DO YOU NEED A MIRACLE AND HOW TO RECEIVE IT? – 4.11.2021
Enter today with Eagerness and Expectancy – Meeting God and Experiencing His Goodness
Let’s take a look who we are dealing with…..
God reveals in His word in (Colossians 1:17) that HE always existed and sustains everything that currently exists – (Genesis 1:1) He created everything out of nothing for himself – (Colossians 1:16). For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. – (Psalm 24:1–2) The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it.- and he rules it all – (Psalm 29:10). There is nothing he doesn’t understand, and he is never surprised. His wisdom and knowledge have no limit – (Psalm 147:5), and he is able to do anything but fail (Matthew 19:26) Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

LB 20 Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.
‘Expectancy’ in the Bible
Psalm 85:8 AMP
I will hear [with expectant hope] what God the Lord will say, For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones—But let them not turn again to folly.

Do this, knowing that this is a critical time. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ].
Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah).
