Before I continue, allow me to say one definitive thing: God’s greatest miracle is man, continually sustained by God, bringing us the ultimate divine principle, Man is of God.
Moses, Joshua, Elijah, and Elisha all proved the power of this relationship in what we all call miracles. God gives us miracles through Life, which is through people and their everyday deeds by helping each other. God meets us daily through the Life and Love so graciously given. To me this is an outstanding miracle, considering that most humans avoid recognizing Gods in their lives.
Everything good is made by God; everything that is valueless, is not made by God. Miraculously, Man is Good. When I doubt this, I go to my time of meditation, bringing God’s Love into my heart and move beyond the inertia of mortal unreality, praying for God’s aid in changing my direction. God assures me that all is well.
In Deuteronomy, the scribe writes, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord (6:4).” And Jesus added that we love our neighbor as ourselves. In one way or another, we all pray, but the kind of prayer we all must pray is one for humanity to grow in Grace, being patient with others, doing good deeds, being meek, not overbearing, and demonstrate brotherly love, God’s Love.
Mankind has created a pathway devoid of love; most of us walk in unreal darkness through our lives; but God offers a different pathway, one illumined by Divine Love, Divine Life. God works only through this Divine Love and Life by using us humans to communicate love and healing through His Word. God never meets us outside of this Divine Love and Life.
My goal in life is to recognize that all of humanity is of one body, the Body of God’s Eternal Life and Love. Man’s greatest and most deadly disease is turning away from this principle. I pray that when I face God, I can say that I am not guilty of this sin, and, I can honestly say that I am and have been one of God’s miracles.
