Every miracle begins with a problem, and God is the miracle worker. So, no matter what you’re facing, God has your answer.
This is an essential truth in our faith because it speaks of God’s power, ability, and willingness to move in our lives. Jesus is alive and the work of the Holy Spirit is happening right now. This truth fuels our faith in God and empowers us to reach for him daily.
This also is an important truth because it ignites our Hope. God gives Hope; the devil takes away hope. God makes us hopeful; the devil makes us hopeless.
We let our hope fade; our faith will eventually disappear too. Therefore, we must remember that God has your answer.
“I am the Lord, the God of all the world’s peoples. Is anything too hard for me?”Jeremiah 32:27
“For nothing is impossible with God.”Luke 1:37
What are you facing today?
You have more problems than a math book, but God knows the answer and can solve them all.
Our part is to believe that he is able and willing to do something about it. He’s ready to move and do what we can’t, so when we reach up through faith, it gives him a chance to work in our lives.
So here are three things we can do when we face a problem.
First, acknowledge what it is.
We must acknowledge reality and face the problem standing in our way. Once we recognize it, we can speak to it and get God involved.
If we refuse to acknowledge it, we are also putting ourselves and God in a box. Our faith releases Jesus in our lives, which means accepting what we’re facing.
It may be scary, overwhelming, and daunting, but God can make a move. We acknowledge it and face it.
This doesn’t mean we’re defeated, but rather it means I’m acknowledging it so I can begin to face it through faith in God.
Second, pray about it.
The Bible is clear that God moves when we pray. It may take persistence, but when prayers go up, God’s answers come down, and things begin to change.
Please don’t believe the devil’s lies that say our prayers are not working and God is not answering. He is a liar, and the truth is that god hears. Every word we say and even keeps our tears in a bottle (see Psalms 56:8).
My encouragement is to keep praying. Don’t give up, and don’t stop. Press in and be determined to see God move. I believe too many times, we give up because we’re discouraged by what we see and feel. But God is moving when we don’t see or feel it. He’s moving and doing great things.
Our part is to believe it and reach for him!
Don’t quit praying. Let God work through your persistent prayers!
Third, reach out for support.
There’s something special about letting other people pray with you concerning your problems. God moves in it, and great things happen through combined faith.
“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.”Matthew 18:19
Reaching out to others is humility, and God honors humility. However, when we keep it a secret, try to hide it, and go through it alone, we’re caving into pride that blocks God.
There’s nothing wrong with having a problem or going through something. It doesn’t mean you’re less than or a weak Christian. We all go through things; we need Jesus to help us move forward and others to help us connect with Jesus.
This is how God set it up, so please, reach for support and let others come around you and pray with and for you.
God has your answer!
He knows what he’s doing, every detail of your life, and what you’re facing. He is a genius, his power is supernatural, and he’s willing to do something extraordinary in your life.
So today, keep going, don’t give up. God not only has your answer, but he’s also bringing the answer to you!
I’m Standing with you, believing the best is yet to come!
