Miracles

“A miracle is a correction factor introduced into false thinking by me. It acts as a catalyst, shaking up erroneous perception and snapping it into place.” (ACIM, COA ed., T-1.37.1)

Jesus indicates that he is personally involved in the bringing of miracles. And, as we learn elsewhere, miracles are always expressions of love. This means that they are expressions of love that Jesus inspires. We ought to be very humble in the midst of such knowledge.

Our own self-directed “miracles” would likely be misguided, because we cannot see the whole picture. Often we think that we would like to do something nice for someone, and we wonder if this is a legitimate miracle to perform. Just ask in our mind. That is the best way to come to understanding. Wait for the intuitive nod from Jesus himself.

It is a legitimate question as to how one entity can do so much. This is simply an unknown when it comes to Jesus. We need to suspend our judgment and look at the results to the questions we pose to the universe. Once we have been reassured that all is in good order, it would be unwise to continue to doubt. Give Jesus the benefit of the doubt. I for one think he knows what he is talking about.

The perceptions of ourselves and others have been very wrong for eons. Now we have been given a way to be sure that our perceptions are clarified to real truth. Miracles effect this, and so let us ask that miracles be our way.

When we are perturbed, remember what Marianne Williamson said, “I could have had a miracle!”

  1. I enjoy your thought provoking posts. They are deep and sometimes, like with this one, I find myself re-reading your post to comprehend your direction and meaning. I have recently seen a miracle occur and can offer a couple observations. First, miracles and answers to your prayers do not happen in “your time” but on God’s which make it difficult to comprehend how this plays out in the God’s grand plan. Second, miracles are often not something biblical such as the sea parting or Jesus feeding hundreds from a small basket. The one I referenced involves a family member making a remarkable turnaround from a life of trouble after many years of sin. I can only attribute divine intervention to her sudden turnaround 9 months ago. Thanks for your work and devotion keeping your blog going.
