TODAY’S WORD: THE SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT BROUGHT ENDLESS SUPPLY OF MIRACLES
Today there is a release of special miracles and unusual miracles in every area of your life!
Acts 5:14-16 tells us what happened after there was an eruption of Gods power in the early church! The supply of the Spirit was in abundance and there was an eruption of signs wonders and miracles.
‘And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.) Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one’
An overflow of the anointing led to unusual miracles! The supply of the Spirit brought endless supplies of miracles!
It was the same experience when Phillip went down to Samaria, God’s power was at work and the devil was disgraced as there was an endless manifestation of God’s power resulting in miracles.
‘5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ unto them. 6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. 8 And there was great joy in that city.(Acts 8:5-8)
The overflow of the anointing brought an overflow of miracles; for when we daily walk in the power of God we daily experience the flow of the miraculous! And really anyone who enjoys a supply of the Spirit can walk in the miraculous. Stephen was an ordinary deacon, but the Bible records that he was ‘full of faith and power’ and thereby did great signs and wonders among the people.
‘8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.’(Acts 6:8)
Miracles, signs, and wonders are spiritual by-products of the anointing. This is why when the Apostles prayed for signs and wonders to be done by the Holy name of His son Jesus, God responded by pouring out more of the anointing. Now look at it very well, they prayed for miracles:
‘29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus’(Acts 4:29-30)
This was their prayer contents: boldness to preach the word and signs and wonders by the name of Jesus. But how did God answer these prayer requests?
‘31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.’(Acts 4:31)
God answers to his people’s request for signs and wonders and miracles were to release a supply of the Spirit in a greater dimension. It was this supply of the Spirit in Acts 4 that gave birth to the exploits that we will later read of in Acts 5, 6, 7, 8 and beyond! The supply of miracles is dependent on the supply of the Spirit.
Until the Spirit is supplied there are no miracles. It was said of John the Baptist in John 10:41 that he ‘did no miracle’. Now I won’t take this as a compliment. However, the difference between the ministry of John and that of Jesus was the supply of the Spirit; Jesus had the Spirit without measure. When the Spirit is supplied miracles cannot be quantified!
As you pray in the Spirit today a flow of special miracles and unusual miracles is activated in your life! In your home miracles will overflow, it will become a daily experience, for you everywhere you find yourself. You speak one minute and you experience results the next minute. Your words are backed by power and authority and manifested in miracles, and so shall it be in Jesus name. Amen
TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord Release over my life a greater supply of your Spirit for signs, wonders and miracles.
TODAY’S THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Miracles, signs, and wonders are spiritual by-products of the anointing. This is why when the Apostles prayed for signs and wonders to be done by the Holy name of His son Jesus, God responded by pouring out more of the anointing.
