The whole world witnessed a major miracle this week.
Yes, this week the world witnessed the power of God in action. And as I declare this I am not denying the role of technology and the skills of the rescue workers.
God uses practical things, and His people who cooperate with Him to create miracles.
The miracle I am referring to of course is that of the safe rescue of 33 miners in Chile this week. PLUS 31 of them have already been released from hospital to go home and begin their new lives.
Some interesting stories are coming out now that miners are here to speak and share some of their experiences. Of course there was tension and anguish in the first days before they were found. Yes, they thought that their lives would end there.
BUT God stepped in. Lots and lots of prayer was being lifted up from the families, friends and from all over the world.
Here is what happened:
Through the brother and daughter of Jose Henirque the ministry, Campus Crusade For Christ was able to send an MP3 audio version of the Jesus film and an MP3 audio version of the New Testament in Spanish to Henriquez down in the mine.
Jose’s reaction to this gift was:
We have prayer services at 12 noon and 6 pm.
Then Jose asked Campus Crusade For Christ to get them some T Shirts that said: Gracias Señor (Thank you God) on the front and had the text of Psalm 95:4 on the back.
Psalm 95:4 says:
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
Mario Sepúlveda is reported to have made this comment when he came out:
God and the devil were fighting over me and God won, he said. I always knew they would get me out. I always had faith in the professionals here in Chile and in the Great Creator.
Their faith was very strong.
Take courage, believe God and do all you know to do, and you too WILL come out of your prison.
