And, because it is His way, in blessing my friend, He also blessed me. Blessed me with understanding about who He is--that He *IS* a God of miracles and that it is by faith that these miracles come to pass.
For behold, I am God; and I am a God of miracles; and I will show unto the world that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and I work not among the children of men save it be according to their faith. -- 2 Nephi 27:23Seeing this miracle in my friend's life has also confirmed to me that God really does want to bless us--that He even delights to work miracles in our lives.
Hearken and hear, O ye my people, saith the Lord and your God, ye whom I delight to bless with the greatest of all blessings, ye that hear me.... -- D&C 41:1
