These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues;
they will pick up snakes in their hands and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.’Mark 16:17-18
The LORD Jesus gave these promises to His apostles, before He ascended into Heaven.
I am deeply impressed by these promises, because Jesus says that these are the signs that will accompany those who believe.
So why are we doubtful of these promises in our time?
What is it that is limiting the manifestation of these promises in our own lives?
If Jesus promised these signs will accompany those who believe, and I believe, how come I am deeply lacking in these gifts?
Is it due to my unbelief?
Do I truly believe every word and promise that Jesus has spoken?
Am I willing to open my heart unreservedly to receive His graces and powers?
If the answer to all this is yes, then I simply have to ask Him to give me His gifts and manifest His promises in my life.
I am desperately in need of them.
The world is desperately in need of the promises of Jesus to be manifested.
The LORD Jesus is looking for disciples who would open their hearts to receive His words and manifest His promises.
Today, let us humbly come before Him to receive His blessings.
LORD Jesus, I come before You to confess my sinfulness and doubt.
I’ve been unbelieving or half-hearted in my belief and trust in Your promises.
Please forgive me LORD, I am sorry!
Renew me in Your love and righteousness as I raise my heart up to You again.
Please give me the gifts and graces that I need to receive and manifest Your promises.
Above all, please send me Your Holy Spirit for I literally cannot live without Him living in me.
Come Holy Spirit, fill me and never depart from me all my days and even when I see You God as You truly are.
Always & Forever,
To the Lamb,
With all my ❤
