Without minimizing God’s miracles, I now believe the more we live in God’s blessings, the less we will have to live by God’s miracles. For example, the more we live in God’s promise of divine health, the less we will need God’s miracles of healing. Many churches teach that God will heal your body when you get sick. But how many teach divine health, believing that God will give you a divinely healthy life, free from sickness and disease? The more we walk in divine health, the less we will need physical healing.
We have already applied this same thought to the financial realm. The more we live in God’s promise of divine prosperity, the less we will need God to do financial miracles in our lives. God’s miracles rescue us in times of crisis; however, we can say that living in God’s blessings keep crisis from coming.
When God intervenes and solves a crisis by a miracle, it is as if He is working for us. When God brings blessing into our lives in response to us obeying His Word or sowing seed, it is like He is working with us. Miracles are God overcoming the natural laws of the earth. Blessings are God working with the natural laws of the earth, like sowing and reaping, to bring His blessings into our lives. Both blessings and miracles are supernatural and come from God.
Living by God’s miracles could leave you with a car that requires prayer for a miracle every time you need it to start. I can hear the groaning—too many of us have been there! The amazing thing is that God in His mercy will in some miraculous way help you get your car started. But unfortunately, you will still need another miracle to get it started the next day. Living in God’s blessings can bring you a new car that will start every time you need it to start.
