And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people. (Acts 6:8 NKJV)
Every one of us needs miracles and wonders. The two things that precede miracles and wonders are faith and power. POWER means “miracle-working power” or “the fullness of the Holy Spirit.”
To be filled with faith, we must be full of God’s Word and full of the Holy Spirit. We must pray, live, and walk in the Spirit in order to see wonders and miracles.
Sometimes our faith may seem weak or just neutral. At one service I felt led to pray for people who had foot problems. Afterward, a woman came up to me and said, “Please come look at my daughter.” The woman’s daughter was walking up the steps to the platform with great joy.
I said to the woman, “What happened?” She said, “Several years ago my daughter crushed the bones of her feet, and she could hardly walk. But now she’s walking normally.” When we go after God’s Word, miracles will come after us.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We pray today that we will be so committed to the Word and to the power of the Holy Spirit that signs and wonders will truly follow us. We give all the glory and praise to Jesus.
