I often share about my mother's healings and miracles she has experienced time and again throughout her eighty-five years of life. I sometimes forget myself how long she has waited between the healings and miracles she has received through faith and patience. Keep her in prayer. She is believing for another one right now. The trouble with a miracle is that you don't get one unless you really need one!
Both of our daughters had our first grandchildren in May seventeen days apart. They both shared that there was a moment during their labor that they thought for sure they were going to die. Then the very next moment they saw their miracle of new birth. They can both tell you that there was a whole lot of living in those long nine months before that miracle took place. And a whole lot of living to be done after their miracle arrived. For with their miracle came changing diapers, sleepless nights and no longer living for themselves. There is a popular song out titled, "A Baby Changes Everything!" I believe a miracle, a healing or a true prophetic word from the Lord will change everything about our lives to no longer live for ourselves but for the Lord.
HAVE WE DONE OUR HOMEWORK WITH THE PROPHETIC WORDS WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN GIVEN?
I sense we miss many times that still small voice that is drowned out by our excitement when God touches us. "By the way, I would like you to change some things in your life so you can keep your healing and miracle and to become more like Me." When we recieve a true prophetic word from the Lord I believe it will be awhile before we are ready for another one. There will be homework to do and some tests to take. "Until the word of the Lord came to Joseph, the word of the Lord tried him." Psalm 105:19. With Joseph's prophetic dream came alot of homework. His first assignment was how to handle being betrayed and thrown into a pit. His mid term test was 'how fast can you run from Potopher's wife?" After being falsely accused, his final exam was taken in prison. It took him many long years to finish it. One final question for extra credit was, 'how do you handle being overlooked when you help someone else get promoted to freedom?" After living out the right answer for two more years he received his diploma and graduated to the palace!
WE MUST REMEMBER WHAT GOD'S DREAM IS FOR US. HE IS DREAMING ABOUT US BEING CHANGED INTO THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF HIS SON, JESUS!
That is it! That is the real miracle and healing that He is working on for our lives with the backdrop of eternity in view. And sometimes God will forgo some healings, miracles and answered prayers to get us to that place where we cry out..."I surrender all! I just want you!" With more of Jesus in our lives our eyes are going to be opened more and more to behold the supernatural and the miraculous in the ordinary and practical things of daily living. If your heart is beating, that is a miracle! If you can see, that is a miracle! If you can breathe that is a miracle! Let's not miss God in the ordinary miracles that we take for granted every day. There's a whole lot of living going on!
Thank you for standing with us in these times of shaking. Your love and prayers keep us going forward as the Lord keeps opening doors for us. We continue to trust the Lord to meet the needs for our family and ministry. We pray you also will find God in your everyday life as He comes to where you are. Even the unpleasant things that you experience is not being wasted. It's that stuff of life that becomes the fertilizer for the supernatural to take place. Remember, Jesus used mud to heal the blind man. Naaman came up a muddy healed man out of the Jordan River. Jesus can use the mud in our lives for the supernatural to take place!
Don't miss out on life today!
