The Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 4.19-20, “I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills – and I will know, not the speech of those who are puffed up, but the Power! For the Kingdom of God is not in words but in Power!” That’s an amazing statement! Paul is saying, the Kingdom of God is not ‘words’, but ACTION! It’s so easy to speak. It’s not so easy to act. I want you to become people of action, who put their faith into practice.

There is a solution! Whatever situation you are facing today, God will use it for His Glory. In John 9, as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. 'And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" Jesus answered, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.' Doubt is one of the enemy's biggest weapons against the believer: in the Old Testament he said to Eve, "Did God say...?" The devil destroys faith by replacing absolute trust with doubt; this is still the biggest problem in people's lives today. Faith only exists through trust in God and His Word.

When there is a crisis in our lives our only hope is Christ. You - we - have to get an answer from God! When Jesus was on earth, people asked Him direct for what they wanted. We have to do the same, but through prayer. I want to teach you three keys to receiving a miracle: Prayer, Faith & Relationship.

Prayer and faith are inextricably linked: one cannot function without the other. Mark 11 is so revolutionary, so powerful, it has changed my life! In v22, Jesus says, “Have faith in God!” – Faith in God is the key to receiving every miracle. Then He says, “Truly I say to you, whoever you are, look up, see the mountain over there – if you have got faith in God, you will say to that mountain ‘be cast down into the sea’ and if you don’t doubt in your heart but believe that what you say will happen, you shall have whatever you say!” Wow! If you really believe what you say, you will speak – and the mountain will move! Whatever you say, if you speak with faith and authority, and don’t doubt, you will be healed, your family will be blessed, your financial burden will move – even if these things are mountains in your life!

God so often uses the impossible as an evidence of His great Power: like with Moses, God may ask you to do the impossible, He may even harden the hearts of those He’s called you to speak to. What we see as impossible, when we have the call, the commission, the command of God, as we go in His Name, He will demonstrate His Power and do the impossible through us. Let me warn you: if Moses had not responded to the call of God, the people would not have been freed; likewise with us, some people's freedom is dependent on our obedience.

Where is God when we are in the midst of tribulation? - He is right there with us, a very present help in our times of trouble. It is easy to feel God's presence when we are on the mountain top, celebrating His goodness; but the Scripture implies that whilst He is present in our good times, He is very present in our distress. Some years ago I was invited to speak at a conference. The theme was how we can know God, how we can come into His presence. I took as my Scripture Deuteronomy 4:29, 'If from where you are you shall seek the Lord Your God you shall find Him'. You will find God when you are in tribulation, when all the problems of life have come on you. God will use the very circumstances you are in to work a miracle in a demonstration of His Power.

My prayer is that God would open our eyes so that we live in the faith of the coming miracle. We need to get before the Lord and ask Him to open our eyes so that we can see - see beyond the constraints of today, the tribulations of tomorrow. I am living beyond every hindrance. I'm seeing the light of the Kingdom and the Glory of God. O God, open our eyes and give us a glimpse of the Glory of the Heavenly Jerusalem, in Jesus Name, Amen.

We need to have a clear vision of God's plan and purposes. Something tangible. The Bible instructs us to write it down and make it plain to read. All my life I've been working towards a goal; something I see in my spirit. As I look back over my life and ministry, I see what God has done, and because of this, I have an absolute confidence that God is going to continue to lead and direct my steps.

Do we recognise the Power and Authority of Jesus? In Matthew 8 we have an incredible contrast in how people viewed Him. The chapter opens with the story of the Roman Centurion who comes to Jesus on behalf of his servant, and then it closes with Jesus calming the storm. The Centurion says to Jesus, “I recognise the authority You have; if You speak the word, my servant will be healed.” Jesus then commends the man by saying, “I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith!” Whereas later, in the midst of a storm, the disciples who had followed Jesus, seen His miracles said, “What kind of Man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey Him!”
What a challenge to us! Do we recognise the Power and Authority of Jesus? Do we trust Him in the midst of our storms? Are we trusting Him now during this pandemic? Are we going to be bold in our faith, like the Centurion was, and declare, “Jesus, You have the authority”? Or will we shrink back in fear like the disciples?

We have a prayer-answering God, but do we really believe Him? Do you want to see revival? All God needs is one man or woman who can pray like Elijah, who can believe like Jesus said. Do you know what the spirit of Elijah is? To me it is the power that a man can have with God. If you knew the power that you can have, you can call down fire from Heaven, see a nation repent in a day, command the rain to come and it will – that’s the power that God has given you.Lessons from 70 years of ministry: 'For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance.' (Part 10)
