Magic-God or Real-God?

I am always sharing stories with my family about miracles that God is working in the lives of people that I know. Healings, opportunities being presented, relationships restored, and lives being saved.

It makes me wonder sometimes if I am creating a magician God for them. He is wondrous and powerful, yet there are many times when it feels like He just doesn’t show up. There are many times that the healing doesn’t come and the suffering just has to be endured. What do we do then?

It’s then that we take those moments of miracle and remember that God is never far away. It is so easy to cover the blessings with the fear or sorrow in the suffering. It’s so easy to put God off for later while we deal with the crisis at hand.

But it is in precisely those moments that we need to remember the times when we saw a miracle. It is then that we need to remember the time when God parted the seas. There are millions of those moments, and even in the times when what we want isn’t being given to us, there are many other blessings that are.

Jesus says, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:30) He didn’t say it wasn’t large and intimidating. It’s just that when He walks with us and we carry what He gives us and no more, we can do it with peace. We can do it with joy. At the very least, we do it with Him.

My yoke is easy and my burden is light, Matthew 11:30, Amayzing Graces, Karen May
