Wonder-Working Power

David CerulloBy David CerulloApril 6, 20227 Minutes

Do you know that the same wonder-working power Jesus demonstrated lives within you? You have the power to become an overcomer in EVERY AREA of your life … your health, your family, your finances, and any other challenging area you may be facing today.

From time to time, I hear from many believers who can’t fully embrace the magnitude of this truth. Many even ask, “How could I possibly do the same kind of works that Jesus did?”

The answer is simple: You can do the impossible BECAUSE of “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).

Let me explain it this way …

Fifty days after Jesus’ resurrection, something amazing happened. The disciples who walked with Jesus for more than three years had already seen tremendous miracles along the way, but after His resurrection, Jesus told them they were about to experience something greater than anything they had yet seen.

They must have at first wondered what it was that would happen. They didn’t have long to wait before the breakthrough came:

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:1-4).

This was such a dramatic turning point in the disciples’ lives that it’s often called “the birthday of the church.” The church was born in power … power that transformed the disciples and enabled them to transform the world.

Friend, this same supernatural power is available to you today because of your faith in God. You don’t have to live in defeat and frustration because God offers to give you a very special gift …

Wonder-Working Power Through His Word and His Spirit! 

Just as Jesus Himself was empowered by the Spirit and “went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil” (Acts 10:38), you and I are also called to live a supernatural life.

Jesus told His disciples, “As the Father has sent Me, I also send you” (John 20:21), and “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).

You may still find this concept hard to imagine. But, believe me, you can experience His miracle touch today because of who He is and “the boundless greatness of His power toward [those] who believe” (Ephesians 1:18-19 NASB).

The same wonder-working power displayed in the life of Jesus now lives in YOU! You can do the impossible through Christ’s authority in your life.

A Limitless Check

Perhaps you’ve heard the story about a homeless man begging on a street corner during the Great Depression. A wealthy man walked by and had com- passion on the beggar. He pulled out his wallet and wrote the homeless man a check for $1,000. “Here you are,” he said, “there’s plenty of money in my account at the bank, and this will help you get some food and a place to stay.”

The next day, the wealthy man was walking by the same street corner and was shocked to see the man still begging for handouts from passersby. “Why didn’t you use the money I gave you yesterday to better your circumstances?” he asked incredulously.

“Oh, I knew the bank would never cash such a large check from someone like me,” the homeless man explained. “So I tore up your check and went back to asking people for their spare change.”

Friend, through the promises of His Word and the gift of the Holy Spirit, God has given you a limitless “check,” but it’s your responsibility to appropriate His power and “cash the check.” Don’t be content to live on spiritual crumbs when He calls you to a life of abundance and victory. Believe His Word, and receive His power!

The apostle John reminds us, “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). This means you have power to be an overcomer in every area of your life – your finances, your health, your family, and any other challenge you may be facing today. And you can boldly come against confusion, depression, fear, or any other attack the enemy sends against your peace of mind.

Unlock the Blessings

On the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit empowered the church for a great worldwide outreach to the nations. The believers were enabled to speak in languages they had never learned, a sign from God that He wanted to reach people from “every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9).

This is the same vision we have for Inspiration Ministries – to be part of filling the earth “with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14).

I am so thankful for your partnership in winning souls in more than 200 nations of the world. As we partner together, we see God’s wonder-working power still touching countless lives today.

Because your financial seeds are blessing others with the knowledge of the Gospel, we know that God will pour out His blessings in your life as well.

God bless you!
