TOPIC FOR TODAY: 27-8-21: Need a miracle 1?

By Pastor E. A Adeboye, President, Christ the Redeemer’s Ministries.


MEMORISE: “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” – (Matthew 11:29)

READ: Matthew 11:28-29 (KJV)
28. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Ever since the fall of man which led to the ground being cursed for his sake, it has become a matter of divine intervention for him to prosper. Only try divine intervention – also known as miracles, can man prosper with ease. In today’s bible reading, Samaria was under siege and people could not go out to farm or trade. This resulted in a great famine, which became so severe that people started killing their children for food. The situation brought desperation for a miracle in the city of Samaria.

The undeniable truth is that everyone needs a miracle at one time or another – whether physical, psychological, material, financial or even more importantly, spiritual. King David knew this and wrote “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).

Who is your shepherd? If the Lord is indeed your Shepherd, then you are a candidate for miracles. This Lord is the owner of the cattle upon a thousand hills, according to Psalm 50:10-11: For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.

As we read in the Bible text today, the people of Samaria desperately needed a miracle and they were so blessed that a prophet lived in their midst. The prophet declared the word of God but it was too good for a member of the king’s cabinet to believe and this was to his peril.

We need to have faith in God when we are in need of divine intervention (a miracle). The Bible says in (2 Chronicles 20:20): … Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

Beloved, do you need a miracle? Fulfil God’s conditions by obeying all His commandments which include accepting Jesus Christ as your Saviour, living holy, faithful payment of your tithes, cheerful giving of offerings, honouring Him (God) with your first fruits and so on. Trust God for your all-round blessing and you will surely see His glory.

PRAYER POINT: Father, please send me miracles to meet all my needs, according to Your riches in glory, in the mighty name of Jesus.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 143-145


1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring:
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, Standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Saviour;
Standing, Standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail
By the living word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

3. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

4. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call,
Resting in my Saviour as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

Beloved Reader, the best way to enjoy best of God is to make Jesus Christ your personal Lord & Saviour.  And remember! John 3:3 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless ye are born again, ye cannot see the kingdom of God.”

If you are ready to give your life to Christ Jesus, please pray the displayed prayer below in faith:

Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I confess all my sin, have mercy on me, forgive me all my sin. Lord Jesus come into my life. I accept You as my Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe in my heart You died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus name Amen.

Beware! This Scripture: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold,” Matt 24:12, is being fulfilled in our time. Our prayer is: any power or any problem that will kill our love for God, blood of Jesus will destroy and flush them away from us, in Jesus name.

Good Day, we cherish your presence here. Thank you for your comments, observations, feedbacks and time spent on this platform.

Beloved! We are in perilous time when kidnappings, banditry and other vices have become daily occurrences. But the Lord is saying, fear not, be bold & be courageous!

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you shall not be a victim to whatever calamity flying around by day and by night, in the name of Jesus, Amen!
