Psalm 77:10Then I thought, “To this I will appeal:
the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
11I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12I will consider all your works
and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

As a brother who has seen multiple miracles in his life, I can testify that an important key to your next (or first) miracle is remembering what the Lord has already done.  Do we really believe the Lord parted the Red Sea for Israel to pass through?  Do we really believe our Lord raised Lazarus from the dead?  Do we believe the Lord has performed miracles for His people?  If He has done these things before He can do them again.  His power is the same now as it was then.  We remember so we can apply what was done to our own hearts and minds to condition ourselves to receive the promises.

The Lord's power is not the problem, our own impatience and faithlessness are often the problem.  Two absolutely important keys to our walk with  the Lord are faith and patience.  How much can be achieved with faith and patience?  EVERYTHING.  Mountains can be moved, trees uprooted and case into the sea, the sick healed, and all our personal problems solved with the application of faith and patience.

How do we build up our faith and strengthen our patience?  By remembering what the Lord has already done.  Open the book of remembrance in your mind and count off all of the things the Lord has done for you personally.  While this brother has seen more answered prayers and miracles than I can count, I realize that they were not for me alone.  These answered prayers and miracles now serve as a testimony to you.

What testimony?  A testimony that asks you "what does the Word of God say?"  Then tells you that Word can be trusted to the uttermost.  Here is the deal guys.  This is an all or nothing 'game' we are playing.  Either we stand on our faith or we will not stand at all.

... If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.'" .

Remember, remember, remember and give thanks.  Stand in awe of our God and what He has done.  Your faith will swell and grow as you meditate and consider the awesome things He has already done.  Try to picture in your own mind what it must have been like standing in front of the Red Sea and watching it part.  What did it really look like watching the waves of the sea crash down on the heads of the Egyptians?  These things are more real than you or me and we would be wise to lay hold of them and internalize them for our own benefit and the benefit of those you hear us.

If you do not feel that you have the strength to hold on for your own miracle then do it for those you love and those who you will bear witness to when your prayers have been answered and your miracle is complete.  We live in a faithless age and a time when many many people are hurting and in need.  People need answers, they need miracle power in their life not hype and empty promises.

What mankind needs today is the kind of power and deliverance that only our Lord can provide.  Do you need prayers answered?  So do I, and as one who has had prayers answered I can tell you our Lord can and will deliver if we will be patient and listen to His voice.  This brother who writes to you today can tell you He is the only answer.  As you read your Bibles you will see a long line of brothers who testify to you that our Lord's Word is true and He can be trusted.

Hang on, HOLD ON and fight for your answer.  Remember the answers and deliverance and miracles the Lord has done.

Listen to the voice of this nobody for one moment.  This nobody (through the Holy Spirit) points you to the same place all the laws and prophets point you:  our Lord Jesus Christ.  In Him are all the power, the might and the tender mercies and loving kindnesses we need to make it through another day in this testing ground we call life.

Hold on and remember...

grace and peace
