is moving all over the place!
I want to share just a few of these miracles with you in hopes that it will encourage you to hold on to your faith. Encourage you to hold on to that prayer that continues to ask God to move, to save, to heal, to mend and wait expectantly for His answer.
- Baby Kellan: Given a 30% chance of surviving outside of the womb....he did! Prognosis grim once born, if he survives will need a significant stay in the NICU (most likely 2-3 months).....he went home in 1 month!!!
- Friend: diagnosed with breast cancer with a double mastectomy. After surgery pathology showed all the cancer was gone and no treatment required!
- Friend: diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer.....comfort measures given and a "chance" chemotherapy pill to maybe help......each month the cancer marker #'s are going down!!!
- My Dad: diagnosed with cancer in his mouth and jaw bone (had been there for over a year).....all the cancer is gone and no treatment required!!! His mouth was wired shut for a predicted 4-6 weeks....wires removed the week after surgery and he was given a much more comfortable band to help heal the jaw.
Mark Batterson reminds his readers in The Circle Maker that we should be asking God for crazy miracles to fulfill His purpose. When we do this, it builds our faith and it gives Him all the glory. Because when we ask for crazy miracles, it is evident to all that only God could have performed such a feat!
Now, we know that sometimes we won't see the answer this side of heaven and sometimes the answer isn't what we had planned. That's because He knows best for us and for future generations. But friends let me assure you that God is working, His hand is intricately working in your life and in mine. He wants us to have crazy faith so others can see His his work and give Him glory!
Are you needing a crazy miracle? Here are a few scriptures to meditate on while you are waiting.
Isaiah 41:10 (MSG) "I've picked you. I haven't dropped you. Don't panic. I'm with you. There's no need to fear for I'm your God. I'll give you strength. I'll help you. I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you."
Isaiah 43:2-3 (NIV) "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers; they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire; you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."
Hebrews 11 - the entire chapter is about the works of God through the faith of the believers.
If you have a prayer request, please post it and Elizabeth and I would count it a privilege to pray with you and believe with you for a miracle!
