“When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and was imploring Him to come down and heal his son; for he was at the point of death” (John 4:47).
In desperate circumstances we desperately ask of God. Understandably, we long for a miracle. Our faith is the seed of our imagining that God will do something. Perhaps what we need is a greater imagination that allows God to work in ways that reach miraculously beyond the limitations of our asking. We must not allow desperation to blind us to other possibilities. Dare to ask of God and expect more of an answer than your circumstances would ever ask of Him.
