A few years ago, a young girl asked me to pray for a miracle for her. She had just graduated from high school and wanted to attend college, but lacked the funds to do so. Her parents were divorced. She lived with her mother, but her father was a deadbeat and would not help with finances at all. She mentioned her upcoming graduation party.
“Will your dad be invited to your party?” I asked.
“No,” she replied, “I try not to be around him at all.”
“If you want a miracle from God, you need to find ways to honor your father.”
I opened my Bible and read:
“Honor your father and mother (this is the first commandment with a promise), that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” (Ephesians 6:2-3)
She struggled with what I advised her to do, but ended up inviting her dad to the graduation party.
The end result: a few weeks later, a new scholarship fund chose her as the lone recipient. She received her miracle from God.
Today, I prayed:
Lord, help us Americans to honor Your word so that it is a lamp for our feet and a light for our paths; and so that we believers are no longer taken captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. (Based on Psalm 119:105 and Colossians 2:8)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
