Brave New World Day 6

Read Acts 19:11-12  And God was doing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his skin were carried away to the sick, and their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them.

     We live in a world that is rational and believes in what it can see and not much else. Yet there seems to be a longing in each of us to believe that there is a power beyond what we can see and experience in the temporal world. Our literature and movies all display this. But many would rather believe in super-powered mutants than give God any credit because at least, in some way, at least mutation is an explanation. But God is real, and the wonders and signs He performed through Jesus, Peter, Paul and others are real. 
     The Holy Spirit lives within each follower of Christ. The gifts that God has given us are powered by that Spirit. What we see in Paul form the passage above is the literal manifestation of the spiritual gifts. Remember also, that Paul was just a human being, like you and me. Yet, even his handkerchief was able to heal because of the present of the Holy Spirit in Paul’s life. As you continue in your walk with Jesus, ask Him to teach you how to use the gifts you have. Practice them at home and wherever you can find time. Believe that God will do the unexplainable through you and listen for His voice leading you to act.

How can a small act of faith lead to something big?
Why is the supernatural so hard to believe, even though we all seem to want to believe?
Look for unexplainable things in your everyday life and praise God when you see them.
