POSITIONED IN 2020 FOR MIRACULOUS MANIFESTATIONS
'And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.' - Matthew 13:58 NIV
There is a Bible verse that paints a picture of God looking throughout the Earth to strengthen the hearts of those who are fully committed to Him (2 Chronicles 16:9). The same God who expressed to Moses He had seen the misery of His people, and responded to Jesus' plea in the Garden of Gethsemane by sending ministering angels to strengthen Him to go through with suffering on the cross, is looking at you and me to strengthen, settle, and establish us in walking by faith towards our Better Place.
The reason the woman with the Issue of blood could receive her healing because her faith positioned her by prompting her to move closer in proximity to where Jesus was to receive what she believed God could do. Keep in mind this miraculous manifestation occurred after she exhausted all she had and things got worse instead of better. Despite her depleted condition and circumstances she held out hope and belief her miracle of healing was still within her reach. She simply refused to believe her current condition would be her final state.
There are some practical strategies we can apply and practice that prompts God to look upon us with favor and manifest the miraculous allowing us to see with our eyes what is envisioned in our hearts. God wants to do more within you and through you for His glory and the good of others. Matthew 13:58 suggests Jesus wanted to do more but couldn't simply because of unbelief. Continue to believe, cultivate hope, and take action that keeps you positioned to see God fulfill what He promises and performs what He speaks in His word concerning you:
