Waking up one beautiful Friday morning, prepared for work. I went to my car, started it, lo and behold it wasn’t starting. Of course the next thing as a Jesus baby I am is to pray. I prayed but it still didn’t start. Does it mean God can’t cause a miracle? Well as I sat thinking, I was led to call the company that usually service my car.

I picked up my Phone and put a call through to them, they sent someone to my house. As they were checking everything checkable, I had the strong urge to pray. Oh really? When I am supposed to open my eyes wide to see what they are doing? How faithless I was in the technician.

OK then! I prayed, this time around it was for God to cause them to find a solution to whatever the problem was and not create another problem. Cause them to be honest enough to tell me what the true problem is and not be like the typical mechanics.

Heaven hears, they searched and narrowed down to an electrical problem. He honestly told me, “Call the person who did what was now my problem because he knows exactly where it is. If we call our electrician, he would end up going in circles.”

Why this epistle? She has come again, yes I have oh.

We should know when to draw the line between Physical Problems and Spiritual Solutions. We should know when it’s a miracle we are expecting and when we should prepare ourselves for it.

When you don’t know what you are fighting, how do you fight?

Sometimes we have so much faith that we spend it on the wrong needs. I usually tell myself, Faith is like a currency, know when to spend it and where. Don’t spend it for the wrong thing and at the wrong place and end up disappointed when you don’t get what you want.

I needed to call the mechanic first, then have faith in God to get a proper diagnosis from them.

Read through the stories of Jesus in Scriptures, everyone that got a miracle had a specific problem. Find out what the exact problem is and ask for help. God sends help most of the times through your neighbour. God wouldn’t have come down to fix the problem for me… if HE did, I definitely wouldn’t be writing this.

God bless you.
