After a whole bunch of special Christmas music this morning, Larry and I will bring a tag team message, "It's time to speak your miracle!" This is the highlight of our Christmas series -- "Christmas Miracles." This morning we are going to focus on the importance of what we SAY in receiving our miracle. Words, words, words, words, words -- so much power in them!!!
"It is written: "I believed; therefore I have spoken."With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak.” II Corinthians 4:13
"...so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
"As it is written: "I have made you a father of many nations." He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were." Romans 4:17
As usual, I am preaching to myself as much as anyone else this morning. I am in need of a miracle in a certain area of my life. I am standing and speaking my miracle, even as I am believing that God will do many other miracles in the house this morning. I have to believe He's going to come through on my behalf today too. I have a few friends who are faithful to stand with me in prayer, and this is an amazing blessing that I never, ever take for granted. Specifically right now I want to thank Melissa, Mike, Susan and my sister Shari for lifting this need up for me, as you have been so faithful to do. I believe breakthrough is right around the corner, even now as I type this I believe it.
In addition to whatever God Himself decides to do in our church service this morning, Larry and I also have some surprises up our sleeve for the church family. Gonna be a great day! A unique day as usual at Northside. So get ready, get ready, get ready!
