What keeps you from believing in miracles?
A mother answered these questions with boldness and unique faith. The results stirred attention and a film was made of this miraculous event.
The scenario took place in a St. Louis hospital. The story is about John Smith who fell in icy water and remained there for 15 minutes. The news read, “When rescuers brought him to SSM St. Joseph Hospital West, the teen wasn’t breathing. Paramedics and doctors did everything in their power to bring John back, not willing to give up. They performed CPR and other life-saving measures on him for 43 minutes—without regaining a pulse.”
Medically, the boy was dead.
They called his mother to the room to give her the bad news.
What did she do? She prayed. She declared out loud God’s power and the Holy Spirit upon her son and believed she would receive it.
What happened next is that blood began to flow in that dead boy’s veins.
The doctors shocked and stunned couldn’t give explanations. They only had one conclusion: it was a “genuine miracle.”
The chilling details.
Here are the chilling details: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/02/04/inspiration-nation-mom-prays-son-back-to-life/22883985/
I’d like to meet that mother and tell her, “I want faith like yours. To be that bold, and overflow with trust.”
Her trust didn’t drive her to beg, but declare God’s healing power. Her faith didn’t lead her to lament the circumstance, but prompted her to praise the Lord for what He knows how to do. And she didn’t sink into sorrow, instead she believed God’s promise, claimed and received it.
While she claimed it in faith, the mountain was removed.
“I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you” (Matthew 17:20).
Father, teach me to look to you for that unwavering faith that proclaims what You can do and what You will do. In Jesus’s name.
