Ok, so someone told me recently to lower my expectations regarding certain hopes I have.
He told me that God just isn’t going to do something for me no matter how hard I pray.
Now, he said other things I agree with- I have to do my part, I have to suffer in Christ, etc. That is all true.
But why should we not pray for miracles? Or, why should we limit God in our hope/expectations of miracles?
If we are to believe that God doesn’t perform miracles, then why believe in Christ?
Why believe Jesus did any miracles?
Why pray for healing?
Why pray for world peace?
Why pray for anything?
And then why hope?
If we are to be ridiculed or pitied for hoping for miracles of the impossible, then doesn’t that destroy every thing Christians are supposed to believe? Transubstantiation, anyone? The resurrection?
What is the point?
