"And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles."
Today I had the wonderful opportunity to go to a farewell of Grant Walker, whose family has long been friends with mine. Grant's father was my bishop through a pivotal time in my life, and his guidance and influence was instrumental in me serving a mission. While I was serving in my last area, just a couple months to go, I received word from my family that Bishop Walker had passed away. To anyone who knew Bishop Walker, this was devastating news. He was young, faithful, and one of the nicest men you could ever hope meet. Grant shared that, at that point in his life, he was struggling and wasn't sure what to do. But, through a miracle, God strengthened and inspired Grant to serve a mission.
Now, we learn in Ether that " ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith." Basically, it tells us that we receive miracles according to our faith. There can be miracles, if you believe. ;)
Yes, we can call down miracles by faith. But to me, the true beauty of miracles is how many of them simply happen because God loves us. He reaches out to us each and every day, and I imagine we are very often completely unaware of miracles He performs in our day to day lives.
This is my Christmas wish, in the name of Jesus Christ.
