In science, there is something called potential energy or sleeping energy or energy at rest. There is another one called kinetic energy, that is, energy at work.
For example, you may think that a block resting on the roof top, has no power, but if it falls off and lands on your head, you will discover that it has power, only that it was resting. The bullet in a gun has its own energy but it is sleeping quietly in the gun. But the moment it is fired, the energy is no longer sleeping, but is in action.
And when it is in action, it has what is called kinetic energy. If a lorry is parked and is completely motionless it has plenty of energy within. A child can stand in front of it and play but the moment it begins to move slightly, any one standing in front of it may get himself killed.
The same thing is true of you brother; it is also true of you sister. There is a lot of power deposited in you that could perform miracles, the moment you are baptized in the Holy Spirit. But you are allowing this power to sleep. You need to activate it so that miracles can begin to happen.
If you don’t go to the hospital to pray for the sick, how will you discover that there is power within you that can bring healing to people? If you don’t go to a village to conduct a crusade, how will you discover that the ability to cast out demons has been deposited in you? If the disciples in your own area don’t gather to have a disciples’ weekend and rally, how will you discover many miracles that will happen, that will lead to the salvation of souls.
Mark 16:16-20 says, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents;. and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord has spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following”.
The signs will only follow those who are already moving. It doesn’t say these signs shall follow those who stay. It will follow those who go. In Luke 10:17, the Bible says, “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name”.
The seventy returned with joy, they returned with testimonies because the Lord sent them and they went. Those who did not go had no testimony.
Luke 5:1-7 says, “And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they in closed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink”.
Jesus after using Peter’s boat, told him to launch into the deep. God is calling unto you today, don’t stay at one spot, move forward and then cast your net. Do something, stop giving excuses. Hold a meeting, even in your own sitting room. You can have crusade in your own garden. You can hold prayer meeting in your own room, miracles will hap-pen. Do something, launch into the deep. Let down your net, it is then you can catch fishes.
Matthew 12:9-13: “And when he was departed thence, he went to their synagogue: And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered, and they asked him, saying, is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath days? that they might accuse him. And he said unto them, what man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath days. Then saith he to the man, stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; it was restored whole, like as the other”.
The Bible talks about a man with a withered hand. Jesus told him, stretch forth your hand. Suddenly the miracle followed:
In John 5:5-9: Jesus Christ said to the man who had been lying down there for 38 years, rise up, take your bed, go. Make a move, stand up, don’t sit down, stand up, not only physically but spiritually. Potential energy can only become kinetic energy if it moves.
It was while the man was trying to stand up that the miracle started. You pray for some people that are sick and they are still lying down on the bed. What are you doing on the bed? Take a step of faith, stand up and the miracle will begin. That is the way to activate miracles.
In Luke 8:43-48, the woman with the issue of blood said in her heart, I think I will go, If only I can touch the helm of His garment, I will be healed. If she said that and did not do anything about it, if she sat down at home and kept on saying: “I think I should go, it will be a good idea if I can go, I think if I touch the helm of His garment, I will be healed”, and did not do anything about it, she would have missed her miracle. But after thinking about it, the potential energy in her became kinetic energy because she got up.
When she got up, there was multitude there, she kept on pushing her way, until she finally touched Jesus Christ. She activated her miracle.
Pray about everything you have heard. Pray in tongues, Let the rivers of living water begin to flow out from within you. Make a decision that when you get home, you will start something. You will activate miracles. And you will have outstanding miracles to the glory of God.
