The miracles of God, by God, for mankind's use are not all visible - measurable - understandable. The greatness of God and God's unknowable blessings upon us are so plentiful that we cannot count them. 

We oftentimes do not recognize God's intervention. We might glorify God if we see a miracle. "Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed" John 20:29 

Let's distill this thought to its very essence. God is pouring out His essence, being, self onto us and all creation. There has never been a time that God did not pour Himself out onto you, whether you were/are saved or not. But there will be a time when those who have not been born again will be lost forever. Until then God is pouring out His blessings on all of us. 

Note: It is easy to get caught up in the deterioration syndrome that comes with thinking about your problems, sicknesses, faults, past sins or indiscretions, current unfavorable conditions. If you wallow in worry your spiritual eyes will be blurred or even shut to what God is doing in your life altogether. Just because you can't see it does not mean it does not exist. Little by little start training your mind to think on the things of God and slowly the troubles of this world will wane and then disappear.  Don't think so? I thought you might say that. You are conditioned by your surroundings as well as the thoughts and actions of those around you. To operate with God Thinking you will have to find ways and find time to divert your thinking to better and higher thoughts; 
Thoughts that build up
Thoughts that heal
Thoughts that surrender your problems to God.
Thoughts that make molehills out of mountains
Start allowing God to talk and you listen.

The math is like this: The quantity of time (not the quality of time) you spend each day in the way you think provides an equal representation of the life you will live. In other words if the quantity of thoughts that you have are depressing and worrysome, fretful and conclude a disappointing end, is greater than the quantity of thoughts that are beautiful, full of pleasant surprise, godlike, simple and constructive, then you will be un-building from the place you could be. The same holds true if the quantity of thoughts that you have are beautiful, full of pleasant surprise, godlike, simple and constructive, then you will be building a strong foundation to the place you could be. 

I say quantity and not quality because in America there is an epidemic of people thinking that if they just give a little quantity time:
They can raise their kids
They can have a good marriage
They can build a vibrant business
They can become successful in a trade
It was never true. quantity time trumps quality time every time.

One more thing. Depending on where you think you are in this scenario it might be time to start un-learning a great many things."
