I find it natural to make the link between the obvious and fact. It seems reasonable, clear, and logical to walk down a path from observable to the documented. Whatever this process really is, logical, deductive, or otherwise, the warning simply is that when it comes to the unexplainable it may not be a process that is one hundred percent perfect. Two areas often find themselves in the middle of what isn’t logical. The first is relationships, the second miracles.
Divine intervention shows itself in two ways. The obvious miracle, rare, usually with a limited number of witnesses, physical profound, doesn’t make sense to someone with deductive reasoning. One cannot readily identify the “reason” for the miracle. There is no direct “cause”, catalyst, or accelerator. The sequence seems to defy logic and logical thinking. Clearly we rarely describe events that are logical as miracles but I think you get my point.
The second type of Divine working is unseen and known initially to only the one involved. How do you explain a conviction of belief? Is it logical for individuals to hold onto their principles, values and priorities at the cost of immediate happiness, self satisfaction, or even worldly reward?
Recently friends reached out to someone they knew when she was in trouble. It wasn’t logical, it just was. Logically one could assume that in order to help you had to be part of situation. The idea of helping someone in distress isn’t always logical unless one holds the principles of active compassion close to their heart.
When confronted with a difficult question, essentially being asked to explain a miracle, “his parents said, ‘Ask him. He's a grown man.’” (John 9.23) They didn’t know, couldn’t explain, and were not ready to express their faith.
Yet there is a solution to the situational blindness we often find. What if there was a life actively compassionate, fully and openly transparent; miracles within and without on full display? What if this life was yours or mine? Imagine a world with Divinity on display! I can see hope, alive, growing.
