Topic: The God Of Miracles (Open Heaven 13 December 2020)
Memorise: Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. – 2 Kings 6:5
Read: 2 Kings 6:1-7 (KJV)
1 And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us.
2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye.
3 And one said, Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants. And he answered, I will go.
4 So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood.
5 But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed.
6 And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim.
7 Therefore said he, Take it up to thee. And he put out his hand, and took it.
Bible In One Year: Acts 27-28
A miracle happens when God suspends the law of nature in a particular situation. For example, Jesus suspended the law of gravity for a while so He could walk on water. It is often difficult to explain a miracle to unbelievers, because such occurrences defy natural understanding. The good news is that it does not matter what the world may say, my Daddy is the miracle-working God and when He steps into a matter, miracles happen.
It has been God’s nature from time immemorial to do miracles. The creation of Heaven and earth was a miracle. Every principle established on earth started as a miracle when first made. Before it became normal for the sun to shine, God first performed the miracle of creation. When Jesus (God the Son) came, He established Himself as a functional part of the Godhead by performing several novel miracles. As many as these miracles were, the book of John 21:25 says:
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.”
We will use our Bible reading as a typical example of a miracle. The sons of the prophets were carrying out a ministry building project when the axe head they borrowed fell into a deep river. The one from whose hands it fell cried out for help and got it in the most amazing fashion. Prophet Elisha threw a light log of wood into the river and a very heavy axe head floated in its place while the wood sank like a rock. God reverses principles to establish His will. He is not controlled by the principles He created; He controls everything! The principle of floatation was reversed and the sons of the prophets were saved from embarrassment.
Nothing is impossible for the God of miracles (Luke 1:37). Put all your trust in Him.
I decree and declare God’s miraculous intervention into every situation that wants to embarrass you, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Father, please intervene in my life and turn all impossibilities to possibilities, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.
