That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (Heb 6:12)
This morning, I went to the VA hospital to get my eyes checked. It was a good morning. I had been blessed with time off from my busy schedule and brought my right hand man Garlen Bell with me. We had intended to discuss matters of the ministry and I was looking for fellowship. Upon entering the doctor’s office, I was submitted to a series of tests with my eyes. After all was done, I had received some good news—I can drive without my glasses.
I was happy with that report, but the Lord brought me back to about 30 plus years where I was asking him to heal my eyes. There was times, in my foolishness, that I would drive without my glasses and by the grace of God did not wind up in an accident. I had, eventually, put that on the shelf and forgot about my request to God. God, in his mercy did not forget about me. It took 30 years plus to get a manifestation of my miracle.
It was during a series of cataracts surgeries that my eyes improved. I thank God for doctors and medical science. I still, may, need some reading glasses, but compared to how I was—It is a miracle! My former eyeglasses had thick glasses. Now, my new glasses are a lot thinner and I just need them for reading. God is good.
Just want to encourage you to not let go of your dreams, visions and desires. God loves you and wants to bless you with your miracle. Don’t be impatient, rest on his promises and you will see it come to pass.
PS-Dear Lord, I thank you for being a good God. Help me to understand faith and your promises. Give me wisdom to develop patience so I can see my miracle manifested. Thank you that you are teaching me to walk by faith and not by sight. I thank you because I see by the eye of faith, my miracle being manifested. Thank you, Lord, for remembering me. Thank you that you are good. In Jesus name. Amen.
