Psalm 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Miracles, Signs, Wonders, Marvelous Things. These are statements often used when something happens which we cannot explain, or if it seems to be divinely given. People have flocked from all over the world to see what is believed to be apparitions of the Mother Mary in everything from window glass, statues of her crying what many have claimed to be real tears, pieces of wood which appeared to have her picture in its grain naturally, and the list goes on and on. People flock into the so-called Miracle Crusades of Evangelists such as Benny Hinn to witness what they believe might be a miracle.
However, true miracles seem to go unnoticed every single day. In fact, some feel they have the right to erase these miracles from the pages of history. To what am I referring? Children. The greatest of all miracles next to salvation I believe must be the birth of a new life into this world. God sends to us what He calls a heritage of the Lord. In other words, as an inheritance from God, He has entrusted these little children to us.
So, what are we doing with His little children? Can we erase them from history with abortion? NO, we have simply sent them back to the one who entrusted us with them to begin with. History is HIS Story. It is a story God is telling over time. How disappointed He must be to have the gifts He has given to us with love, returned as unloved by us. In addition, we ourselves were once the same gift given with love to another. I imagine you are glad God’s gift of you was not returned.
Pray today for your children and the children of others. Thank God for the little miracles, sitting at the dinner tables around the world tonight. Pray they receive all the love and care God intended for them to receive. Miracles are all around us.
