MIRACLES- Aggressive Faith

Miraculous headings are not unusual or difficult. However, to see them one must be willing to risk aggressive faith. Today, put yourself out there in faith. Risk asking for the difficult and the impossible healing. Risk being disappointed, risk is involved with faith and prayer. You may look the fool but you may also raise the dead!

Please pray for those facing terminal or chronic illness.

  3. IT IS A FUNCTION OF THE WILL

    As I was waking up on 2/16/14, I heard these words being spoken deep within my spirit, “Miracles are not going to change hearts.”

    When someone is healed right before our eyes or finances come out of nowhere just when we need it, we know beyond the shadow of a doubt that it had to have been the hand of God. The more profound the miracle, the greater the effect it will have on our understanding of the magnitude of His power. Miracles widen our understanding of the power of God. But regardless of how profound the miracle, it will not change our hearts. “If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead,” Jesus stated in His response to the Pharisees (Luke 16:31).

    A heart that is continually being transformed in the light of God’s Word is one that is in submission to the will of God. An inner transformation requires an exercise of the will; thus, our heart’s response to the Lord’s commandments is a function of the will. The free will we were given by the Lord now has to be brought into alignment with the will of God. The Lord can force His will on us. He can control us if He wants to; He has all power. But God governs from a position of love. He desires, not superficial but healthy, meaningful relationships with His people. The way of the Lord is in the spirit as well as by the Spirit. We cannot see the road. Thus, we must trust Him to guide our footsteps; we must choose to believe His Word and act upon it.

    God is continually seeking to bring us to maturity in all areas, so that we would think and act like Christ. With respect to faith, He is seeking to bring this level from the mustard seed stage to that of mature fruit (Luke 17:6). The Lord does want to meet our needs but He is more interested in seeing our hearts changed. Like all forms of fruit, whether natural or spiritual, the faith-building process requires time and effort, persistence and dedication. In Luke 11:5-10, Jesus uses a parable to illustrate the approach we are to use when we pray. He emphasizes persistence. We may feel, however, that banging on the Lord’s door long enough will cause Him to relent and give us what we want but He never changes. In Malachi 3:6, the Lord declares, “I change not.” When we pray in faith though, changes are being made. We are being changed, as our faith level increases. As we persevere in prayer, our faith level will rise until it reaches the required level set by God, at which point our request will be granted, provided it is in line with His will. Hence, we are the ones being strengthened in faith, as our perseverance in prayer moves us in the spirit, from seeking to knocking. It is this knocking or the continual exercise of faith through prayer that would then position us to receive our miracle.

    In similar fashion to the faith-building process is the approach that should be used in cultivating all other aspects of the fruit of the Spirit, such as meekness, patience, gentleness and kindness (Galatians 5:22-23). These attributes are within us at their seed stage, due to the Presence of the Holy Spirit; but God desires fruit, not seeds and this process of growth will take persistence. The apparent interruptions and delays we experience during the day are carefully orchestrated (not necessarily initiated), by the Lord, to present us with opportunities to exercise our wills and eventually produce fruit. It is not up to us to create these opportunities for ourselves, however. We are not to usurp His authority by trying to create “fruit-bearing” situations when we are “in the mood” to do so. As Lord over our lives, He must lead the way. He is the one to determine what season we’re in, so that everything flows according to His plans and purposes. In other words, self-control, humility, patience, for example, must be cultivated and produced in the season He assigns, rather than the ones we try to create. The point being made here is that we need to make sure that we are making great strides in exercising qualities, such as patience and humility in the situations that are arranged by God, with the people He places on our path, before attempting to create situations on our own, such as “random acts of kindness.” We need to allow God to lead.

    I believe that it is important to note that the love that is listed as a fruit of the Spirit is Agape love (John 15:12). Human love, which can be exhibited by Christians as well as non-Christians, is need-based; its focus is primarily on meeting basic needs. Whereas Agape love, while it does include the provision of basic needs, goes far beyond that. These two kinds of love are on separate tracks. Agape love flows directly from God, through His Holy Spirit, and cannot be properly understood or explained, except to say that it is unconditional. It is representative of the overflow of the life of Christ within an individual and includes qualities such as sensitivity to the feelings of others, understanding, loyalty, trust and the willingness to lay down one’s life for another. Human love is conditional and limited largely to the material or physical aspects of life, such as the giving of food, clothing, shelter, etc. Any attempts to solve problems other than the material will fail. The ability to resolve emotional issues, for instance, based on human love, will fall far short of the mark, as this kind of love lacks the godly wisdom, depth of compassion and sustaining strength needed to bring about lasting healing, warmth, peace and comfort. As Christians, inhabited by the Holy Spirit, we have been blessed with the ability to develop Agape love. But we must choose to make that a reality in our daily lives.

    Fruit can only be cultivated when our attention is directed to the first and second commandments (Mark 12:30-31) or Golden Rule (Matthew 7:12). We can only obtain God’s empowerment when we do things His way. We need to begin at the beginning and that is with His commandments. This must be our starting position. God wants to change our ideas and opinions-our viewpoints, so that they are all consistent with the mind of Christ, with God’s perspective. Accordingly, the Lord is continually evaluating us based on our perspective and consequently, our approach. The approach used in our communication and dealings with others is that which signals the fruit that has been cultivated-good or bad. Moreover, praying, worshipping, studying the Bible, serving and giving are essential but they are means to an end. The end result must be the degree to which our hearts have been changed so that they mirror that of Jesus Christ.

    “Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of The Father in My name, He may give it you” (John 15:16).

    In our various areas of ministry, this is the fruit that the Lord is seeking. Only God can heal, deliver and save. We do not get the credit for these miracles; the glory is due to Him alone. Our fruit, though, represents the traits that have been built up and that reside within us at the time of our ministry to others. Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:23, “… be renewed in the spirit of your mind.” As we treat those around us with kindness, gentleness and patience, the Holy Spirit does the creative work within us, bringing about deep changes in our hearts bit by bit. Hence, the process of renewing the mind must be initiated and maintained by us. The Spirit then reflects in our spirits what we do in the natural. This process continues until these attributes reach the point of maturity and become fruit.

    Thus, miracles provide a reason for us to believe in the Word of the Lord. They offer some understanding, though limited, about what God can do, but will not automatically bring about change in our hearts. This is a choice we have to make. We can choose to have a brash manner and speak carelessly to others or, by contrast, think highly of each other and be courteous and kind to whomever we meet, especially those we deal with on a daily basis. To obey God’s Word therefore requires a yielding of the will; it is not an automatic process. It must be done intentionally.

    “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:11).

  4. Some additional information related to the above post that I felt the Lord wanted me to share.

    On 8/27/10, I made an entry in my journal. It was of a dream I was given of three line graphs, each complete with a horizontal and vertical axis. The one at the center was the clearest; the two graphs on either side of it were not very clear but I could see their end points. The center graph was labeled “Mustard Seed.” I saw where the line began but could not see where it ended because it continued to go upward, as if to the “point of infinity.” It was this graph that the Lord wanted me to focus in on, for it was a depiction of the possible faith level of a person over a period of time. Faith that is continually watered, nourished and exercised will grow over time, reaching the “point of infinity” where that which previously seemed impossible becomes possible to us. Our belief in God’s ability to bring to pass that which He has told us He would will not happen overnight. It will involve a process of growth because faith is a fruit (of the Spirit).
