Several years ago, Lindsay and I were preaching in a church in Denver. The sanctuary was filled and in the audience, on the front row, was a woman in a wheelchair. While I was praying, I looked at her and said, “Ma’am, if all you can do is move a finger, move a finger.” As I watched, she started to move a finger. The audience began to watch her, and I could almost hear their thoughts. How cruel could Richard be to tell that poor woman to move just one finger? She needs healing in her entire body!
As the woman sat there in her wheelchair, she began to move first one finger, then two fingers. Pretty soon I saw her moving her feet, and she reached down and moved the footrests of the wheelchair out of the way. Then, to the delight of the audience, she got out of the wheelchair, and we watched her push it to the parking lot! She had received a touch from God!
James 2:22 NIV says, His faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. You have to start somewhere to put yourself in position to receive your miracle. When you begin to do your part, God can do His part. Like the woman in the wheelchair, put your faith into action.
If all you can move is a finger, move it.
If all you can move is a toe, move it.
If all you can do is blink an eye, blink it.
Start to move your faith into action, and believe God to bring the miracle you need!
