Way of receiving miracle – Part 2
You are the one who controls God’s ability in your life. God doesn’t. It is God’s power and His ability, but it’s up to you. The Scripture says in Ephesians 3:20, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. “Many people leave off that last phrase, “according to the power that worketh in us.” If there is no power in you, you can stop God’s intervention in your life. God has chosen to never violate your will. God has chosen to flow through you. Satan can’t stop God’s power, but you can. God wants you to have a miracle, but you have to stop waiting and start believing.
The most important miracle in the Bible is the virgin birth of Jesus. God came and lived in a physical body — now that’s a miracle. The account is found in Luke 1. The angel came and spoke to Mary of this miracle. The miracle happened when Mary answered (in verse 38), “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.” When God creates, He speaks it into existence by His Word.
God did all His miracles by the spoken Word. In Genesis, He created the world by the spoken Word. Hebrews 11 tells us, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” The important point is that your words are involved in your miracle.
Many Christians put prayer above all and believe that if you pray, it will happen. Prayer is like water or fertiliser that you put on the seed. But without planting a seed, watering is useless. If God were moved by need, every person’s need would be met. Also, those in the worst situations would get their needs met first. That’s not true.
You must plant a seed, which is the Word of God. First Peter 1:23 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” We are born again of incorruptible seed — the Word of God. The word “seed” in this scripture means sperm. We are born of a supernatural union and the seed of the Word of God.
Farmers believe that if you plant wheat, you get wheat. If you plant corn, you get corn. They don’t question it — they are simply laws. Everybody agrees with that in the natural, but when it comes to spiritual things, most people don’t believe that. But the truth is that if you aren’t reaping what the Word of God says, you haven’t planted what the Word of God says to plant. You reap what you sow. If the Word of God is primary in your life, you’re going to get the results of the Word of God. That doesn’t mean Satan won’t fight you and you won’t have problems. The end result will be you’re going to have what the Word of God says. Satan may fight you, but you’ll win. Many of us know this intellectually, but in our hearts, there is fear or reservation. We don’t have the absolute confidence that God’s Word is going to prevail in our lives.
Romans 8:6 says, “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” If all you think about is the Word of God, that’s all you’ll get. You may not be thinking, I want to be sick, but your thinking has been sick. Proverbs 4:22 tells us that the Word of God is “life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
