Do you believe in miracles? May I tell you about one that happened to my family?
A "miracle" is an extraordinary or unusual event this is considered to be a manifestation of Divine power.
My wife and I have been married 21 years. Since the time she was 4 years old she had suffered from "asthma" which is a respiratory disease that often arises from allergies and is characterized by difficulty in breathing, tightness of the chest and coughing. This condition is incurable and is usually treated by the use of inhalators and various other medications.
After we were married, we moved to west Texas where it's known for its notorious dust storms. It is not unusual to see a dark cloud form and within 20 minutes you are in dust so thick that you have to turn on your car lights just to see to drive. It was within this background that my wife could have died or almost died if it had not been for the miracle.
My wife, day after day, had to be propped up in bed in a fetal position just to try to breathe. Night after night, I prayed for God's healing to come to her. After months of this kind of thing going on, we were at the end of ourselves. It was at this time that we intensified our seeking of God by adding fasting along with our prayers. Within a few days, some supernatural things began to happen. It was revealed to me through prayer that Wendy's (that's my wife's name) real problem was not asthma but rather fear. There is a natural fear that is normal (like, "I can't breathe") and there is a supernatural fear that is abnormal that drives and torments people. The scriptures declare "God hath not given us the SPIRIT OF FEAR; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind" (2 Tim. 1:7). When we discovered this was Wendy's real problem I immediately resisted and rebuked this foul spirit of fear (See James 4:7). Wendy was instantly healed and delivered from fear and asthma that day. That has been almost 20 years ago now, and Wendy has remained healed.
A few weeks ago, in Kit Carson, Colorado a woman told me about her baby who at 17 months had brain damage and was partly brain dead. The baby was lifeless in the hospital with all kinds of tubes and things hooked up to it. This woman told me she got angry at God & began to curse. When she finally calmed down she told God that she was sorry and would give her child to Him if He would heal him. Immediately the lifeless child stood up in the hospital bed with all of the different tubes attached to him. This lady began to say, "Jesus has just healed my baby!" She ran and called her husband, "Jesus has just healed our baby!"
He said, "What?"
She said, "Jesus has just healed our baby!" That baby is now grown up and is a 4.0 student in college."
Why am I sharing these true stories with you? When the apostle John wrote down the true stories and miracles that Jesus had done, he said that the reason for him doing so was this: "These are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His Name" (Jn. 20:31).
Isn't it time that you started thinking about spiritual things? "Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did... and when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women" (Acts 8:5-6, 12). Have you ever considered turning to Him for the forgiveness of your sins? Accepting Him as your personal Saviour and following Him as your Lord? He loves you and wants to give you the miracle of His Salvation!
