“But if I were to you, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him. He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted”. Job 5:8-9
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”. Matthew 7:7
Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
From the creation of the earth, God has been performing miracles. I believe the creation of the earth in 6 days is a miracle in itself. God performed many other miracles such as parting the Red Sea, Shutting the Lion’s mouth and the birth of Jesus Christ. While, Jesus was on earth in the form of man, he also performed many miracles such as raising the dead, healing the sick and casting out demons. After he left earth, the miracles did not stop though. God is still doing miracles in people’s lives and through mighty men and women of God.
As Job stated in the above scripture, lay your cause before God and he will perform wonders and miracles that cannot be fathomed or counted.
This article will highlight my recent personal miracle and the miracles of my friend Bennett Stubbs. I don’t really like talking about my personal life in public but God deserves the glory for this recent personal miracle and so I must share it. Bennett has also given me permission to talk about his miracles.
Ben’s Miracles – Doctors cannot believe the recovery progress from two strokes
On July 31, 2017 while at work, Ben’s coworkers noticed a difference in his speech so they took him to the hospital. Later that day, the doctor released him to return home. On August 1st while Ben was preparing for work, he noticed he had difficulties preparing so his daughter called a friend who in turn called the ambulance. The ambulance arrived 20 minutes later and the doctor informed the family that Ben suffered a stroke. Ben was sent to the Dominican Republic for treatment where he spent approximately three weeks. During his time in DR, Ben reflected on God and how he drifted away from God and consequently recommitted his life to God. In September 2017,Ben suffered another stroke on his birthday. However, that second stroke did not allow Ben to waver in his faith.
Today, Ben is recovering very well and the doctors are amazed at his recovery. Ben is speaking clearer and better than before. In fact, initially when Ben had the stroke, he communicated with his friends and family by writing on an IPAD. Ben gives all the Glory to God for his speedy recovery.
Ben recalled a request he made from God many years ago to not let him die until his daughter graduated from high school. His daughter graduated at the beginning of July 2017 (top student in the country) and so Ben thought he was going to die not only because of the stroke but because of his request from God. Ben has recommitted his life and has ask God to extend his life.
It should be noted that stroke is the 5th leading cause of death.
In High School, Ben wanted to be a doctor. Unfortunately, he did not get that opportunity. However, 35 years later, his daughter Chelsea who received the top score in Science in the World will be attending medical school next year in the UK. Isn’t God great?
My Personal Miracles – Off High Blood Pressure Pills After 20 years plus
It was around summer 1998 when my wife and I decided to build our first home and so after drafting the plans, we sought financing from the Bank. The bank informed us that we will need to get a life insurance. Of course, one of the first steps in getting life insurance is to get a medical exam. After doing the medical exam, the doctor informed me that there was no way he can give me a good medical report as there was blood in the urine and the blood pressure was high
The doctor then referred me to see a specialist in the Bahamas as we had limited specialists in TCI. The specialist performed a biopsy and informed me that there was infection in the kidneys. I could not remember if the doctor said the infection is causing the high blood pressure or the high blood pressure is causing the infection.
Anyway, the TCI doctor prescribed medication to control the high blood pressure and the infection and so I was taking medication for hypertension from age 28 literally every day for 20 years plus.
For the past of couple of weeks, I noticed that when my blood pressure was tested, it was normal. Therefore, without the permission from the doctor, I discontinue taking the medication 6 weeks ago. The pressure continues to remain normal without me taking the pills. Then two weeks ago, when the Doctor did her monthly check up with me, she informed me that I do not have to take the pressure pills anymore.
As my pastor would always say, give God the Glory and so I am giving God all the Glory for this miracle.
How to receive a miracle?
- Always Pray for your miracle. Never stop praying.
- Have Faith and Believe when you pray for a miracle.
- Speak to your situation and command the miracle to be done in Jesus Name.
- Study and meditate on the Word and adhere to the Word for Proverbs 4:22 states that for they are life to those who find them and health to all flesh.
Miracles are still happening in this world. I thank all of those persons who have been praying for me especially my wife Joanna who was praying specifically about the blood pressure medication.
I am looking forward to the other miracles that will take place not only in my life but in the lives of others.
I hope you are inspired by the miracles that Ben experienced in his life.
Keep Believing and Do not stop praying. Even after you get your miracles, stay in the word and continue to worship God. You do not want to lose your miracle. The Devil will do all he can so you can lose your miracle so you have to remain in that relationship with God.
