Believing God for a Miracle

Standard

Devotion:  Luke 1:13-17

For what miracle are you praying?  I’ve heard pastors stand up in the pulpit and declare miracles to be a thing of the past; that we do not live in the day of miracles.  I do not believe that for one nano second.  You know why?  Because I am a living, breathing miracle of God, born out of the heart of a praying mother and father.

Georgie and Carol prayed and prayed; despite Georgie’s inability to conceive.  After years of infertility; her Christian doctor advised them to begin the adoption process.  For years they cried out to God for a child.  About nine months into the adoption process; their pastor came and laid hands upon them, agreeing with them in prayer, for their own biological child.

The Bible promises; “a cord of three strands is not easily broken”. At the end of nine months of paper work and preparing to adopt; Georgie became pregnant.  She carried me on one side of her divided womb and 2 1/2 years later, she conceived again and carried my sister on the other side.  What the doctor had labeled impossible, God called possible.

Nine months later, through caesarean section, a baby girl named Elizabeth Setzer Williams was born.  Now you know why I believe miracles still happen.

I so love the story of Elizabeth and Zacharias found in this first chapter of Luke.  God performed a miracle in these two old bodies and revived their ability to impregnate and conceive.

Let me ask you again; “For what miracle are you praying?”  You may have been praying for that miracle, for what seems like forever.  I want to encourage you this day to never give up.  Do not lose heart or hope.  God has heard your prayer, believe Him for your miracle.  Only God knows if you will be able to say as Elizabeth in Luke 1:26; “Thus the Lord has done for me in the days when He looked on me, to take away my reproach among people.”  

Prayer in Motion:

Oh Lord my God, You know the miracle I’ve been praying for these many years.  You still hear my cries for Your Divine intervention.  I need a miracle.  I believe You still perform miracles.  I wait with great hope and expectation.  I love and trust You Jesus to bring about this miracle in Your timing and in Your way.  Thank You Lord.  In Jesus Name.  Amen
