Writing for God, Fighting Human Trafficking

Linda Rodante

Have we forgotten what God can do?

I don’t know about you, but I remember the miracles God has done—at least some of them. Because he has done many in my life and in my children’s lives, my mother’s life, and so many more!

My oldest son is a miracle. For four days after he was born, the doctors said he might not make it through the night. He had aspirated pneumonia. But on the fifth day they said, “Take him home. He’s fine.” Really? From “won’t make it one more night” to “take him home”? We didn’t argue, we just took him home. He’s completely fine today!

My second son was about three when we raced him to the hospital. Long story short, we knew something was wrong. He seemed to stop breathing in the car before we got there. His body was cold, and he was not moving. We were praying the whole time. I felt God speak to me that he would be like the boy on the back of his mother’s donkey who had died and then God raised him from the dead (2nd Kings 4). When we got there, one of the things they did was take his temperature. It was so low, the doctor was shocked. Through the day there was one diagnosis to another, from the doctors telling us he had a deadly disease to suddenly “He’s fine. Take him home.” Really? Take him home? We did, and he, like our older son, is fine today.

Years ago on a Friday, the OB/GYN doctor told me one of my ovaries was as big as grapefruit. He told me to come in for exploratory surgery on Monday. So on Sunday, I went up for prayer at our church. On Monday, the ovary was normal!

I remember my oldest son crying because his eyes hurt from chlorine in a friend’s pool. We prayed, and he fell asleep inside of five minutes. When he awoke, he was fine. God cares for the little things and the big things.

I remember the second son jumping up and down at the mailbox when his G.I. Joes showed up weeks before they were supposed to. We had just prayed that he would get them when the mailman came and stuck the package in the mailbox.

God is a rewarder of those that seek him. In fact, he says we must believe that, believe in his goodness! “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Heb 11:6

Many times these days, we are told we have to suffer though life. Yes, we go through hard things in life, but God is always there—to comfort and to offer miracles, to bless and keep us. We have forgotten his goodness. He is not just a companion, although he is that, but he is also a miracle worker. He is the creator of all things—this world and all that is in it. Let’s reach out to him again in hope and in faith for the miracle we need.

No, we don’t always see it. We’re not sure why. But let’s look again to the Lion of the tribe of Judah, our captain, our Savior, our God. To Jesus. I don’t think he’s run out of power. I never heard him say that he wouldn’t heal a person, either. Did you? No, he healed everyone that came to him. Let’s run to him expecting!

When has impossible ever stopped God?
