Is there a such thing as a small miracle? By Karen Rowe

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10 King James Version (KJV)

Good morning dear friends,

Welcome to Hope in Today Ministries Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word.

Is there a such thing as a small miracle? By Karen Rowe


It has been a while since I have visited this end of the Ministry with you at FGGAM, but I am always with you in heart. Please pray as you enter … and I pray you get through to the song …. The Only Scars in Heaven :)


Today, some very amazing things have happened that lead me to desire to share my testimony (without saying a word) with you to encourage you in that God hears our prayers.  So Praise God and Thank God.  Can we say together Thank You, Jesus?  I pray that you get your miracle prayer answered Today too!


We can know the Best is God’s Way!


In the presence of my rejection … I have prayed for specific things.

By Faith, I prayed & pressed on.

By Faith, I prayed & pressed on.

By my belief God is showing me to do this … I did.

Today, I testify, God has moved in miraculous ways!


So, as it is today; It is by my belief God is showing me to write this for you.

God doesn’t force us.  Neither should we force one another.

When we come to know the reality, that life and blessings are set before us by God …  We too can do what God says to do, and by our faith, we can set our hearts blessing before those we love as God does, and do what we believe God says to do.


Notice God showing you ………. What otherwise you could have passed by! Thank God for showing us the way, the path, and the life!

Please hear this:

LEARN TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE!  And, don’t dismiss His Voice from your faith to ACT on what God says do!


God gives us a choice.


By faith, by faith … by our belief God is showing us what to do, we do and God begins to work in our faith!  Glory Hallelujah!

  1. How do you know God loves you?
  2. How do you know you love God?
  3. What can God do for you Today?

Of these 3 questions, the answer to Question #1 is that God died for us through and by Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living God.  The answer to Question #2 is that we must be Born-Again to begin to see our faith trust in God to see God’s Grace and Mercy kick in; that we repent and know and believe in the love God has for us to trust in God in the very simple things to the very hard things.  This is how I know I love God.  I trust Him that God died for me.  He was buried for me.  He is Risen for me.  And greater is God in me than anything I may face!  You can’t see Him, but he is in me.  And I love my God, My Father, My Savior, My New Spirit He has Created within me!

I Love the Mind of God!

Question #3:  What can God do for you Today?

God won’t provoke you.  God won’t force you.  God will give you the opportunity to see what He has set before you!

The process to see:  What do you want someone you love to do for themselves?

The Bible says, Don’t provoke them to anger.  Don’t force them.

Go ahead and in the presence of your rejection, set that need before them to give them a choice.  What is your faith believing God is showing you to do?  Just set it there and give them a choice.

And, be still and know God is God.  You love God right?  And you know God loves you!  God also loves those you love!  Trust God to be Patient; as God is also patient with me and with you!

Trust God to be Patient.

Give God Time to work.

Pray, may we see the salvation of the lord working!

You have prayed, right?  Then listen for the Voice of God.  Know His Voice and follow through to do what you know and believe God is showing you to do.

There is hope in God’s Word!  The Word was written for our learning & our hope.  If God can deliver the 3 Hebrew boys from the fiery furnace, He can deliver us too!

You love the Book of Hope God wrote for you, Right?  If not, pray to discover the Hope that is written for you to help you, encourage you, strengthen you, uphold you … and to keep you on the straight and narrow for the blessed life you can choose.

Life with God is good!

So, friends, That’s why we go through some difficult stuff!  God delivers us from it all!!!!    Then, we can show our children God can deliver them too!


All to give us HOPE!  God gives us hope and we can give our children hope.

I am writing to you today to give you Hope and I believe I am doing as God is showing me what to do.


The Bible is more than a book.  That Bible is our source, and without Jesus we are nothing.  Jesus is how we survive in this world!  Jesus is how we survive the hate.  Jesus is how we survive when people persecute us, and Jesus is how we pray for them instead of acting based on how they make us feel.

Focus on what Jesus has done for you, and act with God as Jesus has set a table before us and has prepared it in the presence of our enemies.

Glory be to God! When you receive this you will never be the same!

Glory be to God! When you receive this you will never be the same!

How do you survive in this world?

The answer is through Jesus Christ and His written word.

You must be Born-Again; then you start surviving!

Repent of your sin, and the Grace and Mercy of God start to kick in!

He died for my sins.  He is Alive and Lives for me!  Glory Hallelujah!


Think about what you are thinking about.  Check yourself.

Ask yourself, “Am I thinking as the Bible says to think?”  Or, am I downcast in my thoughts?  “Am I thinking about what God has done for me?


Friends, is there anything God won’t do for you?

  1. He is God.
  2. He died for us.
  3. He gives us Grace and Mercy!

These 3 completely disqualify me from needing to understand all that God knows about all God is doing!

The Word Up is to Trust God, and believe to act like the Word is alive and active in me.

Pray to Hear His Voice.  Learn to decern the Voice of God from your own thoughts and the thoughts/lies of the devil.  Again, the Word of God is the Truth to help you know and follow Truth _ Jesus!

What do these Scriptures have in common?  Is 26:3 & Ps 51:10.




Psalms 51:10

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

King James Version (KJV)


I hope this is a blessing to you.  I truly believe God gives us a choice.

Think about what you are thinking about.

Is there Peace for you?  YES!

Read on . . .


“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”
Psalms 51:10
King James Version (KJV)


Is there such thing as a small miracle?
In the smallest & simplest things, but the BIGGEST things that hurt my heart most, God gives me Peace and watches for me to see the results of Peace.
I noticed today the results of not giving up, continuing to praise God as I trust in Him, and one more thing … the faith that continues to give the choice & also by managing my words.
Patience is an act of love when we have established our faith & trust in our God.
Jesus is our HOPE and Life and love forevermore!
Why wouldn’t God work His Best into our lives!

He does!
We have faced things; & in my life that should have [if they could have] destroyed me, because I know who I am, BUT God has taught Perfect Peace in Christ Jesus my Lord!
I know what it *feels like to allow fear/emotions =adversity to have dominion over me, but God said NO! And taught me to recognize fear, frustration, agitation & even anxiety & gave me a choice to trust in Him. And, thru and by trusting in Jesus, my Savior, Lord and Friend, I am here to encourage you to DISCOVER SOMETHING that *the wicked will never come to understand.
If favor is SHOWN to the wicked, he does NOT LEARN righteousness; in the land of *uprightness he DEALS CORRUPTLY and does NOT SEE the majesty of the Lord. O Lord, your hand IS lifted up, BUT THEY DO NOT SEE IT. Let them see your zeal for your people, and be ashamed. Let the fire for your adversaries consume them.
Isaiah 26:10‭-‬11 ESV
In prophesy:
O Lord, you will ORDAIN PEACE FOR US, for you have INDEED DONE FOR US all our works.
Isaiah 26:12 ESV
Thru and by the death, burial & Resurrection; *Jesus IS the Resurrection…
Jesus teaches us still:
“These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. PEACE *I leave with you; MY PEACE *I give to you. NOT as the world gives do I give to you. LET NOT *your hearts be troubled, NEITHER LET *them be afraid.
John 14:25‭-‬27 ESV
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose *mind is stayed on thee: because he *trusteth in thee.
Isaiah 26:3 KJV

We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!




Praise God – For we are ever-increasing in HIS power and in His knowledge that is of God!


” For God

hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. “


Thru and By Jesus,
God has given us the Holy Spirit OF His Mind … A Sound Mind is HIS Mind, which translates to Self-Control & Self-Disclipline!       .  .  .  .   Is this good for you Today?


Obedience to God IN Faith in & of The Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is a POWERFUL Name! & Jesus is the name above all names.



“BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself, AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread, and drink OF THAT cup (1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV).”

“FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep (1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV).”

Thank you Jesus for this Revelation?  I pray in Jesus Name for you to Receive in Christ the life Jesus was Risen to Give you!  Do you want to be made well?  what did Jesus say to the man who wanted to be made well?



And, Always Remember 2 Things!  No, Today, God gave me 3 things:

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

3.  Always Remember to come to Jesus, Before you go head on.

How do you find out How much God loves you?  How do you get from Point A to Point B?





Point A *Must Repent

Point B *Beginning of Being Born Again.



Repent is a beautiful word!  It means letting go of condemnation & turning to walk with God In Jesus Name.

*We can’t get to where God is taking us if we wont’ let go of what is in one hand to follow Jesus with both hands ready to receive the life and blessings that are found in our relationship with God the Father through and by Jesus, the Son of God:  Jesus truly is the Christ, the Son of the Living God!  This is my Testimony, but by me telling you what Jesus does for me, this gives God permission to do it again in your life!


Can I say give God permission?  Sure!  As a parent is waiting on a child to believe enought to obey … to come into a trusting obedience:  yes, this response to God in Believing in Whom God is activates our believing Faith for God to do it again!  God is waiting on us to move from point A to point B!


1st Step to Being Born Again, Repent!  For the Kingdom of God is near to you!  Lord, I receive this!  I will never be the same!  The Kingdom of God is NOW!  Repent and Be Born Again to LIVE and Be set FREE from the law of sin and death (Pride and Selfish Ambition).

Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
