Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
- Ephesians 3:20
Wherever we find the word " measure", "large" or "small" in the English Bible our immediate understanding points to size. And when we think of size, we think of volume, capacity and as we continue to analyse the concept eventually the human brain hits a wall called limitation.
This Bible verse literally states that the measure of God's power at work in us is relative to the power we allow in us. With this translation, there is a limiting factor that is our physical state. However, if we look beyond the physical into the realm of the spirit, then we understand that we have access to an unlimited power base. This verse simply informs us of the magnitude of the power of God. That power is immeasurable, it will always exceed what we can ask for or even what we can imagine. That power is in us, ready and waiting to be at work through us.
On the day of pentecost the prophecy of John the baptist (Mark 1:8) came to pass, the disciples were baptised with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a seal of acceptance from God and through which the Lord may reach us. There are 3 evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit - the power of the cross, being a witness of God (Acts 1:8) and speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4).
When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we become carriers of Gods power. What we now do with the power is up to us.
To prepare for a miracle we must first believe in God's word, believe that the spirit of God is within us and then learn how to release the power of God for a miracle. The more we allow the word of God to permeate our soul and spirit, the stronger our spiritual reality will become. Jesus demonstrated the power of the spirit with the healing and miracles he performed.
Miracles are supernatural interventions by God. In the Bible, some of the occurences include the feeding of the 4,000 and 5,000, walking on water, healing the man born blind, turning water into wine, calming the storm at sea and raising the certfied dead. Jesus said in John 14:12 - "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." Now, Jesus would not have said this if it were not true.
The power of God is at work in you right now; how do you choose to release it?
Father of light draw me closer, help me gain understanding of your power that is at work in me. I receive grace to operate the supernatural with the evidence of miracles, signs and wonders. Amen.
