Acts 5: 12 “At the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders (attesting miracles) were continually taking place among the people.”
When God blesses you or allows you to do miracles in the Name of His son, it is for a reason ; It shows that He is God and that He’s in our midst. It also affirms that the person who is being used is from God.
Acts 2: 22 “Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:”
Luke 11: 20 “But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.”
These gifts both physical and spiritual are there to attest that there is a God out there who is in fact the God Almighty. So it will make men worship Him, not you.
However people are now so concerned about the gift even more than they are of the Giver.
Whom do you seek ? Really. The gift or the Giver. If for some reason there was no gift (material blessings), would you still be for the Giver (God)?
When He said “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”- (Matt 6:33). He meant life, family, health; literally every good thing. But the requirement is to seek FIRST His Kingdom (His nature and His Character). To be like Him.
God does not lie. You know why?
Lets do a little equation to find out. 1) When you seek first His kingdom, become more like Him= His presence will go with you; be in you and with you.
2) God’s Presence= Himself
3) When God is with you and in you things will naturally flow to (God in you) you.
God told me once ” The gift and the worker are different. Seek the Worker and you will receive the gift.”
Seek God’s heart and not His hand and He’ll soon give you both.
Prayer: Lord help me to put you above all else. Thank you for loving me. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
