We all need a miracle at some point in our lives. A Miracle is that which is humanly impossible. It is the supernatural act of God and that which only God can fix. A miracle does not make any natural sense. It is that which suspends all the natural laws of the universe.
There were numerous instances in the bible when natural laws were suspended, and throughout the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, we can see instances of supernatural acts of God.
The children of Israel said to Moses, can God furnish a table in the wilderness? Yes, He can, and yes, He did! God provided Manna for the Israelites; He also provided meat. He struck the rock, and water gushed out; he also divided the sea so the Israelites could pass through, and He made the waters stand up like a heap! Unexplainable right? Yes, but He did it. All these acts beat all natural laws, and that is what we call a miracle.
The Bible is full of miraculous happenings, be encouraged and persuaded that the God who did miracles in the past is still the same God who can and who will do miracles now.
Elisha and the famine in Samaria (2 Kings 7:1-2)
Elisha prophesied a 24-hour miracle of abundance in Samaria during a severe famine. Naturally, going by the economics laws, there was no way that such a prophecy would come to pass. The officer of the king, an economist, couldn’t see how that prophecy would manifest even if God were to put a window in the heavens. Naturally, this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible. Though the officer did not believe, God bypassed everyone and fulfilled all that he had promised.
Abraham and Isaac on Mount Moriah (Genesis 22:1-19)
Abraham, in obedience to God, took his only son Isaac to sacrifice him on the mountain. On getting there, God had already planted a ram for the sacrifice in exchange for Isaac. How did the ram climb to the top of a two thousand feet mountain? That same mountain that took Abraham and Isaac 3 days to climb. By the last time I checked, rams don’t climb that high. For that ram to have been on Mount Moriah, there must have been a suspension of some natural laws. It was nothing but a miracle.
David and Goliath (1Samuel 17)
One of the most popular Sunday School stories is that of David and Goliath. How did 5 smooth stones in the hand of a 17-year-old shepherd boy bring down a giant? David was only 17 when he killed Goliath. There is no way in the natural that a 17-year-old civilian will kill a general in the Philistine army except by a supernatural act of God.
The miracle of the fish with the coin in its mouth (Matthew 17:24-27)
How did the coin get into the mouth of that fish and stayed there until Peter was ready to pay his tax? That is what we call the miracle of supernatural provision. God already knows our needs before the needs ever arise. And when the needs arise, He already made provision. The moment Jesus spoke the word to Peter, the coin made its way into the mouth of the fish.
Miracles are real, and they are still happening in our days. If we don’t experience them, it doesn’t mean they are not happening anymore. There are things we can do to experience the divine intervention of God, and below are some of them :
7 things to do when you need a miracle
- Remember God’s faithfulness in the past. If He has ever come through for you before, He will surely come through for you again. He is ever true and ever faithful. When David was about to face Goliath, he remembered how God delivered him from the bear and the lion. David drew on the strength of God’s faithfulness in previous victories, and he knew that if the bear and the lion died by his hands, Goliath would die too!
” For with God nothing will be impossible” Luke 1: 37
- Set your mind on the future promise, know that He would do that which he has promised. God is a fixer. He would fix it, and He will always make it good.”
”And being fully convinced that What He had promised He was also able to perform” Romans 4:21 ” I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass, I have purposed it; I will also do it ” Isaiah 46:11
- Find relevant scriptures that connect to that which you trust the Lord for and meditate on them until you receive a Rhema ( a revelation of truth ). God is always true to His words. Remind God of His promises; God’s words are yea and amen; God’s word will never fail; it will always accomplish its purpose.
”I am actively watching over My word to fulfill it. ” Jeremiah 1:12AMP
- Stay positive, don’t give in to doubt, believe in hope, against all hope, believe! Just like Abraham, He believed that He who had promised would also do it. Even though everything in the natural was against the promise, Abraham held on doggedly to the promise, and the Lord came through for him.
” Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised.” Hebrews 10:23KJV
- Maintain an atmosphere of worship. Worship connects us to God and paves the way for the miraculous to happen. Worship is a powerful weapon. Paul and Silas worshipped God in prison, and the prison doors flung open.
‘’ God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!”Psalm 149:6TPT
- Have faith in God! Faith comes by hearing the word. Spending time in God’s word will help to build our faith in Him. As you study and meditate on God’s word, let it build faith in you. Believe that the Lord can do the impossible and be expectant!
” But Jesus looked at them and said” With men, it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” Mark 10:27 NKJV
- Sow a seed. A seed can break any stronghold of limitation. I have a real-life experience of sowing seeds, and I can say that every breakthrough I have had can be traced to a seed. Life is a seed; we reap what we sow, we get what we give. Let’s give kindness and spread love; it will surely come back to us in several folds. That’s just a principle of life.
” They may weep as they go out carrying their seed to sow, but they will return with joyful laughter and shouting with gladness as they bring back armloads of blessing and a harvest overflowing.” Psalm 126:6 TPT
Miracles are real. I have been privileged to have seen the miraculous in certain areas of my life. Miracles of healings, divine provisions, success in examinations, career breakthroughs, uncommon open doors and the lists go on—all to the glory of God.
Miracles are not for special people; they are for those whosoever desire. The only requirement is to believe! God is still in the business of doing miracles. He specialises in last-minute miracles, and as we come near to the end of this peculiar year, God is still able to do the impossible; only believe, and you will receive!
If this has blessed you, please do not keep it to yourself; share it with others.
