Many of us entered the year 2008 with high hopes and aspirations for things we would like God to do for us in the year 2008. Now 8 months had gone and nothing had changed in our requests. We are still waiting for the miracles to happen. Just like the events in our text of today, God still perform miracles regardless of time. As people brought their needs to Jesus Christ, we also should do the same and He will do it again. We are not to worry but to have faith that believes in the power that neither fails nor changes(Hebrews13:8). He healed, delivered and did so many miracles that brought joy and happiness to the repients at sunset.He will do all He has promised you and me despite the time of the year.
Many times I have been anxious and depressed for not getting answers to my requests but suddenly God had always showed up and granted me my requests even no matter how close I was for the need to be met expect.Few weeks ago I needed to pay my house rent not later than the 5th of the month,otherwise I will not only pay late fee but I will also be marked as someone who cannot keep to signed promises.I will lose my integrity as a christian/ Pastor which is the basis of my being approved for the apartment. By 4.50pm on the very day, some one I never discussed the problem with and we never even talk for weeks just came to give me a money order for the rent. He did not know I was in such predicament but he said God instructed him to do so. As our ever caring Father,God is able to reveal your needs to whosoever can meet it.(Ephesians 3:20)
Dear loving and all knowing Father,I thank you for being there for me even when I least expected.Please help me to trust you more and to always bring my requests to you with faith. Grant me your blessings at your time.Supply all my needs today and give me the desires of my hearts .
Thank you so much for I will rejoice at last.
