We can look back to the 40’s and 50’s.
What was the biggest sickness around for which many prayed? Polio
~ In 1953 the highest year on record, just short of 60,000 cases were reported.
~ In 1955, the vaccine was introduced and that number dropped to just under 14,000
~ By 1965 there were 100 cases, by 1970’s there were 10 and by 1994, it was declared eradicated in the Americas.
Do we believe that is a miracle of God? In 1953, people would have been praising God for this outcome.
But today, we take it for granted. We don’t give God the glory or credit for something he is clearly responsible for.
But it is a miracle.
