Room For A Miracle

Realistic

Practical

Pragmatic

Sensible

 

This is the way my brain thinks. This is the way I’m wired….or so I think.

 

But the bible tells us:

 

For, “Who can know the LORD’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16

 

It also tells us:

 

 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:5

 

I’m an in the box kinda person. I like structure and parameters. I like a clearly defined set of expectations. I like check lists. I make a good employee because I can follow the rules. I am realistic, practical, pragmatic and sensible. Yup that’s who I am. And while those may be some good attributes, they do not lend themselves to creating an environment ripe and ready to receive a miracle.

 

In Andy Andrews book, The Traveler’s Gift, I read these profound words that stopped me dead in my tracks.

 

“Reason never makes room for miracles; faith releases miracles. Faith is a sounder guide than reason. Reason can only be stretched so far, but faith has no limits.”

 

These words were oh so timely for me. For 2 weeks now, I’m been beseeching the Lord for a miracle. I’ve been telling the Lord plainly, “I NEED A MIRACLE!” But these words from Andrews cut me so deeply. Though I claimed I was participating in my miracle, my pragmatic thinking and realistic reasoning… Click To Tweet Was I actually hindering my miracle from manifesting?

 

What about you? Are you an active participant in your miracle? Are you a free flowing, faithful, believing conduit? Or are you the sensible person for who reason is your compass and guide? Will you leave room for a miracle?

 

I invite you to join me in aligning our thinking with that of The Most High and expect and believe that not only is He able but He is willing to deliver that which you seek in alignment with His will.

 

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21

 

Let us pray…

Most gracious and merciful Father, it is with an open heart, an open mind and a willing spirit that we come to you. We thank you for being an all loving, all knowing and all powerful God. Oh Eternal One, the same who created the heavens and the earth, you are indeed the same one who loves and sees us even at this very moment. God we ask forgiveness for when we have gone astray. We ask for forgiveness for when we have doubted you or tied your hands with our lack of belief. But Lord we come boldly, asking like Jabez that you would bless us indeed, that you would enlarge our territory, that you would keep your hand on us and keep us from harm. Lord let it be to us, that the word you have spoken for us will not be prolonged but the word, which you have spoken, shall be done. Let it break forth speedily Lord. You said you have well seen and will hasten your word to perform it. We reject any spirit of doubt, disbelief or discouragement. Every adversary working to delay our miracle is disbanded in Jesus’ name. Lord we count it a privilege to not only witness but to partake of your wonder working power. You at work in and through us advances your kingdom. We thank you for working through us and we thank you for the manifestation of miracles. To You and You alone be all glory, majesty, dominion and power now and forever. Amen!

 

As always, it is my prayer that you’ve been Inspired To Live Fully!

    Amen!
    The songs says, “after you’ve done all you can, you just stand.”

    There are times in life when you have no choice but to Trust God (or go crazy). I choose to trust.

    At this exact moment, as of June first neither my husband or myself have a job. That is something that could freak some people out but I choose to believe that he’s an on time God and he has already worked it out. I’m learning to find joy in uncertainty. I’m learning to trust God as my Provider. My faith grows stronger everyday.

    Nothing is too difficult for MY God!

    I pray that God will give us all the kind of faith that goes beyond what we can reason with our limited knowledge. May He draw us to Himself and may we trust Him to accomplish His purposes in us. May He give us grace to follow wherever He leads. Blessings to you! I’m your neighbor at #MeCoffeeandJesus!
