Daily Read – Numbers 16:41-18:32; Mark 16:1-20; Psalm 55:1-23; Proverbs 11:7
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved;
but he who does not believe will be condemned.
And these signs will follow those who believe:
In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them;
they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
So then, after the Lord had spoken to them,
He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
And they went out and preached everywhere,
the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
These are the last words spoken to My disciples before My ascension. They set the course in the establishment of My church worldwide. Disciples dispersed throughout every nation, tongue and tribe. Multitudes touched by the miracle power of Holy Spirit through all who believe.
So many don’t understand the spiritual power they carry. It’s explosive and powerful awaiting to be released by and through My people. Instead of releasing this power surge to the nations, too many sit complacent within their church with no clue they’re quenching My Spirit.
It's time for My body to repent for bowing to spirits of lethargy and intimidation. It's time to arise and release My fullness to those who cry out in desperation. This world needs what you have. This world needs to see the demonstration of My love and power moving through You!
When I ascended, My disciples quickly obeyed and went preaching everywhere. I don’t make empty promises, I keep My Word! My disciples encountered signs, wonders and miracles when they preached My Word. Step out of your comfort zone and you will walk in the same glory.
There is nothing more to be done, I gave it all. The world waits for you to walk by faith and manifest My goodness. With each step, I will heal the sick, heal the lame, heal the blind, and set the tormented free. This world will change because of your obedience to allow My power to flow through your life.
Lord Jesus, as a believer, I walk from my home today with a new determination to see Your Kingdom come. Your Kingdom is within me and I choose to let it splash out on everyone who crosses my path. I break off all spirits of lethargy, complacency, and even intimidation. I refuse to allow anything to stop me from moving in the miracle working power that resides within my spirit. When I share the good news of the gospel with others, I expect to see miracles confirming Your Word. Life is about to get very exciting! Amen!
