The awesome power of God seems to get overlooked by most people. The miracles performed by Jesus and His apostles are so long ago we tend to discount them as something of the past – something unavailable to us today. While there are some Christian denominations that believe healing powers are still present among believers, I have not seen any documented evidence. Before the New Testament was written, miracles were needed to spread the gospel; but now we have the written doctrine and that is the tool we are to lean on in this present time. Nevertheless, God’s awesome power has not gone away. Miracles of God happen all around us on a daily basis. God is still healing and raising people from the dead but He is doing so on His own terms and at His own personal discretion.
By following the teaching of Jesus we have the ability to access the awesome power of God. Aside from our love for God, Jesus taught us to share that love with all those around us. Love is the conduit through which God’s power flows.
Near the end of chapter nine in the Book of Acts, the apostle Peter is called on to rescue a woman named Tabitha from death. You’ll notice Peter goes to his knees to help Tabitha, something Jesus never did when performing miracles. We also have the ability to access the awesome power of God by going to our knees and acting out of sincere love for God. While we may not be able to perform miracles, we are able to make a firm connection to the perfect will of God.
“Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.” Acts 9:40 (NIV)
