I’ve started praying, “God, I’m available today; if you need someone to deliver a miracle, I am willing and available.”
It’s like the prayer in Isaiah 6:8“>Isaiah: “Here am I, send me.”
So I’m ready to help—one way or another. I’m ready to share—a good deed or even some cash.
“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.” —1 Timothy 6:18“>1 Tim 6:18 NLT
I’ve been looking for God’s nudge, whisper or especially His shout.
Sometimes I can clearly see that someone needs help, and other times I feel an inner voice saying ‘talk to that man’ or ‘stop here.’
Sometimes it’s inconvenient, but I’m trying to be available anyway.
I think about the Bible’s examples:
Little boy and the fish and loaves miracle
Jesus and his availability to Zaccheaeus
Jesus’ approach to Samaritan woman at the well
Good Samaritan story—this is exactly what I’m thinking about!!
Then I just have to ‘step forward’—step out of the boat so to speak.
Miracles come in all shapes and sizes.
Seven kinds of miracles we can bring to someone:
1. A touch.
A heartfelt hug, a pat on the back or a look in the eye that says, “You are important, I see you and you matter to me.”
2. A listening ear.
“Tell me about it. I care about how you feel and what you are going through.”
