Miracles. The Fingerprints of God.

When you sit down to read a book from your favorite author or view a work of art, drawn by your favorite artist, you realize that there are things that sets the author’s writing or the artist’s strokes apart from others. These things are of particular interest to and for the edification of the true fan. The same can be said about the masterpiece of creation.

Miracles are fingerprints or the master strokes of our creator across the canvas of creation.

Sure, God has the capability of making a sterile perfect rendition of his creation. However, how is his creation supposed to realize, appreciate or praise his true mastery without slight deviations from what is natural?

In a free will reality, miracles are expected in a creation where it appears that God is absent from the day to day. We need occasional reminders that show God is still in control.

Also, these reminders have to be supernatural in nature in order not to have a natural explanation that could be written off as a natural occurrence, and build the faith of those who recognize the fingerprint of God as for what it is. That is how God works. God planned these slight deviations before the beginning of time. I don’t want to go off on a predestination tangent, but it plays right in.

On our side of the window, our reality is natural and we have the free will to do and believe anything we want. On God’s side of the window, he sees the beginning from the end and has determined when a Godly fingerprint, or miracle could be place upon his canvas in order to say, “Don’t worry, I’m here.” He has determined, or predestined, when to perform his miracles, without upsetting the applecart, and giving the observer a choice to believe or not.

On our side of the door that separates our reality from God’s, there a sign that says, “Enter, if you so desire.” Once you enter, you notice a dinner banquet where you are the guest of honor. God says, “Welcome, you were expected.” You turn and notice the sign on the inside of the door. It says, “Preordained before the beginning of time.”

God is in control and is the Master Painter.
