Are You Ready for Your Miracle?

“Long live the king! My God sent his angel to shut the lions’ mouths so that they would not hurt me, for I have been found innocent in his sight. And I have not wronged you, Your Majesty” (Daniel 6:21-22 NLT).

Have you ever seen a miracle in your life?

Many Christians haven’t seen a miracle because they’ve never given God the opportunity to do one. They’ve played it safe their whole lives.

Want God to show you a miracle? Take a risk.

Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb; that’s where the fruit is.

If you don’t tackle any big problems in your life, you don’t know that God can solve them. God shows up when you reach the end of your rope. If you never do anything that can’t be explained away by your own power, then you’ve never really trusted God.

Most people go through life defining their existence by what they think they can do. You are capable of so much more—through God’s power

Daniel from the Bible is a great example of this principle. He saw miracles because he wasn’t afraid to take risks.

In Daniel 6, when the king decreed that no one could worship a god other than him, Daniel defied the order — publicly. He then took a risk by purposely praying to God three times a day in front of an open window. The king tossed him into a den of lions for this offense.

God provided a miracle because Daniel stepped out in faith. People generally don’t survive a night in a den with hungry lions.

But after his night in the lion’s den, Daniel had a royal visitor — and to the king’s utter surprise, Daniel wasn’t dead. He told the king: “Long live the king! My God sent his angel to shut the lions’ mouths so that they would not hurt me, for I have been found innocent in his sight. And I have not wronged you, Your Majesty” (Daniel 6:21-22 NLT).

The king then gave orders to lift Daniel out of the pit.

That’s a miracle. But it’s one that would have never happened if Daniel hadn’t shown the courage to defy the king’s ungodly order.

The more risks you take and the more problems you tackle, the more miracles you’ll see God perform. Trust God, and walk out on that limb.
