RCCG Open Heavens Daily Devotional, Sunday, 5th January, 2014:
TOPIC: SIGNS AND WONDERS II
Memorise: “Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe”. John 4:48
Read: Mark 2:1-2
Bible in one year: Romans 13:7-16:27, Psalm 7
When our Lord walked the earth, the people wanted Him to prove that He was the Messiah through a sign. Beyond His heart penetrating they wanted to see a sign from Him by Which they would believe He came from God. .
“Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe”. John 4:48
Jesus in the above passage made it clear that people would not believe except they see signs and wonders. For several years, my mother-in-law did not’want to hear anything about the Gospel. We tried our best to convert her to no avail. Meanwhile, my wife had gone through three caesarean sections before we got born—again. When we gave our lives to Christ, we read Luke 1 :37 which says,
”For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
My wife got pregnant again and had a big baby without a caesarean section. When my mother-in-law saw this, she said ”because of what the. Lord has done, I surrender to the gospel.” l decree concerning you that, because of the signs an wonders the Lord shall perform in your life, all the members of your family shall e converted to the gospel in Jesus‘ Name.
In Mark 2:1-12, we have the story of a bedridden man healed at the command of Jesus. Witnesses of this miracle wondered at the marvellous display of God's power. After I had my child which the doctors said could only be delivered through a caesarean section on a Friday night. The next day being a Saturday, I had a preaching engagement with doctors at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) in Nigeria. I was so full of joy over the wonder of the Friday night that I could not sleep. At that meeting, I shared my testimony that my wife, who in the past had undergone three caesarean sections, and who the doctors had said couldn't deliver any more children, was delivered of a big baby naturally by the intervention of God. All of them opened their mouths for about two minutes. The miracle that would make people open their mouths shall happen to you this season in Jesus‘ Name. When they finally recovered from the shock of my testimony, a scientist amongst them said: ”nothing is proved and acceptable in science except it can be repeated to get the same result.” Four years later, my wife gave birth to another baby boy, much bigger than the previous one. I decree in the Name that is above every other ‘lame, that God will do something new in your life as you read this devotional today, in Jesus‘ Name.
Exercise your faith in God through Jesus Christ on a particular situation that seems impossible.. believing that God will do it and He will perform it
