I Believe In Miracles
Lately I have been waking up fearful. I have a weight on my chest, and a pain in my heart. It’s a fear of the future the what ifs and what will I do when. The voice in my head is enough to scare anyone silly. It’s the voice of the enemy, telling me it’s over, this time, that I am defeated, my prayers are in vain. Suddenly the truth hits me What am I doing,? am I now believing the lies of the enemy?. This voice in my head telling me the best of my life is over, and I haven’t got God’s blessing or his love, that all my hopes for myself and my family lie in ashes. Then I remember I have a very real enemy who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. , but that Jesus has come that I might have life and have it abundantly. Found in John Chapter 10 verse 10.This is not abundant life, living in fear, so despite the storm outside that’s real,
the lashings of hail and rain, the force of the wind bearing down, and the rattling of the outside furniture, I apologize to God, for failing to trust him in the storm. The one going on outside and the one in my mind.
Just last week, when I felt sad and alone God led me to pick up a book called “Fervent Prayer” by Priscilla Shirer, inspired by the feature film “War room”. I felt to buy it and read it. I am so glad I did, because the author described what was going on in my life, and the emotions I was feeling. She stirred up the gift God has given me and his call on my life for fervent believing prayer.
I began to remember, some of the miracles that God had performed in my life, in my husbands life and in the life of my children and Grandchildren. Very real miracles of healing and blessing. A few years ago Graham was told he had a neurological disease, and that it would be a good plan to do all the things on our bucket list, because he would become severely disabled and die. God had a different plan, and it was revealed the specialists had made a mistake. Graham also suffered a major heart attack whilst we were on holidays far from home. We received God’s blessing, his healing and provision. We made new Christian friends and continued to enjoy our holiday. God put a wall of protection around us, and we travelled home with a song in our heart.
I now need to ask myself has God exhausted his miracles and blessings,? has he the very one who called us out of darkness decided our family has had enough of his help and that he is too busy to hear us when we pray. The word of God is very clear, that he will never leave us or forsake us ever
God is still the God of miracles, his plans for his children are always for good. He is growing us, strengthening us, and shaping us just like the Potter with clay in his hand, and though we may be afraid as we go through the trials of life, the valleys and even the shadow of death, no evil can touch us for his angels are by our side, and God is fully in control. There are limits for Satan, and just when he thinks he has won God shows up and delivers us out of his hand.
Do not give in to the torment of the enemy, for as we remember how Good our God is, and what he has done for us another miracle is being formed to bring us into victory. I wish you all the very best of God’s grace and blessing for your life as you walk in his truth.
Lastly to my family, my precious daughter Rachel, my Sons Shaun and Ryan, my daughter in laws Keryn and Amy, and my grand children Nikiah, Majenta, Isabella, Sarah and Sophia, I want you to know I love you all, you are engraved on my heart. I am glad I have lived long enough to understand the special love a grandmother has for her grand children. I continue to pray for your future.
