If you are a Christian and want to know how to operate in the spiritual gift of working of miracles then the following is for you. The first thing that you need to know is that to operate in this gift you need to love your neighbor as yourself. This is the primary foundation for working miracles. Why? Let's find out.
In Galatians 5:22,23 we read, "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law. The key to start with is that "against such there is no law." When you work a miracle it means that you are superseding the laws of nature, but not the law of God. What comes into play is the scripture in Romans 8:2, "The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." It is this law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus that allows us to operate with the gift of the Holy Spirit of the working of miracles.
Also keep in mind that even though we are working a miracle, it is in reality the Holy Spirit who manifests the miracle or brings it to pass. So what is needed to operate in this particular gift of the Spirit? The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus means that Christ is living his life in and through us as Christians. This involves the fruit of the Spirit in its entirety: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. That is why against such things such as these there is no law, because this is the highest law you can get. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus or the very life of Christ Jesus is being lived and manifested through us as Christians.
The other side of the coin is the law of the law of sin and death. Galatians 5:19-21 indicates what is involved so that a person does not inherit the kingdom of God. They are the works of the flesh which are: adultery, fornication (which is where we get our word for porn from), uncleanness (homosexual activity and other deviant sexual behaviors), lasciviousness, idolatry (you can throw the love of money in here too), witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and such things like these which increases and compounds this list with everything else in like manner.
Let's examine each of the fruit of the Spirit and how it pertains to working miracles.
Love covers working a miracle in the spiritual realm of man. The greatest miracle is that of a person receiving Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior and being born again. When you have this fruit being manifested and you are working a miracle it means that you are giving the love and the very life of God to someone through the preaching of the gospel. God wants all men to be saved and it is only through the preaching of the gospel that this can be done. So by speaking words of life to another through the preaching of the gospel of Christ you work a miracle in their spirit when they receive Jesus as Lord and Savior and are born again by the Spirit of God.
Joy covers working a miracle in the emotional realm of man. The bible says that the joy of the Lord is your strength. This miracle can be worked by kind words to a troubled soul. It can be worked by thinking of things that make you laugh and then following up with action by putting a smile on your face. When you smile it changes your thinking to happy. So smile and give a smile to others as you greet them. And when you smile say only those things that are uplifting in nature. And smile and use your own will to dwell on those things that make you happy and that would make you happy as opposed to those things that make you sad or bad as far as circumstances. acim now app delight yourself in the Lord and not in anything that is part of or offered by this world.
Peace is working a miracle in the financial or provision realm of man. If you trust anything or anyone as your provider other than the Lord you are in trouble. The Lord is your provider. Your job or business is just an avenue through which the Lord provides. True peace in finances in the face of job or financial loss comes only when you know and trust the Lord as your provider. That does not mean that you do not work. You do work. And the best work that you can do and get paid for it is preaching the gospel of Christ. The bible says in John 4:36, "And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal." When the Lord is your provider he will cause you to be provided for no matter what happens contrary as long as you don't limit him with how he provides with your own ideas.
Longsuffering is working a miracle in the protection realm of man. Many times whether we know it or not we need protection. We need protection from others, from Satan and demonic activity, from things and circumstances, and even from our own mistakes and failures. Longsuffering will give us physical and emotional strength as well as strength of mind. It enables us to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage and grit, backbone and guts.
Gentleness is working a miracle in the social realm of man. It is the standing firm in moral excellence of your character and not giving in to the temptations and the sins of this world. It will cause your light to so shine before men that they will glorify God. For blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. And you will see God for it is this gentleness that will open up the spiritual realm for you to overcome in your life and command evil to leave in the lives of others who desire to be set free.
Goodness is the working a miracle in the physical realm of man. Goodness is the very strength and vigor and vitality of God flowing through you and that can flow into others when you lay your hands on them in the name of Jesus Christ and they are healed by the power of the Spirit of God
