(1) HE is no respecter of persons. He uses people like David, a shepherd boy; Moses, a man who stuttered; Simon Peter and Andrew, mere fishermen; Matthew, a tax collector; Lydia, a woman with a retail business; Mary, the mother of Jesus, a teenager; Daniel, a dreamer. Now add your name to the list. No one is excluded. I’m adding my name to the list; Bess, a simple helper.
(2) HE answers all sorts of prayers. In Matthew 8, Jesus said to the leper, “I am willing; be cleansed.” He rebukes the winds and calms the sea. And to the Centurion, Jesus said, “I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel." In Matthew 9, Jesus said to the man sick of the palsy, “Arise and walk." For what are you praying? HE can do anything. I’m praying for the completion of a difficult journey. Add your prayer request. HE’S the same yesterday, today, and in all the tomorrows.
(3) HE performs all types of miracles. In Matthew 8, HE healed a leper and a demon-possessed man, a paralyzed servant, and a fevered mother, and HE calmed a great tempest. In Matthew 9, Jesus healed a paralytic, raised a dead daughter, healed a woman with an issue of blood, and opened the eyes of a blind man. As you reflect on your past miracles, praise HIM. And, whatever your miracle need is today, pray, believe; and rest assured that God has a wonderful answer for you. I’ve already turned in my miracle request. What a comfort to know and love our God.
WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE. He can hear our prayers and answer them. He can send a miracle our way from His throne room. He is our awesome LORD. Give Him praise today! I am praising Him right now. HE is so worthy of our praise.
