I was tossing around a topic to write on today, some great ideas came to mind, and then I received a contact that redirected my focus. The featured article in her newsletter is entitled “Forget About Miracles” with an opening line of “Whatever the case might be, you can stop praying for a miracle. They only don’t happen. A few of you believe you’ve heard of miraculous events or people coping with treacherous circumstances but it’s an illusion.”
What a disheartening comment to make, to inform individuals who God doesn’t do miracles today. Sounds in my experience like someone might be without the faith arena, the Bible tells us that there are miracles to the ones that believe. So how can one explain the healing in my own body 15 years back of cervical cancer? Was this just an illusion? What about Amanda who was simply a higher 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 magic? Is this just an illusion?
In a period as we’re in today it is important or even crucial to possess faith and think that God in heaven is able to do miracles in lives. Have you ever worried about how another bill would be paid and somehow the money will there be? Have you ever entered into a situation that you shouldn’t have survived? Have you ever seen someone healed or been healed yourself a course in miracles podcasts whenever a doctor told you there was no chance or cure? The Bible tells us we as believers have the power to execute miracles, so is the writer of the content stated earlier saying that God’s word the Bible is wrong? This kind of foolish and deceptive statement to be said by someone in such a time as this. Have you been being sold-out to “other” thinking or once we call it stinkin thinkin?
In a period such as for instance we’re surviving in today it’s imperative to cling onto the reality that is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow…God’s word…AKA The Bible. The Bible warns us about false teachings in several verses for instance in 1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, don’t believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You have to test them to see if the spirit they’ve arises from God. For there are numerous false prophets in the world.” NLT
We’re also told that by faith we can do anything; Matthew 17:20 “So Jesus said in their mind, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say for you, when you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to the mountain,’Move from here to there,’ and it’ll move; and nothing will be impossible for you personally “.Just what exactly does your faith let you know? I challenge the thinking that miracles don’t happen today, because if I rely on God, believe the Bible to be God’s words then I can’t buy into the stinkin thinkin our self-talk, bodywork or even magic is usually to be credited for the miracles happening everyday in lives across the world. Believe in issues that are proven, rely on truth and release the false teachings and beliefs running through our lives such as a flash flood of debris and trash. Stand on the inspiration of only truth…God’s Word, AKA The Bible and begin to trust in and experience miracles in your life today.
