Miracles happen when we start seeking opportunities to practice the Word of God. 

Do not wait until you get lightening and thunder from heaven or a visitation from angels before you start praying for miracles. Do not wait until you are on a big platform with thousands of people in a healing crusade before you start praying for healing. The more we pray for people and putting God’s Words into action, the more we see the move of God. Do not sit at home and wait for opportunity to come to pray for miracles. Rather, we need to ask God to open doors for us to reveal His love and power in everyday situation. I noticed that some of the most outstanding miracles or healings happened when I prayed by myself in a quiet place, praying for a small group of people, praying in the streets, praying for a person at home and hospital.

We should not limit God and set boundaries or dictate the environment for God to perform miracles. God can perform miracles anywhere, in a small gathering or a large stadium full of people. I often get invitations to pray for individuals at home or in hospital. I apply the same faith principles that I have learnt in church to pray for individuals on the street, at home and in hospital. I must see how God sees people; everyone is valuable to Him and I must pray for them individually when time allows.

Scripture references:

Acts 14:8-13

8 In Lystra there sat a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth(A) and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed 10 and called out, “Stand up on your feet!” At that, the man jumped up and began to walk. 11 When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in human form!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker. 13 The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.

Acts 20:7-12

7 On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight. 8 There were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting. 9 Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead. 10 Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “He’s alive!” 11 Then he went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left. 12 The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.
