You are a new creation!

My friend, I’m sure you’re familiar with the process that the caterpillar undergoes to become a butterfly. It’s one of nature’s most fascinating transformations.

Everything begins with a little larva that becomes a caterpillar... a caterpillar that forms a temporary home for itself. Seen from the outside, this home may appear to be a place where nothing happens. it’s almost a place of death, without movement, without noise... but not without life...

Several days pass and all of a sudden, life bursts forth and exits the cocoon! A pair of magnificent wings splits the sky and contributes to the beauty of creation.

Did you know that if someone artificially opens the cocoon to help the butterfly escape, it dies?

it’s this process of struggling to leave the chrysalis that allows the butterfly’s wings to become sturdy and strong so that it can face the natural elements like the wind and rain and everything else it will A Miracle Every Day

5

encounter over the course of its life. This key passage from the chrysalis is unavoidable and essential to the creature’s preparation. My friend, your chrysalis is God’s heart, His presence, His love. in the secret place, the Holy Spirit speaks to you, teaches you, and strengthens you. The lord is preparing you for an unlimited life of grace and strength, an existence marked by the imprint of His steps and the seal of His victory...

• His victory over death! (The bible, 1 corinthians 15:55-58)

• His victory over sickness! (The bible, isaiah 53:5)

• His victory over your troubles and fears! (The bible, Psalm 54:7)

• His victory over all that keeps you from living freely and happily!

It’s His victory that defines your future today! A Miracle Every Day

6

Your life has a purpose!

You have been created with a particular purpose and placed in this exact time period...to make history!

i believe that God wants to use you, His child, to touch and lift up this world from its ashes, to pull it out of the dust. He desires to breathe life into the “dry bones” of those around you, and He wants to use yoU to accomplish it!

you are the Father’s arms of love surrounding the co-worker who suffers in silence. you are the lord’s words lifting up a friend who does not yet know Jesus. you are the one God is sending to dry the tears spilled in secret, to cry with those who cry and encourage them to keep going forward.

i don’t know a single person who doesn’t need encouragement. All of us, at one moment or another, go through trials, sickness, suffering, betrayal, rejection...

Wherever you go, God accompanies you. His presence, His anointing, and His healing power are with you wherever you are! it’s not about you, your capacity to “do it’s about His Spirit in you.

A Miracle Every Day

7

you are absolutely unique and your way of testifying of God’s love to this world is too.

So don’t hold back...love, love, love!

Pray with me: “Father, I thank You that my life has purpose! I pray that it helps others find purpose in their lives today. Use me to change this world with Your love. In Jesus’s name, amen!”

A Miracle Every Day

The desert will bloom!

“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, will bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfort to her.” (The bible, Hosea 2:14)

The dictionary definition of the word “desert” is a barren place, ill-suited for life. Seen from this angle, the desert is not very appealing. And yet, God’s creation is full of beautiful surprises and rich with teachings.

When the ideal weather conditions come together, like rain, high temperatures, and humidity, the desert flourishes. My friend, are you going through the dry, scorching wind of the desert right now?

if so, what is your desert called? Depression... Divorce... Sickness... Solitude... Something else

Whatever its name, this desert will not be your tomb. it will not bury you. you will not die in the desert... you will live. yes, you will live and declare the works of the lord! (see The bible, Psalm 118:17) A Miracle Every Day

9

by faith, rise up with strength and declare: “God oh God of my deliverance! God, who gives me the victory, You are the One in whom I believe!”

Feel the latter rain (see The bible, Joel 2:23) on your face, receive His life inside of you.

Rise up and see...the desert is flourishing!

A Miracle Every Day

10

Have you been labeled?

Sometimes, because you were born in a certain place or into a certain family, you carry someone’s name, or just because you are different, people stick labels on you. This can have an enormous influence on our lives, defining and shaping us. We often hear people say, “I am useless,” “I’m not good at anything,” etc.

Have you been a victim of others labeling you? i would like to share with you several thoughts which, if you receive them, can change your life and

“unstick” this label!

1. you are not what others say you are. your new identity is this: you are a child of the Most High God, an heir, a friend of christ! 2. you have inestimable value. When God looks at you, He rejoices because He sees you like He sees His Son, Jesus. He sets His affection and all His joy on you!

3. your past does not determine your future. your sins have been forgiven! The condemnation that weighs heavy on you has been removed. God has a unique plan for your life! you are free to enter into this plan.

A Miracle Every Day

11

4. it’s not too late! in the bible, we see that God blessed Abraham and Sarah. They couldn’t have children, but they believed in the one who calls those things that are not as though they were! Declare this with faith: “I am God’s precious child, I have inestimable value, my past does not determine my future, and it’s not too late!”

A Miracle Every Day

12

God knows you personally

We can only marvel at the heart filled with grace and kindness that Jesus has for each one of us...

When i started “A Miracle Every Day,” it was in my heart to better know you and draw near to you, your needs, and also your suffering. As my daily email arrives in your inboxes, i receive testimonies that call for great prayer support. reading your emails allows me to meet you but also to encourage you with what the lord puts on my heart. We all have our journeys, our paths, and they aren’t always simple. Sometimes, we experience particularly difficult times...

“A Miracle Every Day” comes and says, “Hold on, Jesus is with you!” you as readers are increasing more and more in numbers and with us all, the sun never sets on the group we form! The family of “A Miracle Every Day” extends from canada to china, Madagascar to india, Haiti to France, and now to the United States and the English-speaking world! i am amazed to see the incredible divine connections made and how much they bring encouragement to people’s lives. i invite you to read several testimonies to encourage you to “keep going!”

A Miracle Every Day

13

• “I sent you my prayer request. And it came to pass! When I got home, my oldest daughter that had so needed work just received a job with a 6-month contract! We are overjoyed!”

• “My wife was pregnant and suffering. Those who saw her didn’t believe she would survive giving birth. I was in the deepest depression I had ever experienced, but one morning, I read ‘A Miracle Every Day’ and found the strength to continue to believe and be confident in God. I simply repeated these words that King David wrote: “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life (The Bible, Psalm 23:6) and declared, ‘let this happen in my home!’ God took action, my wife gave birth to a beautiful little girl, and we named her Joviale. She and her mother are both in good health!”

• “‘A Miracle Every Day’ saved me from discouragement and suicide. The first time I received ‘A Miracle Every Day,’ it was 1 a.m. in Quebec and I was sad and discouraged. I was afraid and I didn’t want to see another tomorrow. I didn’t stop praying and I got a notification on my phone with a message from Éric Célérier. The message said, “God is faithful. He is going to lift you up, dry your tears.” There is one thing I’m certain about: ‘A Miracle Every Day’ isn’t the work of a man or men but the work of the Holy Spirit using a man.”

A Miracle Every Day

14

• “My miracles began with an instantaneous healing. Since then, my life and my children’s lives have been full of blessings, day after day. I passed an exam that I had previously failed four times. In faith, I sent out application letters everywhere. Then, I received a letter from a company that invited me for a job interview. I prepared with the Lord’s help and went in confidence. This was not an ordinary interview they presented the whole business to me. Then, I received the phone call that I had been hired! How could I not shout with joy? God is great and His works are magnificent.”

• “I am a single immigrant mother of two children. Without family or friends around me, I often fall into despair when faced with the challenges of life. ‘A Miracle Every Day’ is this tap on the back, this reminder that I am loved, which is something I need every day!”

• “Discouragement has left. My faith has quadrupled! I have concluded that what happens or doesn’t happen to me has no power before the One in whom I believe. No one has recognized my work for thirty years, but I just received an honorary PhD from an American university that I didn’t know. It’s a miracle from God!”

A Miracle Every Day

15

i bless the lord for these precious testimonies and give Him all the glory. i pray that He continues to guide me and give me, each day, this word that saves, encourages, and lifts His children up. you are a magnificent creation of God, my friend! your Father in heaven loves you and i love you as well with the love of the lord. Don’t hesitate to turn to Him with all your needs.

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (The bible, Hebrews 4:16) A Miracle Every Day

16

Forgiving again

Forgiving AGAIN? What is this, a new doctrine?

Actually, it’s not! it’s one of Jesus’s teachings that is really important for us to understand.

The other day, one of my friends was talking with me about a person who had really hurt me in the past by publicly slandering me on the internet. All of a sudden, even though i had already forgiven this person from the bottom of my heart and wished the person the very best, feelings from the past popped right back up. i was annoyed and angry, at the very least internally. i wanted to take action, get vengeance. but God is clear: vengeance is His, not ours...

Fortunately, God taught me an important truth. We have to forgive, and then forgive again. one day, Peter, one of Jesus’s disciples, approached his Master. He likely wanted to impress Him so he asked, ‘“lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and i forgive him? Up to seven times?”’ i think Peter tried his best, but Jesus’s response was surprising: 490 times! (See The bible, Matthew 18:21-22)

A Miracle Every Day

17

is it possible that someone could hurt us 490 times? it’s possible, though unlikely. yet, if we think about how someone hurt us dozens, maybe hundreds of times per day or even 7 times a day, for 70 days in a row

(490) unfortunately, this could definitely happen. i believe that Jesus is teaching us that when these memories come back to haunt us, we need to forgive... actually, forgive again. This forgiveness is a choice, and staying in forgiveness is a choice as well. i made this choice concerning this person who had hurt me. i re-forgave the same person, not because of some new wrong done to me, but because the original wrong hurt again.

Take heart! i’m just like you...you’re not alone in needing to forgive again! Declare with me: “Lord, the memories have come up again, and right now, I choose to re-forgive that person who hurt me. I release him/her to You, and I ask You to remove any lingering pain or bitterness from my heart. I choose Your freedom today! In Jesus’s name, amen.”

A Miracle Every Day

Let the fragrance of your

worship rise!

My friend, I love to listen to worship and praise songs. I thank God for all the amazing Christian worship bands and leaders. Many composers have written incredibly beautiful songs for the glory of God, and it is good to join in with these songs and worship Him. yet, there is nothing like the words you bring to God in your unique and personal way. Nothing can replace the fragrance of your praise! The Father’s heart yearns to hear your voice, the song rising from your heart. like cory Asbury, a wonderful worship leader, sings in one of his songs,

“No one else can love you like i love you, lord. ‘cuz i was made unique in your heart. i was made to bring you joy!”

This morning, heaven lends an ear to your voice. Heaven attentively waits for a new song, a song straight from your heart. The bible encourages us...

“Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful. Praise the Lord with the harp; make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings. Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy.” (The bible, Psalm 33:1-3)

A Miracle Every Day

19

Today, bring a new song, a new melody even here and now! let it ring forth! Pour out the fragrance of your worship at the lord’s feet. And when you’re not in a place where you can sing aloud, may your heart continue to sing... let worship remain the “background music” of your life today.

Let the fragrance of your worship rise!

A Miracle Every Day

20

Your attitude determines your

altitude!

Today, we’re going to take a look at verse 6 of Psalm 27, a verse of faith and action.

“And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.” (The bible, Psalm 27:6) As Zig Ziglar said, “your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” you can sense the extent to which David demonstrates this exemplary type of attitude in this verse.

• He believes and by faith already visualizes his head being lifted up above his surrounding enemies. He no longer sees his enemies. He sees God lifting him up, blessing him, restoring him, rewarding him!

• He puts himself in the future. i will offer... i will sing... i will praise... his future days are assured. He knows that God is going to raise him up.

• He already begins to thank God for what will be given to him. Already his heart and mouth are full of praises!

A Miracle Every Day

21

you cannot choose the circumstances that happen to you, but you can decide how to respond to them! choose the attitude that will allow you to rise above the storm, the clouds, and the turbulence. remember that above the clouds, the sky is still blue!

Choose today the right attitude that will determine your altitude!

A Miracle Every Day

22

All things are possible!

When he signed one of his books for me, Father Pedro, who started an incredible ministry with the street children of Madagascar and is considered to be the country’s “Mother Teresa,” wrote, “All things are possible to him who believes.” (The bible, Mark 9:23) Imagine a city with schools, stadiums, enormous venues, churches...all of this in what used to be the poorest neighborhood in Madagascar, near one of the largest landfills in the world, where thousands of children used to sort through trash just to survive. it is there, by faith, that a man who was very sick (with malaria and 7 parasites) and nearly ready to leave the island and return to his native country, Argentina, began to take in these children. For 27 years now, Father Pedro has tirelessly received, provided for, and shown the love of God to thousands of children and families. He believed that all things are possible to him who believes and that nothing is impossible for God! A Miracle Every Day

23

He believed when everything was telling him it was impossible. He believed when he was sick and weak. He believed when the politicians weren’t supporting him. He believed when his church did not come alongside him.

When we believe, the impossible becomes possible.

My friend, because you believe, you also will see the impossible become possible!

A Miracle Every Day

24

Let not your heart be troubled

Jesus declares, “‘Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’” (The bible, John 14:27)

Are your thoughts troubled? Are things twisting and turning in your head? Perhaps an internal alarm seems to be going off as your agitated mind searches for a solution.

Jesus says to you today, let not your heart be troubled.

“‘I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’”

(The bible, Matthew 28:20)

“‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.’”

(The bible, Matthew 28:18)

let Jesus take care of your struggles. He said, “‘Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.’”

(The bible, Matthew 11:28)

This is my prayer for you today.

A Miracle Every Day

25

Don’t compare yourself to

others any longer...

Someone once said, “If you have a tendency to compare yourself to others, it’s time to slam the door on those thoughts!” i would like to help you to slam that door shut today! Jesus once told the story of a man who loved to compare himself to others. He prayed like this: “I thank You that I am not like other men.” He loved to compare himself because he believed his religiosity made him superior. What a mistake! Jesus said that this man went back to his house like he came, unforgiven, unjustified. (See The bible, luke 18:11) Many people struggle by comparing themselves to others, thinking others are “better” than they are. Men and women alike look at magazines with photoshopped pictures and then put themselves down. They see themselves as ugly, too fat, etc. They also look at other people’s successes and say to themselves, “Why don’t i measure up like they do?” comparing yourself to people you don’t know, whose pictures were retouched is this really helpful? in all honesty, does this help or harm you? A Miracle Every Day

26

learn instead to see yourself as God sees you! He created you; He desired your existence. He made you unique, with special gifts. you have infinite value in His eyes. He loves you passionately. you are a jewel, a precious pearl, a priceless treasure. He gave everything for you, even His own life on the cross.

Today, He says to you, “I love you! You are My

child. I’m blessing and helping you.”

comparing yourself to others won’t help you. but realizing that you have everything in christ Jesus can change your life forever!

A Miracle Every Day

27

God justifies you!

“Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.”

(The bible, romans 8:33)

I really enjoy watching the sunrise. The sky leaves its nocturnal cloak behind and dons itself in light... darkness is engulfed by the light. Today, the sun of justice is rising on your life, my friend. christ is liberating you...

• From the shame of your past

• From the words of death that were spoken to you

• From the words of condemnation that haunt your thoughts. My friend, christ liberates you and His voice is stronger than the voice of the accuser of your soul! This means that...

• Shame has no hold on you

• your past is not the authority

• you are washed clean, white as snow, purified

• God is the one who executes justice!

Don’t let yourself be torn down by accusations, rumors, lies...This morning, while all creation awakens, the sun of justice is rising on your life, my friend!

A Miracle Every Day

28

You are a diamond

The diamond is king among the precious stones. It is the most researched and the most appreciated of all the gems because of its rareness and beauty. Yet, this magnificent jewel looks like a coarse, common rock when it is first extracted.

Time, attention, and the skill of a real expert are needed for the stone to become this exceptional gem.

My friend, you are this diamond! you are this precious stone, this exceptional gem called to reflect the glory of its creator. God uses time and the circumstances of your life to shape you. He takes the time to carve you so that you become the person He’s calling you to be. Thus, what appears to be a trial, an obstacle, or a delay at first glance is actually a tool in the lord’s hands!

My friend, you are this diamond ready to shine in

dazzling light for the glory of God!

A Miracle Every Day

29

Love is the ultimate measure

of success

Jesus said it is by your love for each other that the world will know that you are His disciples. (see The bible, John 13:35) The society we live in measures the success of people and situations by their performance and efficiency...

However, i believe that the lord offers us different criteria:

• The quality of relationships

• The love we give to others

• The care and attention we bring to our families and friends our God is the ultimate God of relationships. consider this for a moment... when He created humanity, He created one man and one woman. because His power is unlimited, He could have instantaneously created nations, just by speaking it out!

Why didn’t He? What’s even more astonishing is that God said His creation was very good, meaning that it was completed and everything was perfect!

A Miracle Every Day

30

Jesus loves you in a unique, personal way. He doesn’t see you as lost in the crowd; on the contrary, His gaze perceives in you everything that makes you distinct and an individual.

God invites you to make Jesus your model to love,

act, and speak like Him!

A Miracle Every Day

31

The cloud is coming...

“Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, ‘There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!’ So he said, ‘Go up, say to Ahab,

‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’”

(The bible, 1 kings 18:44)

The Bible tells us that God’s answer to one of the worst droughts in Israel’s history was a cloud not bigger than someone’s palm. A tiny cloud, but a huge potential

Are you facing a drought emotionally, spiritually, physically, professionally, or relationally right now?

God is sending His cloud. it may not be very big or imposing. Perhaps it won’t be something that grabs people’s attention.

Today, i invite you to trust Him... to not expect God’s “how” (which may not be what you have imagined) but rather, to place your expectation in the lord Himself.

A Miracle Every Day

32

And yes, as surprising as it might seem, the lord uses little things to pull us out of situations that are beyond us...

• Moses had a staff to save an entire people

(see The bible, Exodus 4:2-3)

• Goliath was conquered by a shepherd and his smooth stones

(see The bible, 1 Samuel 17:40-50)

• The widow received what she needed to pay her debts and live thanks to a bit of oil

(see The bible, 2 kings 4:1-7)

• The Savior of the world came... in the form of a little baby

(see The bible, luke 2:10-13)

The power of the solution is not in its size, but in the might of the one who brings it about in your life!

A Miracle Every Day

33

Don’t apologize for being

alive!

The other day I heard someone say, “I’m sorry for being alive!” I was stunned and yet...

• Many people think that their lives are useless. They apologize for being alive. but God has a plan for their lives. He has plans of peace and a future for them! (see The bible, Jeremiah 29:11)

• Many people don’t like themselves. They apologize for being alive. but Jesus said that you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

(The bible, Matthew 19:19) isn’t that incredible? it’s the will of God that we love ourselves!

• Many were not told they had worth or value when they were children. instead, they were shamed with negative comments like, “you’re good for nothing,” “you can’t do anything,” “you’ll never succeed,”

“you’ll never amount to anything.” They apologize for being alive. but God says to them, “you are my beloved son/daughter in whom i am well pleased!” (see The bible, Matthew 3:17)

• Many are weak, afflicted with sickness or with situations that seem inextricable. They apologize for being alive. but the Almighty God says A Miracle Every Day

34

to them, “‘i will strengthen you, yes, i will help you, i will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’” (see The bible, isaiah 41:10)

• Many don’t fully live their lives in God and are ridden with guilt and shame. They apologize for being alive. but Jesus came that they may have abundant life. There is now no condemnation for those who are in christ Jesus. (see The bible, romans 8:1)

• Many compare themselves to others and feel that they’re less somehow less capable, less talented. They apologize for being alive. but God has made them unique people, people who are able to do valiantly! The bible says, “Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.”

(see The bible, Psalm 60:12)

• Many have been abused physically, morally, spiritually, and emotionally and lost confidence in themselves, others, and God. They apologize for being alive. but our Father God is full of affection for them. He longs to restore them! He will never leave them or forsake them. (See The bible, Joshua 1:5)

A Miracle Every Day

35

Did you see yourself in this list, my friend? if so, don’t apologize for being alive. God will heal and deliver you He wants the best for you! And if you encounter someone who seems to apologize for being alive, look at that person with love and encourage him/her because God has not said His final word!

Declare with me today: “Lord, I choose to never again apologize for being alive. I’m sorry for the times I already have. You created me! You love me and I believe You have a good plan for my life. No fear or shame can stop the promises You have made in my life! I choose hope, I choose life, I choose to forgive myself...and I choose to love myself. In Jesus’s name, amen!” A Miracle Every Day

36

God does miracles!

Today, I’d like to share with you a few more of the many testimonies I’ve received. I pray that they help you believe that nothing is impossible for God. All things are possible for him who believes! Enjoy...

• “I received a miracle when you wrote the email “Faith it’s all I have!” That morning, I prayed for my sister-in-law, Rama, who had Lyell’s Syndrome. There was nothing that anyone could do to save her because at that moment in Gabon, where she lives, the hospitals were on strike. And more, there simply was no remedy to save her. But my God saved her. Today, she is in good health and has returned to her home. I want to give all the glory to Jesus!”

• “While reading ‘A Miracle Every Day,’ the Holy Spirit spoke to me about spiritual victories. So I started to proclaim the Word of God with authority over the life of my brother, who does not know the Lord and has been struggling in his business and personal finances for years. He was at the point where he often spoke of committing suicide because of the creditors’ harassment and the extent of his legal problems. I received good news from my brother on the phone he said that over the previous two weeks, his business had taken off again and his customers had returned. I thus was able to testify to him that Jesus had intervened!”

A Miracle Every Day

37

• “I was surrounded by atheists who loved to incite arguments and stir things up. Whenever I tried to testify of Jesus Christ or what God has done in my life, they would sneer or even roar with laughter. I had had enough. I started to give them short summaries of ‘A Miracle Every Day’ and little by little, their interest was finally piqued and they began to listen. It’s through this that the Word of God started speaking to them. And it’s only getting better and better... glory to God!”

• “I needed money this past Saturday before noon for a loan payment. I had absolutely nothing and I remembered your testimony about the parking place. I said to the Lord, ‘Pastor Eric Célérier believed and You gave him a parking place and I’ve heard many others’ testimonies as well. I have no one to rely on, no one to help me my eyes are on You, Lord, and I know that You are able to give me this money.’ I believed and counted on God with all my strength and He provided. Hallelujah! He gave me the money and even more before my deadline.”

• “When I began to receive and read ‘A Miracle Every Day,’ I was single. It had been years that I had prayed and asked God for a husband with whom I could serve Him. I can tell you that the Lord is faithful. He turned my request into a reality I am now married! What an incredible day. A thousand thanks to our marvelous, all-powerful God!” A
