Do you think prayer is more or less powerful today?

God seems to call EXTRA-ORDINARY MEN
Adam
Abraham
Moses
Joseph
David
Matthew
Mark
Luke
John
Jesus gives them “power and authority” to drive out all demons.
Do we think this is absent the will of God? Could they heal people God didn’t want healed? Did God sit this one out and say “go do your thing”? Or were they doing His will all along?
Our power to drive out all demons is the same as it is today. The strength of the name of God is still just as strong. The strength doesn not reflect the person weilding it. God doesn’t require a certain level of holiness to answer prayers. Phew!
Power to cure diseases, according to God’s will? How are they healed? By His grace and the strength and power in His name. Is God weaker today? Of COURSE NOT!
We believe we can pray for healing. NAZBO
He sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
He sent them to proclaim God AND meet the needs around them.
They took nothing, this forced a discipline and obedience that was centered on Godly provision. Do we move with Godly Provision on our hearts and lips?
SO WHAT
We have Power and Authority! We ARE sent out. We need to stop looking for and waiting for the extraordinary people we think God will send because we know what He uses, and start being the EXTRA- ORDINARY people we KNOW him to use.
STOP EXPECTING EXTRAORDINARY AND BE EXTRA-ORDINARY
PROCLAIM and HEAL
