DOING EXTRAORDINARY THINGS
Judges 14:6 NKJV "And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him,
and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat,
though he had nothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or
his mother what he had done."
Wow! Did you just read that? Samson tore a lion apart with
bare hands! Amazing! The Spirit of the Lord descended mightily upon him
and he did what could not have been done by natural strength.
That's the key to doing extraordinary things; the
power of the Spirit, the anointing. There's a limit to what a man can
achieve with his strength, his intelligence, his knowledge, experience
and his skills; not by might, not by power, but by the Spirit of God!
The anointing is not only for killing lions, Jesus and the apostles did
not kill physical lions, they used the power to do good, to do miracles
and to heal all who were oppressed by the devil. Samson killed the lion
without a weapon! Maybe people have told you that you are not gifted,
or that you are not well educated, or that you have no connections and
long legs, or that you broke; hear me, we are talking about the same
power by which the world was created! Have you received the Holy Ghost
since you believed? Then you too can do exploits!
