I MUST BELIEVE!
As we travel into a new day, let us bring hope along the way. Looking back to see goodness and mercy that follows us. The Bible is a book of miracles. Lives that have been changed and never to go back to wrong thinking.
There is power in the name of Jesus and power in words! God created miracles years ago.
Read this story:
Luke 5 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Calls His First Disciples
5 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. 2 He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”
5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”
6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.
Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.
Still happen today. I've talked with many people and heard stories of God moving mountains from lives. Doctor reports that were turned around and people believing big in life. We can not loose hope or take our eyes off of God. The Bible verses above speaks of men who fished, but one word from Jesus and the fish suddenly starting appearing. One story of a blind man who believed and then he could see. One story of my own life, I was not able to have kids and then a few years later after I was prayed for, and became pregnant with Tracy. Then a couple years later Chad. I could go on and on with miracles that happen that I've seen or heard about in life. Just open the Bible and read even more.
Believing big and watching Jesus turn things around for us. Maybe it's health, money, job, food and the list goes on, but God is still moving on your behalf and mine. He wants the best and he wants us to trust him in all areas of life. Maybe you need someone to hold for you to see your miracle and my prayers are right with the readers of my blog. I don't know your story or your need but God does. He has brought you to this page to know you are connected to him.
What do you need today? Don't be scared to ask God largely for your miracle or someone you love. Hold on by faith and know that God is still bigger than anything we face. I won't stop believing or leaning toward God. I might not understand it all, but I believe the story of the boat above the the fish that came and it was a miracle. I will join you in prayers of today and believing big.
I do also realize that not all our prayers are answered the way we want. Sometimes a huge mountain is before us and it takes time to get an answer. I've been there too and I stopped believing at points in my life, but God never left me, I left him. It wasn't God's fault, but my own choices that created a bigger issue. I choose daily to trust God in all things. My husband Terry came through his knee replacement surgery just fine. He was walking the next day and is coming home today. So in three days, the things I thought might happen, didn't happen at all. I had to trust God and the outcome.
We are human and our minds go to logic sometimes and even fear. There is no need to fear the one who created us in the first place and hold tight to his power of love. Yes, somethings need to pass from our thoughts and see the good even in the bad. Purpose this a great day!
