27 John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.
Today’s Inspiration: You can receive nothing unless it has been given to you from heaven. This was the statement John uttered when John the Baptist was baptizing the Jews at Jordan river. John 3:27. Do not desire for things that the heavenly Father does not intend you to have. Delayed answers are not denials. God will answer your request in His timing. Those He didn’t desire to give you are those requests not according to His will. So do not despair if you are denied of certain projects as to have them would mean strife for your soul. God knows what you are capable of handling.
We must know what God’s will for us is. His will for us is to finish the assignments He has given to us. As you rise up in faith to perform His will, you will reap what you sow. There are still others who reap what they have not labored for. This too is the grace of God. V37. Both the sowers and reapers are meant to rejoice together, all those who gather fruit for eternal life. V36.
God is omnipresent. All you have to do is to believe in His word and the miracles He has performed and will also perform for you. All those who believe receive. Because the nobleman believes his son received miraculous healing resulting in the whole family’s salvation. I recalled an experience where a boy was miraculously healed through our prayers where no doctors or mediums could heal him of his mental sickness resulting in the whole family salvation and his father giving his life to serve God full time. John 4:53. What an awesome experience! If so, families receiving such miracles will see a great revival in this land. But unfortunately there are people who walked away after receiving miracles without even a word of thanks like the nine lepers who were healed.
Let us be thankful for what God has done for us and believe we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Philippians 4:13. God be praised always!
Prayer: Lord I believe. Help my unbelief that I might receive miracles each day according to my faith. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
