Remember the wonders he has performed. —1 Chronicles 16:12
About a month before getting engaged to my beautiful wife, I had just moved into my first apartment. When looking ahead at the money we would need to put aside for a wedding and honeymoon within the next year, and comparing it to the money we coming in, I felt like we could barely pay for the wedding, let alone the honeymoon to follow…but we were going to pray for a miracle.
Within just a few days of fervent prayer, I received a promotion at my current job…but God didn’t stop there. Just days later I was also contacted out of the blue by an old acquaintance to start working with him a few hours Saturday mornings. This would be working off of my own computer in my own home, using my graphic and web design abilities.
Within a few weeks I had already saved enough for our honeymoon in its entirety. And this just with the work I did Saturday mornings. Needless to say, I knew it was a miracle! Here was a mighty God caring enough for a soon to be newlywed couple to provide all they would need. And he hasn’t stopped.
When I think of the wonders he has done in my life, I am always reminded of that first Christmas night, when a mighty, all-knowing, all-powerful God wrote His name on the heart of humanity, stunning us with the generosity of forgiveness and the joy of unconditional love. The birth of Christ is the answer to our most fervent prayers for love and forgiveness. From the manger to Calvary, the life of Christ is the greatest wonder of ALL.
A wonder-filled life is ours when we know the Christ of Christmas.
