Today, when I awoke to the sound of the abundance of rain, I remembered the God of Miracles can change anything. If only we would believe and have faith in Him.
One time I waited outside the Anaheim Convention Center all night to get into a church service the next morning. I had gone to my hotel room after the previous night’s meeting to shower and change clothes.
Having been up until midnight, it was a bit of a challenge to stay awake. At some point, I sat down with my back against a pillar. Taking a hint from Jacob’s story (Gen 28:18), I declared: “Lord, this pillar of stone is going to be like a pillow for my head.” And, then, I laid against the pillar and slept like a baby for hours.
That night, I learned something about how miracles work. God didn’t split the skies and send an angel from Heaven with a “My pillow.” No. The God of Miracles responded to the faith I had in Him.
God’s Word says, “the just shall live by his faith.” This scripture tells me three things:
I think of Elijah through whom the God of Miracles worked many miracles. In 1 Kings 17, there was a drought in Israel. God told Elijah to go to a certain widow’s house, and she would provide for him.
When Elijah got there, he asked the widow for a piece of bread. The widow said she didn’t have any bread. She only had a handful of flour in a bin and a little oil in a jar.
Elijah then told the widow to use the flour and oil to make him a small cake first. After that, she could make cakes for herself and her son.
Then Elijah declared: “For thus says the LORD God of Israel: The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the LORD sends rain on the earth” (1 Ki 17:14].
And it was so. The miracle in the widow’s house took place when Elijah proclaimed the Word of the God of Miracles.
You see, God’s Word is living and powerful (Heb 4:12) because it transports His breath and life. Thus, inherent in God’s Word is miracle-working, life-giving, situation-changing power. And, God always works in conjunction with His Word.
Today, I say, there is a miracle in your mouth!
Every time you declare, decree, and proclaim God’s Word in faith over every situation, you open the door to miraculous outcomes, including angels ministering on your (our) behalf. [Ps 103:20; Heb 1:7, 14]
Will you simply believe and have faith in God?
