Living In Miracles
The word ‘miracle’ keeps losing meaning to a modern man as science tends to promise a solution to all problems of man. Even those challenges that seemed hard in the past such as conception without oviducts, science has promised IVF techniques. The modern man therefore seems to believe in science (a mixture of reason, knowledge and mineral) than he can in the vast power of the SPIRIT – God the giver of knowledge, reason and creator of mineral. This page will encourage you to think beyond science, and learn to focus again on God whose power, the mind of man can not fathom.
GIVE UP YOUR HISTORY OF PAST MISTAKES
A boat sailing on a sea leaves behind it a wave. One can never determine the direction of the boat by just looking at the wave left behind by the boat. Instead, it’s the boat’s engine that determines its direction on the sea. Sailors are less concerned of the magnitude of the wave behind the boat. It’s but a wave, it’s gone, and it’s past. It can’t help the boat, nor can it harm it. It’s just a wave created by the boat.
We all make mistakes in life from childhood, through adulthood which look like waves on our paths of life. At times, society wrongly defines and labels us basing on our past history as; robbers, prostitutes, killers, stupid, failures, adulterers, etc. We struggle to fit in the society with such labels on our foreheads. “Yes, I was a robber, killer, prostitute, failure, but I am not now. That was but a label of my past and it was necessary that I pass through it for it has made me who I am today and the evidence is; I passed through it. I am free now because I have a present to open and explore”.
As the wave of the boat cannot drive it forward, our past mistakes cannot move us forward. It’s therefore useless to spend much of our precious time digging deep ’exploring’ our past mistakes, pains, and failures. Impress the present and the gifts of nature and move forward.
Avoid being defined by your past. Darkness clears when light appears. All guilt of past mistakes clears when we learn to consciously impress God’s love in the present and connect with Him in prayer.
You are beloved connected to one true indivisible source- God. Your past is like a play or a film with bad and good characters, but all of them are necessary, otherwise it wouldn’t be a play or film. Your wilderness was necessary. After all, you passed through it and now you are here. Rewrite your new agreement with yourself about who you are, and what you are capable of achieving in this life. You are not what history defines you. You are wonderfully made.
“I am fearfully and wonderfully made” Psalms 139:14.
“Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move forward”. Exodus 14:15
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new is here. 2 Cor: 5:17
