12/21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
John 14:12 (NKJV)
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
This scripture always challenges me. When you read the miracles that Jesus did, it is a seriously impressive list! He turned water into wine, He fed an estimated 15,000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, He opened blind eyes, He made the deaf hear, and let’s not forget, He raised people from the dead!! In this scripture, Jesus says that we as Christians will do greater works than what He did! I believe the reason we don’t see miracles like this is because we disqualify ourselves. Most of us still believe God does miracles, but we just don’t think God can use us to be the catalyst for a miracle. We think of all the areas that we come up short and for some reason, we think miracle working power can only flow through perfect people. That’s just not the case.
All throughout the Bible, and to this day, God uses imperfect people to do extraordinary things!
God wants to use you to pray for people. He wants you to see miracles happen in your life and others around you. Sometimes I have people ask me, “what if I pray for them and they don’t get their miracle?” I learned a long time ago that the only thing I can do is pray and believe. The miracle part is completely up to God.
Greater works than these…
Let’s take the limits off of ourselves and off of our God!
Jesus, use me today to pray for someone in my life. Let me see miracles happen, not just in my life, but in my friends, family, and co-workers lives. Increase my faith to believe you for greater and greater things. Amen.
