Did you know that miracles should be a normal part of the believer’s life? They are not whims of God or divine “accidents.” Once we understand how miracles happen, we can move into a greater dimension of abundant life for ourselves and for others.
Therefore, He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?Galatians 3:5
In this brief verse the key to miracles is revealed. God works miracles in our midst according to our “hearing of faith.” In other words, the only requirement for miracles is that we hear God in faith. That seems easy enough. We were created to hear God.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.John 10:27
Man was created with “supernatural” ability. It was the ability to think God’s thoughts, speak God’s words and do God’s works. It was dominion over God’s creation. It all was to flow from hearing Him while in fellowship with Him. What we today call supernatural was actually meant to be natural (normal).
Sin in humanity changed all of that. But Jesus came to restore man to his intended purpose. Walking in the supernatural should be “natural” for believers. We should be hearing God and acting accordingly.
Miracles are simply God’s love touching man’s need. They can be obvious and spectacular, or they can be quiet and unseen by others. The supernatural is not always spectacular. But when we hear God, declare His Word and act on what He shows us, miracles will follow.
You must believe that miracles are for you. Don’t believe that miracles are only for the gifted few. You can begin to have a miracle mindset today. Spend time with Him giving thanks for everything you have. Envision the challenges in your life and see them resolved, restored and healed. Begin to speak words of life and blessing over your life, your family, your job and your future. Start where you have to start but begin to consider your life a miracle life.
Expect the unexpected. Expect to be blessed. Expect to be healed. Expect favor. Expect relationships to be restored. God is speaking these things every minute of every day. You simply must choose to hear Him.
