Want to see God’s power? Do Something
Derrick and Kim D’Souza of Kingdom Seekers International share how you can access God’s power as you step out in faith and do something for God’s Kingdom.
We have walked into this year with these two words from the Holy Spirit: “DO SOMETHING!” Let’s fix our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith and step out and do something for the Kingdom of God.
This is in keeping with James 2:26 – “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.” We have already gained enough knowledge. We have been hearing and hearing enough and we have we have been prayed over and prophesied upon enough. It’s time we DID something! Because faith without ‘action’ is dead.
The Bible is filled with stories of men and women who saw the power of God being released in their day and time when they believed God and DID something. Noah was mocked at, Daniel was conspired against, Shadrach Meshach and Abednego were thrown in fire, Peter and Paul were beaten. But God spoke and they DID something. Many times they DID something, and then God spoke. The result? Impossibilities became possibilities. Supernatural became oh! so natural.
Sadly we are so puffed up with knowledge about them and we want to see God do in our lives what He did in theirs, but we are not willing to DO SOMETHING.
The proof that we believe something isn’t when we just agree with what someone teaches us, but it’s when – we act on it and – “do something”
The Old Testament saw people do something when the Spirit of God came upon them and empowered them, how much more should we in the new covenant “do something”, since we have the Spirit of God on the inside of us?
You see the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. And God’s power shows up only when we take the risk of “doing what He is asks of us” – that is to Become His witnesses.
So, let’s get in the battlefield. Let’s preach the Gospel and lay hands on the sick.
Let’s DO SOMETHING that we have never done before for Jesus. And we will see God show up like never before!
Start by intentionally pursuing Jesus over everything else.
Move beyond proclaiming the name of Jesus within the four walls of the church. Carry this boldness outside the church- into your workplaces, into your schools and colleges, into your homes, streets and cities.
Don’t do what you can do. You don’t need the Holy Spirit to do what you can do. You don’t need faith to live the normal. But hear Jesus and trust Him to DO SOMETHING you have never done before. And then, you will see Jesus showing up like never before.
So Start. DO SOMETHING. If not now, then when? If not we, then who?
