Today we look upon the Lord and wonder how he performed so many miracles in his time on earth. We know his word in our hearts. We know that he teaches us to have faith in order to do as he did and even more. However it is one thing to say we have faith but performing a miracle requires just more than words it requires the spirit to gain authority of the faith that we possess. Below is a step by step process in giving the spirit this authority.
Building the spirit
To build a spirit of strength from within requires tribulation. There is no other way to know how strong we are. We have to make the dreaded journey into the wilderness to gain strength and understanding of who we are. This is building the spirit of authority. Our many battles fought in this arena would give us the spiritual stamina to withstand the impossible. It would also position our minds and spirits to believe that no matter what circumstance we face we have already seen worse. This is spiritual strength.
Building the knowledge of the spirit
In order to do this we must learn scripture. The word of God is the book of knowledge for understanding the magic of the spiritual world. It is in God’s word that we shall learn the words to perform the miracles that we desire. It is the spiritual manual for all types of miracles that can be performed on this earth. Reading scripture endlessly without fail enlightens us to God’s word and in turn gives us knowledge and command of the spirit.
Believing that God resides within us
If we have built the spirit and the word of God in us then we must also allow God to reside in us. In order to do this we must abide by his word wholly. This means in everything we do or say we must believe that it is the hand of God that conducts our actions. This is not just something we confess verbally but it must be something that comes from our core. We must feel it through our veins and in everything our senses come in contact with. This is how we become one with God.
Learning Spiritual authority
This comes when we know that God is within us and we have the faith that we can conquer all things. This is David versus Goliath. If we believe that we have the Lord in us then we must also believe that he can make the impossible possible. Our world is lower than God’s. Our physical sense of existence is weaker than God’s spirit in us. If we believe this then we must also believe that it can make the physical to work in the desire of the spiritual.
The outcome of whether a miraculous wish succeeds or not is determined by God. This is determined by our position of authority through faith or works of faith. God knows our hearts and its intentions. He knows who would abuse this authority and who is doing it for vanity. If we fall under all the wrong categories before him then it would be impossible to perform any miracles.
The thing to remember here is that the spiritual world is not like a logical lesson. The success of the steps above is not determined by our effort or commitment or knowledge of them. They are determined by what God desires of us.
