To every believer, to everyone that knows God, keep in your mind that God is our God. Leviticus chapter 26 and 27 the theme that is established is God repeating, “I am the lord your God.” Over and over again in this chapters God references by stating or indicating it, “I am the lord your God”.
12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.
13 I am the Lord your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.
This is vital because to see God move in your life you must know God is your God. And that God is saying to you, “I am the lord you’re God”. Knowing this is what causes you to have faith. The text in Matthew displays this theme. There are three miracles noted in the text of Matthew.
- A miracle that required faith- All that is needed for this miracle is faith approaching God. Multitudes simply came and brought their problems.
Relating to our life- This simple act of going to Jesus with our problem is FAITH. Knowing without evidence that he can solve ANY PROBLEM.
Actions to take: Find a place alone to pray seek God, pray at altar in church, and just seek a place God is moving.
30And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
- A miracle that required great faith- A woman came to God with her problem. This was not enough like our prior faith miracle. She cries out to Jesus multiple times before he acknowledges her. Before Jesus acknowledges her, she presses through the disciples and gets to Jesus worshiping him asking for help. Then Jesus tells her he can’t help her, but this woman understood who Jesus was. Jesus was her savior and she knew without evidence he can solve any problem, once again this is faith. Here though this is great faith because she knew he would do it despite Jesus saying he can’t help her.
Relating to our life- Great faith is MORE than getting to God. Great faith is pressing through external distractions, she cried continuously worshipping, and she trusted God could do it despite the delay.
Actions to take: Whatever you normally do for God, do more or increase it. If you pray once a day pray twice, if you fast a hour then fast for a hour and a half, if you normally don’t go to altar or sing do that which you don’t. Don’t let external distractions your fear, pride, finance, friends, or time keep you away from consistently seeking God until God does it.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith:
- A miracle done by obedience- Jesus required the multitude to sit as the multitude was hungry and there was only a small amount of food. After sitting a miracle was performed. All that was needed in this miracle was adhering God’s instructions.
Relating to our life-When God gives you instructions or commands, do it and get ready. You have to get ready because you are aligning yourself for God to do something great in your life.
Actions to take: Hear God whether by your pastor, bishop, personal bible reading, at altar, or prayer and obey to see God move.
35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
To see God move in your life, get in God’s presence
