It’s A Miracle We Do Not See

Matthew 14:19, NIV: And he directed the people to sit down on the
grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave
thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the
disciples gave them to the people.
If we examine the evidence—if we weigh carefully all of the facts at hand—if we
enlist the aid the best scientists and mathematicians available, we will fail to
discover the true reality that is known only to us as a miracle. Consider the
calming of a sea, the walking on water, the feeding of thousands on the contents
of a small basket. There is no logical, scientific, mathematical answer. It is
what it is. To us—a miracle, but to God—it is simply who He is. But, try as we
might to understand, we still try to explain or reason away what can only be
seen through eyes of faith. And so long as we continue to try to understand
God’s math through the application of human common sense, we will (to our loss)
completely miss the miracle.
