While our lives aren’t always fairy tales with happy endings, we can believe the supernatural is working all around us.
Fairy tales and fantasy. In both, the main characters face an overwhelming task or obstacle, one that would seemingly lead to their demise. But just when it appears all is lost, a supernatural event occurs. The straw is spun into gold, the magical kiss awakens the sleeping beauty, or the goose lays a golden egg.
Instead of viewing conflicts and pitfalls as paths to our ultimate ruin, we can embrace them as opportunities for God to step in and save. In 2 Peter 2:5-8, we read about two supernatural acts God performed: the flood and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. But Peter is quick to remind us that in the midst of terror, God miraculously delivered His people.
God instructed Noah to build the ark, and He allowed Lot to escape Sodom and Gomorrah. In other Scriptures, we read that He closed lions’ mouths, parted the Red Sea, saved believers from the flames, caused the blind to see, and raised people from the dead. The supernatural was alive then and still is today.
When we walk with God, we acknowledge He holds the power to save us from the storms of life. We can have faith that the trials we are facing are not the end. Where our limits end, God begins. The same God who provided miraculous plot twists in the Bible is longing for us to hand over our stories for Him to write.
Hand God the pen, and let him author the next chapter of your life. Who knows where His plot will take you.
