{ Day 346 }

by | Dec 12, 2011 | Devotionals, Prayer

This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. —Hebrews 2:3-4

The demonstration of the supernatural power of God in and through the church is a dimension of the prophetic ministry. As in the days of Elijah, miracles attest to the truth of God’s Word. The written Word includes the witness of the apostles, and if attesting miracles were needed when they personally testified within a few years of the Resurrection, how much more are attesting miracles needed today to confirm the veracity of their written accounts? Attesting miracles are also valuable as a dimension of the prophetic community because, more than anything else, they make people aware that God is actually present with them. The working of miracles jolts our sensibilities and makes us joyfully (or frightfully) aware of the fact that He is in our midst by the presence of the Holy Spirit and that He is very close to each of us. Through the miraculous, the church prophesies and proclaims that He is alive!

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Lord, I long to see miracles and signs and wonders of Your mighty power. Come to Your people in Your power, and give us mighty miracles that reveal Your presence in our midst.

In the miraculous, the living God of the written
Word shows up in a powerfully personal,
intimate, and tangible way.
