A satisfied soul loathes the honeycomb, but to a hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet. – (Proverbs 27:7 NKJV)
Chauncey Crandall is a friend of mine and a heart specialist, one of the best in the nation. Chauncey had twin sons, and when his sons were 20 years old, one son got Leukemia. Chauncey believed in healing and in miracles. Everybody and his dog prayed for that son, that he would live. But he died.
When is son died, Chauncey was holding him, and he said, “God, I will never stop praying for the sick. I will walk in anointing and I will believe in the miraculous.” As he held his son, his dead son in his arms, the glory of the Lord came on him.
Since then, Chauncey has written a book called, Raising the Dead, about his experience with the miraculous. Now that is crazy faith! Chauncey goes all over the world, raises the dead, and sees miracles like I have almost never seen. You see, Chauncey could have said, “God, You betrayed me. You didn’t let my son live.” But he didn’t let that betrayal become a barrier to his faith. He allowed it to become a blessing because he never stopped believing in the power of God.
If we will believe, even if it doesn’t turn out exactly the way we want it to, surely blessing He will bless us. Because Jesus always shows up when you put your faith in Him.
So, hang in there, because in due season, we shall reap if we faint not. And thanks be to God Who always leads us to triumph in Christ.
Jesus, I declare that Your power brings the miraculous. In the same way that You brought Lazarus back to life You can bring people back to life today. But when my miracle doesn’t come, give me the strength to press through barriers to receive my blessing on the other side.
