14 Feb Recognise Your Miracle Today!
Journal Reflection of Day 6 (13th February 2017)
In the evening his disciples went down to the sea, got in the boat, and headed back across the water to Capernaum. It had grown quite dark and Jesus had not yet returned. A huge wind blew up, churning the sea. They were maybe three or four miles out when they saw Jesus walking on the sea, quite near the boat. They were scared senseless, but he reassured them, “It’s me. It’s all right. Don’t be afraid.” So they took him on board. In no time they reached land—the exact spot they were headed to. – John 6:16-21
The disciples could not recognise Jesus!
Recognise Your Miracle Today!
Many times, God has already answered our prayers and we could not recognised it. Missing our miracles is like watching life through a black and white television. We lose the ability to see the colours of God and live life to the fullest.
“They couldn’t see water that was right in front of them,” – Abel Cruz
The story of Abel Cruz is the story how one man recognised the answer the God has already given and made a big difference in a community in the far-flung areas of Lima, Peru.
Everyday, 768 million people do not have safe water to drink and 1,400 children below the age of five die of water-based diseases. Helping to alleviate the situation, Abel Cruz decided to install the fog catchers after years of living without running water and waiting for the water grid from the city to be set up in their area. This initiative enabled the poverty-stricken locals to have access to clean water!
Stealing A Bit Of The Sky
Teresa, a local resident, says that the innovation is like “stealing a bit of the sky.”
The disciples of Jesus could not recognise Jesus walking on water towards them. The Answer has arrived and yet they got afraid. Don’t miss the love of the Father walking towards you!
Could you recognise one miracle that God has answered in regard to your predicament?
Will you be an answer to someone around you today?
Hear the voice of the Holy Spirit,
“It’s me. It’s all right. Don’t be afraid.”
