There is God

So, I picked up my computer from the Microsoft Store. My old one, still under warranty, was switched out for a new model. I had the new one home one day, and the keyboard started doing funky things, like not typing when I hit the i, the l, and the backspace. But then sometimes, those keys would work. So I wasn't sure if it was me, or the keyboard that was deficient.

I called Microsoft, and they told me to bring it in. I did so, and they told me a critical update had just been released, and once I installed that, the problem would be taken care of. However, the critical update would take an hour, so they told me to go home, do the critical update, and all would be well.

I went home, did the critical update, which took two minutes, and all was not well.  The problem with my keyboard, though reduced, was not solved. They told me to do a "power shut-down" which should solve all my problems. It did not. I called them back, and they scheduled another tech appointment today.

Meanwhile, I turned off the computer, and ate dinner. When  I returned from dinner, the keyboard had miraculously healed itself. I typed this blog without any trouble.

All I can say is: God performed a miracle.

Sometimes He works like that. It defies any reasonable expectation how God can take an impossible situation, and work it in the absolute strangest way possible into something good. All of you who have seen God's miracles in action know exactly what I am talking about. All you who are skeptics just think I am nuts. I was a skeptic once. Finally, the inexplicable miracles got to me.

I had no choice. I had to choose God.

For those of you lying in a ditch, covered with the vomit of your own sinful life, there is hope. There is God.

Acts 4:30 

While you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

So Jesus said to him, “Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.”

And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.

And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues;

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

And God was doing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul,
