MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!
Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. Can 21st century people believe the hand of God still touches people today? Read and you’ll find new insights.
SILENCE BECAME SOUND
Lee Strobel writes in The Case For Miracles about miraculous events that changed his mind from skepticism to faith. These stories were picked up from his experience and journeys. Here is another one of those events that created a new hope for Lee Strobel.
A well credentialed physician, Dr. R.F.R. Gardner had the opportunity to review the medical evidence both before and after the miracle occurred. This is unusual since circumstances don’t usually produce the same occasion for confirmation. However, the medical records for the nine-year-old British girl diagnosed her with untreatable lateral sensorineutral deafness. (For personal reasons we will only call her Annie.)
Once diagnosed, Annie was fitted with hearing aids that helped her to a limited degree. However, Annie didn’t want to wear these devices all of her life. She went on a crusade to ask friends to intercede for her. Annie constantly prayed for herself and her parents joined in. She was soon surrounded by intercessors.
“I kept feeling God was telling me to pray especially for healing,” Annie said. “Passages kept coming to me.” She read in the Bible, “If you have the faith of a child … if one among you is ill lay on hands… And you shall receive …. Your faith has made you whole.” These scriptural verses encouraged Annie not to give up and keep praying
Unfortunately, Annie’s hearing aids were damaged at school. She had no other recourse but to return to the audiologists. She was examined and the devices refitted. Satisfied with the adjustment, she went home.
The following morning when Annie awoke, she knew something was different. Suddenly, she realized she could hear. Jumping out of bed, she rushed down stairs to tell her parents. Bounding down the stairs, she cried out, “Mummy, I can hear!”
The mother called the audiologists. “I don’t believe you,” he said dogmatically. “It’s impossible.” Finally, he hesitantly acknowledged it would take a miracle to restore hearing and wanted another audiogram done immediately.
To the astonishment of everyone, Annie could not only hear words and sounds, but whispers. The audiologist concluded “I have no explanation for this. I have never seen anyting like it in my life.”
What happened? The medical profession had no answer. Annie did. People prayed. She constantly interceded and believed in biblical passages.
Can it still happen? It does everyday.
