DEEPER IN THE WORD for November 2022             

 



       Don't Miss

     the Wonders!



  by Jeanne Alcott


     I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.”  That’s what someone may say when you’ve told them about a great deal you’ve been offered.  Then they say, “That sounds too good to be true; you better watch out.”

    Or maybe when you’re given a job position that’s everything you dreamed about, it can seem too good to be true.  Or you think you have found just the perfect person to date or marry.  Perhaps you receive a credit instead of a charge on one of your bills.  That sure seems too good to be true!  So when something is too good, it’s hard to believe it.

    But when God tells you that He can do great things for you and perform wonders in your life and give you your heart’s desire, it’s not too good to be true.  It IS true!


Amazing Promises.

    In His Word, He makes some of the most amazing promises of what He’ll do to prosper you and give you wholeness and well-being.  To show blessing and favor on you.  To make your conditions ones of joy and peace in the midst of trouble.  To protect and guide you and give you direction.  He can send just the right person at the right time to help you.  And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.  Of course, the most important wonder He does for you is to offer you grace and mercy for salvation and also for every day of your life.

    So when you’re facing needs or hardships or you want to see something accomplished, watch for His wonders.  Watch for them when it seems too good!  Switch your thoughts to think, “This is possible.”  It may be better than you dreamed of, but that’s what God says He does.


Facing Eviction.

​​​​​​​     This is what a woman and her son had to believe when they were about to be evicted from their home.  She had asked us to pray concerning their financial situation and how they had fallen four months behind in their rent.  They were both working, she and her son, but their hours had been cut back.  Many people know how that is.  Sometimes the company cuts back your hours and it can affect your budget and then you fall behind in some way.  That’s what happened with them.

​​​​​​​     So after four months, they received an eviction notice but they had no money to pay the rent.  It was even worse than that because they didn’t have the funds to move to a different location.  So the mother was becoming stressed thinking about what would happen if they became homeless.

​​​​​​​     She is a Partner with this ministry, so she called us to pray that they would have favor with the people in the front office of their apartment complex.  In spite of their not being able to pay the entire amount, they wanted to be able to stay and not be evicted.  So the day after we prayed, the son went to the front office to talk with them.

​​​​​​​     Now, there’s no reason why they should expect something wonderful to happen, especially since the person who was in the front office had already given them the eviction notice.  It seemed too good to happen, but they decided to ask anyway.  They believed for the wonders of God to come to them.

​​​​​​​     So when the son went to the office, he found a new person there.  He had never seen her before.  As he explained to her their circumstances, she decided they could work out a payment plan for them.  That way they could stay in the apartment and catch up on the rent.  There’s no doubt in my mind God had a new person in that office who would have favor on them.  Now that’s a wonder.  And to be able to work out a payment plan so they could stay in their home when they faced such tough circumstances, that’s a wonder.

 

Stop Saying That.

​​​​​​​     God is full of all different kinds of wonders that we need in our life.  That’s why He wants us to watch for them.  Stop believing that something is too good to be true.  It couldn’t happen to us.  Stop saying that!  That’s what we need to tell ourselves.

​​​​​​​     We need to stop ourselves when we start having these thoughts that, Oh, this just couldn’t happen for me.  That’s more than I can ask.  I don’t see how this can be.  Start thinking, God is sending wonders to me.  I believe for it.

​​​​​​​     We don’t believe that something is too good to be true because we believe God’s Word is true.  In John 10:10 it tells us that Jesus came not so we could be disappointed and live below what God had for us.  Instead it says that He was sent to this earth so we could have life.  Not only eternal salvation, but right now, this moment, you can experience a better life than you ever dreamed.  He came to give you an abundant life—full, till it overflows.

​​​​​​​     So why aren’t we watching for wonders!  I mean, if God’s Word tells us He can do all of that for us, we should be watching for it.  Believe that things will happen that will amaze us.  Astonish us.  Give us great joy and happiness, even give us some laughter.

​​​​​​​     We’re talking about every part of our life.  Our knowledge of God, our spiritual experiences with Him.  Our position and work.  Possessions and financial well-being.  Our success in relationships and accomplishment.  Health in every way.

​​​​​​​     That’s why the Apostle John could write, I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.  (Ref. III John 1:2.)  Every area prospers with the goodness of God.  He has so many wonders to impart to us.


He Gave Us the Good News.

​​​​​​​     God sent His Son to get us this good news.  It’s not too good to be true.  That’s what some people believed when heaven announced the birth of Jesus.  The Messiah had been born.  But that was such a great wonder that it was hard for some people to believe.

​​​​​​​     Luke chapter 2 describes how an angel surprised some shepherds as they were out in the field.  They were on their work shift, taking their turn watching the sheep.  Can you imagine being on your work shift and have an angel show up?  All of a sudden this heavenly being stood beside them and then light began to flash and shine about them.  It was the glory of the Lord.

​​​​​​​     They were frightened.  So the announcement of the birth of Christ began with, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people.  For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord!  (Ref. Luke 2:10, 11.)

​​​​​​​     Good news!  Great joy!  Is it too good to be true?  Could this very day, in our town, the Messiah be born?  The shepherds chose to believe.

​​​​​​​     That’s what God wants us to do.  When He announces to us the good plans He has for our life, choose to believe.  It’s not too good to be true.  It’s from God and it’s for you.

​​​​​​​     The shepherds believed this so much that they rushed into Bethlehem to see the Baby.  There they found Joseph and Mary with the Christ Child.  So they told them and everyone who was there all that had been made known to them.

​​​​​​​     Now listen to the reaction everyone who heard the story had.  And all who heard it were astounded and marveled at what the shepherds told them.  (Ref. Luke 2:18.)  Astounded and marveled!  Because of the wonder of what they heard.

​​​​​​​     Don’t miss the wonders!  Be as those shepherds.  Believe what God is telling you.  Be as that mother and son who received help with keeping their apartment and believe something wonderful can happen.

​​​​​​​     The angels are saying, “I bring you good news.  Great joy.”  Watch for the wonders when it seems too good, because they’re true, they’re of God, and they’re coming as you believe.

 

God has spoken.  Now it’s up to you!

​​​​​​​     God has spoken.  Now it’s up to you to watch for the wonders that He has described.  That’s why it’s so important that we join our faith together and receive from Him.  So be sure you share with us right away what kind of wonder you need God to do in your life.

​​​​​​​     God has called us to pray with you and have faith for miracles.  As soon as we hear from you, I’m going to lay my hands on what you share and we will pray.  Then we want to send you some words that will be written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit for your life.  So be sure to get in touch with us soon by clicking here.
