Make space for a miracle

You sometimes have to let go to allow God to do a miracle.

God always has a plan, He is always busy doing something in your life. He never panics or stresses.

A famous Dutch speaker and evangelist said: “There is no panic in Heaven! God has no problems, only plans.”  ― Corrie Ten Boom

"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." John 12:24 ESV

As the scripture above reveals, only when we let a situation go (the grain) and plant it in God's hands, then we allow it to bear much fruit. God cannot do a miracle when we cling to it and hold it too tightly in our own hands, it then remains alone and bears no fruit. By trusting God with our situation and placing it into His hands, we exercise faith and activate the power for a miracle.

It is so easy to take control of a situation, even if you have no answer and no way out. We just have this idea that if we just hold on, it will somehow just fix itself, but there are some situations which we cannot change, situations where we have become hopeless, discouraged or even ashamed of.

Maybe it's time to say, I can't, but You can. We have a God for which nothing is impossible and no situation is too big or too deep. Even if we cannot think of any possible solution, He has one and He's always willing to take what's in your hand and make it grow into something beautiful.

"Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” - Corrie Ten Boom

Some more quotes by Corrie, she was such a legend. Do yourself a favour and read her story on Wikipedia, it's very encouraging.

“Hold everything in your hands lightly, otherwise it hurts when God pries your fingers open.” 
― Corrie Ten Boom

“This is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.” 
― Corrie Ten Boom, The Hiding Place
