Jesus told His disciples, “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father,” John 14:12. Jesus expects that His church will perform miracles, not in their own strength, but in the power of the Holy Spirit. God always answers our prayer if it’s about carrying forward the work Jesus did, for the glory of God. We may not always see the results straight away but God always acts if we intercede on behalf of others. Let’s make 2018 a year where we expect God to move when we intercede. Let’s come with anticipation when we gather. Let’s get excited about God! So shake off that burden that you carry, and choose to live in hope.
