The Miracle of Change
Not so much like a sea parting or an ax head floating but the same force that acted upon that water and that iron also changed my natural dynamics and the course of my life, and now I am acting differently than I or anyone else ever expected.
My previous nature was to sin and to enjoy sin. I also languished as a young occultist and later as an atheist. My parents constantly fought (loudly) in our home and often threatened to divorce each other. Going to school was a type of hell in itself on multiple levels, and fear of the future—more of the same with no hope of change—was depressing.
From Normal to Miraculous
This was as normal for me as flow is to water and weight is to metal. The things of nature and the nature of things do not change unless acted upon by super-nature.
There I was, minding my own business, when suddenly I wasn’t sinking anymore! The course and direction of my life changed. I was still me but not me at the same time. It was a miracle.
Come to think of it, I am a greater miracle than the parting of the Red Sea or that floating ax head. Though those phenomena were amazing and important, they were also temporary. The change in my life has been constant and ongoing and not only that but God is doing something greater to me than He has ever done with H2O or Fe. God is taking a sinner and making that sinner to be like Jesus, His only begotten Son.
The Power of God Working
Gravity, molecular structure, inertia, chemistry, and kinetic energy, are all laws that God made up, His world His rules, and He can suspend them at anytime that He so desires and when that happens all the Christians declare “miracle” while the dumbfounded world can only check the box—An Act of God.
That’s what happened to me—an act of God—but in a more astounding way. It was not a suspension of the laws of physics, in fact, it wasn’t a suspension of any of God’s laws. The miracle of me was due to the action of the law. I was rightly judged to be, and condemned as, a sinner, a parasite, a predator. It was my nature to “go with the flow” of evil. It was my predilection to sink. So to alter who I was, the second person of the spiritual and holy Trinity, the Son, became incarnate; that is, physical and spiritual at the same time. He took my sentence and was judged for my sins by a real crucifixion. And it is here that it all goes crazy—like the Red Sea parting and the ax head floating—“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
That’s why I stated that I am a miracle. If you could have seen me where I once was and where by grace I am today, you would readily agree—an act of God. Every Christian is just like the sea and the ore, what God did to and for us has affected many others. He stepped in and changed what was to what is. We are all another miracle story, another display of His power and His glory.
