And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people. (Luke 7:16, Holy Bible, King James Version)
The Jewish nation had waited centuries in anticipation of the promised Savior but most didn’t recognize the baby Jesus as the Messiah. Now an adult, Jesus brought a widow’s son back to life. This miracle, an unexplainable event that defied nature, first shocked the crowd. Then they understood. This man who dwelt among them must be the Christ because even nature obeyed when He spoke.
Prayer: Lord, I recognize Your presence as you continue to visit Your people with miracles today as You did in New Testament times. You are more than a healer. You are the Savior of souls. Amen.
