If you’re doing God’s work, don’t be too surprised if you get God’s help! The apostles needed a miracle to get right back out on the street to heal and to preach. So, that is exactly what they got.
“Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed. Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation, and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, ‘Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life’” (Acts 5:16-20, NKJV).
Some Christians don’t believe in miracles; others do. Don’t let any pre-conceived notions come between you and what God wants to do in your life. Not every miracle will be as dynamic as this was—some will involve angels, some God’s Spirit. Some may involve other believers and some unbelievers.
God still works miracles, great and small, in the lives of those who serve Him. Finally, don’t be too surprised if He works one for you—or even through you!
