S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
When the proconsul saw what had happened, he believed, for he was amazed at the teaching about the Lord.
Paul and Barnabas were on their first missionary journey together in Cyprus. They went through the entire island and came to a city known as Paphos. When they arrived there, they met a false prophet named Elymas, who was also an associate of the proconsul Sergius Paulus. The proconsul sent for Paul and Barnabus in order to hear about their God. But this false prophet named Elymas was such a hindrance to Paul and Barnabas that Paul turned and rebuked him and caused him to become blind for a season. The Bible says that when the proconsul saw this happen, he became a believer because he also was amazed at these men’s teaching about the Lord. But, “Certainly A Miracle Helps.”
The early church grew especially in Rome and then throughout Asia Minor because of the willingness of every Jesus Follower to be willing to sacrifice their lives for God. So make no mistake about it; the early Christians were more than willing to suffer, bleed and die if need be for their faith. However, what the early church also had was the miracle-working power of God. And you could preach all day, and people would get saved, but then miracles would begin to flow, and when they did, it made evangelism so much easier. And the people were saved by a powerful word from a humble brother or sister in the Lord. Yet it’s still true, “Certainly A Miracle Helps!”
There are no English words to adequately describe my personal love and devotion for you, dear Lord. Yet as much as I’ve established myself in local towns and cities across more than fifty years of ministry, I’m still not satisfied. Help me with my remaining years to continue believing in miracles to assist in the mission! Amen
