Are You Using What You Have?


And this is the confidence which we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of him.  — 1 John 5:14-15

There are two important examples of miracles  by Jesus.

When Jesus performed the miracle in Cana, He turned the water into wine.

When He performed the multiplication of the bread and fish, He used the loaves and fish offered by a boy.

Jesus created miracles from what was there.

Do you want miracles to happen in your life?  What do you have that you can use?

If you would  like a healthy relationship with everyone in your life, use what you have.  Use your time to spend with them.  Use your presence and make them feel that they are valued.  Invest in your relationships because great relationships do not just happen.  You have to create them and continuously put in the effort to make them work.

If you want a more prosperous life, use what you have.  Use your talent.  Use your knowledge.  Work with what you have.  Practice and invest hours to hone and master your craft.  Multiply your income by putting your eggs in various baskets, so to speak.  Diversify your investments.  

Use the resources available to you to turn your dreams into reality.  

The other thing that Jesus did to make miracles happen is that He prayed for it.  He prayed and asked the Heavenly Father to grant Him the miracles that He needed at the moment.

Miracles happen every day.  Big, majestic, supernatural miracles like the rising of the sun, people being healed from terminal diseases and permanent disabilities, being able to wake up and get through another day no matter how tough it may be.

However, there are miracles we can deliberately make happen.  We can create the life we have always wanted no matter how impossible they may seem by human standard.  The good news is that you don’t need magic  to make them happen.  You can follow Jesus’ simple ways and create miracles; use what you have and pray for them.  

Once you have done everything from your end, let go and let God take charge.  

Do what you can possibly do and let God step in to do what you cannot.  When you pray, ask God for the impossible. 

Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought.  

James 1:6
