that He will perform wonders in your own life, so that you can testify that you
have experienced His wonder-working power, in Jesus’ Name. Beyond this however,
do you know that God can turn you into a wonder? For instance, look at the mad
man of Gadara. He was so mad that all hope was lost concerning his recovery;
but when Jesus touched his life, he was seen not only in his right senses, but
also decently dressed and even evangelising the goodness of the Lord. [Friday
June 23, 2017]. Many people who saw him were amazed and had their doubts as to
whether he was the same person who once terrorised the community (Mark 5:20).
He became a wonder! Lazarus, who had been dead for four days, also became a
wonder and a tourist attraction after he was raised from the dead. John 12:9
says this about him:
“Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not
for Jesus’ sake only, but they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from
Service we held at the National Stadium, Surulere (Lagos), there was a man with
a huge growth attached to his neck sitting beside a particular woman. The
growth was so huge that it overshadowed his face. While the programme was on,
the woman sitting beside him kept peeping at the protruding growth. During the sermon,
the word of God came that there was someone in attendance with a huge growth
around the neck and that it had gone. On hearing this, the woman sitting next
to this man immediately turned to look at him and it was as if the growth
suddenly grew wings, flew away and disappeared. This woman was so amazed at
this wonder that after the programme was over, she had already trekked from the
stadium to Palmgrove, a distance of about 5km, before she remembered that she
had left her car parked in the parking lot inside the stadium. When God turns
you into a wonder, even sceptics will find it difficult to doubt your testimony
because it will be so profound. Also, your life will become a perpetual
signpost for God’s Name to be glorified. Are you in dire need of a miracle?
Beyond that need, ask God to make you a living wonder for the glory of His
Name. This season, as the Lord turns you into a wonder, the same mouths that
have mocked you and challenged your God will become the instruments for
spreading your testimony and for reverencing your God! Worship the Almighty God
who alone can make you a wonder.
