Miracles are God’s gift to us so we can actually see his hand working in our lives. If we didn’t have the impossible to hope and dream for, how hard would it be to describe His wondrous works. It’s because of God’s wondrous works, that open doors in so many ways. If I just said, God showed up, you would think nothing of it. However, if I told you a story how a person was miraculously found, cured of a disease or had a life altering event, you would think quite differently.
“He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.”
Deuteronomy 10:21 NIV
You can hinder your miracle – Sometimes our conscience, and reasoning skills kill our recognition of the miracle in front of us. Other times, our actions and refusal to lend to the spirit cause a forfeiture of God’s best for us.
Miracles are for everyone – There was one thing Jesus made clear and that was His desire for all to have a piece of His super natural blessing. He healed the sick, raised the dead, turned water into wine, calmed the storm and gave his life for you. This is for everyone and not a select few.
Your miracle is waiting – Unlocking our miracle is an important step. Getting into position and preparation is half of the battle. God can’t pour into a closed vessel. He can’t fill you the way he would like to if you don’t have something to put the outpouring in.
“Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.” Abram agreed to what Sarai said. So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. He slept with Hagar, and she conceived. When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress. Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.””
Genesis 16:1-5 NIV
You don’t have to have Abraham’s testimony. When we decide to help God out and provide inputs that aren’t Spirit led, there are consequences. Sometimes we feel they are attacks, but they could have been avoided by simple obedience. This doesn’t have to be your story.
“Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, “Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here.” He replied, “You give them something to eat.” They answered, “We have only five loaves of bread and two fish—unless we go and buy food for all this crowd.” (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” The disciples did so, and everyone sat down. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.”
Luke 9:12-17 NIV
This is another miracle that Jesus performed showing His willingness to provide for everyone regardless of the stance and circumstance. So unlock it. Giving procures miracles. That’s why we call tithe and offering a form of worship. Giving to others is a form of worship. Think of Moses and his obedience in worship.
Numbers 20:6-11 NIV
“Moses and Aaron went from the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting and fell facedown, and the glory of the Lord appeared to them. The Lord said to Moses, “Take the staff, and you and your brother Aaron gather the assembly together. Speak to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water. You will bring water out of the rock for the community so they and their livestock can drink.” So Moses took the staff from the Lord’s presence, just as he commanded him. He and Aaron gathered the assembly together in front of the rock and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?” Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank.”
Numbers 20:6-11 NIV

Be a giver:
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.””
Luke 6:38 NIV
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You matter so much to me and everyone God puts in your path. God is watching you. He has that special miracle for you. He wants you to have it. It’s coming. I believe it and declare Gods anointing and favor over you.
That miracle is for you!
