MIRACLES IN A WINTER STORM

 
"As evening drew on, the boat was far out on the lake while He was alone on the land. Then, seeing them tossed about as they tried to row with the wind against them, He came walking toward them on the water." —Mark 6:47-48
 

Christmas is a celebration of the miraculous. A virgin gives birth, wise men follow a star, the Spirit descends in the form of a dove, the Father's voice is heard from the heavens. The miracles of Christmas confirm that "nothing is impossible with God" (Lk 1:37).

Right now you may be facing "impossible" circumstances. You need to cross the lake in a storm. You must restore your marriage although your spouse is not willing to cooperate. You are called to resurrect your spiritually dead church. You must witness for Jesus at work, but your co-workers are trapped in sin. Your youngest son doesn't go to church and is ruining his life, but he won't listen to you. You face "impossible" circumstances, but Jesus can get you across the lake through the storm. He can get you to the other side of your problems (see Jn 6:21).

Christmas is the proclamation and the promise that Jesus will do miracles in your life as He did at the first Christmas. He's walking on your water in the middle of your storm. Let Him get into the boat of your life and be your Lord.

 
Prayer: Lord, take over my boat and take me anywhere You want.
Promise: "Our love is brought to perfection in this, that we should have confidence on the day of judgment." —1 Jn 4:17
Praise: Three times Sarah was scheduled for surgery and three times she prayed. Each time the cancer disappeared.
