Are We Seeing Signs?

Are We Seeing Signs? As Christians What are we missing? Keys to victorious faithWhether we are called to the Five Fold Ministry or not, we are all ministers of the Word of God! You may not be called to a “pulpit ministry” but your “pulpit” is your circle of influence; your neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family!¬† While sitting in church this past week the Holy Spirit spoke to me and asked me was I willing to be inconvenienced in order to obtain what I was asking God for. What He wanted to know was – was I willing to wake up and intercede for 2 hours in the night if He asked me to (even if that meant I would only get a few hours sleep). Was I willing to turn off my favorite TV show and spend time praying and declaring the Word of God over my situation? Was I willing to say “no, I can’t go to coffee with you today, I have an appointment with God and we have some work to do in the spirit realm.”

All of us have a situation we want changed. All of us are asking God to move on our behalf. If you are like me you are asking for a move of His hand in¬†many situations! What we do not realize is change is not going to happen unless we do something about it. I know this may get under someones “religious” expectation, but I am telling you, God has done all He is going to do on this earth about the devil until Jesus comes back. The rest is up to us! Jesus left us here with the Holy Spirit and His Word to get the job done! He will move, but we need to seek, ask, pray, and stand first! When we are not seeing God move, then we must ask ourselves what are we doing about the situation. Are we spending time searching out the Word to see what God has said about it? I can promise you there is nothing you are facing that the Word of God does not have the answer to. However, most of the time we don’t want to study to show ourselves approved and find out what God says to in order to get the answer. We want someone to read the Word and tell us what God says. Yes, God does give us mercy and grace and He moves on our behalf because He loves us, but there comes a time when He is going to expect us to get off the milk of the Word into the meat. We are going to have to sink our teeth into His Word and study to find out what He says about our situation. We are going to have to do some real intercession. Not our “grocery list prayers” (I like to call them,) but getting a scripture over our situation and stand on it no matter what it looks like in the natural! Taking the time to really intercede and press through. We don’t like pressing through like they did in the time of the Azusa Street Revival. We want everything now with a Jesus help me prayer; when in fact He has already helped us! It is our responsibility to take the Word and get what we need and take back what the devil has stolen from us!

The Word tells us God works with and confirms His Word with signs following. But have we really been seeing signs following the teaching of His Word. If so then rejoice, but if not then we are missing it somewhere – God is not missing it, He is not a liar; we are missing it by not spending the time interceding and refusing to be moved off His promises to us!

We must realize we need absolute dependence on the Holy Spirit. We must begin to be moved by what God is moved by in order to experience the Word with signs following. Jesus gave specific instructions just before He left this earth. Our responsibility is to ask ourselves are we obeying what we have been instructed to do: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Our prayer should be “Father bring us to the place where we can see more clearly as we look ahead and what YOU want us to do.” We must trust God, We must get under the burden and pray, pray, pray until we see the breakthrough!
