Got Questions?

January 6, 2009

Have something wrong in your life? We all do. We all have things that are not going the right way and we all have crisis in our lives. Maybe things aren’t going well at work, someone you know has cancer, or someone you are close to struggles with depression.

When hard times come into our lives most people will cry out to God. No matter where you are in the world it is almost universal. Whether you are a Christian that believes in Jesus or you’re someone who doesn’t believe in anything, when things hit rock bottom most likely you will cry out for God.

I want to throw out a question. After crying out “Oh God help me!” how do you react when God answers the “wrong” way? What do you do when God provides the “wrong” miracle? Do you get upset, angry or sad? Do you give up on your faith? Is it possible to receive the “wrong” answer or miracle?

God wants to provide miracles. The question is, are we ready for the miracles that he is ready to provide? There is a difference between what we desire and what God desires. Let me explain…sometimes we need money and ask God to provide the money. And we wait and wait while all along there is a job that we could do to provide the money. We ask God to bring us out of depression, when the answer is in forgiving the person we are holding bitterness against. Or maybe we are asking a healing for someone who has a deathly disease, but God’s answer for that person is to come to see Him.

A key to unlocking miracles or answers from God is to put your whole faith in Jesus and then He will provide the miracle that you “really” need.

We must be willing to completely give ourselves over to God and accept the answers and miracles that He is providing.

    Awesome post Mr. Davis! Very, very true. We spend too much time trying to “find God’s will” because our circumstances are not what we think they should be, instead of walking in God’s will which is spelled out in 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18, “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
