Miraculous Answers to Prayer. August 31 2020.
“” Call on Me, and I will answer you. I will tell you wonderful and marvellous things that you know nothing about.” Jeremiah 33:3. GNT.
Yesterday we looked at when God is silent. You ask Him to show up and you just do not see Him in anything. Today, we will look at the opposite.When we pray God answers in such a miraculous way that you know this has to be Him at work. One of these examples for me has to do with our adoption of Alicia from Ecuador. When we adopted her we were told by Canadian officials that she would never become a Canadian citizen. The reason for this was because she is special needs. Canada has a free health care system and education system, because of this they do not allow special needs children into Canada permanently because of the cost factor. When we adopted her we felt very strongly that God was telling us to go ahead and offer hope to this child, and He would take care of the details. We also thought that by the time we retired from being missionaries it would not really matter. Then due to unseen circumstances we returned home to Canada just 2 short years after adopting her. . We decided to apply for citizenship for her as we felt we had nothing to loose and we had God on our side. So we applied and the asked contacts all around the world to pray that she would be accepted. Pray we did for seven long months. Then one day we had a parcel in the mail from the government. They had accepted Alicia and she was now a Canadian citizen entitled to all that entailed. God miraculously showed us that He was God. To this day we are told that it should never have happened, and yet God. Why do we struggle so much in praying and believing that our God wants to show us great and marvellous things? Help me to trust more O Lord.
God encouraged Jeremiah to pray with the promise that He would do great and mighty things which he would not know.The promise of God are certain,, but He still calls on His children to actuality those promises through prayer. God wants to be involved in people’s lives, to be asked for help. People must call upon Him so that He can answer them.
🙏 Father God forgive our unbelief and our callousness in not asking You to do the great and marvellous things that only You can do. So often we think that we do not need to bother asking and yet that is exactly what You want us to do. Father make me a person totally devoted to prayer and totally devoted to You. It is not about me but it is all about You. Thank You Lord Jesus for showing and leading the way. It is in Your name that I pray.
