Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Truly the signs of an apostle were accomplished among you with all perseverance, in signs and wonders and mighty deeds. – 2 Cor 12:12

Paul didn’t just talk the talk; he walked the walk. He didn’t just talk about signs, wonders, and mighty deeds; God did miraculous things through him as he ministered! The mark of an apostle is not a title or training; it is miracles! Can you do the “stuff?” When you pray, does heaven come down?

If not, don’t panic. Intimacy leads to power. Time spent in God’s presence will facilitate the miraculous in your life! The more time you spend in His presence, the more power you will see when you pray. In His presence is fullness of joy (Ps 16:11). In His presence is purpose. In His presence is Resurrection life!

Prayer:

Father, I want to be a lover of Your presence. I don’t want to settle for knowing what’s possible; I want to see the impossible! Help me to witness the miraculous in my midst, in Jesus’ name!
