Have you ever found yourself waiting around for a miracle? I love the story in John 5:3-9 when a man is waiting to be healed, he had been there for years and nothing happened and in just a moment of a God spoken word he was healed! This got me thinking about how this happens in our own lives. We live around a belief that if we do this one thing then a miracle can happen when all it takes is a word from God! You see, when we are waiting for something external to change it actually is an internal change that we need to realize. Religion will tell you that when you change the outside God will change the inside but He changes the inside for us to see it on the outside. Just like the man at the pool, Jesus didn’t just heal him he asked if he wanted to be made well. He made him change his thoughts about his circumstance before he saw the healing on the outside. A victim mentality will never lead to a victorious life. Do you find yourself giving all the reasons why it won’t or has never worked out for you? Every person has a point in there life where they currently are and where they want to be and in between those points we get full of excuses. We all know to find financial freedom means to live on a budget and be smart about spending but we don’t want to actually do it. Or maybe you know you want to live a healthier lifestyle and that means working out and making better food choices but are you actually doing that? Everybody wants things to get better but nobody wants things to change. God’s next is available for you but you have to be willing to make the change. Life isn’t happening to you, it’s happening for you. Stop telling God how big your problem is and start telling your problem how big your God is.
Friend, one word from God can change everything! The man didn’t need the bubbling up of the water, all he needed was a word from God!! Every morning is a new victory and it is available for you. Matthew 6:33 says, Seek ye first the kingdom of God. Seek Him first and your miracle is on the other side! XO
