Anchor Your Heart with We the Kingdom
God Still Does Miracles, even when you don’t see them
Life can be unpredictable and challenging, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and uncertain during difficult times. Ed Cash, from We the Kingdom (WTK) contemporary Christian music band, reminds us God is capable of miraculous things, even if we don’t always see them in our own lives.
WTK’s single, “Miracle Power,” was inspired by the band’s personal experiences with loss. During one of the band’s road trips, Ed and his bandmates received the devastating news that Toby Mac’s son had passed away. Ed reflected in a conversation with Family Life Radio, “Sometimes it’s so hard being human. I mean, just some of the things that we have to deal with on a given day.”
The inspiration behind “Miracle Power” continued when Ed’s father was diagnosed with dementia. “Our dad had cancer three times. He survived all of those. God really worked in some miraculous ways in that, but ultimately, it was dementia that took him out of this world and home to glory.”
The song’s bridge was inspired by a conversation Ed’s mother had with God. Ed shared, “I remember one time [my mom] was just talking to God … she said, ‘You never know what a day will bring.’ And the bridge – “I may not know what the day will bring, but I know who brings the day,” talks about what she really sensed the spirit of God speaking back to her.”
Ed’s father’s faith in God never wavered, a testimony to the power of trusting in God’s plan, even when it’s challenging. Ed said, “I’ve seen the miraculous hand of God. Any time we talk about miracles, I think it’s one of those times.” And even then, Ed says it can still be a struggle, “It’s like, ‘Well, if God can do miracles, how come He’s not doing miracles in my own life when I want Him to.’ I have to remember that God is sovereign. His ways are higher than our ways.”
In the Bible, we see many examples of God’s miraculous power. He performed miracles throughout the Old and New Testaments, such as parting the Red Sea (Exodus 14:21-22), healing the sick (Matthew 8:16-17) and feeding the 5,000 (Matthew 14:13-21). God is the God of miracles, and He is still performing them today.
“I don’t need to see a miracle to believe that God is capable of them,” Ed said. We should have faith in God’s ability to perform miracles, even if we haven’t experienced one ourselves. In Hebrews 11:1, it says, “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see” (NLT).
Learning to trust in God’s plan can be challenging as a human being, but it is necessary to develop a deeper relationship with Him. Ed reflects, “We should anchor our heart in the all-powerful, all-knowing, sovereign Lord and trust Him with all our hearts.”
