ATM- Automated Transmission of a Miracle
I believe that miracles happen every day to everyone, everywhere. It comes in various forms from healing the sick people to tiny blessings that are most likely to be left unnoticed. I had been a recipient of a divine intervention one time. It might not be something grand but God made it happen at the right time without any input from anyone. What makes it unique is that it was transmitted automatically.
The miracle occurred one Sunday last December. I was in a financial turmoil. There’s nothing left in my cash card and I only had 150 Philippine Pesos left in my wallet and it was still a week before my payday. It was hard to be in that position as I did not know how I would survive a week with that pitiable amount. Since it was Sunday, I ought to give tithes in the church. I was not able to give tithes the previous weeks as I was having difficulty making both ends meet. Although I don’t have a family of my own, I financially support the schooling of my three younger siblings, one of which is in college and the rest are in high school. However, I have pledged to the Lord that I will give my share that Sunday. I must admit, indeed I had second thoughts on giving up my last money. What if there would be delay on the Lord’s deliverance? Before I could change my mind, I put the bills into the envelope and put it into the offering box with my eyes closed. I have cast my lot with Him and can only rely on Him on what would happen next.
Little did I know that a miracle is bound to happen that very afternoon. I received a text message that a thousand pesos was credited to my cash card. I did not ask anyone to lend me some money let alone have given my card number to a single soul. I went to the nearest Automated Teller Machine to verify and there it was. It was cash plain as day and yes, it’s withdrawable. I have learned in this miracle that having faith is to still believe in the Lord and His promises even if there’s no reason left to believe. As Hebrews 11:1 says, It is being certain of what we hope for yet, we do not see.
