For whatever reason the Lord has given this brother an inside look, and the faith and knowledge of the miracle journey. For me it has never (as memory serves) been something instant, we have always had to wait. During this waiting, there have been multiple tests, usually where the Lord and the enemy know I am weakest as well as tests in areas I did not think could be tested.
The journey through multiple miracles has given this brother a testimony which is likely at least part of the reason and purpose this nobody exists on earth today. What is this testimony and what has this brother learned?
-We cannot 'fix' each others problems nor were we ever meant to. Why does the fixing? The Lord.
-The miracle journey is a time of testing, do you really believe? The entire spiritual world is watching to find out the answer. The enemy will attack before, during and after your answer. Before your answer he will tell you it will never happen, while the Lord is answering he will tell you its not real and somehow or other its a mirage that will not last, and after the answer has taken root in reality your personal weaknesses will be explored as well as one last "appearance" that your miracle might be reversed or taken away.
This pattern has repeated itself time and again in this brother's experience.
-We can quote scripture at each other all day and night but without the Spirit of God bringing it alive to us it will all appear useless. You know the Word, and someone else quotes the Word to you that you already know but nothing stirs inside of you, it does not seem to help to hear what you already know from the Word. Ever had that happen? The Spirit of God must move and bring it alive to you, THEN it will be helpful.
proof? The enemy knows the Word of God from cover to cover but he never really understood it. If he did, He would not have crucified our Lord. That's just one example of how you can brain knowledge know the Word but it not help you.
-Ultimately, the answering of our prayers of all kinds to include miracles is about the journey, our walk with the Lord day by day. It is about walking and talking and building relationship with Him. In the end it will result in a testimony. Although the Lord does delight in answering us, He also delights in the relationship. Will we trust Him day to day and hour to hour? "Give us this day our daily bread" is what the Lord taught us.
|May those who delight in my vindication shout for joy and gladness; may they always|
say, "The LORD be exalted, who delights in the well-being of his servant."
Some miracles have taken months, some have taken years, some see answers almost immediately.
-We must remember the source: The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit are our source. Our answer comes from Him alone. Day to day, during the pain and patience and suffering that are ours in Christ Jesus, the Spirit alone can grant us peace.
the days of Moses and his people—
where is he who brought them through the sea,
with the shepherd of his flock?
Where is he who set
his Holy Spirit among them,
12who sent his glorious arm of power
to be at Moses’ right hand,
who divided the waters before them,
to gain for himself everlasting renown,
13who led them through the depths?
Like a horse in open country,
they did not stumble;
14like cattle that go down to the plain,
they were given rest by the Spirit of the Lord.
-The Spirit often brought to mind Israel's exodus from Egypt and ^^^^ the parting of the sea to hold onto during my miracle journey.
The Lord's Word is either true or it is not. My testimony is that the Word is true. The Lord either performs miracles today or He does not. This brother's testimony is that He does.
-We must bring the Lord something He can work with. What can He work with? Our faith and His Word. How can the Lord resist His own Word? How can the Lord resist our faith in Him? Bring to Him those things He has asked of us. Ask, seek, knock and keep on doing all three.
-This brother can tell you that the Lord does work on behalf of His children. The Lord absolutely performs miracles for His children today. It is very important to understand that there is NOTHING special about me apart from the Spirit that lives within me and who works through me, that same Spirit lives in you. If you are in Christ, then the same blood that cleanses me cleanses you.
We are forgiven and beloved servants who are being tested. Stand up in your faith or you will not stand at all.

Do you think our faith is going to be tested? ^^^ Yes. Is it painful? Yes. Do we suffer? Yes. Does the Lord answer? YES, (usually) after we have been tested.
Everyone who asks receives (Matt 7:8). The Lord said it, the Lord meant it and this nobody who writes to you today can testify that it is the truth.
Fight the good fight of faith, continue to endure. Continually bring back to the Lord His Word and your faith to give the Lord the legal right to act on your behalf. Faith and the Word are golden in the kingdom we belong to. Ask the Spirit of our Lord to give you peace to to make the Word come alive to your Spirit so you will have substance within you to feed upon. We are a needy people, we need Him each and every day for everything.
grace and peace
Sister Naomi your miracle is surely on its way.
