What is it that activates the miracle in your life? What is it that can turn everything around? What is it that can turn desperation into a joyful celebration?
As I travel around the world, it doesn’t matter what state or country I am in, it seems there is one thing that I find everywhere. There are people who need a miracle. They need it desperately. They need it today.

So what is it that activates the miracle in your life? What is it that can turn everything around? What is it that can turn desperation into a joyful celebration?

When you can’t think of a way out of your impending disaster, you must know this. God can make a way where there is no way. God doesn’t just find a way of escape that you couldn’t find. He creates one that you would never find, because it didn’t exist. God is a creative miracle God. So, when your back is against the wall, quit looking for a way out and start looking to the Source of your deliverance.

The enemy has an agenda. His desire is to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10) If you are a born again believer, then you carry within you the Spirit of God on this earth and you become the target for the attacks of the enemy. But the truth is the Spirit that is possessing you is greater than the spirit attacking you. And when all the spiritual dust settles, the Spirit within you will be standing and the spirit attacking you will be fleeing.

It’s time to choose sides. It’s time to decide who you are going to believe and swear your allegiance to. Are you going to believe the words of the One who is victorious or are you going to believe the words of the one who will be fleeing? The words you agree with will determine the outcome of your situation.

You may be wanting a miracle, deliverance, and victory in your life. God’s Word has promised you these things. But these promises are conditional. They are activated by faith. Faith is not just knowing that God can deliver you, but faith is hearing God’s promise of deliverance, deciding to believe it, speaking it until it becomes so embedded in your heart that everything you do is based on that belief.

So, it comes down to this. Unless you know God’s promise, you will not know what to believe in. Where are His promises? They are found in His Word, the Holy Bible. And unless we hear His promise, we have no foundation for our faith.

So, what is the practical application of all of this? If the miracle you need is healing for your body, then you must find God’s promises in His Word and hear them, either from someone else or from your own voice. Quote God’s healing promise everyday. And eventually it will get into your heart and the miracle of healing will take place.

To help you on this, here are a couple of healing promises from God.
... By His stripes you were healed. (1 Peter 2:24)
... Forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases. (Ps. 103:2-3)
If the miracle you need is a financial miracle, then do the same thing. Find verses in God’s Word that tell what God wants for you in the area of finances. Some good verses are:
... For your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. (2 Cor. 8:9)

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matt. 6:33)

Honor the LORD with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine. (Prov. 3:9-10)
If your heart is broken because someone has betrayed you or because of the disappointments of life, then you must know that Jesus said in Luke chapter 4 that He came to heal the broken hearted.
... He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted.
(Luke 4:18)
Find the verses that promise what you need and then activate them with the catalyst called faith. Remember, faith is not just believing. Faith is hearing, believing, and speaking God’s Word until it is settled in your heart and then acting on your heart.
