Do you believe in miracles? I know that I do, for if it had not been for the miraculous, I am confident I would not be here. Like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego I just walked through a fiery furnace unscathed. My entire family was diagnosed with the variant of covid and ten days later we have all been given a clean bill of health. With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Matt. 19:26 (NIV)
How could our entire family be diagnosed with covid all at once? Initially I did not even know if I believed that the virus was out there. I thought only the elderly got it. I never imagined it would touch our family.
As I lay in the cold and sterile emergency room, I longed for the comforts of home. I was the only one in our family who was displaying symptoms. My breathing was shallow, I was becoming delirious because of an elevated temperature and I could not remember my own name at times. However deep down I knew that all would be well, there was never a doubt.
It was lonely laying in the hospital room with not even the nurses wanting to come in, everyone feared the knowns and unknowns of covid. I was on oxygen twenty-four hours a day; I thank God I did not end up on a ventilator. As I lay there, I felt the prayers of the saints upholding me, especially in the midnight hour. I kept hearing the lyrics of the Jabari Johnson song “It’s a fixed fight and we already won, the devil is already defeated.” This song was an encouragement, it reminded me that as children of God we are victorious, we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. Romans 8:37(New Living Translation). Jesus conquered death, hell and the grave therefore we have power over everything.
What about you, do you believe in miracles? After staying in the hospital for what seemed like an eternity and then being released to go home without having been on a ventilator or having any further complications, I believe God can do all things. When you seek God’s presence and request for him to intervene on your behalf you can see miracles happen.
