Welcome to the second part of a series entitled “Miracles Still Happen.” The miracle from heaven I’m sharing today wasn’t born of as much desperation as the $100 miracle, nor as showy as the miracle when my vision was restored, but it was just as welcome.

It happened early in my time as a peer-to-peer funded missionary when I was still learning about how God provides. There was a little more month than money, and someone who owed me money monthly was short. Again. I understood the circumstances, and I believed God had called me to financial patience, so I waited even though the delay made me short of funds.

If I was going to the office, I needed to buy gas but I only had $4 cash. I didn’t want to use my debit card because the balance was low. It wasn’t $37 low but it was low and my scheduled deposit was still a couple of days away. On this particular morning, I pondered whether to work from home or ask for a miracle of gas fumes and go to the office. 

I Needed a Miracle From Heaven 

“Lord, if you want me to go to the office, you’ll have to give me some cash,” I prayed.

The Still Small Voice answered instantly. “Look in the middle drawer.”

I never meant to argue with God, but I had already looked in the middle drawer. I’d looked in all the other usual places I stash a few dollars, too. No money anywhere.

“Which drawer is that, Lord? The middle drawer of my desk doesn’t have any money in it. I looked there yesterday.”

The impression of the middle drawer was so strong that I quit arguing and went to look.  I pulled open the drawer and a white envelope was on top. Where it had never been before. I opened it, and there was $25 in cash there. More than enough to buy gas.

I laughed and thanked God for the miracle from heaven and how sweet He is and decided, on the spot, that He meant for me to go to the office to work so I did.

Miracles are Needed and You Can Help

It was confirmation that miracles still happen, and a huge blessing to me, but I soon learned miracles still happen all the time. Single mothers have one story after another about how God provided for their needs in miraculous ways. They, too, love this way of life.

If you’re in a position of need, take heart. God has more than enough funding available to meet your needs and He’s willing to help. Just ask.

If you’re in the position to give, take a look around you. There are single moms, senior adults on fixed incomes, and missionaries all around us who are praying for a $10 or $20 miracle, and you can help. When God prompts your heart, pass along a blessing. 

I’ve been the one who was flush with cash and able to give here and there. It’s the most fun you can ever have. Receiving a miraculous provision is awesome, but it’s still more blessed to give than to receive.

“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13 nasb

What about you?

When God gives us a miracle from heaven, we’re supposed to share it so that He can be glorified by what He’s done. What about you? Have you received a miracle? Share your story in the comments below. I’d love to hear what God has done in your life.
