Miracles are Real

Miracles are Real and They Happen More Often Than We Realize
Teresa Neumann (December 28, 2011)
"God alone can go beyond the laws of the natural world by superseding the known laws of nature. Such miracles are an appetizer course for the main meal that is the Kingdom becoming present in the future." -Pastor James Garlow

(San Francisco, CA) - James "Jim" Garlow, senior pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church and author of Miracles are for Real: What Happens When Heaven Touches Earth contends that people often miss the reality of miracles.

In general, Garlow believes there are two camps when it comes to believing in miracles:  Skeptics, those who "have an inborn arrogance based on the idea that if they don't believe in miracles, they can't occur," and Christians who often "label things as miracles" too quickly.
However, the end result of miracles, says Garlow, "is always making God's glory known to saints and sinners alike."

The bottom line is that miracles can be happening around us and we don't realize it because we're looking for something else. For example, says Garlow, "The way in which faith can follow us through all of life's changes."
Keeping one's faith through decades of decades of trials and challenges constitutes a miracle because it makes God's glory known to others.

The take home message? Keep your eyes open for miracles that point to Christ and let them inspire and motivate you to further God's Kingdom.
