“FAITH FOR THE MIRACULOUS”
Jer 32:17 ‘Ah Lord God! Behold, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for you,
26 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying, “behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; Is anything too difficult for me?”
MESS Stay alert! I am God, the God of everything living. Is there anything I can’t do?
THE ANGEL OF THE LORD COMING TO ABRAHAM
Gen 18:14 Is anything too difficult for the Lord?
JUDGES 6 – STORY OF GIDEON
Vs 13 Then Gideon said to him, “o my Lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all his miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.”
THE CHURCH SUFFERES UNNECESSARILY FOR A LACK OF FAITH, LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ETC…
1 Cor 2:4 And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
WE REASON OUR WAY OUT OF A MIRACLE SOMETIMES THINKING WE HAVE TO WAIT.
OUR THINKING CAUSES US TO MISS GOD’S “IMMEDIATELY”!
NAS Gal 3:5 Does he then, who provides you with the spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the law, or by hearing with faith?
NLT It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ.
THE DEFINITION OF MIRACLE: AN ACT OR EVENT THAT SEEMS TO TRANSCEND OR CONTRADICT ALL KNOWN NATURAL OR SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND IS USUALLY THOUGHT TO BE SUPERNATURAL IN ORIGIN.
MIRACLES ARE THE MANIFESTATION OF THE GLORY OF GOD… A RELEASE OF HIS ABILITY ON OUR BEHALF
Ex. John 2 WATER TO WINE…
Ex. Mark 5 WOMAN – “MADE A DEMAND ON HIS ABILITY”

MAN WITH DEMON POSSESSED BOY!
Mark 9:23 and Jesus said to him, “if you can? All things are possible to him who believes.”
THIS STATEMENT PUTS A BELIEVER IN THE PLACE WITH GOD!
SAME STORY IN Matt 17:20 And He *said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
UNLIMITED FAITH TAPS INTO A LIMITLESS GOD.
THE ANGEL GABRIEL APPEARING TO MARY.
Luke 1:37 For nothing will be impossible with God.”
38 And Mary said, “behold, the bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.”
45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”
