Luke 5:26 Everyone was gripped with great wonder and awe, and they praised God, exclaiming, "We have seen amazing things today!"
These people had just see a man that couldn't walk stand up and walk because Jesus told him to... they were amazed, in awe, blown away!!.... Today God makes wondrous things happen all the time... miracles!... and we are so use to them we forget to notice!!.... like medicine that heals things that even 50 years ago would have taken a life...we take a few days of antibiotics and wa-la all better.... surgeries of all kinds that remove infection from our bodies that would have killed us years ago...and those surgeries get more advanced and less invasive each day!... cure rates for many cancers are up..... cars are a miracle... the fact that I can drive for just half a day to see my daughter!!... imagine having to walk that distance.... I would never get to see her..... airplanes that take you to far away places and back again.... that huge piece of metal filled with people that can't fly....flying through the air... a miracle... don't you know that the first people that saw a plane fly knew without a doubt that that a plane flying in the air was a miracle... and you can think of a 100 more if you try... things that are miracles... things that God gave man the ability to make, to do, to invent..... they are wondrous miracles that God made happen in a different way...... we need to see the miracles, to be thankful for them... we need to remember to be gripped with great wonder and awe and praise God for all the wondrous miracles of our time... think of a modern day miracle that has touched your life and thank God for it!!
