A God of Miracles..!

My grandmother a woman of God, was of simple but great faith, and it was while growing up on her knee I learnt to trust the same God she worshipped with same childlike faith she had. A lot of which came to me through stories she related, real and vividly true ones!
One was how, when they as a family were in Singapore during World War II, Japanese bombers came in day after day, hour after hour bombing towns and villages, and it was then my grandfather a preacher started a prayer group, in which men and women prayed through the day and night for safety. Later after the war, a Japanese pilot told a member of that town, that whenever they flew to bomb that town, there was always a cloud over it and because of which the pilots couldn’t see through and flew past.
Another story was about her son, a fighter pilot, whose plane I was told caught fire while he was flying, “And Bob,” she told me, her eyes alight with tears of joy, “angels carried him safely down to earth!”
Later, I was told it was a parachute, but I believed my grandmother’s version.
In my book DARE I have mentioned three or four other episodes of simple, childlike faith in my life, and have written about them because I believe absolutely and completely that my God, a God of miracles is very much at work in our lives.
Why am I speaking of my long dead grandmother and the faith she taught me to have? Yesterday, like most days, I played with my daughter’s year-old dog, on my terrace. It had just rained and I chuckled as agile Noah kept himself from sliding and slipping all over. Suddenly, seeing a bird sitting on the parapet wall he lunged and before my horrified eyes, I saw him, slide over the wall, and fall forty feet to the ground below.
I heard his pathetic scream as he hit the ground, and as I ran panic stricken to the stairwell, and raced down, all I did was cry out to my Lord and my God, imagining the bloody sight that would greet me when I reached below.
I found him standing!
Slightly forlorn, very dazed and in shock. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I expected him to collapse any moment, but slowly we climbed the steps back together.
Not a scratch!
The vet came later and examined him for internal injuries. It seemed I heard him silently whisper, “It is a miracle!”
Noah watches me now as I write, and do I hear him saying, “Tell them a God of miracles is there for any one of those who believe and call on Him!”
In the background I hear Jesus telling his disciples, two thousand years ago, as he heals the sick and raises the dead, “With God all things are possible!”
‘Oh yes!’ I shout..!

  1. Precious piece Bob . So apt for a Sunday morning . May millions read it and open their hearts and minds to the miracle working God whose name is Jesus . That’s my simple prayer as a tribute to your grandmother .

    1. God protected Noah from the flood then, but he still works miracles in our time today..Noah is blest. A living testimony to a living God, beautiful Bob

  2. Oh yes With God all things are possible Amen to that Thank you for sharing lovely stories of simple faith Bob Yes that’s all He is looking for in us, faith the size of a mustard seed with which we can move mountains with His grace We serve an awesome God Praise be to Him 🙏

  3. A hair raising experience which sent shivers down my spine. Didn’t expect the miracle but helped me think and feel how inadequate my trust in the Lord is. Thanks for sharing.

  4. “With God all things are possible “With this belief we can face all the challenges that confronts us in our life’s journey. It is when this belief slips from our conscious that doubts assail us , we lose our Confidence, negativity sets in and we begin to falter. Yes Bob, with God all things are possible!!

  5. Faith is the only stability in a swirling whirlpool of distress and chaos.
    Only complete trust in God will calm the uneasy mind.
    Those who trust, have the courage to grab His hand and take the plunge although they do not envisage what He has in store in the form of miracles !

  6. Beautiful article,Bobby! I’m elated at our Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent and all loving God calling us beloved as Cecil, in his podcast today, mentioned. Thank you for sharing the interesting stories your sweet grandma told you.
