When You Need a Miracle : Experiencing the Power of the God of the Impossible

by Lloyd John Ogilvie

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Lloyd John Ogilvie has been quoted in many devotions shared by me and my husband. In his new book, When You Need A Miracle, his spirit is evident and his work is anointed.

According to Ogilvie, God has a miracle waiting just for you whatever is going on in your life. This book proves the point effortlessly. He asserts that relying on God's Holy Word helps us see more clearly what His will is for us, whatever kind of miracle we need. For each miracle, there is a person in the Bible who needed that very same miracle. The miracles are matched with the servants of God, making it easy to find the knowledge and encouragement we need at any given time. The stories Ogilvie uses of people in today's day help us to relate to the scriptures given, emphasizing that God is truly the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Each of the miracles covered in this book is something Christians face at one time or another. We don't always know where to go in the Bible to find the help we need, this book makes it easy. I would recommend this book to everyone I know, and probably will. -- Tammy Hornbeck, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

So often, the greatest needs—in the family, at work, in relationships—go unmet. Why? Because Christians look only to what is possible in their own limited strength.

From his longtime pastoral experience, bestselling author Lloyd John Ogilvie points readers to our God, who can meet every need...because He is Lord of the impossible!

Showing how the men and women of the Bible experienced God’s unlimited power and steadfast help, Ogilvie challenges Christians to consider their own impossible situations—

  • the difficult person
  • the unachievable goal
  • the insurmountable limitation
  • the irredeemable relationship

If they risk trusting God to unleash His miraculous strength in their lives, believers will find their impossibilities are a “prelude to God’s amazing possibilities”...for healing, reconciliation, and growth.
