The dictionary definition of a miracle – “A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is considered to be divine”. Words in the bible translated “miracle” many times are translated ‘signs”. A sign was a supernatural happening that would point those who see it to God. Jesus performed many miracles, signs, and wonders but He never took credit for them saying He only did what He saw the Father doing, “Jesus gave them this answer: “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” (John 5:19). We, as God’s children can do the same things.
Do we believe in miracles? Do we: Believe God created everything with His word? Believe the Red Sea parted? Believe Sarah had a baby when she was ninety and Abraham was 100? Believe Jesus walked on water, turned water to wine, fed 5000 with a boy’s lunch, healed them all, raised Lazarus from the dead, rose from the dead himself? Of course we do! Has anything changed since then? “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8). Miracles still happen today.
Here are some important keys to receiving your miracle: Ask and keep on asking, be persistent. Stand on the word of God, “with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26). Believe and keep on believing, “All things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23). Have faith; faith in what God has said in His word. He wants the best for His own. Put your faith into action, “Faith without works is dead”, (James 2:26). Refuse to doubt, “.. he must believe and not doubt.. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord;” (James 1:6-7). Ask others to pray with you. “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19). Expect your miracle. Jesus couldn’t do much in His hometown because the people didn’t expect the hometown boy to do much, “He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.” (Mark 6:5-6). Today, you can begin receiving your miracle. Comment if you have received a miracle.
