When Faith Works

Waking up one beautiful Friday morning in 2015, I prepared for work, went to my car and started it; lo and behold it wouldn’t start. The next thing I did as a Jesus baby was to pray. I sat there and prayed but it still wouldn’t start. Does it mean God can’t cause a miracle? Well, as I sat there thinking, I was led to call the company that usually serviced our car.

I picked up my phone and put a call through to my husband to tell him what was happening and asked that he call them. They sent someone to my house. As they were checking everything checkable, I had the strong urge to pray. And I felt “Oh really? Right now? When I am supposed to open my eyes wide to see what they are doing?” Oh how faithless I was in the technician.

OK then! I prayed. But this time around, it was for God to help them 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 was and not be like the typical mechanics.

Hmmm, God hears. God is always listening.

And then I wonder, how is it that He hears you and I and another, talking to him at the same time without mixing up our conversations? I know for sure that when both of my children are talking to me at the same time, I am like: left, right, left, right; trying to listen to both at the same time and even end up mixing it all up. But I digress.

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

Why this epistle? You may ask. Oh! She has come again. Oh yes I have. (Laughs)

Now, let us get to the good part.

  • 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. DON’T spend it at the wrong place. You’ll only end up disappointed when you don’t get what you want.

In my case, 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 [fellow human beings]. God wouldn’t have come down to fix the problem for me… if HE did, I definitely wouldn’t be writing this.

God’s beautiful blessings to you.
