What makes you believe? Are you constantly looking to refute the case for God and Christ a course in miracles, or do you live at the other end of the spectrum – seeing miracles all around you?
Of course, both realities exist. It depends on your outlook and perception acim online. It’s most likely you fit somewhere between these two vast poles – you’re not easily persuaded, but still not altogether dissuaded either. Epiphanies happen but not all the time.
Those who do not see yet believe are blessed (John 20:29). This is a bitter pill to swallow, for what reason is there to believe in Jesus but to experience his miraculous Presence?
We can almost sense Jesus’ mild frustration in this statement above. ‘They’re coming to use my power again… then, they’ll believe… and what’s the point, they won’t believe the truth behind the power if they can’t see it before the miracle,’ seems to possibly be his thinking.
People who need the case of God to be proven – beyond the shadow of any doubt – generally have a weaker faith than those who don’t. Yet, there are not many who don’t see or perceive miracles before they believe.
And yet further still, God is expert in demonstrating his miraculous power to get a doubting baby-believer over the line; a taste, the conversion, then the real work of discipleship begins – suddenly this “miraculous” God’s gone on A.W.O.L.
And how else would we learn the trade of “faith” if we weren’t thrown into the deep end? – made to exercise our burgeoning patience of faith in real-time, with our real-life issues, frustrations, challenges and sorrows.
Belief, and therefore trust, is bolstered almost certainly in the miraculous. And perhaps where this fits most is for the person who’s already a reasonably mature believer; the person who’s had God’s Presence disappear on them all of a sudden – for days, months, years perhaps – and in their worst pain. And this does happen.
Is it perhaps our role as disciples of Christ to take him at his Word and not require him to pull out his magic box of tricks to thrill and amaze us, intuiting from us our ‘Praise-the-Lords’ and ‘Hallelujahs.’ The latter is at best an immature and spoiled-rotten faith if this is what we would espouse. This “faith” is getting us nowhere with God. We’ll certainly not be “blessed.”
If you are infected by hemorrhoids, then you are sure to hear of the H Miracle system which has gained fame and importance regarding the treatment of hemorrhoids. But many of us who are not familiar with the term frequently enquire ‘Does H Miracle work?’ The success of H miracle system is profound and the system has helped a large number of people to solve their problem of acute pain and misery. Hemorrhoids refer to the swelling of the nerves around the anal region which is really disturbing. The H miracle system offers great solution to this health condition and that is the main reason why it has become so popular.
Hemorrhoids can be either external or internal and while the external ones cause severe pain and bleeding, the internal ones are mostly painless if they do not become prolapsed. External hemorrhoids are visible around the skin at and around the anal region and these may result in producing bright red stool. The main point which is to be kept in mind is that a proper diagnosis of the situation and the analysis of how far the hemorrhoids have developed is important to start your course of treatment. Without an accurate diagnosis by a professional, it is hard to treat this problem. Once treatment is started, hemorrhoid sufferers should take special care of their diet routines which will in turn stimulate proper metabolic activities and will also result in easy removal of stools. A diet which is rich in milk and dairy products is suitable for this purpose and also inclusion of a number of products which are high on fibers will also serve the purpose and will certainly help in easier waste removal.
