Right now I need a miracle
Hurry up now, I need a miracle
**It’s amazing when we rush God and we need him to hurry at our aid. He’s always on time when we can’t see our way out. I’ve been in situations and felt trapped like my oxygen supply was escaping me and in the midnight hour!! He turns it around. I’ve been blessed to witness an over abundance of miracles that have left me speechless at times yet demonstrating the true power of God.

Stranded, reaching out
I call your name but you’re not around
I say your name but you’re not around
I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
**This part is so profound because again when all resources are gone, people left, and distractions and it’s just you and GOD. Face to face. Becareful he’s watching you. You start to reach out because you realize you have nothing left, nothing else to pull from, no tricks up your sleeves, your cell phone is broken or it’s been shut off, you run to someone’s house for help and they are not home. You find yourself in a desert or a forest alone. At least you think your alone. You call out finally to God but you don’t see him, You call again you don’t feel him. And with all transparency and vulnerability you finally surrender and say… I need you Father RIGHT NOW!!! GOD ARRIVES

What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?

So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down
I think I’m losing my mind now
It’s in my head, darling I hope
That you’ll be here, when I need you the most
So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down
D-Don’t let me down
**Our biggest setback with allowing God to do a great thing in our lives is are ability to release control due to fear and disappointment. We are afraid of being let down and the inability for the EGO to repair itself. God designed these moments of vulnerability to exhibit how he’s sovereign. We fear if anyone will be around during these times. A stability factor that makes us think we need something or someone outside of God.

and lean not on your own understanding;

and he will make your paths straight.[a]

Running out of time
I really thought you were on my side
But now there’s nobody by my side
**We always are of the mindset that we are running out of time not realizing who has the power to rise the sun and set the moon daily. Yet we are frantic feeling like we are running out time. God’s timing is perfect. You could feel as if the walls are closing in on you but for God that’s only a split second. For you it may feel like an eternity. In a blink it’s gone! The problem is solved and you find yourself wondering how you just survived the miracle. He was right by your side and he didn’t let you down.

I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
**God has granted me many miracles and my life exemplifies living proof of that. He won’t let you down!!
