Dear Friend,

Last week we talked about Elijah’s act of faith. When people around Elijah reported that there was poison in the pot of stew they were eating, Elijah threw flour into the pot and then said, “It’s all good now. Go ahead and eat it.” Now, we know that flour does not kill poison—but faith in God does kill poison!

Elijah walked in the Spirit and God showed him to throw the flour into the pot of stew as an act of faith. Afterward, everyone ate the stew without getting sick.

We know that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. But the Bible also tells us that the Lord will give us gifts of faith and the working of miracles. (See 1 Corinthians 12:28). We know that God did extraordinary miracles through the hands of Paul.

God gave Paul the power to perform unusual miracles.
When handkerchiefs or aprons that had merely touched his skin were
placed on sick people, they were healed of their diseases, and evil spirits were expelled.

Acts 19:11,12 (NLT)

Notice that God gave Paul the power to perform such unusual miracles. I’ve seen people healed by touching handkerchiefs that were prayed over by believers. This week let faith arise in your soul to believe God to do extraordinary miracles in your life and in the lives of the people He’s placed around you.

With God, nothing is impossible!
