I was tossing around a topic to write on today, some great ideas came to mind, and then I received an email that redirected my focus. The featured article in her newsletter is entitled “Forget About Miracles” with an opening line of “Whatever the case may be, you can stop praying for a miracle. They just don't happen. Some of you think you've heard of miraculous events or people recovering from treacherous circumstances but it's an illusion.”
What a disheartening comment to make, to tell people that God does not do miracles today. Sounds to me like someone may be lacking in the faith arena, the Bible tells us that there are miracles to those that believe. So how can one explain the healing in my body 15 years ago of cervical cancer? Was this just an illusion? What about Amanda who was a high risk pregnancy, delivered twins and slipped into a comma, suffered from heart failure and after family & friends began praying Amanda came home to raise her children. Is this not a miracle? Is this just an illusion?
In a time as we are in today it is important if not crucial to have faith and believe that God in heaven can perform miracles in lives. Have you ever worried about how the next bill would be paid and somehow the money is there? Have you ever entered into a situation that you should not have survived? Have you ever seen someone healed or been healed yourself when a doctor told you there was no chance or cure? The Bible tells us we as believers have the power to perform miracles, so is the author of the article mentioned above saying that God’s word the Bible is wrong? Such a foolish and deceptive statement to be said by someone in such a time as this. Are you being sold out to “other” thinking or as we call it stinkin thinkin?
In a time such as we are living in today it is crucial to cling onto the truth that is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow…God’s word…AKA The Bible. The Bible warns us about false teachings in many verses for example in 1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” NLT
We are also told that by faith we can do anything; Matthew 17:20 “So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you”. So what does your faith tell you? I challenge the thinking that miracles do not happen today, because if I believe in God, believe the Bible to be God’s words then I can not buy into the stinkin thinkin that our self-talk, bodywork or even magic is to be credited for the miracles happening everyday in lives around the world. Believe in things that are proven, believe in truth and release the false teachings and beliefs running through our lives like a flash flood of debris and trash. Stand on the foundation of only truth…God’s Word, AKA The Bible and begin to believe in and experience miracles in your life today.
