Milestone Life is a blog where each week we celebrate stories of changed lives. We know that some stories are a work in progress, and not all have the perfect ending. But in each one of them, God is doing things that only He can do. As a church, we began this year with a time of prayer and fasting, and people filled a prayer wall with hundreds of requests. Today, we thought we’d share some of the answers to prayer and how God has shown up in amazing ways!
God provided in a big way. A beautiful woman of God who loves me. We met at the church behind Taco Casa and through serving at Milestone we met at Elevate! We marry in 4 days. Praise the Lord! She is my hallelujah.
This time 2 years ago—I was devastated. My marriage of over 30 years was attacked. Today—HOPE-FILLED and thankful for God’s restoration! PRAISE BE TO GOD.
At Prepare last year I prayed for a miracle baby for friends after 13 years of marriage. They had a baby in October. Last year my brother reached out after 3 years of not talking to the family. A friend I’ve been praying for gave her life to Jesus. Expectant for all Jesus is going to do.
I’ve been weighed down by my past for 5 years. On Tuesday I felt the chains fall and I feel more free now than I’ve felt in a long time.
Praise! Prepare 2017: Believing to get pregnant. Prepare 2018: Have a two month old baby boy!
If you need a breakthrough right now, you’re not alone.
Philippians 4:6-7 says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
When we go through something painful or challenging our natural instinct is to become anxious, fearful, and worried. Paul reminds us that God wants us to present our requests to Him and in exchange we receive the kind of peace you can’t fathom or explain.
God works supernaturally even in situations that seem impossible. He’s working even when we we can’t see it. When we choose to move toward God in our challenges, we allow our pain to be shaped into a testimony for His glory.
What drives you to pray is not discipline or religious duty – it ultimately comes down to how much you depend on God.
