Do Not Talk Yourself Out of a Miracle

Daily Devotional

John 9:6-7 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

Most of the miracles wrought in the Bible came only after a followed instruction? In John 2:1-12 when Mary, the mother of Jesus, came wanting Him to do something about the fact that the wine ran out at the wedding at Cana, Jesus responded by instructing the servants to fill the pitchers with water. They followed the instruction and experienced a miracle. Similarly, when the blind man in John 9 came to Jesus seeking his sight, Jesus made clay and put it on his eyes and then instructed him to go wash in the pool of Siloam. He too did as he was told and as the scripture said, “he came back seeing”. Miracles happen when you follow divine instructions.

The main takeaway from the two examples cited is that we can unlock our miracle by following divine instructions. Unfortunately some of us have, in the past, talked ourselves out of a miracle. We do that by finding excuses and coming up with reasons we should not do what we were told by God or a man of God. That was the path that Naaman was heading down, when Elisha told him to go wash in the Jordan River 7 times. He came up with reasons it was not a good idea.   He only received his miracle because his servants talked him back into doing what the man of God said.

What is the miracle you have been asking God for?  Do not talk yourself out of it. Instead be quick to do what God told you to do. You may need to restart your journey to your miracle by going back to the last instruction that He gave you and execute it.

Life Application: Hold yourself accountable to follow every instruction given to you by the Holy Spirit. Journal His instruction and air mark time to carry it out. You might also want to enlist a friend to help keep you accountable.  

Prayer: Lord, I trust in you and will follow your instructions and your direction. In Jesus name, amen.
