“It Doesn’t Make Sense!”
When you look through the Bible we see that there were many miracles that were performed and many were initiated after ACTS of obedience. It is important to note how acts of obedience are tied to miracles and supernatural moves of God. I believe that miracles are always happening everyday but we just have to learn to be obedient in order to see how they are happening everyday. Sometimes, God asks us to do something out of the ordinary and when you try to rationalize what God is thinking it may seem like you heard incorrectly because sometimes He requests us to do things that don’t make any sense.
1 Corinthians 2:16
For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
Have you ever been in a situation where you heard in your spirit that you must do something but you tried to rationalize it away thinking that you weren’t hearing properly and probably rebuked the suggestion thinking it’s not of God when really it’s the Holy Spirit telling you to do something? I have been there many times and when you think about it, a lot of things God asks of us to do don’t always make sense, but when we learn to obey Him in the thing that sounds ridiculous, we see amazing things happen.
Think about it, if Moses didn’t stretch out his rod over the Red Sea as God had commanded him to, the Bible would have ended at Exodus with Pharoah probably killing off the Jews and taking many of them back into captivity had Moses decided to ignore the voice of God to do something that didn’t make sense.The future of Israel was on the other side of the Red Sea and that future could have been extinguished at the shoreline had Moses said “But God this doesn’t make any sense!”.
What we hope to achieve in this life is tied to how much we move and do things that don’t make any sense to anyone.
The greatest inventions such as the Thomas Edison’s light bulb and the airplane that could fly by the Wright brothers were all invented at a time where people thought such things cannot be because they have never seen such things before and they didn’t make any sense. Just because you haven’t seen a miracle happen doesn’t mean miracles don’t or won’t happen. I think that if we keep trying to do things in our own might and power, we leave no room for the unexpected. The unexpected is cultivated by acts of obedience. When you decide to just do something different even when faced with the threat of ridicule and unbelief, you step into the Faith Zone that carries you towards the Miracle Zone and God always brings PROVISION for the VISION when you decide to walk in His Will.
It is possible to walk everyday in the Miracle zone if you allow yourself to walk in God’s Will. Also consider that people are stimulated by shock value and most of the time it’s negative. Miracles should be our shock value daily because when they are from God they are always positive. We no longer pursue miracles because we live in a state of mind that thinks everything that has been done has already been done before. I’m here to tell you…there are greater things yet to come if you believe for it. I personally want to see things I’ve never seen before, don’t you? Like Moses, stretch out your faith and focus on seeing greater miracles than these and remember that you can only see a miracle when you ACT in Obedience. Stop ignoring the ridiculous and go for it. You have to do your part by acting on your faith rather than sitting there waiting for it to happen. Miracles are activated by ACTION. Whose action you ask? Yours! so MOVE! Moses performed an action by stretching out his rod and the Red Sea Divided, so you have to do the same and act by faith to see things happen. This message isn’t just for you only, because I feel that it is also for me as well. So I’ll step out and do different things in pursuit of my miracles in my life. Each person has a portion of miracles that are specifically assigned and designed by God for their destiny and are only activated by the power of your faith in action, so think about what you have to do in order to see your portion manifest itself today, Amen!
I have a song from the Prince of Egypt Cartoon that came to mind when I wrote this up called When You Believe performed by Mariah Carey and the late Whitney Houston. May this song minister to you today. God bless you everybody!
Scriptures to Meditate
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.
“When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Show a miracle for yourselves,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and cast it before Pharaoh, and let it become a serpent.’”
Galatians 3:4- (NKJV)
4 Have you suffered so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?
5 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?— 6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.
1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
