Many Christians today often crave for Miracles in their lives and other endeavors but they fail to realize that, their are principles guiding Miracles which I refer to as “equation of miracle”.
The number one principle guiding Miracles is OBEDIENCE, so many Christians today are not obedient to the word of God. They are still found in sin. They refuse to simply carry out God’s instructions given to them.
The number two principle guiding Miracles is ACTION (taking a step of faith). A lot of times I see Christians refusing to take the steps of faith in their endeavors. Taking a step of faith simply means taking everything to God and allowing God to lead you. Therefore, for Miracles to happen :
OBEDIENCE + ACTION = MIRACLES
Let us now look into the Bible and see different people who obeyed God and take the steps of faith :
1. Joshua and the Isrealites at the wall of Jericho. (Joshua 6:1-20): If the people of Isreal and Joshua refuse to obey God’s instructions by not go roundabout the city walls of Jericho for seven days and they equally failed to take the necessary actions, I don’t think there will have been any miracle that will happened at the walls of Jericho.
2. Naaman dipping himself into the river Jordan seven times requires total obedience to the instructions given to him from Prophet Elisha and the action of going to the river Jordan to bath. 2 Kings 5:1-14
3. When the wine ran out at the marriage in Cana. It only require two things for the miracle to happen.(a) obeying the instruction, and (b) fetching water into the water pots (action). John 2:1-9,Jesus mother said in verse five that “whatsoever He saith unto you do it” (obedience) and in verse seven Jesus said “fill the water pots with water” (taking action). And the wine was produced Miraculously, Hallelujah!!!
4. What about the widow of Zarephat in the book of 1 Kings 17:9-16. For the widow to experience abundance she had to obey and take the steps of faith.
5. Even Gideon and his army of three hundred in the book of Judges 7:1-25. For them to witness the miracle they also require total obedience and taking actions of faith
Brethren in the Lord, it is not enough for you to pray, you must be obedient to God and must take actions of faith for you to encounter Miracles in your live.
Celestial hymn 527 says,
“1. Don’t be in doubt,
do not turn back, that thou dost not
be like wasted salt,
those with doubting minds,
shall not reach the throne, the holy throne,
before our father,
That is pavillioned with the radiance of rainbow,
In thine heaven above.
2. With holy heart, and with holy love,
Faith and holy expectations,
Worship the lord, God of creation,
The world doth pines, O ye brethren,
In obedience His followers do abide,
Without iota of doubt “. Amen
Finally, as you read this sermon keep this mathematical equation in your head, heart, and soul.
Obedience + Actions of faith = Miracles.
