Have you ever wondered if God is still in the miracle business? Scripture states, “And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles.”
I believe that God still performs miracles. God Inside the Fire is a true story of one obvious miracle. Joni Stelly has a remarkable gift of extraordinary spiritual insight and discernment. She also has incredible faith. So when she dreamed that she saw family friends Frank and Kathy running from a deadly fire, she did what she always did. She prayed.
Frank and Kathy aren’t believers but they have a deep friendship with Greg and Joni. Their mutual love and respect, combined with the prayers of the faithful, led to a miracle in the hills of San Diego County during the 2003 Cedar Fire.
Greg Stelly has written a remarkable chronicle of the Cedar Fire miracle. Greg’s writing is descriptive and flows naturally from scene to scene. The characters and their situations come to life on the pages of God Inside the Fire. I couldn’t put this book down once I began reading it, and I can’t stop recommending it to friends.
We can witness miracles, but we must have faith that miracles can occur. “For if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle among them; wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith” (Ether 12:12). Joni, Greg, Danielle and Juliette Stelly have faith. They acted on their faith by prayer. They witnessed a real miracle. Read God Inside the Fire and you’ll witness a miracle, too. Maybe next time you need a miracle you’ll have just a little more faith as a result of this remarkable story.
