Sometimes we feel like God has left us when He is actually setting us up - positioning us for the right and perfect time so one day, we are so positioned IN Him - perfectly positioned the emphases, for the unexplainable miracle that will bring glory to His Name, The Name above all Names !
Definition of a miracle:
Point #1 - A surprising and welcomed event that is not explainable by natural or scientific laws
Point #2 - Miracles happen to increase our faith in God. The miracle of water into wine at the wedding feast in Cannan, brought glory to God and the disciple's faith increased.
To my readers of this lesson today, who place their faith in their confession of faith rooted in Eastern religions with a New Age thinking, and these confessions of faith supposedly making good things happen with positive energies put out there, this faith energy is not born of The Power of God for His Plan and His Design for your life. You can chant a mantra till the cows come home and something might happen but you can be sure it is not from God but a whole lot of psychic energies and works of the flesh instead.
What you might call "a miracle" resulting from your positive energies put out there, is not from the God of The Empty Tomb, or The God who rose Lazarus from the dead. It is not from the God who sat and ate with tax collectors who were considered the most wicked sinners of the day, or The God of The Apostle Paul who murdered Christians believing this honorable and later became sought after for preaching the very Christ he persecuted as the needed Savior of all mankind. Your faith energies and mantras in no way come from God nor do your imitations of His Miracles result in His Life imparted to those who are also misled. Your chants, mantras, and positive energies may invoke something, but what?!!!
If you are placing your faith in the words you speak - and of course the tongue can make a difference in how the ship of one's life turns and where it is going, a conjured up kind of faith to get what you want rather than placing your emphases on the power of your relationship with God and miracles for His Glory, will find your ship lost in a deep dark sea somewhere. This ship needs to be turned around to see the light of the light house. It needs to refocus on their saving grace in a Savior who deeply cares for their best interest. This ship needs to be turned around before great disappointments continue to affect the naive and ignorant lured-in-followers around them. It needs to be turned around before others jumping on this bandwagon of radical rebellion to God continue to be born and lured into a world of spiritual darkness and disappointments, these disguised lures packaged to appeal to the casual seeker of Truth. Such deceptions would never appeal to those of us who genuinely seek The Living God of The Empty Tomb, rather than a casual self-serving temporary fix of fraudulent miracles and healings.
When the unexplainable of a miracle from The Living God happens, and you have questioned for great lengths of time if God still has your number while life has become a stagnant drag of non-interest in even living at times, know this: He have so positioned you for a miracle that will bring glory to Him and you did not even know this was happening. God has so designed circumstances all around you to increase your faith and to bring glory to His Name.
Does God still have your number? He does. He has not forgotten you!! Does He want an authentic, unexplainable miracle for your life? He does and He's still in the business of miracles today. If a miracle happens in your life and it is the real deal, you will know it's real because your faith and all those around you experiencing the real thing of a miracle from God, will be strengthened in Him. When it is the real thing - the unexplainable, you will sing and shout Glory To God is worthy of praise and worship, forever and ever.
When it is the real thing it will never be for entertainment purposes or self-serving interests. It will always be to praise and honor Jesus, the Risen Lord and God, and one's faith and all who are touched by the miracle will increase in Him.
