God:worker of all miracles; the healer, the life-giver; purifier.
Psalm 51: 10, 11(KJV) “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me”.
I was having a deep and serious conversation with myself as I tried to understand what is preventing me, people, Christians, believers (all of us who are calling on the name of Jesus to summarize the list) from doing the signs and wonders at a magnitude, because that is the promise from Christ.
What is preventing me from lay hands on someone and having the sickness go in a heartbeat; what is causing me to look into someone’s eyes and not see all the lies and deception which are burnt into their hearts; what is the barrier to walking unto an accident scene and seeing a young person lying there having just lost their lives and not being able to speak life into their lifeless bodies? What is the barrier?
All the works I mentioned above are accomplished through the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God. And as the psalmist mentions above, if the spirit of man, if my spirit as a believer, one called to live an exemplary life in God isn’t right the possibility exist that I will be cast away from the presence of God. I just might find myself operating without the unction of the Holy Spirit; trying to accomplish things presented as gifts and unable to see the manifestation.
We see how desperately the psalmist cried for that renewed and right spirit within him; to have the dirty and wicked heart cleanse and purified and made right.
What is the desire you have toward God; what do you passionately have burning within you to do, yet that faulty flesh keeps popping up its head and prevents you from moving forward into your destiny? What is it?
Today might just be the day you get the unction to function as you earnestly request a renewed heart and mind and soul from Him that can grant it.
Trivia: Although he had a great and major destiny to fulfill, the Lord would have killed him because he didn’t follow a covenant agreement, who is this?
