Scripture Reading: Hebrews 13:5-6
Let’s start today’s reflection with this declaration: “You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.”(Psalm 77:14). Miracles are the awesome works of God, beyond human intervention, natural limitation and efforts. A Songwriter once wrote: “You deserve the glory and the honor, Lord, we lift our hands in worship, As we praise your Holy name. Chorus: For You are great, You do miracles so great, There is no one else like You, There is no one else like You.” Dear friends, I believe in a God of miracles, not just a God that did miracles in the past, but an ever miracle working God. I am a witness of God’s miraculous actions. I am convinced of it, it is not just a possibility, it is a reality. We have seen cases of miraculous healing after medical sciences said that all hope is lost. We are witnesses to the miracles of fruitfulness after years of barrenness that defiled medical solutions. Our God is still a miracle working God.
Dear friends in Christ, “You do not have because you do not ask” (James 4:2). If we truly believe that the Bible means what it says, we will receive what we ask, since it is the will of God. What is that you need? What victory? What healing or provision? What protection, restoration or redemption? What glory and holiness? Why then do we not ask? What prevents us? Can’t God do it again? “Come boldly to the throne of grace,” the Bible tells us, “that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16).
The preparation is done, our answer is waiting, if only we come boldly and ask! The only precondition or criteria to receive our miracle or answer to our requests is FAITH (unwavering Faith). We must believe! “Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mark 11:24). “Let him ask in faith, with no doubting” (James 1:6). As a believer, I have watched in silent amazement as God raised the crippled, spared unborn children from certain death, restored financial fortunes, secured redemption, and healed countless people whose cases were written off.
Child of God, today you will do well to once again pray over your families and lives in an audacious manner. The promise to reverse negative circumstances is only guaranteed to those who pray. Hear this “Good evening br Jude, my name is Sis.N from Bodija, Ibadan, Oyo State of Nigeria. I want to testify to the glory of GOD, I HAVE BEEN HAVING BACK PAIN FOR SOME TIME NOW, On Tuesday it was very serious, after saying series of prayers the pain disappear, so yesterday night the Lord open my back and I saw office pins plenty of them, I was removing by myself and I woke up Praise the Lord I am healed”. Beloved the miraculous hand of God did it and He can do same for you if you believe and not lose heart” (Luke 18:1). These are the words of Jesus. The words of our Lord provide a wonderful assurance to those who will take the time to be diligent in prayer. Prayer develops trust in the heart of the believer that God absolutely will perform what He has said. For the believer, all intimacy with God is borne out of trust that has been developed in times of prayer. Intimacy leads to faith and audacious praying. Faith and audacious (bold) prayer life produce the miraculous.
- O God I need a miracle in my life today (tell God the area where you need the miracle)
- O God, give me a miracle that will change the story of my life in the name of Jesus.
- Miracles that will remove every embarrassment in my life, manifest now in the name of Jesus
- Pray for all those whose lives can only be meaningful again except by God’s miraculous intervention
Exercise: Pray today for all members of the Daily Strength Family having health challenges that God’s miraculous Hand of healing will be upon them.
