Tap In!

One day I was looking out my window when a raven, a biblically unclean bird, came and perched on the phone line. I jokingly told him to go to the trash bin where he could find a whole host of goodies. Now I realize, my dear reader, you may be asking yourself why would I speak to a bird? But lest I remind you, as I did myself, that Jesus said, “…the birds of the air…neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns [but] my heavenly Father feeds them…” (Matthew 6:26), which at the time I needed a reminder of how He would do the same for me. Yet somehow, in that moment, God revealed that He didn’t give that ability to the enemy, He gave it to His children. And in a split second, I saw what He meant.

You see, as Christians, we tend to believe that witches, warlocks and sorcerers are the only ones that have supernatural ability, access, or power to speak, see, morph, and change things. As such, we’ve kinda just left that knowledge, and those abilities…over there…for them…mistakenly believing they’re the only ones who can cause such things to happen or operate in the the supernatural. But that’s when God reminded me of Jesus and how….

1. He spoke to the fig tree.

2. When He walked on the water.

3. When He spoke to the hurricane-like winds.

4. When He turned dirt into an eye, and…

5. When He turned five loaves and two fish into enough food that fed thousands.

That wasn’t some wizard…that was Jesus! Yet when it comes to us needing something seemingly impossible, we tend to believe we can do nothing about it. Like we can’t speak to the birds, fig trees and storms in our own lives.

We ignorantly believe that we have to depend on some horoscope to tell us what the day holds or talk to some psychic in order to know who’s coming down the road.

But God never intended for spiritists, witches, and the like to be the only ones to have that ability. Jesus said that, ‘…the Spirit of truth [would] guide [us] into all truth…and…tell [us] things to come.’ (John 16:13) Not some medium or spiritual advisor yielding to familiar spirits.
