“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16:17-18
SIGNS of a healthy, growing CHURCH are emerging today…salvations, healings, and deliverances. Individuals are finding that in Jesus’ Name they can “cast out devils” of carnality, fear, unbelief, slothfulness, and depression from their very own lives!
It is nice to see a sign on the Road of God’s Perfect Will. A sign does not mean you have arrived; a sign means you are on the way. You may pass a sign on the highway which says: “Orlando, 90 miles.” The sign does not mean you have reached Orlando, but it tells you you are on the right road!
SIGNS are often few and far between. That is why it is necessary to have a road map to direct you to your destination. God’s Word is your road map for your spiritual journey. You need to study it while on this highway of life. Familiarity with the road map brings faith, and God’s abiding presence becomes your guide.
SIGNS are a nice confirmation of being on the right road, but they “follow them that believe.” Belief comes by faith and knowledge of God’s Word.
PRAY: “Heavenly Father, thank You for Your concern that I stay on the right road. Open my understanding as I study Your perfect-will road map. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
