THE WORD WORKS WONDERS V
The supernatural is natural in heaven. Wonders are a common phenomenon there. The Word works wonders on the earth when believers engage scripturally.
Believers must think the Word, say the Word, and act or do the Word to experience the wonders in the Word. Acting the Word simply means obeying whatsoever the Word demands. It means complying, keeping, or agreeing with the Word. The beginning of the miracles of Jesus happened as a result of simple obedience to seemingly foolish instructions from the Word. The Bible says:
“And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee and manifested forth his glory, and his disciples believed on him.” – John 2:1-11
Why would the living Word instruct the disciples to fill the waterpots with water when wine got finished at that wedding? It was the wine they needed not dirty water. What value would that add to the situation that was already getting bad as a result of the finished wine? As if that was not enough asking the disciples to draw from the waterpots (not wine pots) and give it to the governor of the feast (the chief guest of honor) was one of the foolish instructions of all ages. But God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. I Corinthians 1:27. The wonder of the better wine as we saw in the text came as a result of simple obedience to seemingly foolish instructions of the Word.
Dr. David Oyedepo says, if the Word (of God) cannot fool you the Word (of God) cannot feed you. If one is too wise to act on the Word, one will never see the wonders in the Word. It is acting on the Word that completes the process of faith which is necessary to take delivery of the wonders in the Word. In order to see the wonders in the Word; we must maintain thought alignment, word alignment (our word aligning with the Word of God), and action alignment (that is our corresponding action). James 2:17, 26
Therefore, think the Word, say the Word, do the Word, and harvest the wonders! This is the complete scriptural process of working miracles.
