Through Jesus we have open access to God. I think sometimes we put a cap on what we think God can do, and don’t allow Him to do any more than what we think He is capable of.
We think He can heal a headache, but we are not so sure about Him healing depression. We know that He can provide us with a great job, but it’s a little much to think that He would clear our financial debts. If He can do one miracle, He can do any miracle. Maybe we don’t believe it because we’ve never heard about it happening to anyone else. The thing is, He is a creative God – He is actually the creator – and He is into creative miracles. When Jesus turned water into wine no one had never seen that done before. When Jesus healed the sick, the blind and the crippled, that had never been done before.
There is so much more to God than we could ever know – let’s believe for new things! Anything that is according to His will. Anything! Not just the same miracle we have already seen and therefore will easily believe (every miracle is a great one, I just want us to believe for things we never thought about). Everything that doesn’t align with His will, we can ask Him to change. Bad eyesight, He can restore. I’ve been believing for my eyesight to be healed for three years, and I’m still believing – because He said ANYTHING.
If He said anything, then why are we being so polite? Let’s be like that widow in 2 Kings who went and collected every jar she could find, any vessel, even her neighbour’s and everyone who she could find, because the prophet said that any and every jar she brought would be filled. I want to have that kind of faith, to bring everything I can find before God and let Him fill it. If He said ‘anything’, He means ‘anything’ – nothing is too small or too specific.
The only condition is, we have to ask. If we don’t ask then He won’t hear us. We can’t just carry around all these jars and wait for them to be filled. Just holding them out and looking up at God like grumpy teenagers, “God, why are you not filling these jars, why have you not given me any miracles yet?” He says, “Ask”. Ask again and keep on asking, knowing that He said ‘anything’. I’m not saying it will happen instantly, although it might. It will happen, though, if you ask Him.
