Divine Intervention

After doing miracles for His people throughout history, now God is ready to do miracles for you!

If you need a breakthrough today, let me encourage you: Just as countless people in the Bible were delivered out of impossible situations, so can you. Our God is still in the miracle-working business!

The dictionary defines a miracle as “an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs.” Perhaps that’s what you need in some area of your life today: God’s supernatural intervention. If so, you can be confident in His power to supernaturally turn things around for you.

John 5 tells the story of a man who had been crippled for 38 years. Desperate to be healed, he longed to step into the anointed pool of Bethesda when it was stirred by angels. But the man faced a dilemma. His disability made it impossible to quickly push through the crowd and be the first one to touch the water.

Realizing he could never be healed in his own strength, the man must have felt hopeless at times. But one day Jesus came on the scene and changed everything. Seeing the man lying near the pool, the Master declared, “Rise, take up your bed, and walk” (v. 8). After 38 years of suffering, the man no longer was crippled!

We’re also told of a woman who had been severely hemorrhaging for 12 years. After spending all her money on endless doctor visits, she only got worse. However, when she saw Jesus in her town, she figured out a plan. “She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped” (Luke 8:44 NIV). Her medical condition was impossible for doctors to solve, but it was no problem for the Great Physician.

So don’t give up, my friend. Whatever you’re going through, God has a miracle for you!
