Question: I know that Infertility and miscarriage are caused by some form of sickness, disease or complication and that Jesus is seated because His work is finished. So what if it’s not a sickness or disease preventing conception? I have major damage in my reproductive organs. I also have friends whose tubes were removed and another friend who has gone through early menopause. So in situations like these is a creative miracle needed? If so, I know miracles happen everyday and nothing is impossible with God but my question is “How do you believe for a creative miracle if Jesus work is finished?”
Answer: You are right that generally infertility and miscarriage are caused by a sickness, disease or complication in the mother, father or unborn baby and that Jesus has already provided healing for ALL forms of sickness and disease through the finished work of the Cross. And anyone who believes in Jesus can lay hold of the victory Jesus purchased by co-labouring with Him to see His Healing power released for that area or situation in their lives.
If there’s something missing or something has been removed from your body (such as reproductive organs) through an abnormality, birth defect or surgery then a creative miracle is needed because you can’t heal something that is not there. So a creative miracle is required to replace what was damaged or missing.
The good news is that Paul described the gifts of the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12 and he revealed that healing and miracles are available to and through the body of Christ today:
Now there are distinctive varieties and distributions of endowments; gifts, extraordinary powers distinguishing certain Christians, due to the power of divine grace operating in their souls by the Holy Spirit and they vary, but the Holy Spirit remains the same. 5 And there are distinctive varieties of service and ministration, but it is the same Lord Who is served. 6 And there are distinctive varieties of operation of working to accomplish things, but it is the same God Who inspires and energises them all in all. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Holy Spirit; the evidence, the spiritual illumination of the Spirit for good and profit. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 Amp
The Apostle Paul then goes on in verses 8-11 to list the gifts (manifestation of extraordinary powers) that flow by the power of God’s divine grace operating in our souls (mind, will, intellect) which are; wisdom, knowledge and understanding, wonder-working faith, powers of healing, working of miracles, prophesy, discerning of Spirits, various kinds of tongues, and the ability to interpret such tongues.
Paul not only revealed what was available but also how it flows to and through the body of Christ, and that is through the manifestation of the indwelling Holy Spirit! In fact when this power is at work IN US God can do superabundantly far over and beyond what we can even dream think or imagine:
Now to Him Who, by in consequence of the action of His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams— Ephesians 3:20 Amp
This truth will bring hope and be an encouragement to many but will also be a stumbling block to some because rather than resting in Jesus ability they will end up struggling in their own self effort, trying to make a miracle happen. But as we just read in the Scripture above, how we see God do far over and beyond what we can even dream, think or imagine is according to “His power” that is “at work in us”! It is God’s power working in us and not our own! So let me encourage you not to get caught up in your flesh trying to make your breakthrough happen, but instead look to Jesus, who is the author and perfector of your faith, because when it comes to the miraculous always remember that it is:
Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. Zechariah 4:6b NIV
So don’t struggle in your own ability, because healing or creative miracles will not manifest by human will, head knowledge or by the work of your flesh. They flow by the power and fruit of the Holy Spirit. We simply need to come into agreement with and partner (co-labour) with God’s indwelling Spirit so that He can reveal His wisdom, revelation, counsel and supernatural power for our breakthrough.
So if you need a miraculous healing or creative miracle, don’t struggle in your own ability, instead rest in Jesus power by partnering with Him so that His life, presence and supernatural power can freely flow!
