Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?” (Galatians 3:4-5)
Joel Osteen, the pastor of Lakewood Church, came from a family of great faith. When his sister was born with cerebral palsy, and the doctors said she would have mental deficiencies and wouldn’t walk, his father sought seclusion with God and prayed for days. Today Lisa has no physical or mental problems and is a minister at Lakewood.
When Joel’s mother was 48 years old, she was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. While her skin was yellow and she weighed 82 pounds, she had faith God would restore her and spoke Bible verses about healing all day long. She is cancer free and in her eighties.
Apostle Peter healed a disabled beggar at the temple gate. Acts 3:16b says, “Faith in Jesus has healed him completely.”
God works miracles among us by believing what we’ve heard—having faith that God can and will perform the miracle that we ask for.
Father, I praise you for doing more than we can ask or imagine. I’m your child by belief and faith in Jesus. I need a miracle and pray for _______________. Thank you for making it happen. I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
