Don’t let your miracle pass you by

Presented by: Pastor Donna on December 31, 2017.

When we put our trust in Jesus Christ, our heavenly father provides us everything promised in the covenants. We need not beg for anything. It is in this way that we will not let our miracle pass us by.

Luke 18:35-43 New International Version (NIV)

35 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36 When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.”

38 He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

39 Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

40 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?”

“Lord, I want to see,” he replied.

42 Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” 43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.

If we do not learn to yield to the power of God and trust him as our father, then Satan will have us begging throughout our entire lives. And all the while our Father, our Abba has made every provision  so that we shouldn’t have to beg a day in our lives.

It is important for Christians to know their covenant rights so they can ask for what is rightfully theirs from God.

Take the example of the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15. We learn of the heart of the father who loved both his sons and extended them everything he had, even to the older one who was jealous of his brother.

Everything our heavenly Father has, and everything that Jesus bought and paid for through his blood belongs to you and me as his children. If only we will trust him.
