Bible Readings: Luke 7:11-15
I love miracles!
Anyone who have tasted of God’s goodness knows that He is full of miraculous acts.
Jesus is full of compassion.
When He passes by this town and heard the cry of the widow who has turned childless and his heart could not hold it.
This poor widow lost the only thing that mattered to her.
Her tears were deep
Her yearnings were painful
But that day the Lord passed by her town.
The people cried with her but only Christ understood her pain.
She was not expecting a miracle.
She was not expecting the Lord would pass by perhaps she would have invited him over.
She was not expecting him to stop and attend to her case, after all he was not told.
Maybe the widow had resigned herself to a life of depressions and endless mourning.
She wasn’t expecting anything good from attending the burial of her son.
Her son was dead. That’s all she knew!
The compassion Jesus had made him stop, walk to the casket, and deliver up a living son.
May be that situation is hopeless.
Maybe it has been declared dead,
Maybe you have a throng of comforters like the widow.
I am saying Jesus is passing by. Amen
He is passing by you reading this now.
If He could for this widow who didn’t even invite him over, He would do it for you by His mercies.
His compassion found her.
His healing wings touched the widow’s son.
Grace rested upon that home.
The tears of sorrows became tears of joy.
That can only be when Jesus steps in.
While I was writing this study I was smiling because I want this miracle of grace and compassion.
I want it for you who thinks it is over.
I want it for you who feels miracles don’t happen anymore.
I want it for you experiencing deadness in any form.
Jesus is the
Joy of the living
One who turn tears of sorrow to tears of joy
The turnaround of dead situations
The deliverer of good news
He would stop for your sake.
He would work that miracle.
He will deliver to you a living and breathing miracle
I pray for that someone whose case has been written off, that Jesus would step in and resurrect in this name.
I don’t know how overwhelmed that widow would have felt having Jesus deliver her son to her alive. I know rejoicing would be an understatement.
I invite you to accept this invitation.
1. What situation appears dead or unresovable in your life right now?
2. Write it down and Take it to the Lord in prayer.
3. Three powerful scriptures when you experience deadness. Meditate and write them outProverbs 4:20-22, John 10:10 and John 7:38
Dear Jesus, thank you for this privilege to partake of your wondrous acts. I accept of this invitation to live a life of miracles. I see the wonderful gift of miracles you shower upon my life. Dear Jesus touch me and flood me with a life of unusual miracles in Jesus name. Step into my case and address issues that overwhelm my heart. Let your compassion never cease over my life in Jesus name. Amen
