"What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?"
Being stirred in my spirit from reading the book "The New Proof Producers" by Morris Cerulla, the Lord had me look at my hands and ask this question, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?", and then the Holy Spirit said, "The keys are in your hands." He said, "These signs will follow them that believe, they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover. They will be like a tree that is firmly planted by the water that bears its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither, and whatever they put their hands to will prosper." He said, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you will be My witness. When you believe and receive, My power will flow through your hands and whatever you put your hands to will prosper, it will be blessed, it will be healed and it will glorify My name."
Then He began to show me how electric power is created and released by two wires touching one another, a positive and a negative wire that have come in contact with one another. When an electrician cuts away and strips the insulation off the wire and wraps them together and then flips the switch, an electric current of power flows through them. To get the power to flow you've got to have a negative and a positive wire, and you've got to have stripped the plastic coating or insulation off, and then you've got to touch the two wires together and flip the switch on to send the power through it.
To see God's power released in your life, you need a negative situation that needs a positive charge and release of His power. It may be someone with a critical sickness or disease that needs healing. It may be a financial situation that's deep in the red, a debt that needs to be cleared. Or it may be an unsaved family member that is in the world and caught up in negative circumstances that needs to be broken. As a born again believer when you take this negative situation, and by faith bring it before the Lord in prayer, laying your hands and heart on it, God releases His power through your hands and His words of life spoken over it. You become His conduit to release His power through. Your eyes are not upon the situation, only your hands are. Your eyes are focused upon Jesus, the One with the power, the Creator God, the Healer and Provider, the Author and Finisher of your faith, the Source of your divine inheritance that has been appointed and predestined for you for this good work that He has prepared beforehand that you should walk in. But first, like the insulated wire, you've got to be stripped of self. First you've got to be stripped of all self-effort and all thoughts and attitude of self-accomplishment. "Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains by itself; but if it dies, it produces much fruit." So when you've laid it all down, when you've been stripped of all self and self-effort, when it's all been laid on the altar of sacrifice to be consumed by His fire, when all that you have and all you desire is Jesus, and you are looking to Him alone to produce the power, that's when He comes and connects to your heart and releases His divine love that produces the current and power that begins to manifest the desires that HE has put on your heart. His love has always been there for you, that hasn't changed, but now as you are stripped of self, you're able to be a clear receiver of more of His love and enter into that divine connection of His supernatural power. You're able to partner with the Creator God to prophesy life, healing and prosperity into the negative situation and be that positive charge and conduit of His blessing.
Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, and He is seated now at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for us. We are His Body and Bride that He loves and has given His life for. We are His pride and joy, and we are here on this earth to be His hands, arms, and mouthpiece. He said those things that He did we will do also and greater things will we do because He goes to the Father. He wants to release His power through us, through His Bride the Church, to be "proof producers", to be His witness in this world that He is alive and living in us, and that His power and life flowing through us is the proof and evidence of it.
What is it that God would have you lay hands on today? What is something negative that needs His positive life and power flowing to it to be transformed and recreated for His glory? Let God challenge your faith and step out by His leading and lay your hands on that situation or that person that needs healing, and speak life and healing into them. Give God an opportunity to show Himself mighty through your faith as you yield to Him and give yourself to be His conduit of blessing.
So, Lord, we lay it all down for You, so that You may be glorified through us, so that You may use our hands to release Your power and healing and grace through. We give all to You that we may receive ALL OF You. Jesus, You are all we need. You are all we want and desire. Come and pour Your Spirit upon us, upon Your Church, upon Your Bride, and let us be all that You've called and desired us to be. Come and pour Your Spirit upon us that we may be Your "proof producers" and magnify Your name here in the earth. You said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be open to you." We ask, Father, that You would pour out Your Spirit and send Your power, manifesting it through our lives and through our hands in this desperate hour for Your glory. Amen and amen
