Matthew 9:18-19, 23-25
18 While He spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped Him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay Thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did His disciples.
23 And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed Him to scorn.
25 But when the people were put forth, He went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
Today at Bible study, we had some discussions about miracles. Have we gotten so accustom to the power of our Lord, we do not recognize and acknowledge miracles for what the are?
Approach the Throne of the Most High with boldness! We know nothing is too “big” for the Lord to handle, but do we underestimate God’s attention to detail and neglect to bring matters before Him, assuming they are too small or insignificant for His attention?
Our Lord Jesus cares for us. He is relational. He knows how many hairs are on our heads, how much more personal could the Lord of all Creation be?
If our Father knows what we want and need, why pray then? Why ask? When we ask for something , there is a sense of dependency. We are showing reliance on Him to provide whatever it is. Also, we are seeking His will, so when we make a request, let’s ask in a way that aligns with what He decides is best for us rather than simply based on our own desires.
Ask EXPECTING and BELIEVING as this man in Matthew did. Show confidence in the power of the Most High to hear and handle whatever you bring before Him!
Thank You for being ALL- Powerful
You are Truth
We know that we can come before You with anything
You know us, Creator
Please give us a desire to know You more
We love, Lord
Because You first loved us !
Reveal Your miracles, Father
May we not overlook every blessing in our lives
We don’t want to take anything for granted, Lord
As children of the King, we can easily adapt to our many blessings
And adapt an attitude of entitlement
We rebuke that, Father
And pray for realization and appreciation for everything You do for us
Every breath is a gift from You, O God
An opportunity to give You praise!
In the Name of Jesus
Praise the Name of Jesus
I Will Call Upon the Lord
