While waiting to see my eye doctor, I stumbled upon an article on Miracles from Heaven. The piece in People’s Magazine recounts the events of Anna Beam, a 10 year old battling a debilitating disease. To avoid ruining the ending for those who plan on seeing this 2016 film, Anna experiences what can only be described as a miracle from heaven.
He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them, Mark 6:5.
Those who are agnostic or atheist will tend to explain stories like by with chance, destiny or fate. However, when someone is presumed dead and awakens completely healed and transformed, even skeptics have to admit the validity of this true story. For some it only takes one brush with death to straighten up. Unfortunately, many individuals use up their 9 lives quickly without ever learning from previous mistakes.
He was amazed at their lack of faith. Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village, Mark 6:6.
Depending upon your definition of a miracle, there are countless that occur daily. The birth of a child, recovering from an illness and the sunset are examples of this term. Yet, Jesus reveals an important factor in regards to miracles. Without faith the power to perform miracles ceases. Thus, in order for miracles to continue in America and throughout the world faith must be exercised. Until this atmosphere develops and prospers, miracles will remain few and far between, confined to Hollywood until revival commences.
