A God of Miracles

“And again I speak unto you who deny the revelations of God, and say that they are done away, that there are no revelations, nor prophecies, nor gifts, nor healing …Behold I say unto you, he that denieth these things knoweth not the gospel of Christ; yea, he has not read the scriptures; if so, he does not understand them.

For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing? And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who doth vary, and in whom there is shadow of changing, then have ye imagined up unto yourselves a god who is not a God of miracles.

But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are.” (Mormon 9:7-11)

I like how Moroni says “if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who doth vary…”. Regardless of what we think or try to make of him in our minds, God is who he is. It’s amazing to me to consider that the same God who parted the Red Sea to save the Israelites is watching over us now. When I think about that, and also about the great things our loving father has already done for me, any doubts and fears fade away that I have about my future and the good things that are ahead for me.

Moroni wrote that he saw our day and knew of the unbelief and hardheartedness that would exist in our society. In particular I find it sad that so many will rely on the limited knowledge of man alone when facing difficult health issues or other struggles and would forget that God has promised help and healing to those who have faith in him and rely on him. We live in a day of miracles, no challenge is too difficult and that can’t be met and overcome with God’s help.
