Miracles, the manifest power of God

One area of the manifest power of God is Miracles, they are not a past event but a now reality, they are the believers Heritage.

We might cry out and say where is the power? What we should be asking is where is the true servant looking for an opportunity for Fathers power to flow and glorify Him.

A well lit room needs no additional power in order to increase the amount of light, it is the dark place that needs to be lit.

Dead religion will never compete with demonic opposition.

Pharaoh said, “Work a miracle.” Aaron threw his staff before  and his servants, and it became a serpent (Exodus 7:8-13).

Jesus initiated His earthly ministry by turning water into wine at a wedding feast in Cana of Galilee. He sent His twelve disciples to preach, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons.” He sent another seventy disciples, and they returned, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”

In the context of giving the Great Commission just before His ascension, Jesus promised, “These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Unbelief is the greatest single hindrance to walking in the supernatural. Even those who walk in faith find it difficult to impossible to bring forth any miracles in atmospheres of unbelief. When Jesus went to heal the daughter of the synagogue official, He allowed no one to accompany Him, except Peter and James and John, and the mother and father of the girl (Mark 5:35-43).

When Peter went to raise Dorcas (Tabitha) from the dead, he sent everyone from the room (Acts 9:36-42).

Jesus was seen as the carpenter’s son in His home town, and could do no miracles there except that He laid hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He wondered at their unbelief (Mark 6:1-6).

Paul provided a balancing word that puts the supernatural into perspective: All do not have gifts of healings, do they: All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they? But earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way. Love never fails (1 Corinthians 12:30-31; 13:8a).

Love itself should motivate sincere believers to works of faith. Faith works by love (Galatians 5:6).
