I was tossing around a topic to write on today, some very nice ideas came to mind, and then I received an email that redirected my focus. The featured article in her newsletter is entitled “Forget About Miracles” by having an opening line of “Whatever the case may be, you can stop praying for a miracle. They just don’t happen. A number of you think you’ve heard about miraculous events or people recovering from treacherous circumstances but it’s an illusion.”
What a disheartening comment to produce, to tell individuals who God doesn’t do miracles today. Sounds if you ask me like someone may be without the faith arena, the Bible tells us that there are miracles to those who believe. So how can one explain the healing in my body 15 years ago of cervical cancer? Was this just an illusion? How about Amanda who was a top risk pregnancy, delivered twins and slipped in to a comma, suffered from heart failure and after family & friends began praying Amanda came home to improve her children. Is this not a miracle? Is this just an illusion?
In a period as we are in today it is essential or even crucial to possess faith and think that God in heaven can perform miracles in lives. Perhaps you have focused on how the following bill would be paid and somehow the money is there? Perhaps you have entered into a predicament that you should not have survived? Perhaps you have seen someone healed or been healed yourself a course in miracles podcasts each time a doctor told you there is no chance or cure? The Bible tells us we as believers have the ability to do miracles, so is the author of this article stated earlier saying that God’s word the Bible is wrong? This kind of foolish and deceptive statement to be said by someone in this time as this. Have you been being out of stock to “other” thinking or as we call it stinkin thinkin?
In a period such as for example we are residing in today it is essential to cling onto the truth that is exactly the same yesterday, today and tomorrow…God’s word…AKA The Bible. The Bible warns us about false teachings in many verses like in 1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have originates from God. For there are numerous false prophets in the world.” NLT
We are also told that by faith we could do anything; Matthew 17:20 “So Jesus said in their mind, “Because of one’s unbelief; for assuredly, I say for you, when you yourself have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to the mountain,’Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you “.So what does your faith inform you? I challenge the convinced that miracles do not happen today, because if I believe in God, believe the Bible to be God’s words then I am unable to agree with the stinkin thinkin which our self-talk, bodywork or even magic is usually to be credited for the miracles happening everyday in lives across the world. Believe in items that are proven, believe in truth and release the false teachings and beliefs running through our lives such as for instance a flash flood of debris and trash. Stand on the building blocks of only truth…God’s Word, AKA The Bible and begin to believe in and experience miracles in your life today.
