So many times we are temped to believe that our circumstances are impossible since they haven’t changed for a long time. But in our desperation we don’t have to worry the correct way to reach out to God, we must simply reach out to Him in faith. As He can change what seems unchangeable giving you purpose and hope.
“Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well. And the woman was healed at that moment.” ~ Matthew 9:22
Maybe right now do you desperately need a miracle! Then I encourage you to believe it, confess it and receive it! But you think “Oh, I just don’t know if I can do that.” Yes, you can! You’ve already done it once. If you have made Jesus the Lord of our life, you believed, confessed and received the greatest miracle in the universe, the miracle of a reborn spirit! Every other miracle you receive will come in exactly the same way.
How do you receive your miracle, you start by simply believing what God’s Word says concerning your area of need, by letting that Word change your heart and mind.
A lot of people try to skip that step. They try to believe for a miracle without spending enough time in the Word to change their heart and mind. They just want to confess it with their mouths and have it instantly appear. But that won’t happen. It’s what we believe in our hearts and say with our mouths that we receive. To have faith means that you act and live like it is true. Having faith goes beyond logical proof. Faith goes beyond what you can see, and even beyond what you can think. Faith requires you to walk with God, as faith keeps your dreams alive, gives you hope for your future, and faith keeps your expectations achievable.
If you don’t have enough faith yet to believe for the miracle you need, then you can get it. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Good News about Christ” (Romans 10:17). So start filling the ears of your heart with the Word until faith for your miracle is born inside of you. That’s what the woman did in this story in the Bible she had the issue of blood. But she believed in her heart that Jesus would heal her. Then she spoke her faith out loud. Then she acted on that faith—and she received her miracle.
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

Thank you so much for this Fran.. I have been struggling so lately to have faith and hold on to it.. I can say the words out loud, but my heart was not feeling it.. The answer is simple, I need to get back into the word, reading and studying every day.. I have lost that and it is such an important part of the whole process.. Love you girl and praying for peace in your heart..
I find that if I don’t stay in His word that I can’t stand on it …. so I dig and dig until I have peace and find rest in His knowing what is best for me! He is always teaching us no matter what we are going through good or bad times… there is a lesson to learn! Praying for you sis always I hope you know that I feel as though you are my bestest friend and not a day goes by I don’t lift you up and your family! God bless you Sis! ❤
Thank you for writing this today, Fran. I have been praying/believing for healing of a chronic skin condition and Jehovah Rapha is taking His time but it is happening. Instant healing is amazing, but faith is made stronger when the process takes longer. Bless you in your journey of healing and wholeness!
God bless you Vera…. praying for you daily.. I hope you know that!!! Your faithfulness has been seen by our Father… He hears our prayers!!! Don’t give up sis! God bless you!
