Maybe you are suffering from an illness that the doctors say cannot be cured. Maybe no matter how hard you work, you canít seem to make enough money to pay your bills or provide for your family. Or maybe you have suffered a great loss that only a miracle could repair.
There are people that go through their whole life living paycheck to paycheck, waiting for a chance to get that job they always wanted. There are people that live in sickness, just waiting for their last breath, thinking that there is no other alternative. What most of us donít realize is that we donít have to live with that need. God has called us to live a life of increase, a life that is blessed in all areas. Within an intimate relationship with God, there is nothing to great to ask for. No matter how impossible your situation may seem, in an instant it can be turned around.
Jesus turned water into wine, he made blind eyes see, he made crippled legs walk, he made lepers whole. He even raised people from the dead. Out of His own lips, he ordered the disciples to do the same:
Matthew 10:8- Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely you give.
Mark 11:23 (NIV)- "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.Ē
Thousands of years ago, miracles were recorded, miracles that were not only from the hand of Jesus, but of His people. What most of us neglect to believe is that we are STILL living in a day of miracles. Godís power is still alive and moving all over the world. He didnít pour out his power just for the apostles and disciples. Miracles were not meant to end with the New Testament. That power was meant TODAY, for all those who believe. The anointing hasnít gone anywhere. We have just ceased to believe in it.
There are prayer warriors spread out around the world that are still calling on the name of Jesus to heal the sick, mend broken relationships, and open doors to a prosperous life. And God is still answering the cries of His people. Why should you feel unworthy to expect the same? You are a child of God, and that power is in YOU. All you have to do is believe what the Word promises:
Ephesians 3:20 (The Message Bible)- God can do anything, you know--far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
You will never be perfect enough, or sinless enough. That is not a requirement from God. The requirement is your faith. All you have to do is ask and receive, according to Godís will, and there is blessing that He is waiting to pour all over your life, but He wants you to take the first step.
I challenge you today to make a choice. You have the choice to live without pain, fear, and lack. That is the kind of life that God wants for you. It may be scary, as we are all afraid of failure, but know that God does not fail, and He has not called us to fail. Dive into the Word of God, and read the promises that he has given us to use TODAY, not thousands of years ago. You have the power, just step out and use it. Miracles can be used through you. Just trust in Him.
