A miracle is something that nobody can do but the Creator.
You can own a car, pay for it, and have the title. You can have the tag and the insurance. You can have everything ready, but that car is of no benefit to you without its key. Your house key can’t be used to start it. Your garage key can’t start it. It has to have the key that goes to that car. But sometimes, we want the same key to go to everything.
I think we all have several keys. You can have your miracle, but until you find the right key, you might still be in the waiting line. I want to talk about seven different keys.
1. Keep on praying.
Pray when you’re crying. Pray when you don’t know what to do. Pray when you stand alone. Pray when your world is shaking and when you feel broken. You have to keep on praying. When you pray, He listens. Some things only come by prayer and fasting. The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Your prayer is like a hammer beating the rock holding back your miracle.
2. Find you a real, true Christian prayer warrior who will agree with you in prayer.
There is power in prayer, but there is also power in numbers. When you have something going on in your life, be careful who you tell. Because not everyone will tell you good things, and if you get the wrong people involved and they are speaking unbelief over you, it might be more than you want to deal with at the moment. You need to find someone that will speak faith to you. Someone who will encourage you, and tell you, “Yeah, I know what’s going on, but Jesus is the Way Maker.” You need somebody who is a prayer warrior. Even Jesus asked some of His disciples to pray with Him.
3. The prayers of someone standing and praying for you.
Peter, when he was in prison in Acts, walked out because somebody kept praying for him. Prayer warriors are the front line on the battlefield and the devil shoots arrows at them first because they are protecting the people behind them. I want to encourage you to send in your prayer request to us. Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us (1.877.226.4088). We love you and we want to help carry your load.
4. Simple obedience.
Naman wanted his leprosy healed, but he was mad and turned away in a rage when it wasn’t going to be healed the way he wanted it done. But when he obeyed the Lord, his skin was completely free of the disease. Some things aren’t going to happen until we obey the Lord.
5. Some miracles come from worshipping the Lord when it’s just you and Him.
That is something the devil is really trying to stop, your worship. In houses and buildings, there is this thing called a thermostat on the wall. It doesn’t control what the temperature is on the outside, but it controls the temperature on the inside. Each one of us has a thermostat called worship inside of us, and it doesn’t change everything going on around you, it will sure change everything going on inside you. If we worship the Lord, He’ll bring peace and joy back to us.
6. Laying on of hands and anointing with oil.
Get Holy Ghost-filled, sanctified, washed in the Blood of Jesus people to lay hands on you and pray for you. I’m not being mean, but we don’t need hypocrites laying hands on us. We need people full of the love, mercy, and goodness of God to anoint us and pray for us.
7. Wait on the Lord.
Like for Joseph when he was in prison, sometimes God turns the hourglass and says, “Pray and fast, but Joseph, you’re not coming out until the hourglass is ready to be turned again. You keep your integrity and walk right, but you’re not coming out until everything is set up.” When a person is driving and they come across a red light, it doesn’t mean ‘no,’ it just means ‘not now.’ Sometimes, you just have to wait.
