WE ARE FOR SIGNS AND WONDERS
Isaiah 8:18 NKJV "Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel From the Lord of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion."
A sign is defined as "something conveying idea: an action or gesture used to convey an idea, information, a wish, or a command." A sign is also an example. There are both good and bad signs. Psalm 71:7 says David was a sign to many. Luke 11:30 says Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites. Numbers 26:9-10 says Korah and his company were a sign. In history there are men and women who have also stood out as either good or bad signs.
When God says we are for signs and wonders, here He's not saying we will do signs and wonders, He meant that you and I will be conveyors of His might, His authority, His message, His goodness, His glory, and His love to the rest of the world. In other words, men will look at you and say, "How come?" and you will reply, "It's God!" Even Satan and his cohorts will marvel!
In year 2014, through you, God will prove to the world that He is all that He said He is! Through you, God will remind the world that He's still the same today as He was yesterday, and in control! He will bless you, provide for you, deliver you, prosper you, promote you, keep you, heal you and give you victories over all your foes! And when they begin to happen, remember why! It is because you are a sign and a wonder to your world! Hallelujah!
