Our ability to perform miracles is inseparable from the higher purposes we’ve been created to fulfill.
In the Book of Exodus, the story is told of the Prophet Moses parting the Red Sea in order for the Israelites to escape from their slave masters. This is considered by bible scholars to be one of the greatest miracles in History.
I think it is interesting to note that Moses wasn’t able to part the Red Sea merely because he wanted to do something amazing. He wasn’t focused on producing miracles. He was obsessed with his dream. It was his vision of freedom for the people of Israel that gave him the capacity to invoke divine intervention, transcend the obstacles on his path, and manifest the miraculous.
Moses was not power focused. He was purpose driven. That’s why he did extraordinary things.
Creativity isn’t about competing with others, proving ourselves to skeptics, doing big things to impress our friends, or demonstrating power for the sake of demonstrating power. Creativity is about allowing God to uniquely incarnate itself through our lives and work.
Our access to creative power is clearest when we’re focused on doing what we’re called to do.
Each person’s purpose in life is an invisible miracle factory producing the perfect manifestation of power at the perfect time to ensure the perfect fulfillment of one’s calling.
The world is filled with people who seek after power, but it is ruled by those who are filled with a divinely inspired vision of who they are destined to become.
When you move confidently in the direction of your passion and purpose, power will become an afterthought because your life itself will take the form of a walking miracle.
