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.

I believe in miracles. I experienced a miracle in my life. It took me a long time to really understand what happened. I rarely talk about the miracle, when perhaps I should be shouting it from the rooftop. I feel that receiving a miracle is a rare occurrence. How many people survive liver cancer? It is a mystery to me how God picks someone to receive a miracle, when there are so many people with a great faith. I am grateful for receiving my miracle and still don’t understand why I was chosen.
I have been praying for our families at a time when we are thinking about our blessings, and what we are thankful for.
Many miracles happen that we don’t consider to be miracles. Sometimes we think we are lucky or that doctors heal us when it is God’s miracle. We sometimes credit our hard work when the result could have been a miracle. I prayed for you today and am very thankful to have such a wonderful sister. Blessings, Jody
