Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come (Psalm 102:13).
If you’ve been praying and desiring a certain change in your life, you can decide you want that change TODAY, and it will happen. Many suffer for long because they don’t know it’s their responsibility, not God’s, to effect the changes they desire in their lives.
Let’s take the story of Hannah in the Old Testament as a case study. She had been married to Elkanah for several years without a child, and must have been hoping this would change someday, but it didn’t. One day, she got tired of the situation and made up her mind for a miracle. She said to herself, “It’s today or never!” Then she went into the house of the Lord and fell on her face before God and brought forth her case. While she was there, Eli the high priest observed her lips moving but didn’t hear any words coming out of her mouth. So he thought she was drunk and rebuked her, saying, “Woman, are you not tired of your drunkenness?” (1 Samuel 1:13-14).
“Sir, I’m not drunk; I’m just pouring out my heart before the Lord,” she replied (1 Samuel 1:15). We’ve always thought all Hannah did was make a vow to God, but she did more; she argued her case before God. She petitioned God and gave Him strong reasons why she must have a child. Then the high priest answered and said to her, “Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy PETITION that thou hast asked of him” (1 Samuel 1:17). Afterwards, Hannah conceived, gave birth to a son and named him Samuel (1 Samuel 1:20).
“Bring forth your strong reasons,” that’s what the Lord says in Isaiah 41:21. Hannah did and got the petition she asked of Him. What is that miracle you desire? Present your case before the Lord. If it’s concerning your health, 1 Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” This is your evidence; stand your ground on it as the basis for which sickness and diseases cannot thrive in your body, and then take hold of your miracle today!
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for the revelation of your Word to my spirit today, letting me know I can set the time for my own miracle! By faith, I’ve taken a hold of all the wonderful blessings you’ve made available to me in Christ, and I walk in the full manifestation of these blessings in my job, health, finances and family today, in the Name of Jesus! Amen.
