I am pausing my God in Three Relationship series as I had something that was weighing on my heart.
I saw the trailer for the new movie coming out in April, “Breakthrough”. It is a movie based off of the Christian Novel, “The Impossible”. In the movie a teenage boy falls through the ice and is rushed to the emergency room, he is in a coma and the doctors are saying that he will die. His Mother refuses to give up and prays for a miracle.
(Here is a link to the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ui6m_eEEOI)
I personally love these types of stories, I watch many videos on miracles and read many books on the subject of miracles.
However after watching the trailer I did the last thing any sane person should do, I read the comments.
There were many comments from angry atheists who were upset about the idea that Christian’s thank God for what doctors do.
They’re missing the message, the story isn’t about not believing in doctors but believing in a miracle from God when the doctors say there is no hope, it is also about a community coming together to support a family in their time of need and the struggle of faith in a horrible situation.
There is also many asking why God chooses to heal one person and let the other die. What you have to understand is our bodies are just a vessel for an eternal soul. We Christians are not of this world, our world is heaven with God.
You have to have faith in God no matter what. I saw a video of a woman who talked about a troublesome pregnancy, the doctors told her she would almost certainly not come to term and she prepared to give birth to a still born child.
She said she knew God would heal her son either through a miracle or through his death. How amazing is that? Such beautiful faith, knowing that even if the child wasn’t born into this world he would go home with Jesus.
God healed her child, a miracle happened and he was born happy and healthy.
What an amazing God. We should all feel blessed when God intervenes in this world and not complain when you think He isn’t. We don’t know better than God and we need to focus on all that He has done for us. We are alive because of God.
God is the grand creator. All of us are created in God’s image. It’s not about doctors versus God, God and doctors are on the same team.
When a doctor uses his brain and saves a life, we praise the God who created the brain. When a scientist invents a new medicine we praise the God who invented the scientist and the science. We praise God always.
His love is greater than any miracle on this Earth.
Have a blessed week,
