TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9) Are you facing a problem that you have said, “Only a miracle from God can help me now?” God wants you to know He sees you and is ready to work in your behalf. He will cause you to be victorious over all your enemies!
DESPERATE TIMES, DESPERATE MEASURES
Just so you know the truth, miracles are not God’s best for His people. Miracles are there for God’s people when miracle is required.
The fertile ground that bears the fruit of a miraculous move of God is typically a dangerous place to stand. You don’t see miracles when there is money in the bank and a 7-11 on the corner. You don’t hear of the miracle healing of a skin disorder when all you have to do is apply the cream your insurance paid your doctor for.
No, miracles are powerful moves for very desperate times. It’s an important biblical lesson to learn: It’s better to not need a miracle.
Some of the most mind-bending manifestations of God are born in the midst of chaos and controversy. It was like that when God parted the Red Sea for the children of Israel. It was like that when Jesus fed 500 men (and a lot more women and children) using five rolls and two smoked fish. Against all odds, the hand of God moves.
Understanding that miracles are a dangerous place to stand, know that 1995 was a very dangerous time for Leanna and I. Not because our lives were in peril, but because we were in the infant stages of building what is now OpenDoor Church and so much was on the line.
I want to stop right there and remind you of this: it is always the devil’s plan to snuff out a work of God before it is able to stand.
“…and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.”
– Revelation 12:4
Satan is a cosmic punk. He is not a brilliant strategist. He is a relentless opportunist! 1 Peter 5:8 tells us he’s like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. He’s really not all that powerful because he needs your permission to devour you! Those who don’t know any better, open the door for him to tear them to pieces. This is lack of trust in God’s power to deliver you!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO KNOW THE DEVIL IS POWERLESS OVER YOU IF YOU DON’T OPEN THE DOOR AND LET HIM IN. TRUST IN GOD’S POWER TO DELIVER YOU FROM HIS ENEMY THROUGH A MIRACLE. DO YOU NEED ONE? CALL ON HIS NAME WITH CONFIDENCE!
