“The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.” Matthew 16:1

Miracles have a very specific purpose. They are intended to glorify God and bring people to faith. When your faith is doubted, the desire to see a miracle is very strong.

To have complete faith is to be able to accept the situations you are in, whether good or bad, and know that God has placed you there for a certain reason. Sometimes we do not know what the reason is, but when we have the ability to let go and turn everything over to God the answer will be come apparent.

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, we should stop and think of what Christmas is really about. It is easy to get pulled into our busy schedules and lives this time of year. We get so wrapped up in our lives that we don’t open our hearts to hear God’s word or see the miracles that are there.

Dear God, I ask for you to open my eyes to all of the miracles around me. Prepare me and those around me for the miracle of the birth of your son, Jesus. Give me the faith to know that you are always there to take care of us all during the good and bad times in our lives. In your son’s name, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
