Miracle Worker


In Leeland’s praise and worship song “Way Maker”, his second description of our Father is God as “Miracle Worker.” The New Testament is filled with the countless miracles God performed through Jesus during His ministry here on Earth. From the Wedding at Cana to His ultimate Resurrection and Ascension into Heaven, Jesus shows how the smallest amount of faith in Him and His Father can lead to life changing miracles. The two miracles that impact me the most is the Calming of the Storm and the Multiplying of the Loaves and Fish, and Mark’s gospel does a pretty good job of detailing both of these miracles. Mark 4:39-41 states, “He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ The wind ceased and there was great calm. Then he asked them ‘Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?’ They were filled with great awe and said to one another ‘Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?’” If Jesus can make the wind and sea, strong and uncontrollable forces of nature cease, He and His Father can most definitely calm the storms in our personal lives. We endure so much in this life, sometimes things we don’t think we are able to handle. God says to you “Do not be afraid. Have faith in Me. I have calmed the wind and the sea, I can calm your anxiety. I can calm your depression. I can calm your financial struggles. I can calm your family disputes. I can calm any storm that this life throws at you.” In regards to the Multiplying of the Loaves and Fish, Mark 6:41-44 states, “Then, taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves and gave them to [his] disciples to set before the people; he also divided the two fish among them all. They all ate and were satisfied. And they picked up twelve wicker baskets full of fragments and what was left of the fish. Those who ate [of the loaves] were five thousand men.” I think it is very important to notice that all of the thousands of people were not just fed and full, but were SATISFIED. I absolutely love this miracle because it shows that God can take what little we have to offer and is able to multiply that and use it for our ultimate good. BUT we have to be willing to offer up what little we may have. At some points in are lives what we have to offer may be close to nothing, but our God is a miracle worker. He can take that minuscule amount and multiply it for our betterment. So today, take what little you have and lay it down at His feet. You will be astonished at what He can do.
