One of the most important lessons I’ve learned through years of studying the Bible and doing ministry work is that we gain greater authority when we understand our call. The Lord’s gift to us in Jesus is one of impartation; in other words, He has given us His Spirit to make us holy and powerful like He is. Though it can feel uncomfortable to grasp this because we are fallible and broken people, as Christians, our impact in the world increases hugely when we understand that we are chosen to give sight to an invisible God. Our Savior no longer walks among us, but as His disciples, we are conduits of His presence and power to other people. When we lay hands on someone and pray for them, it’s as if Jesus Himself is laying His hands on them. And when we go forth to serve a neighbor or care for a friend, it carries the same spiritual clout as if it were our Lord in the flesh. The Word of God is either true or it isn’t, and if we say it’s our final authority, it’s imperative that we not shrink back from our anointing. We are chosen to carry the fullness of Christ to people in broken jars of clay, and when the Church walks in this awakening, the earth will be changed for the better!
My friend, you have the honor and privilege of giving sight to an invisible God. As a disciple of Jesus, you are full of the Holy Spirit, and the same power that lives in Him resides in you. Therefore, be bold in faith and step out in your anointing, knowing that your hands are His hands and your feet are His feet. Catch the vision of His Kingdom and let Him bring Heaven to earth through you as you pray for, encourage, and invite healing on behalf of others — whether the sick, the sinful, or the saints.
