Rapper DMX has always publicly acknowledged his love for God and belief in his Christian faith and recently he had the opportunity to stand behind a pulpit to deliver a message about miracles being birthed from tragedy.
“If I wasn’t a threat to the devil he wouldn’t waste his time. If I wasn’t special to God, how would I know what He’s willing to do for me? We know what He’s able to do. The word says, ‘All things are possible through Christ who strengthens,’ Amen!” DMX shouted. “So we know what He’s able to do How can you know what He’s willing to do until you’ve been placed in a situation where you need Him to do it for you? If you haven’t been somewhere where you need God to get you out of the situation, you wouldn’t know what He’s willing to do for you. We know what he’s able to do but we won’t know what He’s willing to do until we’re there.”
Those in attendance cheered as DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, passionately exhorted:
“I say miracles only happen on the platform of tragedy. If there’s not a difficult situation, if there’s not a situation where you can’t see you possibly getting through on your own then where’s the potential for the miracle?” he questioned. “If it wasn’t that difficult than it would be just another situation that you got through with a little bit of time, but because it was something bigger than you, something that you know took more than you to get you through; It’s not that God made these things happen but what I’m saying is that He allowed those things to happen, just so you know what He’s willing to do for you.”
