How difficult it is to really believe; to take Jesus at His Word often requires a faith beyond our abililty to believe. I believe in prayer and in a God of miracles, but when I was diagnosed with lung cancer in December 2002, I was faced with a challenge: do I really believe God or not?

The disciples thought they knew who Jesus was: they had already worked with Him for some time and witnessed some of the most amazing miracles; they were the closest friends Jesus had. Yet something was to happen that night on the sea which caused them to question who Jesus really was; it was as if they had never known who He was before.

For so many people Jesus is some distant person; God Himself is distant and unapproachable. If I were to ask you, 'Where is God', some would say, 'To find God I would have to go to church', some would respond, 'God, He's up there'. But where is 'there'? I've got good news for you today, Jesus is called 'Emmanuel, God with us' - wherever you find yourself in life, God is there with you.

I can tell you how close Jesus is to you: just breathe in, Jesus is as close as the air that fills your lungs. One prayer and He is always there with you. How can we touch Him? It is not a physical touch. You touch Him when you call His Name, when you talk to Him. Reach out to Him today. One word from Jesus can calm the storm, heal your broken heart. Jesus says to you today, 'Come unto Me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.'

You can't have a miracle without first having a problem! If the disciples had not been in a sinking boat during a storm at sea, there would have been no miracle with Jesus walking on the water. If you want to see miracles, God is going to use your problem, your difficulty, your crisis in order to work the miracle. That crisis you have - that sickness, that cancer, that arthritis, that financial problem - God will use this to create a miracle.

God always answers prayer! But He does not work miracles alone. He needs people involved in them. When He miraculously fed 5,000, He first needed 5,000 hungry people, as well as a boy with five loaves and two fishes. In order that you receive your miracle, God needs you to become part of the answer.

I have learnt after more than 60 years of ministry that God always answers prayer. And I want to encourage you. God never fails - He cannot fail. But to get the answer at the right hour we have to be ready, we have to be obedient, and God will answer - at the last minute.

What is faith? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things you do not see. Faith is not something intellectual in your mind. You can't learn faith in university. Faith is learnt through the experience of life. It is only through trials and tribulations that you learn the power and effectiveness of faith.

I stand on the authority of the Word of God. I believe the Bible is true! When I was sick with cancer, I didn't go to a healing evangelist, I went to the Word of God, and God completely healed me - no operation, no treatment - I only had God and the Bible, and that is all I needed to confound the doctors. They were shocked, they didn't believe God - but I do, I believe in a God of power, of miracles.

'"I brought my son to Your disciples, but they could not cure him." Then Jesus rebuked the sickness, and the boy was healed at that very moment. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?" So, Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; nothing will be impossible for you."' (Matthew 17)
