God is a God of miracles. Basically, a miracle is an act of God beyond human understanding that displays God’s power, and acts as a sign that God is at still at work in the world. As I’ve shared my “home selling” journey, I now get to share my “home buying” miracle! Last week, we closed on our NEW house that is a miracle from God.
I’ll try to keep this story short, but we sold our house in just one day in April. We know God was directing us to sell, but at the same time, we didn’t know what our next steps would be. I figured we would be forced to rent and wait out this crazy housing market for a few years. I soon found out that many people were doing the same thing and therefore the rental market is also gone crazy. It was a long 30 day wait as I struggled to be still and trust God, but then the miracle occurred…An older lady (a saint) from our church (Purcellville Baptist) decided to move out the custom home that her and her deceased husband had built 15 years ago and she was willing to sell it to us, for a very fair price, before it went on the market. In the natural, the odds were against us, but thank God that He is about the natural and last week, we closed on our new house! God is good all the time!
Psalm 77:14 (NIV)
14 You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
So, What… for This Week?
God has a miracle waiting for you, but the question are YOU waiting on Him. Are you trusting Him, or are you running ahead and making your OWN way? Maybe it’s time to step out in faith and then wait for Him to show up to do the impossible.
Haha – Wonderful news on your new home – Praise God for His timing, love, faithfulness and mercy towards His children. He really is the same today, yesterday and forever and across the whole world. Thank you for your words of encouragement and challenge.
