Isaiah 55:8 (NLT)
But the truth is that miracles don’t come from the places you expect them. And they don’t come as a result of your own effort. The source of a miracle is always unexpected.
Take Abraham, for example. God told Abraham he was going to have a son, and that the son would be the father of a great nation. Abraham was nearly 100 years old, and he and his wife had no children. It would take a miracle to make it happen.
But he had trouble believing God’s promise, and he didn’t wait on God to work a miracle. Instead, he took matters into his own hands and had a child with a woman who wasn’t his wife.
But that wasn’t God’s plan. God’s plan had been to work a miracle in Abraham’s wife, Sarah. Abraham’s solution was inferior to God’s.
The same is true for you. Your way of making things happen is always second best—God’s way is best.
If you could understand God, you would be God. But you’re not! Isaiah 55:8 says, “‘My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,’ says the Lord. ‘And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine’” (NLT).
Miracles always come in unexpected ways. So there’s no need to fret, fear, or try to figure it out.
Trust God and say, “I don’t know how God is going to do it but I know he will do it.”
Then simply obey and follow where God leads. And get ready for a miracle.
