Do you want more of God’s power? Are you captivated by the power of the Holy Spirit in healing the sick and raising the dead? Can you believe in the story of Moses parting the Red Sea with only his wooden staff and not any marvel engineering works? Even if the Israelites crossed the Red Sea at that time in 3 feet of sea water, are you more amazed on how the whole pursuing Egyptian army with swords, chariots, archers and phalanx got destroyed in under 3 feet of water within a day? How on earth can all these miracles and wonders happened in the past with very little civilization advancements? It must be God’s hand at work, because the people back then were in dire and desperation for God’s help.
What drives us to seek God’s miracles and wonders in the modern present day? Do we still need the hands of God? or man can try to create the signs and wonders of God? In today’s world with so much knowledge and technology is God still relevant and important? why not just trust in God and holding faith in the power of God to bring our generation to greater heights and be the testament to God’s signs and wonders? If only we are willing to consecrate our lives for God, we shall obtain God’s power.
Every power encounter begins with desperation, an extreme desire for God in our lives, intense desire for the blessings and power of God as depicted in Psalm: 63. 1. A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, thou art my God; earnestly will I seek thee: My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee, In a dry and weary land, where no water is. 2. So have I looked upon thee in the sanctuary, To see thy power and thy glory.
The power of God flowing that flows into us, through us and out of us without limits. we are going to find the flooding of God’s blessing, until it overflow onto your loved and cherished ones and surroundings of the Kingdom of God on earth. It is evident in the past and present that many philanthropists have used their flooding and overflowing of blessings to help many of the dying, sick, desperate, destitute, dire poverty, slavery, bondage, marginalized, ill treated, famine, plaque, natural disasters, human catastrophes, devil attrition, demon torture, etc. The overflowing of God’s living water and anointing of the Holy Spirit can be found in Isaiah: 44. 3. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and streams upon the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: 4. and they shall spring up among the grass, as willows by the watercourses.
As told by apostle Mark about a boy with a dumb spirit and had constant ceases and traumas when attacked by the evil spirits as in Mark: 9. 17. And one of the multitude answered him, Teacher, I brought unto thee my son, who hath a dumb spirit; 18. and wheresoever it taketh him, it dasheth him down: and he foameth, and grindeth his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast it out; and they were not able.
A greater demon requires a greater prayer and fasting wanting more of God’s power, in order to cast the demon out. Desperation is the foundation to prayer and fasting in performing intercession and . Desperation is Luke: 11. 21. When the strong [man] fully armed guardeth his own court, his goods are in peace: 22. but when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him his whole armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
Finally Jesus Christ was able to exocise the evil spirit by commanding it as seen in Mark: 9. 19. And he answereth them and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him unto me. 20. And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him grievously; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. There is always a demonic power that control a particular region. For example the city of Philippi did not set free and open up to the Gospel until the demon name Legion were casted off from a soldier. This resulted in the founding of the Philippians Church in the city later.
Prayer and fasting is the key to greater power of God, the power of God’s Kingdom. Fasting greatly focuses our prayer and increases our desperation for the power of God and accelerates our encounter with God’s miracles as described by Jesus diciple in Mark: 2. 18. And John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting: and they come and say unto him, Why do John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
If we desire God to reveal His miracles and great power, we have to fast and pray to deprive of our flesh and physical and operate in God’s realm. As taught by prophet Isaiah: 58. 6. Is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? When we focus on the desperation of our fasting, God will respond to our prayer and fasting; God will deliver us from evil to good and from darkness to light as told by apostle Matthew: 6. 10. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth. Matthew: 6. 13. And bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil [one.] . And God will reveal His signs and wonders and miracles via the Holy Spirit as charged in the book of Ephesians: 1. 17. that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him; Ultimately the revelation of God’s miracles and wonders lies with the will of God alone I.e. the parting of the Red Sea is by God’s will and Moses or Aaron allowing God’s willing to happen.
