The same God who led 3 million Israelites through the wilderness, and their clothes & shoes didn’t wear out, the same God who rained manna from Heaven every day to feed them, the same God who brought water out of the rock like a Niagara drinking fountain, the same God who fed Elijah T-bone steak from Heaven fast food delivery by raven, the same God who caused The jar of meal not to run out and the bottle of oil not to become empty for the widow of zarephath, the same God who caused Peter to find a coin in the fishes mouth to pay his and Jesus’ taxes. Is the God who will supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
God loves giving to His Children........
Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Mat 7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
Mat 7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
Mat 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Who are you looking to?
You can tell by your words who you’re looking to, who your really trusting- your disappointment in people is evidence that you have been expecting from people not God. God will let people disagree with you, or persecute you, he’ll show you how little it matters to your destiny, (Joseph). Who are you blaming for lack?
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Miracle- Three distinct New Testament Greek words represent miracles: seemeion, "a sign"; teras, "a prodigy"; dunamis, "a mighty work." Septuagint uses seemeion and teras for Hebrew ’owt and mopheth (Exo_7:9). Seemeion, "sign," views the miracle as evidence of a divine commission: Joh_3:2, "no man can do these signs (Greek) which Thou doest except God be with him" (Joh_9:30; Joh_9:33; Joh_15:24; Luk_7:19-22); teras, "prodigy" or "wonder," expresses the effect on the spectator; dunamis, "mighty work," marks its performance by a superhuman power (Act_2:22; 2Co_12:12; 2Th_2:9). The "sign" is God’s seal, attestation, or proof of a revelation being genuine. Jesus’ miracles were not merely wonders but signs; signs not merely of His power, but of the nature of His ministry and of His divine person.
