Strength Through Hard Times – Day 3

“Let’s kick the word ‘luck’ to the curb. Let’s receive miracles for what they are, confirmations of the truth of God.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did John 2:23 (NLT) – “Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him.”

“We’re rollin’ now – Day 3 of our seven-day workout to defeat hard times. Today the scriptures remind us of the need to condition our faith and trust. A key to us making it through tough times is to remember those miracles He has already done in our life. No, NOT LUCK, I’m talking MIRACLES. You see, no matter how big or small, God makes miracles happen to condition our faith and trust. Some of the small things that we call luck are actually small miracles from God so we can strengthen our belief in Him and He can bring us bigger ones. So the next time that small transformation happens in our lives let’s not say “Man, I got lucky.” Let’s call it for what it is and give thanks! Listen here, “Thank You Jesus” is not an aphorism or a convenient saying…“Thank You Jesus” is an affirmation that we believe God brings us out of circumstances in order to fulfill His purpose. Let’s recognize that there will come a time when enough miracles have been performed and the truth has been proven. For this reason, we have to condition ourselves now so we can exercise our faith when we feel there’s no way out. Let’s not doubt that He’s a miracle worker.” – #ToddCPittman
