The measure of a miracle

How you see
May not be
The way things are.
Optical illusions
Lead to
Incorrect conclusions.

The idea of miracles is controversial. Some people say that miracles can’t happen–that there’s nothing outside of nature that can act on nature–nothing supernatural. They insist that everything has a natural cause. Of course, if that’s the case, then even their words and opinions have a natural cause–the mere outcome of nervous energy working in their brain cells.

Perhaps the measure of a miracle isn’t the way that something happened, but the impact it has on your mind and heart. Inner miracles are as amazing as miracles in the physical world. Changing a human heart requires assistance. Where does that inner assistance come from? I believe that it is supernatural, from outside of the natural world.

Some people deny the existence of the devil, but no one denies the existence of deception. We’ve all been tricked by the cruel devil of deception.

The intrusion
Of illusion
Brings delusion
And causes
Truth decay.
Perception matters.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
