The miracle you need to get from where you are to where you want to be is within your reach. God gave us the seed for every miracle we need. So we’re not waiting for Him; He’s waiting for us.
We tend to look at the things we don’t have instead of what we do have. For instance, we say, “I’m too old…I don’t have enough resources… I don’t have the connections that others do… There’s nobody to help me… I don’t have enough talent…” etc.
We focus on the wrong things instead of discovering the seed-form of our miracle. As the saying goes, “Ask God for an oak tree and He gives you an acorn!”
God’s answers to our prayers can go unnoticed because He usually answers with a seed. It’s almost always a small thing easily overlooked and so insignificant that we don’t give it a second thought. But if we use that seed for God’s glory, it can become the tipping point that brings our breakthrough! It can be the difference between victory and defeat!
Even if what we have is small compared to others—if we’re willing to use it—God can cause miracles. God’s “big things” always start out with small things. In Matthew 17:20, Jesus says that with faith as small as a mustard seed we can move mountains (problems, stumbling blocks) out of our life.
We need to ask God to give us eyes to see what we’ve written off as non-essential…things like a winning smile, musical ability, the value of the people around us, the few dollars (resources) we have, etc. Remember, if they go unnoticed, they’re no good to us because we don’t use them.
Once you notice your mustard seed and dedicate it to God, it can do what you can’t do. It will do what God can. When God revealed the significance of what Moses, Shamgar, David and Samson had been given (what they thought was insignificant), that very thing became the tipping point in their lives. It released them to overcome the impossible odds they faced.
When these men let God control what they had in their hand, the impossible became possible. Moses’ dead stick became the rod of God, opening the Red Sea so the children of Israel could cross over and be delivered from the Egyptians.
With God’s anointing on his weapon, David’s little slingshot killed the fearsome Goliath. Samson and Shamgar killed thousands of Philistines with just the jaw bone of an ass and an ox’s goad (short stick).
Stop looking out there for your success! Look at what’s already in your grasp. It may look ordinary, but don’t discount it.
The tipping point for victory is in the insignificant mustard seed God has given you. Discover it! Dedicate it to Him! And use it, starting today! Release God’s hand to bring the miracle He’s been waiting to give you.
Change the odds in your favor by using the little thing and it will become the tipping point for your breakthrough. The miracle in your marriage, your finances, job, family, etc. Ask yourself: What’s in my hand?
