Way of receiving miracle – Part 3
When God wanted to bring Jesus down to earth, He couldn’t just create Jesus. God gave all authority over the earth to man. God did not rule directly over affairs of the earth. After man blew it, God couldn’t come down here to intervene. He had to work through man. God was looking for a man to flow through but couldn’t find one. So, He had to come Himself (Is. 59:16). In the virgin birth, the Word of God was the seed. Everything else about the birth was natural. God spoke that miracle into existence.
I believe every one of us has a spiritual womb, where the Word of God enters in and germinates, and we conceive a miracle. Sometimes, you may receive a miracle as a gift through someone else’s faith. You can’t depend on someone else; God wants you to be able to conceive a miracle. Meditate on the Word day and night, and you will get spiritually pregnant and bring forth fruit.
It’s impossible to have a miracle without planting the Word of God. One farmer thought he could violate the laws of God. He waited to plant wheat until everyone else’s wheat was about ready to harvest. He planted N100, 000 worth of wheat the month before harvest. When it didn’t come up and he lost his money, he came to me for prayer. I told him that’s not the way it works. You don’t sow a crop when you want a crop. Some of us haven’t had the seed planted in us, but we want the crop. There is a time of sowing and reaping (Gal. 6:9).
We don’t just naturally grow up believing God. It takes renewing our minds. God’s Word is the most important step to receive a miracle. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” You can’t just know the Word intellectually. You must meditate on it so it becomes living and active on the inside of you. Most of us don’t meditate on the Word, as we should. We are occupied and don’t have time, and we are upset with God when we don’t receive our miracle. That’s just as foolish as the man who didn’t plant his seed, but was upset when he didn’t receive a crop.
If God’s Word is planted in your heart, you’ll receive. It doesn’t matter what you feel — God’s Word will produce a miracle.
