Are you dealing with a lot of difficulties in your life? You probably think it’s a bad thing. The word for difficulty in Hebrew is ‘peleh’. The word for ‘miracle’ is the very same word ‘peleh’.
You see, every difficulty in your life is a potential miracle. In Isaiah 9:6, Messiah is called the Counselor of miracles, but you can also take it as the counselor of difficulties. In the Gospel, you find His miracles with the blind, lame, crippled, poor, the grieving, those in mourning, the thirsty, the sick, the lepers, the guilty, the sinful, and the outcasts. We find the miracles in our difficulties. You have to learn in your difficulties to find His miracles. Those who found miracles are the ones who lifted up their difficulties— their withered hands, crippled fingers, sinful eyes— to the touch of His hands and the difficulties became a miracle (peleh). The difficulty is the very thing that allows you to have a miracle. So, lift up your difficulty to the touch of God’s hand, and the difficulty will become a miracle (peleh), because that’s what it was all along, in disguise.
Today’s Mission – Today, embrace the difficulties in your life. Praise God, lift your troubles up to Him, and open them up to the touch and power of God, until they become the miracles of peleh.
