So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. Thessalonians 5:11
You know that feeling you get when you meet someone for the first time and instantly hit it off? That’s exactly what happened with a dear friend and myself. I had met him about a year ago when he helped me on a project I was working on and because of his help that project exceeded my expectations. We hadn’t talked for many months, when I reached out to him one day regarding a new project. He quickly informed me he was no longer with that same company and that he was in a transitional state. I could tell he had peace about things, but I could also sense that he wasn’t quite sure how it would all work out.
In that moment I sensed God stir in me His desire for my friend and I to take it to a new level. I said to my friend that I felt God wanted us to become “covenant brothers,” and in that statement, that could have seemed a little strange and awkward, we both had an immediate understanding that the Father was knitting us together. We both agreed to reconnect in a few days and set up a time to meet.
Well, a “few days” turned into a couple of weeks, when the Father began to speak to me loud and clear that I needed to set up that meeting. I picked up the phone, and with no answer, I left him a message. Later that night I went to a movie, and during the movie he called. I almost didn’t answer, but a Divine nudge said, “Take that call.” I stepped out of the theater, took the call, and told my friend I would get back with him in a day or two to set something up. Plopping back down in the theater seat I heard that “Still Small Voice” get a little louder and say “Call him back now and set up that meeting for tomorrow morning,” so I did.
You see, I had been asking the Father for a miracle in an area of my life that I desperately needed and what I felt Him showing me was that if I wanted a miracle, then I needed to be a miracle. That very next morning before our meeting God gave me specific things to say to my friend and do for him, which for my friend was the specific answer to some specific prayers that he had been praying. And guess what, I’ve received my miracle since that day too.
Natalie Grant has a new hit song out titled “Be One” that says, “Why sit around and wait for a miracle to come, when we can be one.”
If you’re in need of a miracle or breakthrough in some area of your life, let me encourage you today to ask the Father if there is somewhere or to someone you can “be one.” Your miracle may just be the seed you sow that God uses to bring your miracle to pass.
