LIFE IN THE SPIRIT: A LIFE OF THE MIRACULOUS

KEY SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 8:18 KJV “Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion”.

Christianity is a life of supernatural occurrences. Christianity without the supernatural is another humanistic organization practicing moral virtues.  The birth of our Lord Jesus was a Miracle. His life was filled with outstanding miracles. Our birth into the faith, was a miraculous one. John 3:8 KJV” The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit”. We live by faith and not by sight (2 Corinth 5:7)

LIVING the miraculous life must be our natural way of living.  The Lord taught us in John 6:28, that the works of God is to believe in Him. He also said in John 14:12, that those who would believe in Him would do the works that He did, and even do greater works. From the two scriptures above, we deduce that, we must do everything believing the Lord who is always with us. The Lord also added in John 14:13, that, whatsoever we would ask in His name he would do it, to bring glory to the Father. Believe in the Lord and speak in His name. Jesus is always the miracle worker. Let’s take the following illustration. My son who was in school preparing for his WASSCE (WEST African SENIOR SECONDARY CERTIFICATE EXAMINATION) called me to inform me that he had not been feeling well for some time, and that the doctor says he had high blood pressure. I burst into anger and said you don’t have any high pressure, go back and check. That was the end of that condition. My action was out of faith in the Lord Jesus who sets us free. He intervened to restore the condition.

To lead the supernatural life, you must feed your heart with the word of God such that you would not easily yield to the   ordinary natural way of doing things.

Proverbs 4:23 KJV” Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life”. What fills your heart is that which would show up when the demand arises. Assure yourself that, the Lord Jesus is ever with you, and would always honour His word in your life. We are for signs and wonders and must renew our minds concerning working out the supernatural power of God. Jesus is our miracle worker, so your part is to believe in Him, and boldly speak in His name, expecting that, he would honour His part of the agreement. (John 14:14)

CONFESSION

I am in perfect union with my Lord Jesus. I am in Him and He is in me. We are in perfect partnership. As I speak in His name, He honors it, bringing glory to His own name
