Reflection: The greatest miracle of all was when Jesus rose from the dead three days after His crucifixion. This was according to God’s plan and was foretold by the Old Testament prophets. God is almighty. He rules whether or not we believe.
God’s mighty acts can be seen when you watch the rain fall, or the wind bending the trees, or the waves cresting on the shore, or a mountain stream tumbling over the rocks, or just a rainbow. What more is there to say? God is great. God is good.
