I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ. Galatians 3:5 New Living Translation
As we enter the 2nd quarter of this great, glorious and prosperous year, check your Miracle Meter. Better still check your expectancy or hope meter. The word for Bible hope does not mean I hope it will happen or maybe. It means a confident expectation of GOOD all the time regardless of situations or circumstances. I would venture to say that the person operating in Bible hope is always looking for something good to enter and surround and bless their lives. This is what The Father desires, purposed, planned and more importantly PROVIDED for us through His Son JESUS!!!
As a child of God, a fresh and continual supply of the Spirit is available to you ALL THE TIME, EVERY TIME!! And, MIRACLES are right there on the shelf like food at the grocery store for the believer and for non-believers as well. For the non-believer this takes place thru a believer or believing one. Unlike what had been taught for many years this gift of the Holy Spirit DOES NOT come to you because you do everything right and you don’t do this and you do do that. That is Old Testament. We are under the covenant of GRACE Who is non other than our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Himself. He is our righteousness and The Father has given or imputed His righteousness or right standing to us completely by GRACE which is undeserved, unmerited favor simply because you BELIEVE what He has done. You believe His report or message that He died for your sins and took your place. This ministry of the Spirit is manifold or has many attributes.
Take close notice in the scripture above to the word ‘among‘. The word among there is a multifaceted word. It is the Greek word en and it means in, on, at, by and with. Oh I hope you grasp the depth and the power of that word chosen by the Holy Spirit in this scripture. You must know and be conscious that the supply of the Spirit is available to you AT ALL TIMES to give you strength, provision or whatever else you need and that miracles are available not just for you but for others. That scripture declares when you believe, God is then willing and able to:
- Work miracles IN you.
- Work miracles ON you.
- Work miracle AT you or AT a location.
- Work miracles BY or through you.
- Work miracles WITH you.
Oh His Goodness!!! Oh His Goodness. Normally we say Oh my goodness but it’s HIS GOODNESS!!!
But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done IN her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. Mark 5:33 KJV
Indeed he was ill, and almost died. But God had mercy ON him, and not ON him only but also ON me, to spare me sorrow upon sorrow. Phillipians 2:27 NIV
Now there is AT Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving of the waters; 4for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted. John 5:2 KJV
And God wrought special miracles BY the hands of Paul: Acts 19:11 KJV
The disciples spread [the Good News] everywhere. The Lord worked WITH them. He confirmed His Word by the miraculous signs that accompanied it. Mark 16:20 God’s Word Translation
As you step into this New Year I encourage you to HAVE(hold, keep, possess) a constant and consistent expectancy for God the Father thru JESUS to supply to you the Spirit and to work miracles IN YOU, ON YOU, where ever you are AT, BY YOU, and most importantly WITH YOU!!!!
Have a Miraculously GRACE FILLED Year!!!!
All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!
