“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth… That whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance…” Joel 2:30-32
The meaning of miracle of harvest is a miracle that results in the harvest of souls. These days, God will create miracles for many people; and the purpose is so that they may believe in Him.
As God’s children, we will also experience many miracles. It is so that when we are restored, we can go and restore others. We will be a vessel that brings miracles to many people. With the power of the Holy Spirit, we will be able to do miracles for those people so that they can come to the Lord.
There are a few keys to remember in order for us to experience the Lord’s miracle. First, we must believe. We must believe if the Lord has spoken, then it will be done. Even if it does not make sense!
Second, we have to take action, even when God’s command does not make sense to us.
Third is to have humility. Naaman almost did not experience God’s miracle due to his pride. But when he repented and humbled himself before the Lord, he experienced a great miracle, 2 Kings 5:10-14.
Fourth is to obey all of God’s commands. Fifth is to do the Great Commission and start becoming a witness (evangelize), Matthew 28:19-20.
Six is to sow/give. Be faithful in tithing and giving other offerings. The Lord will open up the windows of heaven and bless us, Malachi 3:10.
And seven is to live in intimacy with the Lord. Set aside a time daily to pray and meditate on God’s Word.
