Do You believe in the Miraculous? Signs and Wonders?
Praise the Lord forever, it is with Joy and Gladness, that i write this epistle to you today and i know it will bless you greatly.
We live in a kingdom of Sign and Wonders, our God is a mighty God, he works miracles, signs and wonders to the end that the world may see and come to term with the knowledge of his existence, when God do a miracle, he’s essentially doing so in the life of his beloved so that the world will understand that he is the Lord and there is no one like him.
God will not come down to do the miracle, you desire, he will only release it into your hands base on the level of your Faith, that is why the Bible says “Be it unto you, according to your Faith – Matthew 9:29 “.
We pull down Miracles, Signs and Wonders by our FAITH.
What you don’t believe, can never work for you, you need to establish your faith on the potency of the power of God, if you must see true miracles in your Life as a Christian, our problems are not too big, for God to intervene, and work a miracle in our Favor, but our Faith is the Passport that access us into the realm of unlimited breakthrough, The Bible says “Surely, Goodness and Mercy, shall follow me, all the days of my Life…., – Psalm 23:6 “.
We can see that from the Scriptures above, God showed us, how that, he desires us to experience “Goodness, and Mercy (favor) “, daily, for the rest of our lives.
So God is indeed a good God, but we must understand his thought and intent for our lives, in order for them to be made manifest, untill you believe in the miraculous, you may never experience it in your Life, but it is real and it exists.
The miraculous is essentially, the manifestation of the power of God, and the spirit of God in the lives of the believers and his beloved ones, God proving himself as the Lord and so that we can know that beside him, there is no other.
In the ministry of Jesus, The miraculous was rampant, he did so many exploits and miracles, set the captives free, liberate the oppress, so that the world can know that the Lord, he is God! ( 1 Kings 18:39 ).
Let me share you a testimony of miraculous abundance that I had some years back, while i was seeking admission into the University, i was praying and believing the lord for the Admission to come, and it came, i was excited and joyous, but then there was no enough money, so my Mum decided to borrow from a neighbor, and he borrowed us te money, i counted it, it was #70,000 and i went to the bank to deposit the money, only for me to get to the cashier, and she counted the money and discover that it was #80,000, she questioned me a whole lot about it, because i told her, i brought 70k to desposit, she was surprise, and so i was, she gave me the extra #10,000 and i returned home with Joy, paid my Tithe and had some of my needs met with the remnant, God is faithful, he always provide for his own, Miracles are meant to boost our Faith in God, they are design to help us understand the fact that, our God is dependable and reliable, as there is no closed case with God, he is dependable and trust worthy!
I have establish the fact that, FAITH is a major requirement for you to enter the world of unending, miracles, signs and Wonders, when your Faith says YES’ God can not say No – Archbishop Benson Idahosa.
Faith is the force with which, we pull down what is ours from heaven.
God is more than enough for all that we can need and we will need as his children on the earth, he can meet our needs and supernatural provide and make a way out for us where there seems to be no way, he’s a specialist in doing the unusual, just to glorify his name in our lives ( Isaiah 43:19 ).
Before, we go further, I would love you to read this striking Testimony from Dunamis Church in Abuja and Faith Tabernacle Otta, so that you know, there is no limit to what God can do and wants to do, when we choose to follow and serve him above everything and anything in Life.
But, Why Do we need the Miraculous?
This might probably be the Question in the heart of somebody, well the answer is very simple; there are a lot of reasons why we need God’s miracle and intervention;
- Because he is a powerful God, he does miracles and so we must not under utilize what is available to us in Christ Jesus.
- Because we live in a wicked world, where evil and wickedness abounds in the heart of men, it takes divine intervention for us to have dominion over the power of darkness.
- Because God wants to show forth his glory in our lives, so that the world can know, we serve a true and living God.
- When, the enemy comes in like a flood, miraculous is one of the ways by which the spirit of God raise a standard against him.
- People will not believe in our God if we lack proofs in our lives, The Bible says, Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe ( John 4:48 ). You might want to save a soul, untill there is something spectacular in your life, the person will not find a special reason why he/she must follow your God.
- Miracles and strange intervention of God always put the devil to shame and glorify the name of God, this is yet another essential reason why we must believe the miracle working power of God.
- It delivers Testimony; when a miracle happens, you have a testimony to share to the Glory of God, and to also edify other brethren, to trust and believe in he God of signs and wonders.
- It brings about Profound Joy and Happiness, it helps you to serve God with Joy and Gladness.
- It strengthen your Faith, when all hope is gone in a particular direction and God eventually came through in the die minute, your Faith becomes stronger in him.
- It sets free from captivity of the devil, there are folks who are suffering from sickness, infirmities, insanity, blindness and more, when the power of God hits them, they are set free, and can go and have a life, fulfill purpose and destiny, get saved and serve the Lord they God with the rest of their lives.
There are countless reasons why we need miracle and divine intervention in Life as a Christian, now that i have given you some of them;
How do we provoke or command Miracles to Happen ?
- By Faith : It is important, you know that where Faith is alive, Miracle abounds, those that experience Miracle daily in their live don’t have two heads, they only have faith in God to a point whereby they can pull down Miracle, Signs and Wonders as they want. The Bible says, “Be it according to your Faith – Matthew 9:29 “. God can not help you beyond the level of your Faith, that is why The Bible says, “The Just shall live by his Faith – Habakkuk 2:4 “. The Faith you have in God is what determines the steps and action you take, and this in turn, determines the level of exploits you have as a Believer. For instance; if a woman is believing God for the fruit of the womb after marriage, she can by FAITH go and buy all the Baby things, all that a baby will need, in terms of clothing and the likes, she is not been stupid, she is only proofing to God, that her Faith is alive, and Heaven as no choice than to deliver her baby, while, i was seeking for admission into the University, It was a little bit difficulty, but against all odds, i still went ahead and bought all the school things, and Wow! Glory to God, my Faith worked, I was admitted!
- By Loving The Lord : When you are a Lover of God, you are eligible for miracles in Life, now i am talking about Die-hard lovers, loving and serving God passionately with your heart and your Life. The Truth is, the best of God is reserved for the Lovers of God, so the more you are in love with the Lord, the more eligible you become to receive from him. The Bible says “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. – ( 1 Corinthians 2:9 ). The Love of God that is burning in your heart, grants you access into the supernatural realm of existence.
- Living by the word of God : A conscious constructive Christian Life that is fashioned after the word of God is another way, by which you enjoy the miracles of God, the word of God is creative, The Bible says, ” Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. – ” ( Hebrews 11:3 ). So The word of God has the ability to create, Creative Miracles are made manifest by the power in the word of God, Jesus said, “The word I speak to you, they are SPIRIT and they are LIFE” ( John 6:63 ). So when you walk by the word of God, and live by the ways of the spirit, you are bound to experience the Miracles of God. When the children of Israel were to cross Jordan, The word of God came to his servant, Moses and it says “Tell my people to move forward… Exodus 14:15 ” which they obeyed and the miracle happened, the water parted into two, this Miracle happened by the word of God that came to his Servant.
- The Holy Spirit : The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, that Jesus promised us, he says, “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you ( John 14:26 ). So The Holy Spirit is the third person in the God-head, and we found out that, when Jesus wanted to send his apostles out to go and preach, he gave them power over unclean spirit, this is the holyspirit that came upon them, when he was glorified and they apostle in obedience to his instruction, gathered in the Upper room, the experience they had, also testifies to what the Holy Spirit can do, raising the dead, Walking in Faith, Dominion and Boldness are all the works of the Holy Spirit, so as a Christian, if you truly want to live in the realm of Power and Miracles, you must pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in Tongues, The Bible says “If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” ( Luke 11:13 ). So you must ask for the Holy Spirit, before you can have him. The Bible says “16- Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17- And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18- they will pick up snakes with their hands, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not harm them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will be made well.”… ( Mark 16:17 – 18 ). So The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is what empowers believers to walk the miraculous dimension of Power, without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, you can not work in Miracle, by redemption, we were not meant to be miracle seekers, we were essentially meant to be miracle workers!
- By Obedience : Miracles are not far fetch, The God-life that resides inside of you makes you eligible to walk in Miracle, but you must be obedient to the Voice of God, when he speaks to you, and to the word of God tat you read in the Scriptures. The Bible essentially delivers to us, revelation (Light) from God’s word and on the strength of that revelation, we can go and do exploits, The Spirit inside of us grant us access into deep mysteries of God and when we run with them, we are bless. Taking a close look at the first Miracle of Jesus, in John 2 : 1 – 11, Jesus mother (Mary) told them, whatever he tells you to do, do it! And that was it, the Miracle happened because they obey, if we take a close look at the instruction he gave them, it doesn’t really make sense getting water fetch into the pot, while what we really needed was “Wine”, but that is how Miracle happens, God’s foolishness is wiser than the wisdom of man. So if you want to walk in the miraculous, and you desire to see the move of God, in signs and wonders, in your Life, Be obedient to whatever God tells you to do.
I pray that from today, by the help of The Holy Spirit, you will begin to see Miracles, Signs and Wonders happening in your Life, to the end that unbelievers will come and follow you to serve the living God!
God bless you in Jesus name!~
