Lately, God has really been impressing on my spirit to evaluate what kind of signs are following my life? A sign is something pointing to or indicative of something larger or more important; often linked with “wonders” and “miracles”. Are there things going on in my life that are pointing people to something larger and more important – our Lord Jesus Christ? Jesus said himself in Mark 16:17, “These signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick and heal them.” Jesus didn’t say that these signs would follow only pastors, evangelists, and teachers. No, he said these signs will accompany those who believe.
It always goes back to our belief. Do we really believe that Jesus can do the miraculous? Do we really trust that He can do what He says and has promised? We must have expectation for signs, miracles, and wonders to follow our lives. These things are never to exalt ourselves but to always point people to Jesus. We desire those things for the sake of the cross, in order that all may come to know our Lord and Savior.
I know that I am praying for signs, wonders, and miracles to follow my life. Will you join me in this…believing in the miraculous and expecting miracles? Marla Sharp
