Expect Miracles

Expect miracles.

Two little words, but don't they convey a great depth of meaning?

From whom does one expect miracles to come?  Only from the Lord.  He is the only one capable of performing miracles in our lives.

Expect. . . the dictionary gives three definitions for this word.

Regard (something) as likely to happen.
Regard (someone) as likely to do or be something.
Believe that (someone or something) will arrive soon.

The definition of miracle is given as: 

"a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency."

This applies so well to our relationship with our Lord.  If we live a life of trusting Him by faith, as we are called to do, we will live a life of expecting something to happen which others cannot explain.  We will be living expecting miracles.

 "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:  as it is written, The just shall live by faith." (Romans 1:17.)

By that I don't mean we will see visions or hear the Lord speaking to us audibly.  What I do mean is that we will see Him meet our needs in ways we could have never explained in any way except by His hand.  We will see His promises fulfilled in our lives in countless ways.  We will be amazed at His workings as we expect and look for them in our lives.

Let us join with the Psalmist in declaring that there is only One upon whom we should wait: 

"My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him." (Psalm 62:5)
