SPECTACULAR MIRACLE IS POSSIBLE
Main text: John 4:50 – “Jesus saith unto him, go thy way, thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him and he went his way”
1 Kings 18:38 – “Then therefore of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifices… and it licked up the water that was in the trench”
In today’s devotional, two key words are crucial and necessary to explain. They are spectacular and miracle. The word ‘spectacular’ mean amazing or worthy of special notice. It could also mean remarkably different from others. ‘Miracle’ is a divine intervention by God to solve the problem of mankind.
The topic of today “spectacular miracle is possible” when viewed from the explanation of the two key words implies that God is not limited. He can use any means or method to solve the problem of man. God moves in a mysterious way (John 4:46-56). The healing of the Noble man’s son is a case study of one of the unique miracles of Jesus.
The noble man from Capernaum requested that Jesus should go down with him and heal his son who was at the point of death. Jesus said to him “unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.” The man pleaded, Sir Come down before my child dies. Jesus answered him saying “Go, your son will live”. The man believed Jesus and went away. On his way home, one of his servants met him and told him that his son had already recovered.
On inquiry, he discovered that the child recovered on the seventh hour, exactly the time Jesus informed him that his son had been healed.
When we are faced with challenges, critical needs in marriages, business settings, politics etc. let us believe that Jesus is the savior who can manifest any spectacular miracle in our situations.
DON’T RUN AFTER SIGNS AND WONDERS, THEY WILL FOLLOW YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST. SO TO HAVE FAITH IS TO BE FAR-SIGHTED
Prayer: I command my life to carry spectacular miracles from now in Jesus’ name. AmenBY BISHOP NGOZI DURUEKE (HE REIGNS CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL) To send your testimony, write us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
