Fresh Hope – 27 November 2017

Do you have a dream in your heart? Are you in need of a miracle? Do you find yourself in a situation that you need to see turned around?
Be encouraged today knowing that God is more eager to perform miracles than you are to see them.

If you and I want to see the miraculous in our lives, we must first understand that we have a part to play in our breakthrough as much as God does…

When we establish what we’re supposed to do, and then trust God to do what only He can do, you can be confident of seeing God do something incredible in and through your life.

Consider the role of a farmer… He sows the seeds, he then waits for growth, and then he goes back to work when the harvest has come.

That right there gives us a picture of how we’re supposed to work with God in order to see the supernatural in our lives.

We’re responsible for sowing seeds. We’re responsible for doing the legwork. We’re responsible for creating an environment that is conducive to growth. And once we’ve done what we’re capable of doing, we can then rest and allow God to do what we’re incapable of doing, which is bringing about the growth and change.

But also note that your work doesn’t end there… You must then make preparations for the harvest.

You see, many people only take care of one area. They either sow seeds that they aren’t prepared to handle once they’ve sprouted, while others are waiting on a harvest that they haven’t sown seeds for.

If today, we can recognise that God is looking for us to take care of the before and after, we then give Him something to work with in the middle.

You will be amazed at what happens in your life when you do your best and watch how God takes care of the rest.
