KEY SCRIPTURE: John 12:49 KJV” For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”
The Lord Jesus, in the above key scripture reveals to us, what made Him, so effective. He spoke what the father asked him to say. We can know the meaning of what He was talking about by considering how he went about doing the work of God. The Lord Jesus knowing the father was in Him, talking through Him, always spoke Just as God would speak. I believe this is a truth the church of God is yet to grasp very well. Jesus never stood before a sick person and asked the Father to heal that person. He took the place of the Father, who resided in Him to act. He commanded the lame to rise up and walk. The man who laid by the pool of Bethesda for thirty-eight years was asked to take his bed and walk home.
The church of God has had very little impact in revealing the mighty power of God in her, because, the church has not come to the understanding that, it is God who is at work in her, both to will and to do of His good pleasure Philippians 2 :13. Dearly beloved child of God, to have God work through, you. You must understand how God intends to function through you. Like Jesus we must act for the Lord. Praying for the sick is good, but you function from a higher level when you act in God’s stead as our Lord did. He spoke like God would have spoken.
In Acts 9:34 Apostle Peter was taken to a disciple called Aeneas, who had been bed ridden for so many years. Peter announced to him, Jesus makes you well. That was the end of the affliction. In that moment it was the Lord who did the whole thing. Peter took the Lord’s place and allowed Him to work through him. If the Lord is in you, then you have the perfect anointing for every condition. Act and speak for Him.
God is present in me. I speak His words and act in His stead, knowing that He would always go into operation to honour His name. There is no condition too great or difficult, for if God is the one working through me, then every condition is very simple.

Joh 14:13 KJV” And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
