Miracle Faith

Miracles happen on a daily basis, but many do not even notice–even those in front of their face.

Why?

They look to reasoning. It is in reasoning–the precursor to doubt, that they justify and explain away the very thing that would draw them in to know Me.

I cause miracles to happen ‘expressly’ to love people, and to express My Love as tangible, personal…

I care.

A miracle doesn’t have to be big to be classified as such, it just has to be impossible for man to do without Divine intervention. I will intervene, if you will pay attention.

Remember, to reason is to enlist your mind. I dwell in the heart of faith. You may have Me in mind when you act in faith but, if you don’t mind, I’d rather ‘prove’ your faith by acting out a miracle before you. If you’ll just take notice, I’ll show you…

By faith.

Does that sound reasonable to you? Then it’s not faith, and it’s not a miracle.

For faith doesn’t reason!

Have Faith

“For if the message declared by angels was valid and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard him, while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his own will.” Hebrews 2:2-4

“And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, so that the throng wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.” Matthew 15:30-31

“And God did extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were carried away from his body to the sick, and diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them.” Acts 19:11

“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, then healers, helpers, administrators, speakers in various kinds of tongues. ” I Corinthians 12:27-28

“Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? Thus Abraham “believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.” So you see that it is men of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham who had faith.” Galatians 3:5-7

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.” I Corinthians 13:1-3

“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.” II Thessalonians 3:5

 

I Have More

When you step forth into your calling, you need not have the approval of men. It is wise to seek confirmation from trusted sources, but all will not agree, for all do not see.

There are many who hold Me to a standard that is theirs and not Mine. I AM so vast and the vision of man is so limited. I caution you not to see Me with your eyes, but Mine. I know it is not possible for you to see all that I see, but what I ask is that you ‘see’ what I give you; that you allow Me to be God of your life; allow Me to be more than what you see.

Do you see?

Limits are man’s way of being comfortable and an attempt to hold confusion at bay. They try to quench fear of the unknown, by sometimes stopping what I AM trying to introduce to them. This is all so futile and proof that they are not ready to receive…

More.

More of who I AM, and more of what I have called them to be. I AM patient, but many will never know or walk in the future I have for them because they limit My Ways and choose, rather, to be comfortable, ‘stable’, they call it.

I call it fear.

Do not let fear quench your call, nor that of any other man–allow Me to direct your path. You will find confirmation along the way, by the Holy Spirit speaking through those you have come to trust. For I have connected you to individuals who are open to My Ways, for a purpose…

to show you the Way.

Always check your heart, for it is there that I reside. Your peace will remain if you have chosen Me to guide you in…

the Way.

Now let Me show you something new–for there is plenty more to do.

I AM unchanging and yet ever revealing, more of who I AM

  • to those who will believe
  • those who will receive
  • those who trust that I AM

Let’s move, for there is More!

Are you listening? When you are ready…

I have More…

“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; yea, and on my menservants and my maidservants in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and manifest day. And it shall be that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'” Acts 2:17-21

“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, “Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with a vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a hart; and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy.” Isaiah 35:3-6

“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way; the unclean shall not pass over it, and fools shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:8

“–Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16:15-18 KJV

“And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.” Mark 16:20 KJV

 

Hand In Hand

I magnify your hands, as if in the spirit they are bigger–able to do more than you could, and would not do on your own.

These hands choose to serve when they would rather play. These hands reach out to touch when it may be inconvenient. These hands represent a heart of love that has been born out of pure love–Mine. A love so pure that it magnifies you, as if you were near to hear My very own heartbeat and to act upon what you hear within Me.

You are blessed with those hands, for they are not calloused, but smooth. In the natural, they may even be rough, but I ask that you see them as I see them, through the eyes of your spirit–through My eyes. For I see not rough, but smooth hands–eager to wipe away the tear, quench every fear and call all to come hear the heart of the one who loves them.

Your hands are My hands.

Do you see?

Yes

You see…

Therefore, you represent Me. Always remember that…

You represent Me!

Therefore, be My Hands.
