God is Going Public

The Lord is saying that this is the time I go public. This is the time when what I’ve been doing in My Church goes outside the church. This is when the miracles begin to happen in the parking lot of the grocery stores or the breakroom at the office or at the parks or in the school classrooms—wherever you happen to be living life. There will be more miracles this year outside of the four walls of the church than inside the four walls.

“So they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.” (Acts 5:15-16; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. The Bible is full of stories about God healing the sick. All of those healings happened outside the synagogues, out where the people lived. Let’s repent today for expecting God to work inside our boxes, our churches, only. Repent also of the fear of man.

  2. Read Acts 3:1 through 4:31. Pray this prayer and really mean it: “And now, Lord, take note of their intimidations intended to silence us. Grant us, Your servants, the courageous confidence we need to go ahead and proclaim Your message while You reach out Your hand to heal people, enabling us to perform signs and wonders through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” (Acts 4:29-30; The Voice)

  3. If you get the opportunity to ask the Lord for a miracle for someone today as you go about your daily routine, do it!

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, You healed the sick and worked all kinds of miracles every day. You worked these miracles outside where the people lived. The apostles did the very same thing. So why do we Christians today think we need to get people into our church buildings where our pastors can pray for them to be healed? Please forgive us, Lord! We are afraid of what people will think of us! Hear my prayer from Your Word: “And now, Lord, take note of (society’s) intimidations intended to silence us. Grant us, Your servants, the courageous confidence we need to go ahead and proclaim Your message while You reach out Your hand to heal people, enabling us to perform signs and wonders through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” Amen!

Today’s decree:

Our nation will be radically changed as the Church starts to work miracles everywhere we go every day!
