For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:3
I am reading Joy Haney’s How to Receive a Miracle. We often think that miracles just happen, but this isn’t true. The first thing is, in terms of tapping into the miraculous, within our faith for Jesus Christ, is that you have to have a vision of what it is you want to happen. Joy says, the miracle has to be conceived in our mind.
For the past five months, a desire has been born in my heart for a certain thing. I’ve imagined it happening, imagined the circumstances, yet, the vision isn’t clear and at times, I have to wonder whether it’s what I want to happen, or whether it is of God. I clearly want God’s perspective on what I want, so I’ve decided I need to cast down all these imaginations, wipe the slate clean, and let God give me a clearer vision of what to ask for.
I want this miracle. But I have to be willing to let it be the way God wants it rather than the way I want it to be. In the meantime, I am digging deeper into prayer, because when we come into God’s presence, He makes everything clearer.
Last night, my pastor preached on this as well, that we need God’s perspective on things. David always “enquired of the Lord” because he knew it was what God thought of things that matters. God might sometimes give us things we want that aren’t what He would choose, but I want God’s choice.
So, if you need a miracle, conceive of it. Look to God to let you know what He thinks of what it is you’re looking for. Pray for God to lead you on it. And then let it take root in your mind. Conceive and believe that it can happen! And remember that nothing is impossible with God, even things our senses would tell us can’t happen.
