o you believe in miracles? Do you also believe in Jesus, the God of miracles?
Miracles happen very quickly. I can say for myself that miracles happen very quickly in the way that I pray to God on a regular basis in my prayer closet.
~”Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”~James 5:16, KJV~
Whenever I go into my prayer closet, I ask God how He wants me to pray to Him. As I pray, the Holy Spirit of God guides me in the manner that I ought to pray and gives me the words to say.
One morning, I was praying to God in my prayer closet. As I prayed in my prayer closet, the Lord led me to make a jewelry purchase from a good friend of mine. I asked the Lord, “Why do You want me to make this purchase when I barely know the person?”

The Lord replied to me, “You will be blessed much. Just trust in me. I know what I am doing.”
~”For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.”~James 2:26, ESV~
I stepped out on faith, that morning, and made the jewelry purchase. Even though my finances were little at the time, God led me to make this purchase so that I could be a blessing to the seller of the jewelry. I reached out to the seller of the jewelry through social media and informed her that I purchased a couple of pieces of jewelry.
After I told her that I purchased the jewelry, the jewelry seller gave me a confirmation that I did the right thing by purchasing the jewelry. She said, “Thank You for your obedience.”
After I heard these words spoken, I was very stunned at the way that God handled this small act of faith as I stepped out in obedience and purchased the jewelry. I replied back, “You are welcome!”
A couple of hours later, I got a response back from the jewelry seller on social media. She created a social media post with pictures of me that demonstrated and showcased to the world of my Christ-likeness. I was very happy that she made this social media post and told her with gratitude, “Thank you so much!”
~”For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”~Ephesians 2:8, ESV~
I was so happy that day. I thanked God for giving me the courage to step out on faith in spite of me questioning God. I was not aware of the blessing that was going to come from me purchasing these couple of pieces of jewelry. I was really grateful for the blessing that came out of my obedience to God. Praise the Lord!

A couple of weeks later, I received the pieces of jewelry in the mail. I take good care of them as I accompany them with the dresses that I wear. They look very beautiful indeed! Praise God!
