Behold I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of Hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion”. The word of the Lord according to Isaiah 8 vs. 18.
Brethren in this month of Fruitfulness, God will do something wonderful in your life, in your family in the name of Jesus.
I chose to start today’s article with this Bible quotation to lift up our faith that once you are in Christ you are a candidate for wonders. Better put, you are on the waiting list for a miracle.
This morning, I begin with the cheerful news of a lady in my singles group, who rushed out to me last Sunday as I arrived the church saying, “ God has done it. My miracle is here”. I didn’t need to ask her to give details. Here is a lady who is well over 40 years and has remained single but a very dedicated worker in the church. She told me that the proposal for marriage has been made and in a matter of months, the marriage will take place.
Why have I chosen to start with this testimony? I know there are many out there praying for their daughters or sons to get married just as there are several women waiting on the Lord for children.
There are also several waiting for healing, promotion, financial blessings, etc.
Many are believing God for healing while others want a change in the life of a child whose behavior has become a source of sorrow.
Don’t give up. You are for signs and wonders. The challenge you are going through should not make you lose confidence in yourself. Once you lose confidence in yourself, all is lost because you will be unable to pray, everyone around you will seem like an enemy and in the process your helpers might by pass you.
Bear in mind that sometimes, we may have challenges for us to testify to signs and wonders. In other instances, wonders of the Lord manifest in our lives without challenges. That is usually by the mercy of God.
In the name of Jesus, the helper of the helpless will not by-pass you. He will meet your needs speedily.
Last Sunday also, a friend who is a single mother, whispered to me that her promotion has just been announced in the official bulletin of her office.
For 12 years, this lady who is in her 50s was not promoted and she was not sacked. What has been operating in her life is the spirit of stagnation. This woman has been single because household enemies had put a wedge between her and her husband. Her in-laws simply felt she wasn’t the right person for her husband though they are legally married.
She went through a lot in pregnancy and now has a baby girl. The husband who works and lives in another city has refused to see the child who is now about four years. The only time he promised to come and see the child, he came to Lagos but he went to his family house first. Thereafter, he refused to see mother and child.
Brethren, I have told you this story so that you can imagine what this woman who is in her 50s has been going through. She caters for this child alone with irregular salary. I mean those of them who work in that particular organization are owed salaries of many months.
Household enemies placed an embargo on every aspect of her life but to the Glory of God the embargo is being removed gradually. Every reproach in your life, the Lord will turn to testimony sooner than you expect in Jesus name.
How long have you been married without children and the issue is giving you sleepless nights. Brother and Sister, you don’t need sleepless nights what you need is Jesus. Stop weeping, stop groaning, make a desperate cry unto the Lord, the Master, and he will turn your weeping into tears of joy.
Are you still in doubt that for the number of years you have waited to have children, God can give you a miracle that will make you overtake your friends?
Ask God for multiple babies and you can get it. Fear not, God can give you. It is not every woman who has multiple babies that was a patient of fertility drugs.
If you still doubt this, let’s take a look at the word of God in Habakkuk 1 vs. 5 “ Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you”.
What do you think will be going on the mind of a woman who gave birth to quadruplets after waiting for 15 years? If I imagine that, at least I’m sure of that of a Christian sister; Funmi who had a set of triplets after 8 years of waiting.
Now she looks at the children and says to herself, is this me that has been written off , now having to take care of three children at once? The babies are a wonder even to her. t
It didn’t start now. Remember the comments of Sarah when she had Isaac.
Genesis 21 vs. 7, See the comments of a marveled mummy Sarah “ And she said, who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age”.
In your own case, you have no problem with your husband but in laws are threatening you; the Lord will fight for you. In the name of Jesus, he will give you a miracle that will permanently shut the mouth of your enemies.
Brethren I refer you to the word of God in Ecclesiastes 6 vs. 8 &9, the Holy Bible New International Version “ The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride. Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger rests in the lap of fools”.
What I am saying is, refuse to be drawn into any quarrel with anyone one no matter the level of provocation. You need extra ordinary patience to deal with this kind of situation. Even if it is Spiritually revealed to you the forces behind your challenge, it is wisdom not to engage in physical struggles with anyone. If anything, you should be at your best entertaining such malevolent in-laws. This could be difficult as human beings but you must try.
Their provocation is teaching your patience and you need patience to receive from God. For their act of provocation, the Lord will give you an astonishing miracle in Jesus name.
Psalm 126 vs. 6 states “ He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him”.
What are your sheaves? They are your biological children. Do you desire to have multiple babies? Someone prayed with this passage and she had a set of twins; a boy and a girl. You can plug your faith into it and use it too.
Songs of Solomon 4 vs. 2 “ Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing; whereof everyone bear twins, and none is barren among them”.
Our emphasis in on the last part of this passage “ everyone bear twins and none is barren among them”.
In the name of Jesus for everyone that has been waiting on the Lord for a miracle, he will give your multiple miracles.
All your need do is remain steadfast, hold on to God, cry unto the Lord desperately and he will answer you with a result that will make you a wonder to many.
By the Grace of God, before this year ends, your testimony will manifest in Jesus name.
May the Lord fill your life with surprises this week in Jesus name.
