Need a miracle? I know someone who can help. Jesus changed the water into wine fit to be served at a wedding. He multiplied a boy’s lunch of two loaves and five fish into a feast to feed 5,000 with leftovers. Jesus healed a man blind from birth. Jesus raised his friend Lazarus from the dead. God’s specialty is transforming the impossible into the probable.
Have you felt a circumstance was irreconcilable? Have you thought a person unredeemable? Have you determined your property loss irreplaceable? God wants to release His power, the resource of His strength is stored up, available for our asking. “This power is so rich, so mobile that all we have to do when we pray is to point to the persons or things to which we desire to have this power applied and He the Lord of this power; will direct the necessary power to the desired place,” says Olan Hallesby in the book, Prayer.
Philippians 4:6–7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
Petitioning God with His words reminds Him of the promises He has made. The promises God has made, He always keeps. Pray using God’s Word to remind Him of His promises and apply the power directly to the desired place. God desires a clean, humble heart along with a submissive spirit. When we bring our requests and ourselves to Him, He will receive us and hear our prayers.
In Matthew 20:32, two blind men found the key to the storehouse of Jesus’ power. Jesus asked them, “What do you want me to do for you?” Boldly, they answered, “Lord we want our sight.” Jesus touched their eyes; instantly they could see. A strong belief in Jesus’ power, coupled along with the specific request, gave God great glory.
Need a miracle? Me too. Let’s unlock the storehouse of Jesus’ power. Let’s pray:
Heavenly Father, we pray according to your will, by the power and grace and authority given to us in your son, Jesus Christ. Glorify yourself, Lord, in answering our request according to your plan. Your will be done; your kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven. Let everyone know this could not have happened except your power had provided. In Jesus’ name, amen.
