Your Miracle is Closer Than You Think
Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like you’ve been waiting forever for your miracle to happen? It could be a breakthrough in your career, a healing in your body, or a restoration in a relationship. It’s easy to lose hope and give up on the possibility of it ever happening. But what if I told you that your miracle is closer than you think?
It’s natural to feel like our prayers are going unanswered when we don’t see immediate results. We live in a world that values instant gratification and quick solutions, but God operates on a different timeline. Sometimes our miracle may take longer than we expect, but that doesn’t mean it’s not coming.
In the Bible, we see countless examples of people who received their miracle after waiting for what felt like an eternity. Abraham and Sarah waited until they were in their nineties before having a child, yet God fulfilled His promise to them. The Israelites spent 40 years in the wilderness before entering the Promised Land, but God was with them every step of the way.
The story of Lazarus in John 11 is another example of a miracle that took longer than expected. When Lazarus fell ill, his sisters Mary and Martha sent word to Jesus, who they knew could heal him. But Jesus didn’t come right away; He waited two more days before making His way to Bethany. By the time He arrived, Lazarus had been dead for four days. But Jesus didn’t let that stop Him. He called Lazarus out of the tomb and brought him back to life.
What if Jesus had come earlier and healed Lazarus before he died? The miracle wouldn’t have been as powerful or significant. Sometimes, God allows us to go through difficult situations so that when He finally shows up, we know it was all Him.
So how do we know that our miracle is closer than we think? We need to have faith and trust that God is working behind the scenes. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” We may not see any progress or change, but that doesn’t mean God isn’t working on our behalf.
We also need to keep praying and believing. James 5:16 says, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Even when it feels like our prayers are going unanswered, we need to keep bringing our requests before God and trusting that He will answer in His time.
Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Waiting can be difficult, but when we trust in God’s timing, we can rest in the knowledge that He knows what’s best for us.
Your miracle is closer than you think. Keep the faith, keep praying, and be patient. God is working behind the scenes, and when the time is right, He will bring your miracle to pass. Remember, “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). Keep trusting in Him and watch as your miracle unfolds before your eyes.
