Our Father in heaven always wants to do good things for us. He desires to heal and work miracles for His children. We can receive all of these things as we listen for His voice and follow His leading.
In John 10:24, people said to Jesus, “If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.” He answered, “The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me…. Though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him” (vv. 25, 38).
His miracles prove that He is the Messiah. And where is Jesus now? He says in John 14:23:“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” God has set up shop in us. We have the Godhead dwelling in us—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Wherever we go, we bring God. And Jesus makes this amazing promise in John 14:12: “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”
He gives us the key to miracles in Mark 11:22-24: “Have faith in God. Whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”
The world says, “Seeing is believing”—but Hebrews 11:1 says, Faith is … the evidence of things not seen. When you start to realize something is real before you see it, then you have it.
I know what it is like to be dying in a hospital bed of malaria. I know that the symptoms can try to overwhelm any faith you have. It is hard to pray through to the point where you have faith, so that “you know that you know that you know.” When you hit that point of certainty, it’s no more guesswork, wishing, or hoping. It’s true faith.
We need to have simple trust in what Jesus accomplished on Calvary: And by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). We may think we’re not worthy, but Jesus says, “I came for you and I love you. If you were the only one, I’d die for you—because you’re worth it. Not only will I save you, I will set up My home and dwell in you.”
So remember: With Jesus I can do all things. Nothing is impossible with Him. I am a child of God and He loves me. I am His and He is mine. He enables me to do good things. When I come into a room, Jesus comes in with me. He will never leave me nor forsake me, and nothing can separate me from His love. God bless you.
