America, Choose Between Magic or Miracle”! October 10 Devotional by John Hagee
ROMANS 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and to humbly implore His protection and favor.”—George Washington (October 3, 1789 Proclaiming a National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving)
We have no right to complain about something we have the ability to change. The gospel holds the transforming power of change.
In a teaching by John Maxwell, he stated, “The problem with the church today is they don’t want miracles, they want magic.” He makes a very real observation: while Christians complain about wanting to change our government—hoping that abortion will become illegal and crossing their fingers, eager to see homosexual marriage banned—we actually do nothing to see those dreams become reality.
We must not discount the supernatural power of God for one moment; the miracleworking power of God has never ceased. We need to let His supernatural power flow from the Church into our world. “If God be for us, who can be against us?”
Those who prefer to feel inadequate and choose to believe that one person cannot change anything are truly mistaken.
Numerous times throughout history the power of one person has changed the masses.
Biblically speaking, Esther just one woman, saved the Jewish people from annihilation.
A more modern example is Rosa Parks; her one action, refusing to move to the back of a bus, ignited the civil rights movement and changed our nation forever.
