KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 11:34 KJV “And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.”
There are always steps that one has to take to work out miracles. Miracles are a collaboration between God and man. God has His part and man has got his role to play, for a miracle 5o result.
In 1st Corinth 12 when the scriptures were talking about the gifts of the Spirit, the bible referred to miracles, as the gift of working of miracles. There is work that one does to generate a miracle. These are called steps of faith. This is an action based on trust in God. You cannot experience any miracle without taking actions that provoke God to respond likewise.
Jesus had come to resurrect a man dead for four days. This man has begun to rot. In faith, he asked for where he was laid. If he had no assurance of getting him back to life, he would not ask of where he was placed. Do not sit down doing anything, expecting God to work a miracle for you. In verse 39, he approached the tomb and asked that the stone placed at the entrance to the tomb be removed. This step proved clearly that He was not doing guesswork, but a planned and well-motivated act of faith.
What is that condition that you need a miracle? Ask yourself, what acts of faith must I take to arrive at my miracle? If you have prayed for rain, then get an umbrella and, start going. If you were sick and have been prayed for, then you may have to rise up from the bed, dress up, and get going. In some cases, you would have to put aside the medicines and live without them. Please note, it is not the actions that show you believe, but you must first believe God’s word in your heart, and then, follow them up with those acts of faith. If you do not sincerely believe in your heart, taking these steps would be actions in futility. God will quickly respond to every step of faith.
Thank you, dear heavenly Father for your great love for me. Thank you, also that you are not a respecter of persons. Whosoever acts on your word will receive the same results. The same God over all , is rich unto all that call upon Him.
Jas 2:26 KJV “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
Rom 10:12 KJV “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.”
