(John 2:9; Exodus 14:21; Joshua 6:20; John 11:43)
The very first miracle Jesus performed was when He
turned the water into wine at the wedding feast in Cana of Galilee. I know
many who reject the Bible laugh at the miracles recorded in God's Word.
They refuse to believe the Red Sea actually parted, or the walls of Jericho
were brought down with some trumpets and shouting, or that Jesus raised
Lazarus from the dead, or any number of miracles that are documented in the
Bible. Even if you believe that these Biblical miracles occurred, it still
begs the question, do miracles exist today?
Let me end any drama and answer that question right up front...YES!!! I
consider myself to be incredibly blessed if for no other reason, I get to
come to the Liveprayer office every day and see God working miracles in
people's lives. People being healed, marriages restored, financial needs
met, are just a few of the miracles I see on a daily basis. Every single
day I personally witness hundreds of examples of God working miracles in the
lives of real people.
The Bible teaches us that God is no respecter of persons. That simply means
what God has done for someone else He will do for you. The fact is, God is
working miracles in people's lives every day, and that includes people just
like you! I can guarantee you there have been numerous times in your life
when God has stepped in and done something only He could have done. There
is no other logical explanation other than "God did it!" That my friend is
what a miracle is. It is God doing what only God can do!
Most people don't even realize how many miracles God works in their life
because they don't fully comprehend that some of the things God does for
them, are things only God could do for them! If you take a moment and think
back on different trials that you have had to face in your life, and how God
stepped in and met your need, that my friend is a MIRACLE! You can't
manufacture a miracle, you can't force a miracle to happen, a miracle is
something that God and only God can do in accordance with His sovereign
YOU CAN'T BUY MIRACLES EITHER! Remember Simon the Sorcerer in the Book
of Acts? God's power is not for sale, however, it is available to those who
seek it to build His Kingdom. Additionally, miracles of God can't be
marketed like a box of cereal. They don't occur at a pre-determined time
and place or happen like turning on a light switch, but they happen
sovereignly as God sees fit.
Let me share this with you today. When God can take your problems and turn
them into blessings, that is a miracle. Only God can take your problems and
turn them into blessings. I assure you today that taking problems and
turning them into blessings is every much a miracle as when Jesus turned the
water into wine! I can think back on my life, I know you can think back on
your life, how we were facing some major issue. God didn't just help us get
victory over whatever that issue was, but He turned our problem into a
blessing. THAT IS A MIRACLE ONLY GOD COULD PERFORM!!!
I love you and care about you so much. I know today many who are reading
this are looking for God to perform a miracle in their life and
circumstances. You are at a place where ONLY GOD can help you. The Bible
tells us that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD! I want you to hear that
powerful truth from God's Word today, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD! Now
is not the time for despair but for hope. Now is not the time for sorrow
but for joy. Our God is still a miracle working God in the year 2006!!!
I will be praying for you today. Praying specifically for the miracle that
you need in your life. No matter how great or small your need may be, God
can step in and work the miracle that you are looking for today. Whether it
is for healing in your body, the restoration of your marriage or another
relationship, a financial need to be met, or perhaps it is for a job, or a
car, or something at school. No matter what your need is, no mater how
great or how small that need may be, God is able to step in and do what
nobody else can do and meet your need.
Sadly, so many scoff at the idea of God working miracles. The truth is,
their very life is a miracle. The Bible says it rains on the just and the
unjust, and likewise God works miracles in the lives of His children as well
as the lives of those who have rejected Him. I pray today that those who
deny the Lord, who are the recipients of His miracle-working power, will
fall to their knees and acknowledge God for who He is and put their hope and
faith in Jesus Christ.
Yes, the Bible is full of many great miracles, but God is still performing
miracles today. God's mercy and grace and miracle-working power is
available to everyone. No matter where you are today, no matter what you
may be facing, open your heart to the Lord and call on His name. I will be
praying with you and for you to see the miracle-working hand of God in your
Do miracles still exist today? ABSOLUTELY. God is the same yesterday,
today, and forever!!! I am praying for you today and for the miracle you
