Present Day Miracles

Over the past few weeks I've been following a real life, present day miracle story about a man named Graham Stump. Here are a few lines from a special webpage set up for folks like you and me to follow this amazing story:
On Friday, July 30th, Graham Stump 27, was involved in a horse riding accident in Schroon Lake New York, that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. Currently Graham is in a coma at Albany Medical Hospital and is in the fight of his life. Graham is married to Randi Stump and is the loving father to his two boys, Wyatt (2), and Keith (1).
The latest updates (which you can read in the archives of the webpage) indicate that God is mightily at work in Graham's life and that he is surpassing all expectations related to his recovery. I encourage you to take five minutes out of your day to pray for Graham today.

How did I hear about this amazing story? Amee Schnarrs is a member at New Beginnings. Her brother is Graham's pastor in New York. It has really been neat to see how this story has affected Amee and many others who have prayed so hard for Graham and his family. By the way, Amee will be sharing a testimony this Sunday at New Beginnings about Graham and his incredible story.

All this leads me to ask you this question today: Do you believe that God can still work miracles? No, I mean do you really believe that God is still presently doing the miraculous?

One book title that always jumps off my shelf at the church is "Your God is Too Small". Regrettably, I haven't even read that book. But, it sure does convict me every time I look at it. Maybe in some ways we have limited God to the "safe" and "clean" confines of an ancient book or a stained glass building.

God is still a miracle-working God. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). There are certainly tens of thousands of stories just like Graham's. Maybe even your story points to the reality that God still works miracles.

What do you think? Do you believe that God is still in the miracle-working business? Do you have any stories about His amazing grace?
