January 21, 2021 - Miracles Continue Today

The mighty miracles in our lives are exactly the same today as they always have been for devoted disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ: making sacred covenants with God and receiving worthily priesthood ordinances, the fire of those holy covenants working on and within us, and receiving the power of godliness in our lives as we honor those covenants and ‘walk in all the ordinances of the Lord.

Elder David A. Bednar, "As Long As The World Stands", BYU Speeches, January 19, 2021

Sometimes in our lives, we like to compare what we experience with what we read in the New Testament, in terms of the miracles that Jesus performed. We think, at least I do, that because I haven't experienced these miracles in my own life, that miracles are not meant for me or they ceased altogether.

I know they haven't ceased. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Then I sit and ponder. And a couple of thoughts come to mind.

One, is there are many miracles that Jesus performed that we haven't read about. Jesus performed daily miracles in the New Testament. And He still does today. He is involved in our lives whether we know it or not. He is always aware of us. Have you ever experienced a tender mercy of the Lord? Is that not a miracle in and of itself?

Two, miracles don't need to be awe-inspiring or huge to be a miracle. Many miracles are small and mostly unnoticed. Not just unnoticed by those around us but even unnoticed by our very selves. I would venture to say that we have all experienced miracles, even if we didn't know it.

God and Christ want to help. Miracles are miraculous to us, but to Them, they are a simple act of helping us traverse this earthly life and nudging us in the right direction.
