The Miraculous is His Normal


How God loves his people to ask him in faith—pressing in, continuing to ask no matter how long it takes, believing that he will come through for us. I just got off the phone with a friend who has been praying for her children to come to know Jesus for thirty years. Sometimes she loses hope and needs others to carry her hope for a while. But she continues to pray and believe. She’s right to do so. Because, really, what’s too difficult for God? A virgin giving birth? God himself becoming a man and living among us? Flooding the whole earth, maybe? Or coming for you? Coming to you in your thirst and in your uncertainty? The angel Gabriel said, “For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37 WBT).

The miraculous is not a strange thing to God. The miraculous is his normal. Divinely interrupting our lives is not an extraordinary event. Supernaturally showing up, speaking into the heart, and creating a longing for himself—this is his realm. He speaks to us. He leads us. He heals us. He presses into us with his manifest presence as we reach out to him. He moves through us with power, revealing his glory. God has come. God will come. God loves to come.
