Great Miracles Come From Small Things

As we draw closer to Christmas, the words from one of my favorite holiday songs keeps playing in my head. The song is about the magi following the star to find baby Jesus. Even though Jesus is small, they recognize that He is a King with the ability to bring us all together. The central theme running throughout the song is that even great miracles come from small things.

When I look around at all that has happened over the course of this year—especially as of late—I see many parallels between the time Jesus was born into and the time in which we are currently living. There was great conflict in Israel at the time of Jesus’ birth and it was the stars in the sky that signaled His arrival, which was to change the world forever. However, most of the people during Jesus’ lifetime didn’t understand who He was and what He was doing for them.

And what is going on today? Conflict and turmoil on a worldwide scale. As well as signs and wonders in the sky, as showcased by the Christmas Star conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on December 21st; an event that hadn’t occurred in nearly 800 years. 

Jesus once said, “You know how to tell a change in the weather, so don’t tell me you can’t tell a change in the season, the God-season we’re in right now.” (Luke 12:56, MSG) 

The same thing is occurring today. God is moving in new ways but it doesn’t look or feel like we expect it to be. Many are not recognizing His hand in current events because it doesn’t make sense. All breakthroughs are preceded by limited sight, uncertainty, and oftentimes a battle to hold on to the promise until it manifests.

We are at a uniquely pivotal time in history right now. All the signs are heralding that something special is coming. Just like the magi, we need to embrace it with hopeful anticipation. And we are nearing the celebration of the greatest miracle the Earth has ever experienced, that originated from the most humble birth of a tiny baby in a stable. If nothing else, just remember that great miracles come from small things.

Breaking Free From the Matrix

Every false system of this world, of men, and of the enemy must be revealed and removed. When we are born and raised in a truly Matrix-like world, we are often unaware that almost everything we were taught or learned growing up is not part of God’s intention for His creation and does not originate from Him. And God is about to shine His light into the darkness to reveal what is truly from Him and what is not.

It is the beginning of a new season of stripping away the hidden and revealing the truth. It’s time for the unveiling of the plans God has always had for mankind and the earth. It’s time to trust what you hear from God, let go of the old, and embrace the new because God is breaking us free from the Matrix.

Thanksgiving Blessings!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a day for remembering all we have to be grateful for. This day is especially important to me because I remember the gift of life.

On Thanksgiving day over 40 years ago, my mom had a stroke at the tender age of 30. What should have been the worst day of our family’s life turned into the beginning of a series of God-ordained events that brought about a miraculous healing along with the strengthening of our family and our faith.

May you be blessed this day and every day. And, may you also remember that every day there is a reason to be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!
