Do you need a miracle?
Receive Your Miracle
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Do you need a miracle? Then believe it, confess it and receive it!
"Oh Gloria, I just don't know if I can do that."
Yes, you can! You've already done it once. When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, you believed, confessed and received the greatest miracle in the universe, the miracle of a reborn spirit! Every other miracle you receive will come in exactly the same way.
You start by simply believing what God's Word says concerning your area of need, by letting that Word change your heart and mind.
A lot of people try to skip that step. They try to believe for a miracle without spending enough time in the Word to change their heart and mind. They just want to confess it with their mouths and have it instantly appear. But that won't happen. It's what we believe in our hearts and say with our mouths that we receive.
If you don't have enough faith yet to believe for the miracle you need, then you can get it. "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Rom. 10:17). So start filling the ears of your heart with the Word until faith for your miracle is born.
That's what the woman did who had the issue of blood. She believed in her heart that Jesus would heal her. Then she spoke her faith out loud. Then she acted on that faith--and she received her miracle.
It wasn't Jesus' decision. He didn't suddenly say, "You know, I think I'll work a miracle for that little lady today." No. She made it happen. She took her faith and drew on the power of God. That's why Jesus said, "Daughter, your faith has made you whole" (Matt. 9:22).
You have that same opportunity. God's power is always present everywhere. Your faith will bring it into your life, body or circumstances. So reach out to Jesus. Believe, confess and receive your miracle today.
Two powerful forces often not used in the spiritual battle we all face daily. Praise and thanksgiving. Praise is a powerful force in battle. It not only gives God the glory He deserves, but it strengthens your faith and gives you a closer relationship with God. It also lets your enemy know, you are trusting in the One Who is worthy.
A thankful heart is something we should learn to practice all the time. In all things give thanks. Not thankful for bad things when they happen, but give thanks because it could have been worse, so be thankful that even when bad things happen, He is with you to help, protect, comfort and guide you. Be thankful for the home you live in, your family, food, your car, the sunshine and the rain, be thankful for the little things. Look at other people and realize how thankful you should be.
Thank God for the things you have and praise Him for all He has done and is doing for you, and He will give you more. Grumble and complain and you will get nothing more and maybe lose what you have.
Gossip is as evil and murder. Complaining is as a cancer in your bones.
Praise and giving of thanks will build you up spiritually and in every area of your life. Walk in love toward others, and honor God. He has good things in store for you and He wants to bless you more than you want Him to bless you. But you must obey His commandments, which is to love God and love others, and you will be amazed at the good things that start coming your way.
There is none like our God; great and mighty is He. Full of goodness and mercy. God is Love, therefore Love is God.
God is able and willing to help those who call upon Him in faith
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. God can and is willing to make a way when there seems to be no way. He is Almighty and can open doors that no man can shut, He can shut doors that no man can open.
I was told I have fibromyalgia, I am in constant pain, with stiffness, and sleep disorder. I also have PTSD. I have been married to a wonderful man for 3 years now. We are best friends, our marriage is heaven on earth. He loves me unconditionally. I love him with all my heart.
