Some Christians believe God’s supernatural power is few and far between. They seem to think God has a limited supply of power to spend on His people. I don’t think studying His power will increase its administration. The more you know and understand God, the easier it becomes for Him to manifest. I don’t fully understand the electronic ignition in my car, I just know it is there whenever I need it.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, not anything you can do.
We are saved by grace. When you accept Jesus grace comes in, washes away all your sins and changes your very nature. Therefore, grace is the supernatural power of God and it always follows faith. As long as you have faith you will always have access to the power of God. So, in essence we have everything to do with the times of God’s power manifesting. God’s grace is His response to our faith, how often do you use your faith? Grace is not a tub of white goodness which some have taught, the Holy Ghost is the Spirit of grace. The supernatural power of God is ministered by the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 3:5 He that ministers the Holy Spirit to you and worketh miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the flesh or by the hearing of faith?
Brothers and sisters, our life in Christ began as a miracle on account of the Holy Spirit. Does each believer get only one miracle? Do we begin a supernatural life and then rely on our flesh? Jesus said He would be with us always, even unto the end of the world. If Jesus is with each one of us forever, isn’t that a supernatural relationship? On several occasions as a young boy my dad threatened to beat the Jesus out of me. That use to really scare me but now I know that no one can beat the Jesus out of me. He came when I invited Him and I will never evict Him.
Acts 1:8 You shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.
Why should we limit ourselves to our natural ability when we have the Holy Spirit abiding in us? God did not give us this power just so we could have something to testify about! I am amazed at how many Christians have the Holy Ghost but live a life of defeat. Anyone who has the Holy Spirit has a living hope of Him doing something we cannot do. The scribes and pharisees did not appreciate Jesus demonstrating the power of the Spirit. Their ancestors are among us today, they don’t appreciate the Holy Spirit nor those who welcome Him.
2 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying power thereof, from such turn away.
Paul exhorts brother Timothy to avoid those who do not accept the ministry of the Holy Ghost. Give yourself to those who are willing to believe. The Gospel of Christ is not for everyone but for whosoever will. The supernatural power of God is real, it is our portion, our gift. God has made us worthy of this supernatural gift by His supernatural power, brethren do not neglect such a beautiful gift.
I have sown much seed,
and I will reap a harvest.
The devil cannot steal my seed, because God never forgets a seed sown.
He rebukes the seedeater for my sake, God has overcome the world.
The devil cannot discourage me because due season is coming.
