KEY SCRIPTURES: John 6:2 KJV “And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.”
Miracles are mysterious acts to men, yet they are the normal acts of God. Miraculous acts answer the questions of men.
All men, no matter their status, colour, race or what have you, will always be drawn to where miracles occur. Christianity was birth through the miraculous resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Christianity has survived the times of life through a stream of miracles.
Without the miraculous Christianity is just another religion. Every minister of God should never underrate the importance of miracles.
The truth is that every child of God and every minister can be a vessel for the miraculous.
Our key scripture reads, John 6:2 KJV” And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. ” They followed Him because they saw the miracles. He did this to alleviate people of situations and conditions that they could not free themselves by any humanly possible means.
In Mark 16, the Lord revealed that certain signs shall follow them that believe. He was simply saying they shall be miracle workers. We have come to know that it is not all so-called believers who are workers of miracles. Acts 2:22 said the following about Jesus. It said “Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you, by miracles wonders and signs……” Note the word APPROVED. One goes through a regime of required standards to be ultimately approved. He passed some standards for the Father to declare that, this is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased. What did He really do?
He completely threw away His will and lived only for the will of the Father.
John 8:29 KJV “And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.” It is the presence of the Father with Him that makes the difference. (Acts 10:38)
The Father is ever present with everybody, yet it is those who have turned their will over to Him, that He works through. Acts like fasting, prayer, bible study and giving unto God are all practices, one does as a result of His submitted will. There may be individuals who may, subject themselves to fasting prayer and many more, yet may not have a submitted will to the Lord.
For God to stay with one, to do mighty works through him, it is not what He does but who he or she is ; whether a surrendered life or not?
God will always want to show His presence but what limits or allows Him is whether the individual has a submitted will or not. This is the secret of the life of miracles.
I am yielded to the Lord. My will is dead to my personal cravings, but alive to the word, will and ways of God. My Father is first in all I do. I seek His will His power works through me, to save many asking questions because of pain.
THOUGHT: GOD WOULD USE ANY TOOL HE CAN TURN ANY WAY HE LIKES
