In Jesus' time, many miracles were performed that subsequently led to large conversions. But even Jesus is quick to remind his listeners that miracles will not actually create true and lasting faith. True faith often exists in the absence of dazzling miracles. Through the prism of faith, we see that literally all of creation is, in a true sense, a miracle--direct evidence of the hand and influence of God.
Dear Jesus, help me to recognize that all my life is miraculous and to appreciate you in every detail of every moment of all of my days.
