10 signs that indicate when your miracle is about to happen

We all know the importance of signs. If it weren’t for the signs that govern our highways, we would be lost. This also rings true in our spiritual life… if the Lord did not guide us through signs, we would be inundated and lost.

The Holy Spirit helps us interpret the signs that GOD gives us from time to time to make us aware of the progress we are making.

While I have listed 10 signs that GOD gave Joshua and the Israelites on their journey to the promised land, you may find most of them or a few depending on how GOD is leading you, but I hope I have covered all possible signs. . Because this is the largest portion of Scripture where we see so many signs from GOD! Amen.

In the Book of Joshua, we see GOD’s people making this long journey to the promised land. Moses is dead and Joshua has to take his place and lead the Israelites to the land flowing with milk and honey. Although it seems disconcerting to Joshua, GOD assured him that he would be with him just as he was with Moses. Joshua thus encouraged is ready to take on the enormous task.

This journey is very symbolic of our spiritual journey because it is characterized by fear, uncertainty, opposition, but well complemented by divine strength, favor and help. Amen.

So this brings us to the first sign.

  • Sign #1: GOD speaks to us and prepares our hearts for success. He gives us hope that he will be with us on our journey and help us along the way. Amen.

So we read in verse 7,

Joshua {1:7} Just be strong and very brave

And later in verse 8:

Joshua {1:8}:
This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth; but you will meditate on it day and night, so that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it; because then you will make your way prosperous, and everything will turn out well for you.

In verse 11, we hear Joshua speak prophetically to the people that they would cross the Jordan in 3 days.

Joshua {1:11}:
‘Prepare for yourselves provisions, for in three days you will cross this Jordan, to enter to possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess.’

How did you know they were leaving in 3 days? It comes from the Lord and He knew it! Amen.
Child of GOD, the Lord will use His prophets to speak an inspired Word through the Spirit of GOD in your situation. This could be a divine encounter with an angel of GOD or a message from a gifted prophet. Many of these instances are evidenced throughout the Bible, for example when the angel Gabriel comes to Mary and announces the good news. Even today GOD sends his angels to reveal his plan and time to the devotees. GOD always asserts himself through his chosen instruments!

We thus arrive at:

  • Sign #2: He reveals His will through an inspired word.

Joshua then sends 2 spies to check out the land. The two spies return after 3 days and set out to cross the Jordan the next day.

Joshua {2:22}:
And they went, and came to the mountain, and stayed there three days, until the pursuers returned, and the pursuers searched for them all the way, and did not find them.

Joshua {3:1}:
And Joshua got up early in the morning; and departing from Shittim, they came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and stayed there before crossing over.

Why is this little detail that you propose in 3 days important or significant? Because it sends us a message that GOD was actually working behind the scenes, arranging their circumstances so that His Word would come to pass, that is, to allow them to cross the Jordan in 3 days! This is a very significant event because it shows the faithfulness of GOD, that He is in control. Amen.

So we have

  • Sign #3: He will bring His inspired word to pass.

This is exactly what I mean by a signal. And they are so easy to miss if one does not search with a thoughtful heart. We need to be very aware within our hearts that GOD has indeed done what might have seemed impossible at first. We have to be sensitive to what the Lord does because it is in all these little miracles that GOD can reveal his power and glory to us and we know that we serve an ALMIGHTY GOD.

  • Sign number 4: He sends the right people into your life to help you.

Joshua {1:16} And they answered Joshua, saying, Whatever you command us, we will do, and wherever you send us, we will go.

GOD raises up people to help us in our times of need. He causes all things to work together for our good.

  • Sign #5: Put the fear of the Lord in the heart of the enemy and the enemy will know that he will fall. In some cases, GOD even made the enemy confess that He will do what he promised. For example, Saul spoke to David and confessed that GOD had indeed given him the victory (1 Samuel 26:25).

So when the spies meet Rahab, what does she have to tell them? That the entire enemy nation melted with fear because the Lord GOD had given them the land.

Joshua {2:9}:
And she said to the men: I know that the Lord has given you the land, and that your terror has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you.

  • Sign #6: He will magnify and exalt you in the eyes of all. He will make his face shine on you and have mercy on you. The people you lead will bear witness to your virtue for the sake of Christ and will follow you resolutely.

Joshua {3:7}:
And Jehovah said to Joshua: From this day I will begin to magnify you in the eyes of all Israel, so that they may know that as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.

  • Sign #7: He will do the impossible and leave a memorial to remind you of His greatness.

In the case of the Israelites, the Lord caused the waters of the Jordan to stand still and stand still like a heap.

Joshua {3:13}:
And it shall come to pass that when the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan will be cut off from the waters that come down from on high; and they will be on a lot.

You will have a lasting memorial before you ALWAYS of His great power in action and you will know without a doubt that this could NOT have happened without the Lord. It is a good idea to record these events when you know without a doubt that the Lord has moved in your life. Amen!

Joshua {4:22 – 24}:
And he spoke to the children of Israel, saying: When tomorrow your children ask their parents, saying: What do these stones mean? {4:22} Then ye shall make known to your children, saying, Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry ground. John 4:23 For the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you, until you crossed over, as the LORD your God did with the Red Sea, which he dried up before us, until we had crossed: {4:24} to that all the peoples of the earth know the hand of the Lord, which is mighty, so that you may fear the Lord your God forever.

  • Sign #8: He will cleanse and sanctify you to prepare you to enter the blessing. Amen. This reveals the holy nature of GOD.

The Israelites had to be circumcised to prepare to enter the Holy Land.

Joshua {5:2}:
At that time the Lord said to Joshua: Make sharp knives for yourself, and circumcise the children of Israel a second time.

  • Sign #9: He will assure you of His Presence and unfailing love to boost your faith and trust in the midst of war.

As the Israelites prepared for battle, GOD sent an angel to guide them further and lead them on the path of victory!

This shows the loving heart of GOD and his perfect understanding of our weaknesses. When we are weak, then He is strong! Amen.

GOD had already cast great fear upon his enemies so much so that no one was allowed to enter or leave the city of Jericho. The Israelites knew it but GOD still knew that his fears were real to them. So he sent his angel to tell them about the technique he had planned for them to gain victory. And what a wonderful technique indeed! — one that would bring him ultimate glory! They would have to circle the city walls several times for seven days, and when the long trumpet blast sounded, the wall would collapse on its own! Hallelujah!

This way they would not have a single doubt that GOD was going before them. Amen.

GOD loves us very much, right?

  • Sign number 10: He causes His people to raise a cry of victory to Him and bring Him glory!

Joshua {6:5}:
And it will come to pass that when they blow the ram’s horn for a long time, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people will shout with great joy; and the wall of the city will crumble, and the people will go up each one straight ahead of him.

It is the heart of GOD to lead and guide us and finally give us the victory.

The Christian walk becomes easier when we learn to interpret the signs that GOD shows us. These little signs are built into the journey along the way so that one does not get tired or discouraged.

The signs become more and more evident to us as we become aware in our hearts and sensitized to His ways. When the Pharisees asked Jesus for a sign, He asked them to be aware in their hearts.

See Matthew {16:1-3}:

The demand for a sign
The Pharisees and Sadducees approached Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.

He replied: “When night comes, you say: ‘It will be good weather, because the sky is red’, and in the morning: ‘Today there will be a storm, because the sky is red and cloudy’. You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you do not know how to interpret the signs of the times.

Why does Jesus rebuke them for not being able to interpret the signs? Because ALL creation KNOWS his Creator and there is no excuse.

Novels {1:20}:
“Because since the creation of the world, the invisible qualities of God, his eternal power and divine nature, have become clearly visible, being understood of what has been done, so that people have no excuse”.

Signs help us maintain the momentum we build up through our obedience because when we see intermediate results, a shift from believing to KNOWING occurs. You know that your efforts are paying off and that your patience and perseverance are paying off. It’s like cold water for a weary soul! By being encouraged in this way, you build anticipation and expectation, which releases more and more power into your situation until a perceptible change occurs and the miracle manifests! Amen. Glory to Jesus!

GOD always works through us. So we must surrender to Him and cooperate with Him as we learn to interpret His signs so that we can enter the promised land. Amen.

May you be wounded in your walk with GOD.

All glory belongs to Jehovah forever and ever. Hallelujah!!!
