2 Kings 3:17
17 “For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink.’”
Today’s Inspiration: You shall not see rain yet the valley shall be filled with water so that you and your flock and herds may drink. 2 Kings 3:17. All you have to do is to believe in Him that performs ways beyond your imagination. Signs and wonders will follow those who believe. Mark 16:17. You are designed for signs and wonders. Isaiah 8:18.
Elisha was able to do wonders for the widow who had only a jar of oil in the house that enables her to pay her deceased husband’s debts. 2 Kings 4:7. God can perform miracles based on whatever things are available. With one staff Moses was able to deliver the Israelites from the land of slavery. God always use whatever is available in our hands to perform miracles. The key is to believe in Him that has chosen you and sent you and not to fear amidst difficult circumstances.
Elisha was able to purify the water with a new jar of salt to make it drinkable and to allow the land to be fruitful again. 2 Kings 2:21-22. It’s all in His awesome power to perform signs and wonders you desire. All you have to do is to believe in all that is commanded of you. This is the age of miracles.
Let turbulent thoughts of lack be replaced by words of edification from the Lord that you may see signs and wonders you desire. Jesus heals those who believe in Him and are in desperate need. Even belief in the crumbs of God’s word enables the Syrophoenician woman to receive miracle healing for her daughter. Jesus attributed it to her fervent faith that miracles are performed. Matthew 15:28. Without faith it is impossible to please God to feed the 4000 families who were listening to His teachings for three days.v32-38.
What is in your hand, give it to the Lord and He will perform miracles for you.
Prayer: Lord, I believe You can do all things through me. Help my unbelief. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Today’s Inspiration: Fear is our greatest enemy and has to be conquered by love for love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18. To nurture the damaged trees of wrong done to us is to be a prisoner of the past. To refuse to forgive is also destructive. Unforgiveness choked the life out of marriage or out of family relationship and friendship. To avoid forgiving would mean imprisoning your emotions.
It costs the Lord Jesus at Cavalry to bring us forgiveness. If we are to bear the image of God we cannot afford not to forgive our offender. Forgiveness carries a condition that it starts with us first to forgive the offender. To accept God’s forgiveness and to refuse to forgive our offenders is a wicked act as Jesus explained in the parable of unforgiven servant in Matthew 18:21-35. When you don’t forgive and you choose to be bitter against the offender, you have made yourself a slave to the offender.
