wanted to sleep and had to be encouraged to get up and nourish himself. Elijah, a prophet, Biblical hero, and person of faith, was seriously depressed.

We in preset day have diagnoses that we live under. My frank question is “Do you want to be used?” I will ask that seriously again. Do you want to be used by God? For a brief moment, let us consider biblical His-Story of individuals that found themselves in untenable situations but rather than give up, turned to God. There literally is no place to start: Cain killed Abel, because it was a family of people who lived on the Earth at that time – all related biologically, in his distress he asked God to spare him for killing his brother…

I need say no more.

This legend concerns Job, a prosperous man of outstanding piety. Satan acts as an agent provocateur to test whether or not Job’s piety is rooted merely in his prosperity. But faced with the appalling loss of his possessions, his children, and finally his own health, Job still refuses to curse God.

We dwell on the OT. Let us take a walk in NT times…

If you ask Google more than 68 million results would suggest that Jesus performed 37 miracles that were recorded in the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), with Mark’s Gospel recording the most. It may seem a little surprising that the Bible records only 37 of these innumerable miracles.

A miracle is an act not fully explained by natural forces but attributed to supernatural forces, mainly God. There are many definitions of miracles. But, Biblically speaking miracles involve God doing something uncommon and usually awe-inspiring in order to reveal Himself to Mankind.

The miracles of Jesus serve as a glimpse and foretaste of what God will accomplish on a grand, universal scale when Jesus comes to establish the New Heaven and the New Earth.

The Savior’s miracles were “divine acts” as well as “part of the divine teaching” (Bible Dictionary, “Miracles”). Healing and other miracles are still found in the Church today, though they aren’t always dramatic and aren’t always spoken of publicly because those who experience them hold them sacred.

Miracles glorify God. Miracles declare that God is active in our world and that He can disrupt the activities of nature to reveal His Character and accomplish His purposes.
