Believe in God’s miraculous power and trust in His will.
In the movie, Bruce Almighty, starring Jim Carrey, God bestows His power onto Bruce. However, with this power comes numerous prayer requests. Instead of considering each one, Bruce hits Reply All and answers “Yes.” It doesn’t work out very well. What if God had said “Yes” to Jesus when he asked not to endure the suffering of the cross? Our reconciliation with God would no longer exist and we would have to pay the wages of our sin. It can be very difficult to accept God’s answer to our prayers, but, when you pray, trust that God’s answer — whether yes or no — is in line with His will.
Should you pray for miracles then? Yes, absolutely! Pray for healing from terminal illness. Pray for God to open each person’s eyes to His glory. Pray for the Red Sea to part again, or for the deaf to hear and the blind to see. Regardless of His answer, God’s love for you never fails.
