Many of us have read the Bible and the accounts of miraculous healing. We’veread how the dead was risen, the blind given sight, the demon possessed delivered and the sick healed. The Bible give accounts of favor and blessings and richesgiven to the people of God, like Job and King Solomon. Yet, there are many of us who have not had first hand accounts of the miraculous. There are some that even suggest that God is no longer in the miraculous business, He retired after the Bible days. I must disagree with that because in the same Bible it states that "He is the same God He changes not" it goes on to say " He is the same God today, yesterday and forever more. I take the word of God very seriously, because I know that God is not a man that He should lie, if it says in His word I'm inclined to believe it.
Now the question becomes for many of us, why haven't I experienced the miraculous of God? This is a very good question and I was determined to figure it out so I went to the Bible to find the answer. I look at the recipients of miraculous encounters and tried to figure out their moves and steps before their experience. When I found myself in a situation where nobody or nothing else can deliver my loves or me out of a situation, I emulate those moves and steps. For instance, recently a friend of mine became gravely sick and was admitted in the hospital. This friend needed to have a miraculous encounter with God, and it needed to happen quickly. I began to think about instances in the Bible, when someone was gravely sick and need healing expediently. The account of a man name Jairus and his 12 year old daughter. I looked at the moves and steps that Jairus took in pursuit of his daughters healing, and gathers these keys to access the miraculous.
Number one the Bible says "Jairus sought out Jesus and pleaded for his help"That means we first must realize Jesus is the answer to our troubles and He's able to fix the issue. Too many of us don't believe that Jesus can do today what he did in the Bible days, so we don't caste our cares on Him as he requests. The Bible says "you receive not because you ask not" this lets us know that no matter what it is we can take it to the Lord in prayer. The Bible says that Jairuspleaded for Jesus, that he was fervent in his request. The Bible says that "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
When I received the news that my friend was in the hospital gravely sick, I immediately went to God in prayer on her behalf. Why? Because I understand that there's nothing too hard for him. I began to cry out and plead to God on my friend’s behalf, and I continue to do that in my time of prayer. I bombarded heaven with my request (I was pleading for help!) and did not stop until something happened.
Two, the Bible says that as Jesus and Jairus was traveling to his house, Jairusreceived a report that his daughter was dead, and there was no need to bring Jesus to his home. Jesus over hears this and says to Jarius "don't be afraid just believe, and she will be healed." Every time I read this statement which Jesus made, itblows my mind, because the report says she's dead however Jesus still states He's going to heal her, not resurrect her. That lets us know, no matter what the report says, no matter what it looks like, believe that God is going to do what he said he's going to do! My friend had so many tests done and the report came back that my friend needed major surgery. I continued to believe God and did not give the doctors report more weight then I gave Gods ability. When I prayed for my friend the night before surgery the first thing I said was "whose report shall we believe, we believe yours God, and if it's your will that this surgery be done, let thy will be done. I asked God to be in complete control of the surgeon and everything in that operating room." The day of the surgery came and there was a mishap, so no surgery. The second attempt to do the surgery another issue arose, so no surgery. I noticed that each time I saw my friend the night before the scheduled surgery, my friend was getting stronger and stronger. I would pray with my friend each night before the surgery and in my personal prayer time, I never stopped. On the third attempt to do the surgery and was deemed unnecessary at that time and my friend was discharged from the hospital, and went home that very day.
Listen my friend went from gravely ill and needing major surgery, to no surgery and discharged from the hospital. Jairus’ daughter went from being confirmed dead to alive and well. When the question is asked, is God still in the miraculous business? My answer is absolutely yes! Jesus left us keys to the Kingdom and we have the authority to access the things of the Kingdom, we just have to use the keys. The Bible says that healing is the children's bread, if it belongs to us why shouldn't we partake of it. Don't continue to be locked out of the miraculous, use your keys! Believe that God is able to fix your issue, no matter how difficult it looks. Go fervently before the thrown of grace, plead with God to help you with your situation without ceasing. No matter how bad the report comes back don't stop believing! (I always make this statement it usually looks real crazy right before the miracle). Whatever way God decided to do it don't question it, remember His thoughts are not our thoughts, and His ways is not our ways. Last but not least sit back and watch the miraculous take place right in front of your very eyes!
People of God listen we serve an awesome living God, He didn't die in the Bible days. Our God still have all power in His hands, He still causes the sun to rise and shine, and the seas to stay in there appointed place. I'm a witness that God is still in the healing, deliverance and setting free business! If we want to tap into the miraculous we must use our keys, and the doors will be open up to us. Will you try yours today?
