THE WORD WORKS WONDERS I
The word of God is the authentic, genuine and only source of signs, wonders and diverse miracles. Many people (believers and unbelievers) run after signs and wonders but the word of God is the only platform to see the manifestation of miracles. God sent Moses to bring the Israelites out of the land of bondage; what a daunting task? God knew (being the all-knowing God) that it would only take miracles to get those guys out of the hands of the forces of Egypt. He told Moses:
“And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs” – Exodus 4:17
The “rod” represents the word of God in figure. Isaiah 11:1; John 1:1. What God told Moses is what He is telling all believers of today. Believers are faced with intimidating and scary task of daily confronting and subduing satanic oppositions to fulfil destiny; but believers must take “…this rod…” in their hands to do signs and wonders necessary to accomplish the divine agenda of fulfilling destiny.
Remember, every believer is called, justified and glorified. Romans 8:29-30. Therefore, as believers, you are not to run after signs; you are not to look for signs, you are not even to beg for signs, you are ordained to do signs. However, a wise man said; responsibility is the price for greatness. Every believer must accept responsibility to take the “rod” in his/her hand to do signs.
Stop running around looking for finished food; what you think is finished food may be poison in disguise. God ordained you to accept responsibility gather the ingredients and engage yourself to cook according to your heart desire, then, settle down to enjoy your food. God told Abraham:
“ And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” – Genesis 13:14-15
Dr. David Oyedepo said northward is Genesis (the first book of the Bible); the southward is Malachi (the last book of the Old Testament), eastward is Matthew (where the Son of righteousness arose) and westward is Revelation (the last book of the Bible). Therefore, believers can do any sign so desired gleaning from Genesis to Malachi and Matthew to Revelation.
Please note that until a believer takes the word in his/her hand no sign can be done. The reason many believers are running after rumors or stories of signs is because they want someone else to help them “take” the rod. Dr. David Oyedepo said “Anyone that would not accept responsibility would die a liability”. A believer does not have to die as a liability when he/she is ordained as an asset to both God and mankind.
If you think that the word has not worked; it is you that has not worked. The word works wonders any day, every day, and everywhere!
