Once upon a time a couple of guys named Paul and Barnabas traveled to a city called Lystra. They came across a crippled man. This guy was born crippled, he had never walked a day in his life. Paul told the guy to stand up; which is a really mean thing to say to a crippled person. And there certainly would’ve been ballyhoo and protests against Paul, but people were distracted by the fact that the crippled dude sprang up and began to walk around. Everyone started shouting “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men! Zeus and Hermes are amongst us!” And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. But Barnabas and Paul said, “Why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. In past generations He allowed all the nations to walk in their own ways. Yet He did not leave Himself without witness, for He did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.”

So, the next time you encounter men performing miracles, just calm down and think about the fact that God has already given you a witness of His power and mercy —> the rain.
