Understanding the Place of Miracles (Part II)
“You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.” (Psalm 77 verse 14, New International Version).
This is the key Bible verse for our “Come and See” devotional today.
Miracles can be essential if we are to fulfil God’s given purpose our lives. Our physical strength and mental abilities are not always sufficient to overcome the challenges thrown at us by this world. God has promised not to leave us alone and this, in itself, is a clear indication of the need for divine intervention in achieving our destiny. When miracles happens, sicknesses gives way for health; happiness replaces sorrow; captives are set free and promises are fulfilled. Most importantly, the impossible becomes possible. As our key Bible verse indicates, a miracle is the manifestation of God’s power to the living!
Miracles are activated by the unfailing mercy and compassion of the Most High God and they typically occur when situations become critical and intolerable. This is illustrated by the encounter between Jesus and the woman who had been subjected to bleeding for twelve years and who was approaching the end point of life. The Bible recorded that: “she had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.” (Mark 5:26, New International Version). Her helplessness resulted in desperation which eventually qualified her situation for the release of the miraculous.
When John the Baptist was imprisoned he sent two of his disciples to question the identity of Jesus Christ but Jesus replied with proof of multiple miracles; He said: “go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.” (Matthew 11:4-5, New International Version). This account further confirms the place of miracles in silencing the doubters of divine intervention. When the ability of your God to save and deliver is being questioned in your situation, then is the time for the MIRACLE WORKER to intervene to their ultimate amazement.
The miracle of Hannah was triggered by the mockery of her husband’s second wife, Peninnah. Hannah was apparently unable to have children but this unhappy situation was terminated by the intervention of God, leading to the birth of Samuel and an additional five children. The Bible records that: “and the Lord visited Hannah, so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters” (1 Samuel 2:21, New King James Version).
Are you being mocked like Hannah because of your situation? If so, then you are a right candidate for multiple miracles to the shame of your adversary. The God of Miracle who is never late will bring respite to that situation and terminate every prolonged mockery of your disdainers.
Let us pray: “Father, intervene in my situation with your miraculous power,” in Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.
