2 Kings 2:8
“And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.”
Have you ever thought about the less spoken of miracles throughout the Scripture? Those that are just as miraculous as the well-known miracles, yet they are rarely referenced.
The feeding of the…most would finish that phrase with 5,000 because it is the one to which we most often refer. Did you know there was another feeding of the multitude that was just as much a miracle as the 5,000? The parting of the…most would say Red Sea. The less spoken of miracles offer just as much truth and encouragement as those we hear about regularly. They lie within the pages of Scripture waiting for us to notice.
The Feeding of the 4,000 – Matthew 15:32-38
There were seven loaves and only a few fishes, yet Christ fed 4,000 and the disciples collected seven baskets after all had eaten. Yes, it was less people with more supplies, but it was still a miracle performed by the hands of Jesus Christ.
The Parting of the Jordan – 2 Kings 2:8-14
It wasn’t Moses at the Red Sea, but Elijah and Elisha at the Jordan. Different people and a different river, but the same miracle. They walked across on dry ground when they had nowhere else to go. The difference in this passage is that God parted the waters of the same river twice. Elisha asked for a double portion, and God proved His blessing on Elisha’s life and ministry by performing the miracle all over again through him.
Do we get so complacent that we forget or perhaps don’t even realize that each and every miracle is a miracle, and every blessing a blessing? May we avoid missing out on the blessing of the things that God does for us each and every single day that we live. Big or small, minor or major, every blessing is the same in God’s eyes.
The less spoken of blessings can be spoken of more often if only we would take the time to realize what God has done for us.
