Supernatural Expansion…. How to See Signs And Wonders Through Your Prayers
I was recently listening to Louie Giglio preach a series called POWER-FULL. The series takes you through the book of Acts and how God equips ordinary people and sends them out supernaturally to introduce people to Christ and his power.
Right now I am on the 6th in the series and listening to Ben Stuart teach on Impact through ordinary citizens. He shares his personal experience with being an introvert and yet being hungry to see people reached for Christ. (Hilarious by the way) In this particular segment, he talks about how God loves using “non-professionals”.
So as I am listening to this series, walking my dogs around the neighborhood, I began to pray, give me some opportunities this week like you did for Ben! I want MORE of your power. MORE of your fire on my life. Renew me Lord!
I try to keep my heart on fire for God like I was in my twenties. I used to have people constantly say to me when I was homeschooling, leading neighborhood bible studies and then in sales…
I want to learn to pray like you do! I want to know God like this, personal and powerful!
So how does this happen? What I love about what Ben said, and that I have experienced my whole walk with Christ is God loves to answer the prayer of ordinary people to be used supernaturally.
Ten years ago, when I shared my almost 1 million dollar ID theft with the Vice-President of Marketing for a major identity company, he told me my story was the kind that he wanted to get on a major network TV show. He shared he had been trying for months to get a hold of this particular TV producer and they just wouldn’t call him back. I said, “Well I don’t know if you believe in prayer but I do so let’s pray for favor for you right now”.
Now, one of the things I tell people all the time is you don’t sit around waiting for five awkward minutes for people to give you permission. You politely wait 2 seconds and then you begin to pray in the name of Jesus. Well, within seconds I knew the Lord was all over this (and you will too) I prayed for his job, his family and for God to open supernatural doors no man could open. So, you can imagine this man’s surprise when the TV executive he was trying to reach multiple times, that hadn’t taken his calls for three months, called him 5 minutes after we hung up the phone.
What a coincidence!
He was so excited that God would care enough to answer his work problem that he called me right back and asked me if I could fly to New York and be on the TV show with my story. And that opportunity opened up other doors to pray with more people and to grow more successfully in my business.
So, who do you have the chance to pray with?
Let’s say you’re a stay at home mom, and you run into a neighbor who shares with you, her son is struggling in school. Stop right then and ask her if you can pray, Remember, Be BOLD. This perfect opportunity is not about YOU; it’s about displaying God’s power!
What if God doesn’t show up? Well, what happens if HE DOES? Your prayer could change someone’s life and show them God cares about the details in their life! Maybe you’re an executive, and a client is stressed about how they are going to solve their financial problem. PRAY FOR THEM! This, my friends, is how to have FUN and see the supernatural!
Would you like to become a mighty vessel of God and coach others into more success? Then get ready to pray vigorous and bold!
