40 Days - Book 7 | Prayers and Devotions on God's Amazing Miracl
While skeptics proclaim miracles don’t exist, and many Christians question their reality, in today’s broken world it seems most everyone could do with a miracle of some kind.
Dennis Smith reminds us that miracles do still happen today. However, God’s Word must be received into the heart by faith for the miracle to become a reality. John wrote that it is through our faith in God’s Word that we receive the promise; “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” (1 John 5:14, 15).
Concerning this Ellen White wrote: “As surely as the oak is in the acorn, so surely is the gift of God in His promise. If we receive the promise, we have the gift. “Faith that enables us to receive God’s gifts is itself a gift, of which some measure is imparted to every human being. It grows as exercised in appropriating the word of God. In order to strengthen faith, we must often bring it in contact with the word.” (Education, 253).
