For Signs And Wonders

 

Bind up
the testimony

seal My word
within your heart

wait on Me
and see My wonders

how My hope
will not depart.

Jesus establishes signs and wonders.

“Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples and I will wait on the LORD; who hides His face from the house of Jacob ; and I will hope in Him. Here I am and the children whom the LORD has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts who dwells in Mount Zion. ” Isaiah 8:16,17,18 NKJV

Staying Longer

“But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren.” Acts 14:2
“Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” Acts 14:3

There was opposition here. People’s minds had been poisoned against them. I, myself, would want to leave, but they stayed a long time.

Lord, help me not to flee immediately in the face of opposition, but to stay bold in You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Bold In The Lord

Preaching the gospel
of our Lord Jesus Christ

no city they went to
had to ask twice

speaking boldly and bearing witness
to the word of His grace

granted signs and wonders
to be done in that place.

Out of Oppression

“He brought them out, after he had shown wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red Sea, and in the wilderness forty years.” Acts 7:36

Could times of oppression bring forth even more of His signs and wonders?

Lord, in the midst of our own situations, help us hold on to the miracle of You and Your deliverance. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Ripe For Wonders

Oppression comes from outside us
and pushes us to the ground

it laughs in the face of Jesus
and kicks us while we’re down

but it’s out of these places
that signs and wonders are seen

as His people cry out for deliverance
to the glory of their King.

Full of Faith

“And Stephen full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.” Acts 6:8

Stephen was one of seven chosen from the multitude of disciples to serve and over see at the distribution tables.

Lord, let us not underestimate Your power within us, regardless of our position within the congregation or place in life. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Like Stephen

Full of faith and power
in Jesus who was raised

doing signs and wonders
giving Christ all the praise

one among the multitude
gathered in His name

what keeps us from believing
that we can do the same?

We are house sitting again for the next couple of weeks, and I will try to keep up if I can! If I can’t, thank you for your patience until we get done! God bless you!
