Andre’s Blog 1 Expect a Miracle in your life.

One of the most difficult things for us to grasp and believe is that the God, who created life, is interested in our well being. The truth is that God loves you and has proved this love for you, by giving to you the best that He has. To prove his love for you, he has given gifts to you, which you can express and experience if you will begin to believe in Him. His greatest gift to you was his son Jesus and the fact that you can partake of his life.
He that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Romans 8: V 32.

The next thing we need to set before us is the truth that the Lord is my source. No one else is my deliverer he and he alone will deliver and provide for me.
Beloved I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.
3 John: V 2

God is my supplier. He is the source of supply to me.
‘Together the Lord and YOU can do what seems impossible.
Faith is believing that.
Let us see how we can build up our faith. For this we need to understand what faith is and then how to develop faith and make it grow within us.
Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. If you do not listen to good preaching or expose yourself to the preached ‘Word’ your faith will not grow. It is not enough to just pray and to just read. Faith grows by hearing the Word preached properly. If you are listening to dead sermons or lectures that do not stir your spirit into action, your faith will not grow. You need to be constantly
Use your faith and the Word of God to bring in the miracles you need.
In order for us to overcome the obstacles in our lives, God has given us his Word and asks us to use our faith. The combination of these two faith weapons will break down any opposition to you and will allow you to reach and achieve your dreams in him.
‘As you believe, expect God’s provision and you will begin to receive the miracles you need.’
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Mark 11: V 24.

‘A poor man cannot help, he can only cry for help.’

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: V 19.

God is your source. He supplies everything you need to live a life that is pleasing to him. He is your supplier. He will give to you if you will believe him and ask him to bless you and prosper you.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
Romans 10: V 17

Faith is the ability to receive blessings and miracles that you need from God. Faith believes God is going to do it for you, even when it seems impossible. Faith believes what God is going to do, although it has not manifested yet.
Faith is declaring with your lips the promises of God and the needed outcome that you expect.
‘Begin to praise God in the time of your adversity and you will attract the miracle of deliverance that you need.’
‘To sing and praise God in the time of adversity will always bring the miracle you need.’
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sung praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them, and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.
Acts 16; V 25 – 26.
Sing and Praise in the face of adversity brings miracles of deliverance.
Paul and Silas were imprisoned for their faith and their public declaration of the gospel. They had been beaten and whipped with many stripes and were cast into prison. The rough jailor then threw them into the inner prison. These prisons were notorious for their bad conditions, the health risks and the lack of light and ventilation.
It would have been difficult for either of these two great men of God to even hold a decent conversation considering the conditions in which they found themselves. They were hurting and in great pain. They could not see each other in the dark. I am sure they were questioning why they were now in this position especially after faithfully serving God.
Yet in spite of all the negatives and the adversities, they knew they needed a miracle. All they could do and all they could give at this time, was their praise and worship. Being in stocks they could not move, without light they could not see, so they did what they could do in their adversity. They could sing. And sing they did.
Instead of moaning and complaining they lifted up their voices and began to pray and sing praises unto God. They sang loud enough so that the other prisoners could hear as well.
Then God did the impossible. The Lord sent the earthquake and every door opened, every chain was loosed and their freedom came. Begin to sing; it will release the miracle working power of the God of miracles, who is your mighty deliverer, and He will set you free from your bondage and adverse circumstances.
Start sowing for a miracle.
One of the things we notice about God in the scripture is that his intentions are for us to be in health and to prosper. He considers what is good for us and how he is going to bless us. He expresses his goodness by his generosity. He is a giver. His nature is to give to man, even in situations where man does not want his influence or interference. God is a great giver. Let’s use this terminology ‘God is a giver and a sower.’
For God so loved the world that he gave…
John 3: V 16
He that spared not his own son, but delivered him up. for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Romans 8: V 32.
Beloved I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.
3 John: V 2
God is my supplier. He is the source of supply to me.
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus
We have seen that even when we were enemies of the Father, He gave us Jesus. He activated the miracle of your rebirth by sowing Jesus into your life while you were still in sin. While we were sinners Christ died for us. We were not even aware at the time that the Father was sowing his seed (Jesus) into our lives. He was giving to get. He knew if we embraced his Son as Saviour and Lord, it would change our lives and bring him pleasure.
When we need a miracle remember we have to work the miracle. We begin by acknowledging that the Lord is our source of supply. Then we begin to seed for the miracle. We give and give like he did, till we start receiving what we need.
But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
2 Corinthians 9: V 6.
It is important that you acknowledge that the seed you sow is for a particular miracle you wish to grow.
Once you start to give, declare you are seeding for the miracle that you need. Declare the seed is for a particular miracle. Before the Lord declare the miracle you need and that you have seeded for a miraculous solution to the problem you face.
An inward expectancy for a miracle will soon rise in your spirit. Good farmers expect a crop after they have seeded. You must expect the miracle to come, because you have seeded and sown into the Kingdom.
Faith will then rise in your heart. You will have an inner witness that what you are believing for and trusting God for, is about to happen.
Then, watch and pray. Your miracle from God is on its way and will soon arrive.
Keep giving until the Lord starts to supply the complete miracle you need to solve the problem you face.
One of the most insane ideas we have; is that when we are generous we feel guilty to expect a return on our giving. Yet when we are in business we expect a certain level of service or quality. In our relationships we expect a certain amount of responsibility from our partners. In the Churches we go to, we expect a certain quality in the facilities. We look for a warmth and wholeness in the worship and fellowship.
Yet when we give to the Kingdom or to the work of the Lord; we deny ourselves a return, by saying that we expect nothing back. This is a blindness placed on us by the enemy.
A miracle gets put into motion,
At the moment, God has been identified as the source,
Seed has been sowed, and there is an expectation for a miracle.
If your wife promised to meet you for lunch, it would be right to expect her to be there. If Jesus promises us miracles, signs and wonders, it would be right to expect them to happen.
Respond positively to the instructions of the Holy Spirit.
When one listens to the many voices that preach, there is always a call for or a demand for, obedience. The problem is that because of the flesh, we tend to fight the leading of the Holy Spirit. Our carnal natures are opposed to responding positively to him. This causes us to lose the blessings of God or to miss them. If we are aware that we are expected to move in response to him most of our objections can then be overcome. When he speaks we will hear and respond positively.
For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
Hebrews 10: V 36.
I have seen those large steel safes that need two keys to open the door. Normally one person has a key and then someone else has the other key. Using one key will not open the safe. Both keys must be inserted at the same time together in order to get the door to open.
God has the one key and you have the other key. The door to the miraculous opens, when you and the Lord turn the keys together at the same time. He releases his provision and power (his key) when you respond positively to the instructions the Holy Spirit gives you. (Your key)
When he begins to tell you what to do, you must start to dance for joy because the day of the miraculous has opened for you.
Your miracle is about to happen when the Holy Spirit gives you instructions and you fulfil the requirements he desires from you.
Rejoice again I say rejoice because your day of deliverance has come.
Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
With Love and Blessings
