Do you believe God for miracles in your life? Not all miracles are as big as the one pictured here when a young and disabled Forrest Gump sheds his braces and runs from chasing bullies.
If you want to see more miracles in your life, let's look at some basic principles that will help you see them.
Faithful prayer often precedes miracles. If you believe God for his promises, pray that God will show you a miracle, believe that HE will and HE WILL. James 1:6
"But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind."
Praying God's word back to him is one way to pray with authority. Pray scripture back to God. In this way you are reminding God of his promise when you pray. Find a scripture that will reinforce your prayer and watch what happens. If you need healing, look for healing scriptures. Remind God that He is the Great Physician and Healer by your prayers. Remind him with scripture that he will fight battles for you.
Pray that God will open your eyes to see what He is up to. Many miracles happen that we take as coincidences instead of giving God credit for them. There are no coincidences, only God-Incidences.
Be careful not to expect your miracle to look a certain way. God's ways are very different than ours, so watch to see what and how he intervenes in your life this week. You may be surprised!
Big or little when God intervenes it a miracle. Angus Buchan reminds us that the condition of a miracle is difficulty, but the condition of a great miracle is impossibility. When something that we think is unlikely or impossible happens, you better believe God was involved!
God LOVES when we ask for miracles because it gives him an opportunity to show you and others that he is alive, mighty powerful and loving. So, there is no small prayer request. You are not bothering God with these requests. God stands ready for people to ask Him to help. Matthew 7:7 says 7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."
