Obstacles into Miracles

As I sit and I write this piece, I am amazed at all of the things that I have witnessed God do in and around my life.  He has taken my past broken life filled with addictions and struggles and brought healing. He has taken my marriage that was so broken years ago and turned it into an incredible love story between my wife and I. He has taken my son who had several medical conditions (asthma, seizures and eczema) and worked so many miracles and has brought comfort. I have seen so many miracles happen from the struggles that we have experienced in life. I believe that the God of the Bible is a God who takes struggles, pains and obstacles and turns them into incredible opportunities to do miracles. Think about the story of Moses and how he and the people of Israel were surrounded by Pharaoh’s army on one side and the Red Sea on the other, and God parted the waters. Think about the story of Daniel and the lion’s den and how God sent an angel to shut the mouths of the lions. Think about King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah and how massive armies from all over were coming to destroy them and God told the people of Judea that this battle is not yours but God’s. God then showed up and did an incredible miracle. Each and every time one of God’s people faced an obstacles, struggle or pain; God showed up and simply did an amazing miracle.
 
                God is a God who turns obstacles into opportunities for miracles. God is a God who takes struggles and then turns them into ways that He can show His power. God is a God who turns hard times into incredible times. God did in the days of the Bible and He still does it today.
 
                What obstacles, struggles or pains are you going through in your life? I hope that you seek God and trust Him through all of the hard times in life and then watch Him turn every single obstacle, struggle and pain into an amazing miracle. 
God Bless,
Pastor Kevin
