Last night at “Faith Conference,” Willie George taught on God performing miracles.
“God does the supernatural and we do the natural. Adam planted the seeds and God caused them to grow. God created the animals and Adam named them.”
He taught from the story of Elijah and the widow in 2 Kings 4:1-7. Elijah told her to borrow containers from her neighbors and then go into her house and shut the door. Why? She was about to operate in faith and what God was going to do would draw attention.
When Jesus performed a miracle, He did not draw attention to it. Over and over He said to those He healed, “Don’t tell anyone.” See Matthew 8:4; Mark 7:36; and Luke 5:14-16.
God does the supernatural where it cannot be seen:
- He multiplied the oil in the jar. The widow just kept pouring.
- Jesus broke the bread and fish in the baskets and fed 5000.
- God turned the water into wine while the servants were carrying it to the host of the wedding.
Today we read what happens when a miracle happens in public.
Acts 14:9, 10, “He heard Paul speaking, who looked intently at him and perceived that he had faith to be healed and said with a loud voice, ‘Stand upright on your feet.’ And he jumped up and walked.” Modern English Version
- The people gave the glory to Paul and Barnabas, Acts 14:11.
- They wanted to sacrifice offerings to them, Acts 14:13.
- Then some Jews turned the crowd and they stoned Paul, Acts 14:19!
This month, we paid off my hospital bill from a surgery I had in March 2016. God did not put a check in the mail for almost $5,000. Instead, we adjusted our budget and made payments.
God blessed us and multiplied things for us. We found we didn’t need to buy as much food, our electric bill went down, etc. When we received an income tax return, we paid a large amount on the bill. By doing our part, we paid the bill off two months early.
