Have you ever prayed for a miracle?
I wish I was able to have more faith and believed others when they stated “If you knew the magnitude of the blessing coming your way, you would hug your struggles for preparing you”.
Recently, I found myself praying for miracles and that God would confirm that he was hearing my prayers. At first, I was doubtful that God was listening to my prayers because why would he listen to me? Then I became fearful that I was asking for too much because I was not getting any responses to my prayers or was it that I was not paying attention to the answers?
Is it possible to ask too much of God? The same God that tells us he is all powerful, all knowing and creator of all things. The same God that says “before he formed you in your mother’s womb he knew you”. So nah, I don’t believe there is anything too much for God. After all in Matthew 7:7 he says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
I have now realized that my fears were just there to prevent me from showing God how much faith I have that he will do what I deem impossible in my life and to discourage me from accessing the hope, potential and joy that is inside of me.
Can you imagine the joy we’ve missed out on because we decided to focus on whatever it is that burdens us? Or by focusing on the blessings of others? Or by simply not believing that God is just waiting for us to ask for what we want so that he can pour out blessings into our lives.
I have made a commitment to myself and to God that starting today I will ask for all that I need regardless of how impossible it may seem to me at the moment and I promise to believe that God will provide it for me. I will also try to remember that whenever problems appear that it is pregnant with the purpose of preparing me for the Gifts that I have asked God for. In doing so, I have discovered the fountain of joy, faith and peace that I have been wishing for all my adult life 🙂
I pray that you too may access this joy and this peace… so cast all your burdens on God through prayer and allow him to sort it out. After all, you were never made to shoulder these burdens and most definitely not meant to carry them alone.
John 15:7 “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”
John 16:24 “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.”
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ” 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.“
I am trusting your timing as only you know when I am ready to receive the gifts that I have asked for in faith. Thank you for reminding me that all I need is to ask in faith and you will pour out blessings in my life as well as caring for all my needs. Remove all fear and doubts from my spirit and sow joy and hope into me.
