God, who parted the Red Sea, rained manna from heaven, caused the walls of Jericho to fall, shut the lions’ mouths, healed the sick, raised the dead and calmed the sea, still performs miracles today.
However, some Christians doubt that God wants to work a miracle for them today. They believe that there were miracles when Jesus walked the earth, but they think that the day of miracles is over. And they talk about how everything will be perfect one day in the sweet by and by. But God wants us to know that He is still the God of miracles today.
Martha of Bethany was like one of those Christians. She wondered if Jesus could perform a miracle when her brother Lazarus died. By the time Jesus arrived on the scene, Lazarus had already been dead for four days. So she thought that Jesus was four days too late. That is why she said, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” (John 11:21) And even when Jesus said that Lazarus would rise again, she said, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” (John 11:24)
Martha believed that Jesus could perform miracles in the past and would do the same in the future, but she did not believe that He could give her a miracle when she needed it right then. You see, Martha was someone who lived wishing that the past could be changed and believing that the future would be better. But she did not believe that the “I Am” was there to meet her present need.
Today, God stands at the point of your need. What miracle do you need from Him? Believe that He is still the same miracle-working God today. Believe that you will see the glory of God. Believe and you will see your miracle!
The above post is a sharing of a teaching from Pastor Joseph Prince. www.josephprince.org and I encourage you to partake further of Pastor Prince’s teaching because the Scriptural insight is perhaps the most powerful I’ve found for realizing healing and wholeness. In my book, Slam the Door on Cancer, I share Prince’s discernment of the “Body of Jesus” because, years ago, it opened my eyes to a truth that made all the difference in my own process of Locking Cancer (indeed disease) Out of My Life.
Where do we get the kind of faith Jesus urges in Martha? It is a FREE gift from our Lord who loves us unconditionally and who wants us healed, healthy, whole, and joyfully walking out the life HE planned for each of us before the foundation of the earth. How do we get it? We ask God for it–for insights, discernment, perception that will move us in HIS kind of faith. When we earnestly make this request, Holy Spirit joyfully comes into our own spirits and we can SEE, KNOW, and BELIEVE things we otherwise could not see, know and believe.
