Miracles – Worship Wednesday

A few thoughts first:

I know there are those who characterize Bethel Church in Redding CA as a "name it and claim it" church in the worst sense of the phrase. I've heard it said that they preach a gospel where if you're not healed you don't have "enough faith."

That could not be further from the truth.

I implore you to watch at least until Bill Johnson gets up, at about 5:50. He gives a small taste of the back story for this song. When I heard the circumstances of its writing I was reminded of the famous back story for the old hymn, "It Is Well With My Soul" by Horatio G. Spafford.

Enjoy

Miracles by Chris Quilala

The One who made the blind to see
Is moving here in front of me, moving here in front of me
The One who made the deaf to hear
Is silencing my every fear, silencing my every fear

[Chorus:]
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles

The One who does impossible is
Reaching out to make me whole
Reaching out to make me whole
The One who put death in its place
His life is flowing through my veins
His life is flowing through my veins

[Chorus x2:]
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles

The God who was and is to come
The power of the Risen One
The God who brings the dead to life
You're the God of miracles!
You're the God of miracles!
[x2]

[Chorus:]
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles

The God who was and is to come
The power of the Risen One
The God who brings the dead to life
You're the God of miracles!
You're the God of miracles!

[Chorus:]
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles
I believe in You, I believe in You
You're the God of miracles


Come and worship Him with me today, will you?

Blessings,

Ben

    I've only this year caught the revelation of why "God is good, All the time"--regardless whether He answered our prayer as hoped, or not. If God doesn't heal, or otherwise answer a prayer as we hoped, I don't believe blaming God--or my lack of faith--is a helpful response. Thinking my faith is so wimpy certainly doesn't build and strengthen my faith--only feeding on the Word of God does that. It's been more beneficial for me, recently, to understand that believing God WILL answer, is healthy for me--it's not positive thinking, rather it releases and builds faith. And if He does not answer as I'd fervently hoped, I now believe it's because He has something better in the works. He's a good God, a good good Father, and He only gives good gifts to His kids. There are things we won't understand until we get Home--so I've decided to spend the rest of my days thanking and praising Him for what I know of Him (His goodness and faithful love toward me), rather than exhausting myself in trying to figure Him out--what His reasons are for doing or not doing things. He's my God, the King of my heart, Father and Spouse to me (Lord and Savior, Redeemer, etc)--why would I think He'd let me down, ever?

    And He's truly the God of Miracles--which come in all kinds of strange shapes--that's part of the excitement of the adventure with Him! Today I saw that, for the 2nd time since 2005, He's done a miracle directly related to my misunderstanding of some written information I received--in short, had I not misunderstood the info, I would not have been motivated to move toward the mountain He was eager to push out of my life--Hallelujah!!!! He's a genius at working in the lives of His kids who are never quite as smart as we think we are 🙂

      Amen and Amen - you've said so much that is wonderful here. Thanks Stella!

      I used to think if God didn't answer my prayer that the problem could not be on His end, it had to be on my end, but I've learned (am learning) that there are so many more ends that I'm not aware of, so many different variables that will never comprehend. So I trust in the goodness of God in every circumstance and look for His hand to hold and His lead to follow.

      Thanks much

      Ben
