Sometimes we hear about terrible events: accidents, sickness, financial trouble; why do these things happen? Why do we have sin? Why do we have accidents? Because man rebelled against God. But God so loved you, He sent His Son into the world to break the power of the devil and set us free. We can’t always explain or understand the ways of God, but as with the man healed in John 9:25, “One thing I know: though I was blind, now I can see.”
Do you believe God can work a miracle in your life? All you have to do is say ‘Yes’ to His Will. But there is a big difference between knowing in your head and knowing in your heart. You cannot trust somebody you do not know. I want you to know in whom you have believed - and then God can work the miracle. ‘And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.’ (Romans 8.11, NLT)
Our God answers prayer - and He works miracles. I have seen every kind of miracle you can imagine: people born blind, God opens their eyes; broken backs are mended; cancers are healed; cripples get out of wheelchairs. - I’ve seen miracles that are not healing: financial provision; my own miraculous release from prison, and many others besides. I know these miracles will happen when I pray; I don’t have any question about it. It’s no different from knowing that every morning the sun will get out of bed and show itself at my window. God works miracles every day - but it’s for us to believe that He can, and will, in our lives. - It is in accordance to our faith.
Jesus has power, not just in heaven but on earth. Why do I pray ever day? Why do I pray so much? Because God is listening. He hears. He answers. Do you realise how much God loves you? Jesus said to the paralytic, “So that you may know I am the Son of God - that I am not lying or deceiving you; so that you may know the reality and truth - get up and walk!” God has given us this same power through the Holy Spirit.
When you are in distress; when nobody will help you; when you have nowhere to go; if you will call upon the Name of the Lord, He will help you. All it takes is faith as small as a mustard seed to move mountains. You don’t need to go to a pastor, prophet or teacher - some person of great renown and faith - you have enough faith to be saved, healed and delivered.
I want to show you how God can literally change your life today. As you read His Word and listen to His voice, you are being transformed into His image. The Bible teaches that we are being changed from glory to glory… for those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son (2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 8:29).
