January 19th: God’s power and the greatest miracle
I went out into the town centre and happened to bump into a young man who I had prayed for with two others that were on the School of the Supernatural in our church some weeks ago. When we prayed for him he had experienced the power of God on him, and had walked away amazed as this was clearly outside the realms of his experience. I suspect he has had a troubled past. Today he was walking with a stick. I asked him what was wrong and he told me he had an infection with pain in his left leg and back. I prayed for him and he experienced some warmth on his back, and the pain significantly decreased. He also felt that his leg had improved after I prayed for him again. He gave his life to Jesus Christ, expressing an interest in coming to our church. Jesus revealed Himself to that young man and the conviction of the Holy Spirit led him to pray to receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Salvation is the greatest miracle. It is only God that brings results. This was a divine appointment as I only had limited time in town and The Lord put me and this young man in the right place at the right time. When we see God use us to set the captives free we must be careful to remember that our only boast should be in the cross of Jesus Christ (Galatians 6:14). It is all His work, and yet we have the privilege to partner with Him, and get a ringside seat to see the awesome things He does! God is in full control, and what He ordains and decrees cannot be changed. Jesus knows our past, but continually wants to reveal His love for us, and draw us away from darkness into His glorious light and life.
